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....

This hotel was recommended by our tour operator Holiday Designers. The hotel was a good standard throughout, with friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. It was conveniently located, whilst still being set in a quiet area.

We visited this hotel for 2 nights as part of our tour of Sri Lanka on 4th & 5th March 2017. We were promised a deluxe room and we were not disappointed as we were given The Mountbatten Suite which is the best room in the hotel. The suite was absolutely beautiful as was every aspect of the hotel. The...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour. Previous hotels were more country or provincial but this is a city hotel, just outside of Kandy - this is a good thing because Kandy city centre is hot, hectic and noisy! It is a beautiful hotel . It is built around the rocks of the valley side and these...

A very peaceful and spacious hotel, perfectly located for who's looking to relax and enjoy an amazing view after an exhausting day. Rooms are nice too, well maintained and cleaned. Staff is what you would expect it to be in such high-standard place (kind, helpful, always with a smile and a nice word...). Buffet breakfasts & dinners are quite tasty...

We were transferred here from another Kandy hotel which had been overbooked, and we are so glad that we were! The peaceful scene from our room first thing in the morning, with mist rising from the valley, the excellent dining facilities, the attentive staff, the spacious and well appointed rooms, all contributed to a haven from the mad traffic and...

Room was on 4th floor of the rear building. Someone claimed it took ten minutes to get to the dining room. Well, it might if you were riding a tortoise. Took me about three! Large room with balcony. Minibar a bit sparse, but then I never use them. I prefer a hotel bar. Food was excellent I thought. Someone on...

We have had a staff get together at Ministry of Music Karaoke Bar. Superb location and the staff were excellent. Hotel itself is simply grand. A little too far away from the Kandy city. However a great place to relax after a hectic day.
