The hotel has slightly basic but comfortable rooms, offers a nice view of the city and the F&B manager is very pleasant and enthusiastic about special requests (we were travelling with an infant so wanted something off the set dinner menu). The staff is very courteous and pleasant. The restaurant seating area isn't very big so in peak season, it could get busy.

Hotel Thilanka have a very friendly staff and a nice location in town. The view from our room was good, but it was a bit disturbing that the hotel also have cameras pointed directly at our terasse. Be aware that the pool is not there anymore, they are building a new one, but the work seams to have stopped a while ago. Generally the maintenance standard is low/medium. The restatant is good, well spiced for our european taste, but not too hot. Cosy eating area too. We are sure that the hotel could get a star more, when all the turists (money) is back and the pool is done. Always a bit scary with a big hotel with almost no guests.

This is 4 star hotel situated away from busy Kandy city. Swimming pool is perfect and the pool side bar is so amazing. Has bird eye view of the city. Not that much busy you can spend your evening so quietly there. Beer and all prices are reasonable. Love the hotel so much
