We stayed here as part of a tour and found it perfectly adequate without being anything special. We were lucky to get a room at the back of the hotel with great views over Kandy but most do not. Unfortunately the pool was not working as it was being refurbished but they said we could use a sister hotel down the road.
Food was fairly average but edible, drinks were relatively cheap.
Main gripes were that the shower did not work properly and was frustrating. Plus as we checked out a guy came running out to he car to say we had smashed a bottle in the minibar (we hadn't), but as we were running late we paid and left rather than argue. Also, we were late (compared to everybody else) going to bed and struggled to get some water - in he end we had to beg the night porter who eventually relented.
There are better hotels out there, but fine for one night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Serene Garden Hotel is situated within walking distance of the city centre and overlooking the serene Kandy Lake. Above all these things, something unique about Serene Garden Hotel: its ambience is serene and the experience blends with the unique enchantment that Kandy serenely weaves in the mind of the foreign traveller, as it has done for centuries. From Serene Garden Hotel, it is walking distance to the Dalada Maligawa (The Temple of the Tooth) across the road from the Kandy Lake. This hallowed temple is synonymous with the historic hill capital of Kandy; it is where the tooth relic of the Buddha is enshrined, enduring symbol of a nation’s sovereignty. ... more less
