Nice hotel and views. The food was also nice, like the staff. The hotel is well located and the silent area fits perfect to relax and have a nice holiday with your family. The Support of the manager was extraordinary!

Negatives WiFi only in the lobby area. Beds not comfortable as mattress springs gone. Hot water lasts only for few minutes and will have to wait for water to heat up again. Could brighten up the common areas with a coat of fresh paint Positives Air con and fan was working. Staff extremely polite and welcoming. Breakfast was good

Hotel is situated on the river side and one can have natural and beautiful view of Kandy. Rooms are kept clean and can relax in balcony and swimming pool facility available. Though they have plugged wi-fi instrument, no wi-fi was available. Restaurant facilities are available on the ground floor. Entrance to the hotel is in narrow lane, our driver find it little difficult in turning the van and to move on the steep rise to reach the hotel.
