We arrived here and were shown a room with 4 beds in it which I would not ask anyone to stay in. This was where they expected our guide/driver to stay. We looked at our room anyway. It was okay nothing great but it met our needs. We needed to find somewhere for our guide to stay as the we...

We actually loved this place. It was in a quiet, peaceful area, blissfully remote from the traffic chaos of Kandy. Our room was simple but spacious and had a large balcony overlooking a river. The pool looked welcoming but it was a bit too cold to use at the time we were there. The staff went out of their way...

Rooms were nothing to write home about but clean. Strange details, broken locks and doors. Food was very good, staff speaks limited english, but is very helpful. Place is ok for an overnight stay, nevertheless one could find better value for money.

This place was selected by my tour operator, based on request of a garden and nice outdoor space. This certainly had that. The lowest level / dining area / pool overlooks the river and is scenic and peaceful. Rooms cascade down the hill from the road, via a winding series of stairs. Might be challenging for someone with knee problems....

A family hotel located 15 min from Kandy city center. We were is the most recent part of the property, the room was big and clean but some details were strange, such as the terrace door not closing completely (allowing mosquitos to get in the room...). Small bathroom with poor water pressure. The staff is friendly but only speak a...

Double room ok, no hot water or tv as advertised. Located in the middle of nowhere on muddy river with heaps of mozzies. Nowhere to walk to, no shops, u are stuck here. Pool nice. Kept losing power. Food terrible and expensive. Staff too busy having fun with each other and ignore guests which is prob why its almost empty

We spent 2 days and it was great. Good company and delicious food. We meet kind people. They were always nice and there to help us. I don't eat onions and it's really frustrating here beacuse Singalese dishes are made of them ;) but they were so kind and for the first time (since I arrived on this island) I...

The accommodation is clean, quiet and very nice located next to the river. The stuff is extremly friendly and helpful (answering questions, giving advices, organising taxis, ...) and the food is absolutely fresh and delicious! I was travelling alone and I felt very comfortable and safe there. It's also suitable for families, because the accommodation is spacious and child-friendly. I...

This hotel is situated in a remote (but quiet) place of Kandy, just in front of the river, so it's not in walking distance from the center... Then, the owner was a kind of rude with us, just because we did not want to order dinner immediately after arriving... Even if the room was big, it was a bit a...

After a 2 night rather enjoyable stay (except for the cloudy, rather shallow pool and mosquitoes being close to the river), I checked out this morning to find a couple rude surprises. 1) the hotel tried to charge a 10% service fee for everything including my nightly room rate, when my room hadn't even been cleaned in between days. When...
