Significant local landmark, but the Hotel is well past its prime. General decor and services are in need of significant upgrade, whilst the general enthusiasm of the staff is somewhat jaded. Front of house reception team lack both provisionalism and basic courtesy. Greatest selling point remains the old colonial style of the building and it's ideal location for the Temple...

Old colonial hotel with nice rooms. Make sure you ask for a room far from the noisy street. The pool is fantastic and offers you the possibility to cool off after a strawl in the busy town. Food is average and a little disappointing specially for the breakfast. The hotel offers a tourist informationdesk In the lobby: Royce Tours &...

This is an experience of a hotel, it’s imposing nature next to the Temple of the Tooth and the lake, its quirky bar and vast breakfast room make this hotel a must to stay at. We stayed in two different rooms whilst at the hotel, our driver insisted we have a lake facing room so we so changed after the...

Nice hotel in the heart of Kandy, next to the temple of the sacred tooth. Breakfast simple but fine. The rooms are fine but noisy. Make sure you take a room far from the road because traffic is heavy. In the lobby you'll find Royce tours & travels, but he charges you European prices! € 60,00 for a taxi to...

We are a family of four adults and we started our holiday on Christmas Day in Sri Lanka with a 2-night stay in Kandy. We were very happy with the recommendation to stay at one of the bigger suites. We usually just stay at hotels to sleep and spend our time outside the hotel for the most part of the...

While the hotel looks impressive, the room that I got was terrible. Here are some highlights : 1. The bed/cot was squeaky and I couldn't sleep properly fearing that it might break anytime 2. Room was very congested 3. Phone and TV were not working. After multiple follow ups got it fixed 4. Room had a door to the adjacent...

This hotel has a long way to go and I likened it to a low-class hostel. I accept that it’s a three-star property, but I’ve stayed in better guest houses in Sri Lanka. I only chose this hotel as I stayed here ten years ago, and have seen how it’s gone down the tubes. I booked a three-night stay before...

This hotel has a potential (location, heritage, architecture) to be one of real gems in Kandy (if not in Sri Lanka), yet the lack of modernization (split ACs!, missing hot water, noise attenuation etc.) leaves it wanting in delivering high class experience. Rooms are of course large and spacious, but bathrooms while large have old bulbs and tube lights, and...

My partner and I stayed at the Queen's hotel for one night in December. The hotel is beautiful and has a lot of potential, however everything is quite old and some areas need a little attention and maintenance. The room and bathroom needs painting and the kettle in the room was very old and rusty. The room had a balcony...

We were 3 people visiting Kandy for two days/ 1 night. The hotel is well located in downtown, with good walking distance to markets and restaurants. The building is old, British style architecture mansion converted into a hotel. While I really appreciate and enjoyed the effort to maintain the old style, some people may be creeped out by the long,...
