We spent our first three nights of a three week trip to Sri Lanka at Kandy View, and - for the price we paid - we would find it difficult to fault it. We had one of the deluxe rooms at the top and the double aspect view alone made it worth the money. Like other reviewers, I would say...

5 of us stayed here for only one night whilst on a trip around the cultural triangle, We were welcomed by the manager and a free juice apon arrival, which was nice. The rooms are average but clean. We ate at the resturant and the food was good. Would stay again but only for a short time.

We stayed here for a few days in March 2012 in a top floor "deluxe" room. The room isnt overly "deluxe" but totally fine for our needs. It was clean, the bed comfortable, air con quiet and everything worked fine. The view from the open air restaurant area is stunning. We actually ate here every night. Usually the rice and...

Had a great stay at Kandy View Hotel. The staff are excellent and very helpful and they do what they can to make your stay a lifetime memory. The terrace/restaurant became a natural meeting point where guest connected and got to know each other over a drink in the evening after dinner. The food is excellent so it is no...

After a few days by the coast we stayed in Kandy to see the city and do an excursion to the elephant orphanage. The hotel is up a steep hill at the far end of the lake so a 250 rupee auto rickshaw is required from the railway station, but the drivers will attempt to get far more. Our room...

I made my booking with Kandy View Hotel online. The owners were very accommodating, putting me up in an apartment near the hotel because the hotel itself was booked. The apartment was only slightly more expensive than a room at the hotel, and it was far more spacious than I needed. It was clean, quiet, and there were no mosquitoes....
