Stayed for one night only. Modern rooms with views over Kandy. Nicely decorated rooms. Hot water was a bit hit and miss but other than good room. Had dinner in the restaurant which was good and also good breakfast. Breakfast food more Sri Lankan then dinner. Plenty of monkeys about!

Stayed for 3 nights whilst in Kandy. Breakfast was always nice, a good choice of food with freshly cooked omlettes and waffles/pancakes. The bar had amazing views over Kandy as did the balcony in our room. Also, beware of the monkeys!! They are sneaky! Nabbed my water bottle whilst I was having a cigarette on the balcony. All staff were... More

Very nice hotel with a great view of Kandy Lake. The staff are warm and welcoming and the breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The rooms are clean n well decorated with huge bathrooms. I would recommend this hotel highly. I wish I could have stayed longer. The downside is the poor Wifi access.

Thilanka is situated in the town so its strategic. I have no complaints about the hotel but nothing outstanding as well. It's a decent hotel to stay. Food was decent with variety. Hotel staff were helpful.

Thilanka, Kandy was a revelation. Superb views of the town and within walking distance to the shops and markets. The rooms were good too, although a leaky A/C duct had left a puddle before we entered... which was attended to, immediately. My husband who was down with a cold was comforted with some medicine by Thomas, a concerned staffer. The... More

This is a good property. It doesnt have any great scenic views from its rooms though. The rooms too were quite average. We stayed for two nights..The food was good and they have courteous staff. We faced a problem while communicating with the staff at times as they weren't very conversant with English. That apart it was a good stay... More

The staff were polite and friendly. The hotel was clean and the rooms were spacious. The buffet dinner and breakfast were delicious. There was an amazing variety of food. The live band in the evening definitely added to the good vibe.

This is a very nice hotel situated in the resort area of srilanka. Pleasant environment with breathtaking scenery. Good clean swimming pool. Downside is that no wifi in rooms but very big elegant rooms. I loved the food and beef was on the menu
