We were very pleased with this hotel. The room looks great and was clean. The view was not that great (roof from the restaurant and big tree in front of the balcony). There was a lovely band playing during dinner. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kandy. I definitely come back during my next visit.

The hotel has been upgraded since we were there last and everything looks really great. Will recommend the place to anyone. Ideal for a good long holiday or even a short...

We stayed for one night on our tour. It was a very beautiful peaceful retreat from the town (not too far but quite a steep hill to tackle). There was a great view from the bar which you had to frequent to access the wifi (excellent speed when you could get it – also available in the lobby). I think...

This hotel is located on a dead end street on top of a hill . Not easy to locate but once there a little gem in the city. Very comfortable room over looking part of the city. Dinning is in s covered but open area. Good selection on the menu for dinner or the buffet was good.

We were initially disappointed because of the size of the place. However, we had a lovely room overlooking the lake and forest. An occasional monkey passing by our verandah, and the location was really goodas well as it was easy walk to Central Kandy. Food was also good, staff friendly, hot shower, aircon, all the creature comforts.
