The hotel has great views from the pool area. Loved it. Even the balcony area for the upper floor room was nice.

Good size and clean rooms. Friendly staff. Breakfast was good - and even for vegetarians there were decent options.

This hotel is a bit off the road. And was a bit tricky to locate at night.

We had a fabulous 4 night stay at this small hotel on the outskirts of Kandy. The hotel is in a spectacular setting outside the hustle and bustle of Kandy. The service was excellent, the food was great and the hotel also offers driver accommodation for a nominal sum. The infinity pool was lovely after a day out exploring.

This hotel is off the beaten track and was a little tricky to find in the dark, however it was well worth the effort

Had a fantastic three night stay in this hotel, it is in a beautiful setting with great views. Spacious rooms with good working air con and wifi. The staff are very helpful and helped arrange our tuk tuks into Kandy, which is only about 25 minutes away. The breakfast is amazing with so much variety including pancakes, roti, curry and fruit. Dinner is also very nice although a bit more expensive than other hotels. The pool area is great with very nice views. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel was quite up in the hills outside of Kandy, but the views from our window were so worth it. The staff here were very welcoming and had a room included in our rate for our hired driver, which was very convenient. The bed was comfortable, and the room was nice. We had a lovely breakfast on the terrace in the morning, and would definitely stay here again if traveling in Sri Lanka.

We stayed in this hotel for four nights, and were amazed at its location, as was just 20 mins from the hectic city of Kandy. It felt extremely rural and like a retreat. Although the food was a little more expensive than anticipated, and there were limited other options available, it was constantly delicious and the staff came to our every need. The cooler pool (a nice contrast to the warmer atmosphere) had a beautiful view and was clean and lovely to swim in.
Would recommend this hotel for those looking for a relaxing escape.

We only stayed for one night before catching the train to Ella. The staff were so helpful and welcoming and kind. I would definitely recommend staying here. It is a little far out of Kandy but we stayed here for dinner and breakfast and a respite from the heat and noise. The breakfast is amazing and they even packed some sandwiches for our train trip. The pool and garden great also. Thanks so much for having us
