My wife and I went to Sri Lanka on honeymoon and took a small tour of the island, this took us away from our main hotel for an evening. The hotel which we stopped at was booked by the tour company, Hotel Topaz.
Hotel Topaz is set up high in the hills with excellent views over Kandy but this is one of the only highlights of the hotel along with pleasant staff.
It appeared the the hotel was under going a refit whilst we stayed there so out room was a mismatch of old and new and not to my personal taste.
Dinner in the restaurant was in a buffet style again not to my taste and the food was a mixture from different continents, which didn't appear to go together. Also while we were eating there were lizards running across the ceiling I guess due to a window being open and it being cooler in the hotel.
I feel my views on this hotel were skewed due to the rest of my stay being at the fantastic Fortress on Koggala Beach.
