We liked the location of the hotel, cleanliness, great facilities, and excellent service. Our room itself was very pretty and comfortable. I think it's a good option in Kandy, but there were a couple drawbacks. Food was really bad (I could barely make it through breakfast and I left more than half of room service untouched), and it took about...

Situated in a picturesque spot with a breath taking view of the surrounding hills this hotel has a beautiful garden with a sprawling green lawn. The swimming pool is unique in design surrounded by palm trees. Three of us stayed in a junior suite which provided the luxurious comfort which was beyond our expectations.The spacious suite had a big bathroom...

This is clearly a top hotel in Kandy with fantastic service, staff, rooms and views. You can't say too much about this hotel as it is perfect in every way, with great rooms, fantastic staff, wonderful food, great views and a very good pool area. Stayed for 2 nights, but wish it had been longer. You won't be disappointed if...

We stayed two nights in a spacious room with a wonderful view. The staff were helpful and polite. Choice of food was good, well presented and of good quality. This is one of the best hotels in Kandy according to our driver/guide and we found it hard to dispute this.

Stayed for one night the day of my arrival to Sri Lanka. They offered me an early check-in and was given a big and comfortable room overlooking the gardens. The restaurants are great as well as the service. Beautiful pool and grounds. Just a short 10 minutes drive to Kandy lake and downtown.

We stayed for 1 night and we're so pleased with the Regency. Our room was large, included a king size bed, spacious bathroom and a balcony. It was also very quiet and comfortable. There was a refrigerator in our room as well as a safe to secure your valuables. We ate in the Far Pavilion restaurant, which was a buffet...

Great hotel for a short stay as well as a long one. Our room was great but lacked freshness. At dinner a guest relations officer checked in on us and not meaning to complain we let her know that our room lacked freshness and she had the entire room deodorised and cleaned out again before we got back well done...

First to say - this is an excellent choice of hotel see previous reviews which I concur. My only gripes are: Watch out for VAT & tax & service charge to the drinks. On the menu they appear pricey but when the bill comes you need to sit down. e.g. 1 double gin and tonic and 1 beer came to...

We stayed for only one night but would have loved to stay longer. The hotel is on a hillside affording beautiful views across Kandy. There were many facilities in the hotel but we didn't have the time to use them. We were upgraded to a junior suite and that was lovely. We had a wonderful corner balcony which was spacious...
