There is a nice pool to relax by at the end of the day. The hotel is, as the name suggests, at the... More

A nice stay in a hotel. We stayed for a 1 night here, will recommend valley view if given a choice. Wifi doesn't work in hotel rooms. A staff is little stubborn, Tea/ Coffee whitener was served only twice in a day.

It is a good hotel set on the hills of Kandy. You should be ready for going up and down stair cases. Ambiance is excellent. The restaurant offers good food. Has a good hill view from the rooms. Swimming pool is also well maintained.

Stayed one night with my wife during weekend on our visit to Kandy. It's a nice place to stay in. It's situated on top of a hill. Hotel staff was friendly and the food was good. Room rates are reasonable too.
