“Gracious service with hospitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Royal Mall Hotel (RMH) is located just 2 km and 10 minutes away from Kandy town and Peradeniya on a road close to and parallel to the new Peradeniya Road.- A short distance only from the world famous Royal Botanical Gardens.

Royal Mall offers a comprehensive range of services like luxury rooms, restaurants, pub, coffee shop with snacks, spa, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, fitness centre, supermarket, shops, bank and several other facilities.

My room (no. 416) was small, but clean and equipped with all desirable amenities as f.i. A/C, a toilet with shower, hot and cold water, mini bar, TV and a useful room service with daily cleaning.

The Royal Mall has two restaurants called the Royal Mall Restaurant (RMR) and Heraliya Food Court (HFC).
The first one (RMR) offers fine cuisine in A/C comfort. A buffet for lunch as well as A La Carte menu is available and you can choose from a variety of Sri-Lankan, Chinese and Western dishes together with a selection of wine and beer. While you are waiting for your food, you can watch it being prepared in the kitchen.
The other restaurant (HFC) is just outside, behind the hotel next to a parking place in the shade of trees and offers many different and tasty Sri-Lankan and Chinese dishes in a cozy and pleasant atmosphere. Most of the guests do not stay in the hotel but are coming from outside to enjoy local favorites such as hoppers and kottu.
Heraliya also has a takeaway food outlet where food is available at a reasonable rate.

The amount of charges for my stay in four nights were reasonable compared to the high price level in Colombo. Thus many locals can afford to enjoy the facilities of the RMH.

It was a good choice and a pleasure to select the RMH for my stay in Kandy. The staff offered a warm and gracious service together with hospitality.

Absolutely a visit worth again.

“A Good Restaurent.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

A nice place to have lunch as the Buffet is very good, you get value for your money & the food is tasty even for foreigners, whenever in Kandy this is the place we choose for our meals from inception, even the Pastry's & Bread in the bakery down stairs has lovely food including Sri-Lankan sweets. Whenever possible we buy the Bread to bring all the way to Colombo.This time we took our foreign friends to lunch & they too enjoyed the food very much. The ambience is pleasant & the service very good & courteous.
