We found the hotel very clean, we stayed in the new section with modern furniture and new bathroom.The food was good, a selection from the buffet quite a range.There was a party on the terrace above our rooms which was fine till they came to clean and tidy afterwards, i had to go up and complain about dragging the tables and chairs across the floor, this stopped at once with prefuse apologies,and more apologies next morning.On the whole i think this hotel is good value and would recommend.

We stayed at the Thilanka for one night while passing through Kandy. Pretty much everything about this hotel is average, although the staff are actually quite good. The building as a whole needs a lick of paint and a bit of tlc. The rooms are large, but with only basic furniture in them they look a bit empty. The bed wasn't very comfy and the room smelt of damp, but the bathroom was nice and it has aircon.

The restauraunt and food are better, with a decent selection of food and wine.

The views are ok, Kandy itself is a bit of a disappointment to be honest, but the hotel is within walking distance of the Temple of the Tooth and the town centre.

Overall, I wouldn't have stayed there for more than one night.

I have already wasted too much of my life on this place, but I will say the the rooms ground floor rooms near the pool are a mix of damp bomb shelter and garage conversion. We had the missfortune to stay 3 nights because during the festival everywhere else was booked. Hmmm. We all felt ill, I spent one night throwing up and I think it was down to the dampness in the rooms rather than the food. A good word must be said for the service though as the staff were very helpful but must find it a struggle to work in such a depressing building.
Stay somewhere else.

We stayed at the Thilanka for 3 nights. We had a deluxe room with a little garden. The monkeys did come in the morning, but it s better to leave your balcony door closed when they re there ( usually from 8.30 am to 10 am). But you can still get close to them! The pool is very nice, we tried a massage at the cosy little ayureveda center, and we were very pleased with it. You can get a fresh omelette for breakfast, and the room service menu has very acceptable prices. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. We didn t see the other rooms, but ours was really luxurious, with a giant bar-counter, a big bead with soft blankets, a tv, a lounge chair.... Down side: none.

The Thilanka is beautifully set in the forest just a short walking distance from Kandy town. The hotel management (after prodding) goes out of their way to make the stay of customers enjoyable. In particular Mr Marcus should be noted. Go for the new building, floors 6-9. Ample space and regular visits by monkeys. keep the doors closed!
