Stayed here for just one night in the middle of a 2 week Sri Lanka tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. A warm and efficient welcome and check in, a very comfortable room with decent sized balcony, a lovely pool and good restaurants. We ate in the A La Carte Indian restaurant (interestingly not Sri Lankan) as we don't need a...

We spent a day here at Earl's Regency to attend a evening family wedding which took place at the same place. We stayed in a Luxury room which was very lovely and spacious, the balcony with a hot steam bath and a private jacuzzi facing beautiful view of the mountains. A large swimming pool, good service and great breakfast buffet....

The Earls Regency has the enviable advantage of being perched on the hillside just outside Kandy and has a calm and serene atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the town. We stayed there for one night en route to Nurawa Eliya and would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Kandy. My only criticism would be the standard...

We spent a night here at Earl's Regency as a stop over between the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and Nuwara Eliya. The property is great with a charming English vibe. It was raining for most part of our stay so weren't able to explore the pool, etc. However, the rooms were spacious, with a cute balcony offering exquisite views of the...

Great rooms equipped with good size balconies, good service, great Ambience, a large swimming pool , good breakfast. Only a little far from Kandy city centre( about 4 km ), but definitely a place worth staying.

A large hotel on the outskirts of Kandy with good sized rooms overlooking the gardens or jungle. Unfortunately we had two issues with staff, the first was a waiter who was rude to my wife when we ordered on the a la carte menu rather than the buffet and the second was a member of the housekeeping staff who barged...

We stayed here for two nights and the facilities and service are excellent. Check in was swift and one of the reception staff showed us to our room. The rooms are a large size, comfortable firm beds and have all the things you need. The swimming pool is a good size and captures the sun for most of the day....

The earls Regency is situated at the top of a hill and its immaculate landscaped gardens are matched by an attentive well trained staff and luxury feel to the whole place. Our room was situated a good five minutes from the main building linked by covered walkway but did not disappoint and only helped us to appreciate the lovely setting....
