I think the hotel is well designed as it doesent feel as large as it is, The location is fantastic, overlooking the city and away from the hussle and bustle. We had a good room overlooking the city with a small balcony. The service was excellent at every point. The food was buffet style, with the resultant advantages and disadvantages,...

The view is great but save yourself some trouble and find a different hotel. We stayed for one night and had an beyond awful experience with this hotel and the management. The hotel took a group booking of about 50 people and put on an event that evening that went on until 11.30pm and if it wasn't because I complained...

We went there only for a day visit, to use the pool and then the Lunch buffet. It’s relatively good spread of food. Garden, foliage & the main entrance maintained very well.. so beautiful and clean. Reception staffs were very friendly. Just a small comment Pool area to be cleaned and tide-up, just a look a bit worn-out. And also...

This place would have scored way higher if it was half the price. We stayed in a junior suite, booked for 2 adults and 2 children, in the room was only 1 double bed and a tiny sofa, eventually we were brought an extra (very small) bed. Still not quite what I was expecting for $380 a night. The location...

Good hotel in up county of Sri Lanka. Nice weather and mountain view of Kandy. Overall experience of the hotel staff, room and food are average. They don't have that much of area of gardening. Good for people who prefer to climb mountains since Hanthana Mountain range in nearby.

Greeted by friendly staff and a lovely view overlooking the valley. The hotel, however, is generally tired and a bit grubby. The dining room opens onto the back of house passage/service area on one side which wasn't ideal, or nice to see. Our bathroom smelled awful, with rotting pipes/ fittings. Having mentioned this to the staff, not much, if anything...

Upgrade to a better room left us wondering how bad the previous room was! In desperate need of upgrading this hotel offers fabulous views over Kandy and the surrounding views. There is a lovely swimming pool that was freezing! No hot tub as promised and very basic toiletries. The food was a battlefield of a buffet in a very distasteful...

Such great views & it's in the most amazing place! Shame it's all so tired and the food is pretty awful. It needs a refurb & a paint job. Massage wasn't great, towels not smelling clean, everything was rather grubby. Pool changing room (men's) had a dead poisonous spider on the floor. Such a pity because it could be so...
