It was a long journey after visiting Sirigiya Rock Fortress, Dambulla Cave Temple, Spice Garden & a Cultural Show. We were welcomed by smiling faces ... the warm hospitality of Sri Lankans. Room No : 103. We had one floor to be taken by steps and then we had the elevator to take us to our room. Room was clean though it had an aged look. Basic furniture provided with a comfy bed n clean sheets. Towels were clean too. TV was a 'dinasaur'...the old fashioned tv. Shower was excellent.. (hot & cold). Breakfast was a combination of both western n local...quite a variety. There was a little bar at the corner of the first floor with some live band serenading melodic tunes. We ordered margarita to be sent to our room and we had some wine too to celebrate our successful trip to Sri Lanka! Room service was fast. We were attended to quickly. Check-in & check-out was smooth...with no delays/waiting. While you are in Kandy, do go to Helga's Follly...a unique & mystical ambience...a place to bring back the memories of the yesteryears of the Frank Sinatra era or the series called The Frankestein Family. You need to make a reservation before hand if you intend to have your meal at Helga's. A unique place with unique decor. Our trip was planned by Miraculous Travel House. Do contact Sharon. Our guide/driver was Mr. Gayan (+94722590904)
