We only stayed for one night and the hotel is clearly undergoing some maintenance improvements and for one night (as in a place to sleep) it was fine (ish). I was not impressed with the fact my daughter's room has wet dirty towels on the floor when we first went to the room and when we asked for new ones... More

Wouldn't recommend this place... very uncomfortable... rooms too champed for movement....staff unprofessional... AC didn't work....staff was lost when is comes to solving problems... food was average...nothing wow about the food.... looks like the Oakray group of hotels have a reputation of messed up places.... wouldn't recommend their properties ever.

I quite enjoyed our 2 night stay at this hotel. It's situated high on a hill overlooking the chaos of Kandy below.

Located high above the village, to visit Kandy you should have a car or use a tuk tuk or taxi. Quiet and clean, nice dining area under the roof, open to the air. Friendly personnel. Good breakfast and dinner buffet.

We didn't choose this hotel ourselves as it was pre-booked for our tour group. We were met by efficient looking staff but the hotel itself was a slight let down.

Room was cleaned. Bathroom simple with a big shower. There is wifi but the signal is not constant. All in line with what expected for a 2 stars hotel. There is a swimming pool. They have breakfast and dinner buffet. They have also a la carte menu.

Again, this hotel was part of a tour, so I did not choose it. It was in the foothills above the city, about a 15 minute walk to the city center, which was fine. The hotel itself I found odd. It seemed relatively new, it had a nice pool, great views, and a fabulous breakfast room. Lots of local weddings.... More
