Our experience was pretty short actually. But we came to the Royal Tourist Lodge in the very late hours, maybe around 2-3am (I can't really remember, I just know it was after midnight and we were all tired and exhausted from the day's activities and searching for a place to stay), after trying to find a decent, affordable and clean place to stay in for the night. For about 3 hours, we had been searching for all the 3 and 4 star hotels, all around Kandy and ALL or most of the ones we considered legit was FULL. We finally came to one inn or a similar lodge somewhere in town, in the hills and that was a friend of Royal Tourist Lodge's and he recommended us to go there (Royal Tourist Lodge). To our surprise everything we wanted was there: cleanliness, quaint, helpful, and kind. So we stayed over for the night and left in the morning....but only after we ate their SCRUMPTIOUS BREAKFAST :) ...The only thing I think could be improved was the HOT WATER in the shower could be a little more stronger and hotter. Other than that, it was good hospitality, great hosts, clean and comfortable sleeping...OVERALL A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE AND THANK YOU GUYS FOR EVERYTHING!!!
