We stayed here twice in our recent trip to Sri Lanka - the staff were friendly and helpful in organising pick ups from trains, drivers and drop offs to trains. The meals were very nice as was the view from our room.

The room (deluxe) had 2 window fronts with great views, was very clean and had all necessary equipment plus an extra bottle of water for free.
The staff (owner and employees) were very friendly and helpful without being pushy. The owner helped us organising a tour to the cultural triangle with driver, two hotels and park-entries as well with the transport to Nuwara Eliya. Both was for reasonable prices.
The driver was friendly and reliable.
The food in the restaurant was excellent. The Kandy View dhal was our favourite on this trip.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms on the floor above the restaurant offer nice views.

We are a family of four persons ( 2 adults + 2 kids ) and were staying in this hotel in high view delux room ! The room was good and big ! The morning breakfast was execellent ! The chairman of this hotel named Ms Kanchana Ranasingha was very much co-opearative ! On our arrival,they have offered us a mouth watering mixed fruit fresh juice ! Our check in was made possible only in ten minutes ! The staff was very helpful and will prepared food (lunch or dinner) as per your choice,if you informed them in advance or in the morning after having your breakfast ! Definately recommend other persons who are visiting kandy,in future !

Room Tip: High view rooms are having more beauty of nature and surrounded by hills !

We cut our stay short just to get away
Really poor rooms. We had a view of to old beat up cars.. Some construction site and that's about it

The bathroom door was more just a screen which made for no privacy between you and your room mate.. Lovely

Comparing the room, prices and facilities this is an excellent value in Kandy. The roof top restaurant has an impressive view of Kandy. Buffet breakfast (included in room price) is one of the best I have in this holiday. Cooking is great, so we always had dinner at the hotel.

Owner is excellent, reception lady was useless, if you are not there when the owner is presence, hotel reception is not going to take any action just simply ask you to wait until the owner is back.

We booked a tour for 3 days to ancient cities (300 USD). The driver drove like hell, it was an aircon van but the aircon has never been used, driver always leave his window open, so very bad smell from outside car all the ways. We cannot ask him to stop at the place we want to eat, he always drove us to eat at the restaurant he can eat for free. I've got my neck ache for few days after the trip.

Stay in room 101. The floor to ceiling windows allow for a wonderful view. We stayed in December and really enjoyed the visit there. Our only complain was that the towels were non absorbent. Bring your own towel!

Room Tip: Opt for a room higher up, the views are lovely
