I had read mixed reviews about the hotel so wasn't sure what to expect, so it was a pleasant surprise. The property is high up on the hills and very picturesque. Since we were here as part of a group it was okay, but I would personally not book this hotel as an independent traveller as it's location is not convenient to walk around and explore the beautiful town of Kandy.
We were here after a long journey so I was glad that I slept so well. The breakfast was good.
