Luggage store at Kandy station?

Hello, does anyone know if Kandy station still has somewhere to leave left luggage for a few hours. We arrive at 9.30am and can't check in at our hotel up in the hill country until 3ish so thought we would go for a wander around Kandy first.

Thanks!

There was a post on here from 2012 that said there used to be one.

Do you know for sure that there isn't one now?

Thanks

No answers, hence presume it's still not there. Drop your luggage at your accomodation luggage room before going into town...

Thanks. We're not planning on staying the night though. Our itinerary is pretty hectic and I was hoping we could just visit for the day en route and drop our luggage somewhere - whether that is the train or bus station or a museum or anwhere. We will only have reasonably sized rucksacs, but they could get heavy after a while

I'm just planning a trip with my girlfriend to Sri Lanka, trying to see as much of inland as possible in 4 days, the rest is in Hikkaduwa. So I'm researching luggage storing for a few hours break in Kandy.

There is actually a post on trip advisor from you (Erik) from 2012:

Hi there,

In our memories YES. When you enter the station to the right side of the ticket counters, but things may have changed. Staffed counter.

All the best,
