“Great value, wonderful open-air dining room”
Reviewed March 7, 2008

We found the Senani Hotel on our way to another hotel that we had phoned.

The hotel was nearly empty due a lack of visitors, scared off by recent events in Sri Lanka, so it was nice and peaceful!

We had a modern, clean room with a balcony and breakfast for two for a total of $40!

Water in the shower takes a few minutes to heat up, but no problems otherwise.

Dinner is excellent, so is service. The dining room looks onto a small ravine, and onto the valley - there's monkeys everywhere! Staff will tell you to keep your balcony door shut to prevent them from going into your room!

  • Liked — The view over the valley at breakfast
  • Disliked — Mattresses are a bit hard
  • Stayed March 2008, traveled as a couple

Reviewed December 9, 2007

The Senani is set on a small, peaceful road, up a hill a mile or so away from the centre of Kandy with nice views over the town. The hotel is only a few years old and the 15 rooms or so bedrooms are well-equipped and spotless with excellent breakfasts and dinners to match. We had a look at a few other hotels, including the Thi Lanka which looked pretty care-worn, before checking in to the Senani. Staff were wonderfully attentive,
