Set in hill above Kandy offering great views of city but without the noise. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms well appointed, buffet breakfast offered a great choice and dinner options were good, staff lovely and attentive. I was lucky enough to get a suite so had extra luxury, recommended

Having traveled around Sri Lanka for 2 and a half weeks staying in fairly budget accommodation, my boyfriend and I decided to treat ourselves and stay here. I can safely say this hotel is no better than the £15 a night places we stayed during the rest of our trip. We arrived at the hotel firstly to be questioned by... More
