We stayed here for 2 nights but had a hectic schedule which meant we couldn't use all of the facilities the hotel offered (hence dropping a star as we can't rate the massage facilities) We were given a large room with private balcony and beautiful views of the river and valley. The hotel dogs were lovely and very friendly (pets...

Even if the noisy mattress did not ruin your stay we would have appreciated once you told us. But thank you for mentioning this now - so that we have a chance to rectify this trouble. We are doing a lot to keep everything in place and in working condition - but we do not sleep in the beds -...

It was a delight to stay in the fabulous and elegant Villa Rosa. It is 'the' hotel to stay at while in Kandy. Almost hidden from the surrounding city, and nestled in the beautiful hills that surround Kandy, the hotel is only a 10 minutes drive from the city centre. The location really couldn't be better as you can get...

I shan't forgetting eating breakfast on the terrace and taking in the stunning views below us - and what a breakfast, particularly the banana pancakes! After all the bustle of Kandy, it was great to be driven up the long, winding road to the gentle charms of Villa Rosa. I loved it!

We stayed at the Villa Rosa 4 years ago and wanted to return for a longer and even more relaxed stay. On this occasion we stayed 4 nights and booked the same room, 3 which has a wonderful view of the river and a wrap around balcony. We were not disappointed. Our second visit was as wonderful again. It is...

We are happy and proud, that guests come again to Villa Rosa after 4 years, and they still find enough good reasons to appreciate what we are doing and they notice, everything is functioning very well even if the owner is not around! I took a chance to look what is happening in the neighborhood as far as tourism is...

We spent two days at Villa Rosa while visiting the area. The views from the main hotel are wonderful, but we stayed in a room in an adjacent building with no views which was a shame, so will stay in the main house next time. The staff were really friendly, helpful and welcoming. The hotel is very relaxed and unpretentious,...

Villa Rosa is famous for the view - but it is true, you do not have a direct view to the river and the mountains from all rooms. That is why there are price differences - even if the rooms are large and comfortable as the guests mention. But once you leave what ever room it is and you walk...

My wife and I stayed here for just two nights whilst traveling throughout Sri Lanka. Firstly the view from the hotel is beautiful looking down into the river valley. The food is top class, the service second to none, the value for money unquestionable. Volker (the owner) and his staff make your stay like a home away from home. We...

This hotel was one of the highlights of our Sri Lankan tour. After a hectic few weeks travelling around Sri Lanka we were just happy to put our feet up here and enjoy the peace and calm as well as the stunning view. The staff were absolutely first class and from the minute we arrived until we left they couldn't...

We are proud that our guests appreciate not only the location and the rooms but also the food we are serving - and we observed that more and more guests are just coming over for lunch or dinner, even if they do not stay in Villa Rosa. We have not promoted that much, but perhaps we should, because our walk...

This is a very special boutique hotel, where the service provided is 5*. This is not a glossy hotel, but is perfect in every way. The setting is beautiful, with views down the river. The hotel style is comfortable. We had a super room with a large terrace, with table and chairs for our dining and loungers for our relaxation....

I wasn't around for more than 2 weeks while these guests were with us and I am proud, that the Villa Rosa team ran the place also in my absence to the full satisfaction of our guests - as Jane explained in her review. We were able to establish ourselves in a highly competitive market during the last 13 years...

Tucked away on a hill roughly 10 minutes drive away from Kandy centre you can find the little gem - Villa Rosa. We started our honeymoon there - of course in the honeymoon suite - and had a superb experience. The team is just great, the rooms are wonderful and the hotel just has a really nice vibe to it....

We are proud to cater for different kinds of guests - the honeymoon couples, the young families (we have special children's chairs for the small fellows), friends and other small groups and experienced senior travelers in Villa Rosa - with or without the owner being around. For us it is important to offer a little bit more to our guests...
