She's a stately old lady but she has charm and grace and she does what she says on the tin. I like her. The evening bar and dining area is a delightful. There is an authentic old-school gentle nostalgia. I felt I should be drinking lots of gin and wearing my hair in victory rolls. The rooms are clean, with...

We stayed in April in this charming colonial style hotel for two nights as part of a week long roundtrip. We enjoyed the historical, a bit nostalgic ambience with remnants of old glorious times. The hotel is said to the second oldest in Kandy and enjoys a wonderful location across the Tooth Temple on the shores of Kandy lake. We...

I believe the hotel building was once a miltary hospital. High ceilings, large airy windows and doors with furniture reminiscent of a bygone era. The staff is friendly, but some of them seemed a little less efficient than what we saw in the rest of Sri Lanka. The rooms are nice and big. Wifi is spotty to non existent in...

As the title says I have stayed in plenty of better hotels but there's something about this old girl that makes me like her. Stacks of old colonial charm, with a bit of imagination you could be meeting the 'Fortesque Joneses' for Gin and Tonic in the bar, or see the Union Jack bunting that must have hung from the...

This hotel was once the icon of old world charm; sadly however those days have long since gone. Whilst it still retains its historic charm it also retains its historic plumbing and facilities. The hotel is in need of a major overhaul before it looses any more of its charm. The position is excellent however there is major traffic noise...

We stayed two nights at Hotel Suisse. We arrived late afternoon and we were quickly checked in and shown to our room.

We stayed in Suisse hotel for 3 nights. I think it is the closest hotel to Kandy city with calm environment. Staff were always helpful and cheerful. You can book this hotel online and once you produce the lodging voucher at the hotel premises they will give the room keys. That really time saving. We selected standard rooms and those...

Although we only stayed one night in this hotel we really enjoyed it. Lovely rooms, with small balconies, friendly helpful staff and beautiful bar area. Lovely views out over the lake in Kandy and surrounding area. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great oasis, fantastic building, great staff very friendly and brilliant breakfast! Highly recommend taking advantage of the tour/drivers that the hotel offers. For a mid afternoon snack the hotel bar serves deviled meats from the grill, spicy and ideal.
