We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and were happy with our choice. We were on the 5th floor overlooking the lake and enjoyed the sights and sounds of Kandy. We walked to downtown and it took less than 15 minutes, albeit mostly downhill. The room was quite large with tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge. Wifi wasn't that...

This place has certainly undergone a major facelift and everything looks new and well done . Rooms are spacious and capture a beautiful view of the city Out Door restaurant and the bar by the pool is a must visit . Just 5 minutes walk from the Temple of the Tooth . Good food and reasonable prices .

Very nice hotel with friendly staff. Room was clean and comfortable with balcony and nice mountain views. Buffett dinner and breakfast was good. Wifi only available in reception and pool area, which was a little annoying. Not to far a walk to lake about 10-15 minutes Would recommend this hotel

We had Kandy as a bit of a 'via stop' so we thought we'd stay at somewhere nice by looking at photos and reviews online which is why we picked thilanka. We ended up staying much longer than anticipated. When we got there, we were blown away with how nice everything was and how friendly and accomodating the staff were....
