We stayed in the Manor House in Kandy for a couple of nights as a family of four. It is a lovely old building, set in attractive gardens with a small swimming pool - an oasis just a short distance from Kandy. It's been beautifully renovated recently to its original style, and exudes calm and serenity, with a fabulous feeling of space. We loved the early morning ambience in particular. There were several other families staying but it never felt crowded.The staff are very friendly and helpful, but service has a 'Fawlty Towers' feel to it with amusing incidents. Food is not the hotel's strong point, nor is service.The hotel's director was really helpful in advance, but her efficient personal approach didn't really carry through to the whole operation. The hotel is beautiful and we would recommend it, but suggest some staff training.
