Came for 2 nights and it felt a little strange to be almost the only people staying here. We were the only people in the restaurant and the public area downstairs. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The De Luxe room was large and very comfortable ....one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in. Sitting on the balcony we had awesome views overlooking Kandy. Dinner and breakfast were offered as set menus with an excellent choice. Although the "Western breakfast" was poor the "Sri Lankan" breakfast which we had the following day was really good. There was excellent service from the friendly staff. The surprise birthday cake which they gave me at breakfast was a nice touch and I am very appreciative for the kind thought. The same goes to the room boy who also kindly gave me birthday wishes . This is one of the most comfortable hotels I have ever stayed in . Highly recommended.

The hotel is located in a beautiful area.As I entered the lobby,there was a wonderful, friendly and helpful staff, with smiles that made my day. Along the way, there was a lovely lady who explained the covid 19 guidelines. There after a kind gentleman showed me the way to my room. The room was neat and tidy, with eye-catching modern furniture.The meals were delicious too. Overall,it was an amazing and spectacular experience.I'll be back soon to enjoy once again.Keep up the good work!

We reserved the Grand kandyan hotel from 31st July to 2nd August for our branch annual trip. Even though it was around 12.10 am when we arrived at the hotel, we were warmly welcomed by the staff. They were extremely friendly and polite and make you feel you are really taken care of. Quality food and excellent restaurant. Rooms were super comfortable and the interiors were elegant and eye catching. We all had a wonderful stay at the hotel and we would definitely recommend the hotel as one othe best for an office trip or a family outing. Special thank goes to Mr. Lakindu for his tremendous support given to us in room arrangement and organizing events. The Grand Kandyan as the name it self says is indeed Grand.

We visited the hotel on 31st july for 02 nights & the 01st impression of the hotel was wow!!. We checked in to the hotel around 1.00 a.m (early morning) but they treated us in a very friendly manner. Rooms, foods, service etc was really awesome & one of the best hotels i ever visited sofar. They have followed safety measures due to COVID19 outbreak too. I ordered a small B'Day cake from them for my child's B'Day & it was arranged in the room free of charge. Restaurant staff were really friendly & since we have 02 small children & when we go to the restaurant, they really helped us too. It was just one ofthe best hotels I visited not only in Sri Lanka but also in other countries too.. LOVE YOU ALL & im definitely gonna visit you once again.... LOVE YOU...
