We had lunch here on the way in to Kandy. Great selection available. It's 1300lkr pp and drinks cost around 4500+. Both local and non local foods on offer. The toilets were relatively clean. Open balcony area which was nice but can get hot if the sun is out. It's also a hotel but judging by the road it's on,... More

We stayed here for 2 days about a week ago. Although said to be in Kandy, it's actually about 3km from Kandy, which can take you easily 20 minutes to reach. It's squeezed between a busy road on one side and a even busier road+traintrack on the other. The food (buffet-style) o.k. lot of variety, but could be better. Breakfasts... More

As we had been travelling for several hours, our driver took us to this restaurant for lunch. It was already busy when we arrived, and we waited several minutes before the table to which we were allocated was cleared of dirty plates. The lunch that we had was not expensive at 1300SLR per person but was, at best, only mediocre.... More

Located on the Kandy-Peradeniya road, this hotel has all the facilities. The staff is good and helpful. There's a great arts and craft center in the same building and has variety of traditional Sri Lankan hand crafts.

Our tuk tuk driver dropped us here for lunch and it turned out to be possibly the worst restaurant experience of my life. We should have turned around as soon as we saw the hordes of tour buses parked outside. Indeed, the place was full of huge tour groups, and had the inflated prices to match. The restaurant is on...

We came to Sri Lanka to see the culture and eat the food. However the tour guides have to take you to registered places. This is one of these. The cost is 1200lkr excluding the tax and 10% service which we objected to as it was a buffet so you served yourself. We ate well in Negombo for half that... More

This hotel is good, but nothing that makes it stand out. The bedroom was fine and the location was ok for access into Kandy. The food was ok too with a large buffet style selection making it easy to choose different curries whilst also catering for more western foods. Being quite tall and on the side of a hill, the...

I stayed here for a business trip. The hotel is nice and clean, the rooms are basic but large and the staff are really friendly and accommodating. The roof top restaurant has a lovely view, the breakfast and lunch were both really nice. The buffet lunch is a bit hit and miss but generally high a standard. The hotel is... More
