This was our third hotel in our tour of Sri Lanka arranged by Red Dot tours, we stayed here to watch the perahera (temple of the tooth parade). The hotel's architecture is is open and airy, with fantastic views over the surrounding hills from the upstairs living room. It was nice to drink tea in the cosy room, read and take in these spectacular views. The food was wonderful, we enjoyed a delicous, vegetarian 3 course meal in the evening, the cardamom coconut rice was heavenly. Dudley, the owner, was helpful and knowledgeable about all sorts of things, and he will be glad to hear we made it to Odell's in Colombo! It is perhaps a little far out of Kandy if you are travellling without a car, however, the upside is the peace and quiet. We also loved sitting outside on our little patio to the garden, and seeing monkeys eating jackfruit in the tree - wow!
