The hotel is in the best location in Kandy and as soon as you walk through the doors the place is stunning! The old colonial style is fantastic, the rooms are basic but have everything you need and were very comfortable. The bar and swimming pool were very good for relaxing and the buffet breakfast had fantastic choice.
The rooms facing the temple are noisy, with prayers being called at 6am and then the horns start on the road, but this is only a minor negative.
This hotel is a must, even if you're not staying here you should visit as the decor is amazing.
