we stayed on the top floor overlooking Kandy, with an uninterrupted view for miles and a beautiful sunset. The room was large and beautifully decorated, the bathroom a little quirky, and needed a little TLC. The food evening and breakfast was plentiful and tasty, once again with a fantastic view. The staff very accommodating and management very helpful and eager...

We were getting to the hotel late in the evening, and we emailed in advance to inform the owner. We did not get a reply. We turned up to find the road leading to the hotel to be closed with no signs. We had to drag our suitcases up a narrow dark unknown road and got to a fork in...

When I arrived, I was upgraded to the Queen's suite. Luxurious room, very large and clean, beautifully decorated. Seating area overlooking my own private garden. Spent a lot of time in that garden looking at the view of Kandy and the hills. Glorious sunsets. Breakfast is buffet style and dinners vary between set and buffet. You can choose to be...

It was my third time to stay at this lovely hotel. I always enjoy Sri Lankan style room and meal. But the main reason why I keep coming back to this hotel is staffs. They always make me feel like staying at home.

Our room had a gorgeous view looking down over the town, and the bed was comfy. The staff are very helpful, and helped us arrange transport when we needed it. Dinner was good. It's not a luxury hotel but its brilliant for the price!

Firstly the hotel isn't easy to find, situated up a very steep hill from the centre of Kandy but once there the views over the city are wonderful. The building itself is fine, perhaps if you look beyond first views it is starting to look a little shabby in places and there are steep steeps up to the reception area...

Stayed here last week for 2 nights and would describe the experience overall as average. Bedrooms are nice with a cool antique style but the bathrooms are pretty grotty and in general you feel like the place needs a bit of renovation. Our bathrooms had a pretty grim shower over the bath and it was difficult to get the shower...

We stayed at this place en route from Columbo to Trincomalee. It was a great choice - very lovely room with sitting garden out in from of our room. The view of Kandy was spectacular! The food served was OK, but not exceptional. There is a challenging road up to it, and it's a bit hard to find at in...

Perched on top of the hill overlooking Kandy , a great place to sit back and enjoy the views , hospitality and food. As it’s a little way out of Kandy and it can take a little while to make your way up the very steep hill but well worth it for the views alone. The overall service ………..help with...
