Our one night in Kandy, after a day on the road and a visit to the Temple of the Tooth. The evening buffet had a few vegetarian options, and the breakfast omelet was superb. Entertainment provided by neighbourhood troop of monkeys in a nearby outdoor stairwell. The rooms were bright and airy, comfortable, and clean. I would stay here again.

The hotel is in a great location, close to Kandy lake and the town. If you plan to walk down the hill get a tuk tuk back up. The staff were helpful and the wifi was working well, but the food was not great.

Hotel with an average standard. On the plus side: clean, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, helpful. There is a strange communication system of corridors (goes down, then goes to the Air conditioning and ceiling fans.

Rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Staff is friendly and accommodating, and wifi is available. The views vary, but one of our rooms had a very nice view and the other was almost as good. Kandy is a beautiful area and this hotel is not far from the attractions (by car). If you don't have a driver, however, you might...

This hotel is up the hill so for the first time difficult to get.the hotel rooms are average. Vegetarian food is a big problem. But in kandy v got Pizza Hut. And the best was Balaji hotel serving pure vegetarian food. The biggest problem here was very poor quality vegetarian food. For all the meals

The hotel is very noisy and has no atmosphere. We did not like the restaurant even though personal was very nice (mainly buffet). It is very far from city center, you need transport. The rooms were okay but very impersonal. The bath room smelled and had old shower.
