We stayed for three night and enjoyed out stay. Amenities are great - lovely swimming pool - and room was more than adequate if a little tired. Staff are very helpful although the service in the bar was at best haphazard. The location is great being directly opposite Lake Kandy

Great location, just across the road from the Temple of the Tooth and the lake. Large hotel and getting to the rooms was a bit of a maze, constantly having to go up one flight of stairs only to go back down again and then up again. Took a while to get the route right. Room

"Choose a different hotel"
"Rooms overlooking the lake would be the ideal"
"Traffic noise is just part of the deal given location, but ask for a room with view of the Lake if possible."
"Choose a rrom at the back of the hotel, over looking the pool. Much quieter because you dont the noise from the traffic."
"One must pre-book the accommodation for getting competitive rates."
$71 - $270 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
