this hotel is set on the hills overlooking kandy lake (although your room won't neccesarily).
we had dinner and breakfast here. dinner was a traditional meal which was good, although there wasn't a wide selection of local dishes, most selections being 'western'. i thought, for a smaller hotel, the breakfast was v good, managing to include most of the usual selections in a more modest dining space.
the location is a short drive from the lake and the temple of the tooth, 5 mins.
my parents had a negative experience in that twice when drinks were requested on room service they failed to arrive.
other than that this is a good value hotel with clean, modern rooms.
