Earls Regency indeed is well equipped to give you a royal experience. We stayed at the hotel for 2 days on a business visit. This amazing property is well run and has many reasons to return. Staff is well groomed and the service was just fantastic. It has spacious rooms and the 5th floor rooms give you a nice view...

Earl's Regency is a large, spread out hotel perched on a hillside, so it has a great view. Rooms are very large, with balconies in both bedroom and bath. Very quiet, with comfortable beds. There are mosquitos, but the hotel fogs the area at dusk. Two restaurants, the hotel's and an excellent N. Indian place. 24 hr bar lounge. Huge...

My wife and I are leading a group of 21 friends and our tour operator suggested this hotel which was fortuitous since I knew that when in Kandy I would want us to have a meal at The Royal Spice restaurant -- which is located on the premises! See separate review. The only issue I have is with the design...

A short curvy uphill drive from the main road leads you to the welcoming smiles of the welcoming staff at the imposing entrance. You are greeted with glasses of cold herbal tea. The paper work is quick and painless. You are then led up in an elevator to the second floor and across to the block of hotel suites via...

This is a solid - albeit slightly dated - hotel with great staff, big rooms, and a nice view. However, it is the main destination for the large tour groups passing through the area so meals can be chaotic. In fact, the combination of the tour groups, the huge dining room (along with piano player playing cheesy covers) and massive...

This place is pretty retro, like 1980s retro. They play terrible music in the bar (lots of Kenny G), the bathrooms sorely need an overhaul, and they managed to screw up our bill (putting room charges for three rooms all on one bill, then leaving us to unpick it). But having said all that, we had a great time there....

Beautiful gardens and beautiful pool, but not worth it. The hotel is need of an upgrade as it looks tired. We were put in a room at the back of the hotel, about 10 minutes walk away from the main restaurant, and paid around 500 GPB for 3 nights including food. We have stayed in much better places down south...

This is one of the memorable places that keeps me going back and forth, have visited many times and would still go, from the outer look it doesn't appeal much but its a really cozy place once u enter the hotel , even if I don't have time to stay I would stop for a meal even. Great service and...
