As part of a 4 day tour of Sri Lanka the Hotel was where we stayed when visiting Kandy. Kandy the City is much fresher and greener than Colombo and less busy.
After a long drive from Colombo, stopping to ride elephants and see the traditional dance we arrived at the Hotel Topaz in the evening.
The Hotel was clean and fresh, and on arrival we were greeted with a cold drink and fast speedy service.
Unfortunately we only spent one night here, arriving at 2000 and leaving again at 0800. But in that short time we were there I can say the Hotel was lovely.
The rooms are large and fresh, equipped with A/C, TV and Tea/Coffee facilities.
The Food in the evening was a buffet and of good quality and similarly for Breakfast in the morning.
The pool looked amazing but unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to try it out.
The location up in the hills above Kandy gives it the stunning views but if you wanted to stay somewhere close to the city centre then this isn't the place for you.
Overall 7/10. Clean, friendly, great views.

However Hotel Topaz offers guests a tranquil setting and the option of exploring the city’s rich heritage in style and comfort.The warm and personal service serves to truly bring out the widely famed Sri Lankan hospitality.
