Arrived late afternoon and had a lovely room on the ground floor overlooking the garden. Large pool with fantastic views over the lake and the hills with a really lovely cocktail bar. Breakfast selection was good and the quality of the room and hotel generally was excellent. Watch out for the monkeys!! 🐒

We arrived in kandy after a few days in a peaceful spot and so were pleasantly surprised when this hotel offered stylish comfortable accommodation in a bustling city/ It was a little oasis which suprised us. We particularly enjoyed the pool and bar areas with views of the city. The staff were kind and courteous. The music was a bit...

This place has an amazing view (be sure to ask for one). It's also very inexpensive. It has amazing buffets and great service. The glass bar is great at night to enjoy the view. The rooms were dated and the bed was hard, but it was ok for the price.

You could also hear all the other air conditioning units on the floor as they were internal. We have never before complained but did so in the morning and were quickly offered a...

Spent 16 days touring Sril Lanka and this was the best place. We were disappointed only to be staying one night. Rooms spacious and clean. Functioning bathroom - often a problem in the country. Lovely pool. Only place we stayed with 'hot' buffet food. Helpful, friendly staff and delightful view across the lake. Close to Tooth Temple and cultural dance...

We stayed here for 2 nights while on an intense 5 day sightseeing tour of the island. We loved it. We stayed in the Suite Room. Which overlooks the pool and lake around which Kandy is built. So we had a glorious view of the lake and mountains when we awoke (usually because of the monkeys in the trees outside!)....

Thilanka is probably the best budget hotel in Sri Lanka we stayed during this trip. Reasonably prized and better than others in the same price range. Rooms clean and sufficient space, with clean and functioning bath room. Staff friendly. Their buffet style dinner reasonably good. Good place to visit Buddha's tooth.
