When requested to change the room, they sprayed it with air freshner but smell didn't subside. They could not do anything for us despite requests. Also there was no soap / shampoo holder in the bathroom....

Located on the hill side, but accessible easily from the city if you choose a vehicle powerful enough. Our tuktuk didn't make the last climb. Colonial style building was stylishly restored and especially our room was beautiful and functional with superb views from the balcony. Best of all was the personnel, genuinely friendly people with positive attitude. As well the...

We had 2 nights in Kandy before you headed over to Ella over the Christmas break and it was the absolutely perfect for our needs; clean, large comfortable rooms, great views, nice pool, great food and reasonably priced drinks.
