Hansini at Earl's Regency was very supportive throughout the process of planning my wedding. She ensured that everything was ok for my big day. Would definitely recomend all COVID brides to contact Hansini before planning their special day at Earl's Regency.

Stayed here with my family for 2 nights. 1. No water bottles in the room , had to ask 10 times ( not exaggerating ) for them to send 3 small water bottles finally. 2. Asked for the room to be cleaned at 11:30 am, returned to the room at 9:30 am to find the room in the same condition. The duty manager was rude, incompetent and blamed us for not informing him when we clearly did. The housekeeping did not clean the room completely also. 3. When we checked in , we asked to see a higher category room. They said our current room is a delux category which is pool facing. Then when we asked to see the suite incase we wish to upgrade. Then to sell us the suite they said our current “pool facing “ room is unavailable (all within a span of 10 minutes) then showed us 2-3 more rooms and the whole experience was taxing. 4. Breakfast was crappy, at best. Lacks food quality and did not even have a basic cappuccino available. 5. No food available in the hotel at night. 6. If we ask for something, they say they’re sending it , then never end up doing it. 7. Rooms are also very average. Photos are not portrayed accurately. 8. Their staff is inexperienced, and the “higher - ups” are good for nothing. 9. Met other guests in the lobby who also faced major problems with their service. 10. Despite experessing our concerns, the hotel did not do anything to make us feel comfortable or welcome. If you want a bad experience , you can book it. But trust me, it’ll exceed your worst nightmare. They call themselves a 5 star hotel but they’re worse than a roadside lodge.

My husband and I stayed in Earl's Regency Hotel for 2 nights. I could say we had a good stay but not awesome much. I had set a high expectations from the hotel and staff, since myself is also a Hotelier. There were some aspects that I can see that lacking; 1. Reservation and F.O Department - upon our check in I called the hotel twice to confirm out reservation and that we requested for a decorative room (since we are celebrating our Wedding Anniversary), upper room and a corner room. The wasn't succesful at all since the 2 lady I have spoken with just hang up on my face and did not even bothering to return a call. We have arrived at the hotel at 15:30 on Nov.20,2021 and they asked me to sit down on the lobby, I am seeing that the other guest has been served by a welcome drink which I did not get. The other guest mostly is European and I can say that they are getting more prioritize compared to the Local guests (well my husband was a Sri Lankan) this was frustrating in our part since we have travelled 4 hours to stay in this hotel. After the check in the receptionist named NIMANTHI help us and showed our room, she has been helpful and explained the amenities of the hotel. But when we arrived in the room it wasn't the room I am expecting with. The decoration of the room wasn't that great and the cake that was supposed to be there is not being served. We have to call 3 times to served it. Which very frustrating. 2. HK - When we arrived at the room, there were no slippers, robe and toothbrush. And since we are staying for 2 nights, the HK supposed to refills the amenities but won't happen and we have to called them and waited few hours. The main concern I am seeing here is that there we a DISCRIMINATION under foreign guests and local guests. I believed that everyone should be treated fairly since we are all paying. But on top of the our stayed is good.

Earl's Regency Kandy was nothing short of excellent when it came to planning my big day! Big thanks to Hansi for doing a stellar job and being so cooperative. The food & hospitality was equally great, and the ambience is truly unmatched! Cannot wait to visit again, for a longer stay.

Salute to the TEAM @ Earls Regency Kandy We have been patronizing Earls Regency Kandy for long years as our hideout in the hills and from the day one the service team @ the hotel was truly trying to accommodate us with extreme care making us feeling home at best. 14th November, 2021 we booked a triple room as we were to attend a family wedding to be held in the Earls 15th November morning, with terrible weather conditions we had a tiring drive of almost 6 hours from Colombo to Earls Regency. From the reception we were treated like Royals very nicely – we entered the buffet lunch which was a super spared wiping our tiredness off in no time – the dining area staff matching the hotel’s excellent service team. Room was sanitized very well and the washroom was nicely cleaned & perfumed. We requested few extra services related to the next day wedding and they shouldered them with much friendliness than we ever expected, then from 1am we were running up and down organizing the event the team were always with us in true hospitality attitude almost making us feeling like own family members. During the wedding there were usual hiccups / missing needed items during “Poruwa” but all these areas were taken smoothly over by the TEAM. Our family and extended family members all joins with me to salute the total team to be titled as # 1 Residence Hotel in the country – may the powers above make their future with best of everything - Athula Talagala 0771053562
