We stayed in many fabulous places in Sri Lanka on our recent family holiday and we rank the Manor House as one of the very best because of its unique character and service. The Manor itself is beautifully maintained in its original olde worlde style and set in a lovely garden where the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast is served each...

This hotel is a romantic place to stay in Kandy. Me and my boyfriend loved our room, we stayed in the one of the tower rooms. Our room was comfortable and relatively clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

My partner and I stayed at the Manor House for 2 nights during our Kandy exploration period in Sri Lanka, midway through our trip. The only bad thing about our stay was the fact we couldn't extend it due to our scheduling constraints! The mansion is beautiful, the service excellent - special mention to Noel for always taking good care...

Situated in a dark back-alley of Kandy this so called Manor house is an absolutely terrible place to visit let alone stay at. Starting off with the condition of the hotel itself, the place has completely fallen apart. By my best guess no renovation work has been done for the last two decades or so. As an additional bonus the...

This mansion is absolutely wonderful. Our first stop in Sri Lanka, and it will be hard to beat it! The home cooked meals and the fresh fruits from the garden were a treat. The establishment has really kept the old mansion as it was and it feels like walking through a time machine. Worth a visit!

Walking in, we expected a stately but otherwise gloomy traditional home, and were pleasantly surprised by the charming and well-appointed floors and interiors. The manager and staff were very helpful, accomodating even our less than typical requests, and the owners (whom we had the privilege of meeting) gave us a private tour of the house and grounds - of which...
