Best was the view - but the rest.... Rooms big and clean but so noisy as if you live on the aisle. Food the worst we had on our tour an the Restaurant was like a cantine of the former German DDR..... not charming at all. Staff was OK Overall by far too expensive

What a hotel- absolutely brilliant from check in to stay to check out. Prompt, kind and very friendly staff. Views from the hotel are mesmerizing over Kandy. Rooms are very comfortable. Restaurant is superb- could not ask for anything better. Definitely recommended.

nice place.. good view & location. when you come to kady you climb up the Topaz Hill and reach the hotel.. this is situated in a beautiful hill top in asgiriya. once you are there you feel the real upcountry weather surrounded by hills.. wonderful place to visit with a nice swimming pool and recommend this for Honey mooners too..

We stayed at this hotel as we were travelling from Kalutara on an excursion. The hotel grounds were really nice, up in the hills with an amazing view! First impressions were really good, the lobby was spacious, the staff were really nice and they had live music playing. We were taken to our room which was really nice, the AC... More

Very impressed with this hotel during our two nights stay in Kandy. Our room was fantastic - surely one of the best in the hotel. The room was a corner room with two large windows and spectacular views. The hotel must recently have had a refurbishment - the furnishings and decor are all very modern and smart. We used the...

From the outside images of the hotel it looked a bit 'tired' and possibly in the same ilk as Fawlty Towers. We were very wrong. This is a modern, well maintained, clean and comfortable hotel. The staff were very accommodating and helpful and always greeted us with a smile. The rooms were lovely and the views over Kandy quite spectacular.... More

Took a two day trip up to Kandy to visit a number of places and stopped off overnight at this hotel. It was booked by our guide, so with a degree of trust. When we arrived we were very surprised and very pleased with the choice. Our overnight stay included dinner and breakfast which was perfect as we were pretty... More

We stayed in Sri Lanka as part of a 3 destination holiday, this hotel was not part of our trip, but part of a 2 day tour we booked with our rep at the original hotel, and what a delight it was. We were upgraded to a suite, which was fantastic, with a lovely double jacuzzi, sitting/dining area and lovely... More

Hotel room was clean. Nice valley view from room. We arrived late at night and it was difficult finding the way. Getting the hotel reception on the phone also was not possible. For tourists this could be very difficult. On two occasions we wanted to eat one of the items in the buffet and were told that it is over.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Topaz was built in 1976 and fashioned after a much loved gem stone found in Sri Lanka. Considering its situation in the hill capital of Kandy, the last royal stronghold in the country, Hotel Topaz is considered the jewel in the crown of Kandy.Nestled amidst lush tropical greenery, surrounded by the distinctive Knuckles Mountain range and Bible Rock, enveloped in the cool winds blowing through the mountains, Hotel Topaz offers something for everyone.The short distance away from the city centre itself, lends the hotel and its guests maximum accessibility no matter what the choice of activity is. However Hotel Topaz offers guests a tranquil setting and the option of exploring the city’s rich heritage in style and comfort.The warm and personal service serves to truly bring out the widely famed Sri Lankan hospitality. Guests at Hotel Topaz are made to feel at home, and explore the surrounding gardens or have a cocktail or high-tea on our famous rooftop terrace with its 360 degree view of the city and its hills. ... more   less
