We stayed here for 3days at the end of March. Unfortunately we were put in a room at the front of the hotel which was very noisy - it starts at around 4am with the birds and carries on from chanting at the Mosque next door and then the traffic. The room and bathroom was very dated. However we had a superb buffet evening there and breakfast was good also.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back

We stayed here for 1 night. Our driver managed to get us booked in here at very short notice after we could not find the B&B we had booked into. The reception staff were not particularly friendly.
The room was quite large, but not completely clean. I managed to have a shower when we arrived, but when my husband got in the water stopped working altogether. When we told reception the dismissed it with 'it is being fixed' without even asking for our room number. The sink was also falling off the wall.
We had not eaten all day so when we went down for dinner anything was welcome, but on reflection the food was not great. There were bones in the chicken and the fish was rather tough. The breakfast was OK, but my husbands plate was whipped out from under him before he had finished-there was literally half a plate of food left-he was pausing for a drink.
The saving grace of this hotel is it's location for the temple of the tooth-just across the road.
We did not think that this was worth $90 per night.

This hotel is situated next to the lake in Kandy opposite Temple of the Tooth. The hotel its self was beautiful. Unfortunately the rooms were tired, the bathrooms especially. The pool was lovely as was the garden, however in trying to keep it tidy the pool guy kept sweeping the petals all day, even in between our chairs and table when we were sat. In the evening amongst the buffet (which i wouldn't usually go for) was the most amazing Sri Lankan curry! The service here was also great!
The room we were in was on the main road. The windows/doors didn't close properly and there were big gaps around the outside. This lead to a very noisy nights sleep, with the all night hooting of car/bus horns!

Room Tip: Try for one of the few rooms away from the road!!! (if there are any) Or take ear plugs!!!

PROS - Beautiful, old colonial building, attentive & helpful staff, location is directly beside the Temple of the Tooth and across from the lake. Pool was a fantastic bonus at the end of a hot day - opens to a small lounge/bar. Awesome buffet breakfast!

CONS - Needs updating, a bit dingy for $90 +/night, bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper with traffic. Beers/food at the lounge are very overpriced. One night, the room above us must have had a bath and let it overflow - it leaked down into our room. The staff were quick to attend, but not a great find!

All in all, fine. Also, there is a concierge/travel agent at the very front (beside the restaurant) - tours to sigiryia, etc. If you turn down the small hall beside the reception desk, towards the "ballroom" there is another small travel agent/desk here - they were substantially cheaper for the same service!! We used them and had a fabulous experience (and saved $$).

Room Tip: The rooms with a "balcony" are standing room only and lead to the very busy/loud street. We opted to move to an older area abutting an alley - it was much quieter!

The Lonely Planet is a bit sniffy about this hotel but we found that the room was fair value at about $90, the staff were great, the location is perfect (at the corner of the lake), the bar is great and hell, it even has a proper decent swimming pool which we sampled. Granted, yes, the fan made more noise than a 747 taking off but all in all this was a great experience.
