“Very Bad hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

I spent 2 nights in this hotel and I would not recommend it : the room and the bathroom were dirty, it smells not good in the room, toilet were broken.
For 40$ à night it is very excessive price for à Sri Lankan hotel. I booked first for 3 nights and after I wanted to cancel 1 night but the receptionist told me always "ok no problem I Will Check but at the end nothing happened"

Appears like a Competitor has tried to defame our Holiday Home at Hantana. A good reason for this is that the rate indicated in this review is a ball-park figure which we do not use for our rooms or cottages.

Me and wife are stayed there for one day. Very pleasant place with nice service and helpful staff. View is amazing! One one point of discomfort - bathroom isn't really good. But it's not a bad by the way. Ok, 4 stars rating from me.

I spent three days in this calm holiday recluse with a panoramic view and we are entirely thrilled with our stay.Dean was really helpful and jovial and made our stay a welcome one.Right now no food is served and food is being brought from Hantana hotel down the hill.
It is easy access to Peradeniya Botanical gardens, Temple of the Tooth Relic and Tea Museum.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool and a fitness area,Right now u have to order food and they supply it from...

Very clean budget hotel definitely recommend. Family run and staff could not do enough for you. Great freshly cooked food served up by Dean in our own dining area and professional entertainment from the family. Chrys with his lovely dulcet voice sometimes accompanied by his father on the organ was a relaxing treat. Great views over Kandy. Need tuk tuk to town, 250rs, as very hilly to hotel, but not a problem.
