Lovely hotel situated in the most beautiful scenery in the hills. Lovely staff and friendly atmosphere. Beds are so comfortable one day we slept till 11:45am, so make sure you set up an alarm if you really have to get up early, otherwise you will sleep so long, as the place is very relaxing. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting...

The manager and the cook are very nice. They offered us free fresh juices. The hotel offers a very nice view on the mountains around Kandy. We had a great time at the swimming pool. They are still building the garden. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. I would definitely recommend the place. They also provide free pick up from...

If you want to get out of the busy city life and relax this is the place. Simple but very clean and with an amazing view. Only the sound of nature in the surrounding. But be aware that is a bit far away from the city center (5 km distance), up in the hills. Not easy to find even by...

Our stay at "the change" was certainly a highlight of our Sri Lanka round trip. The hotel has an amazing view and its architecture allows for a very natural, bright and open atmosphere. We also liked the simplistic, pure yet very elaborate interior design. The fact that it is located 10min (TukTuk 500Rupees) from Kandy is a big plus. It...

The staff at the hotel were very friendly. The food was very tasty (Chicken curry was one of the best we had throughout our entire Sri Lanka trip) and the views from the hotel were fantastic. The room was basic, the bed was really hard (Great for the hubby, but not for me), and the bathroom so-so. When we went...

This hotel is quite out of the way, but our driver knew where to go so we had no problems finding it. Once you are there, you are in for the night, so if you are the type that's likes to wander in the evening, be aware. It was fine for us though, because we went out in the morning...
