I stayed here in December on a JetWing tour with my husband. His father stayed in an adjacent room. The hotel has been recently renovated with beautiful topaz tones in the bedrooms. Gorgeous pool with a great view and tennis courts that I did not get to use but also looked great. But the best part was the great service...

Few not so good things: children's play area is of no use, swimming pool is on the other side of the road with some stairs, they not give extra water...

The Topaz Hotel is on a hill in Kandy and offers a fantastic view from the terrace, the breakfast room or even from you hotel room. But you always need a car when you want to visit the city. First we had a double room which was on the second floor and quite nice, but we had to change the...

Only stayed for one night but it was very comfortable and the staff very friendly . Food was excellent as was the wine. Situated on a hillside with fantastic views of Kandy and the mountains. Only thing lacking was electrical outlets in the room to charge camera batteries e,c.t. Lovely reception area with great views

We stayed here in November as part of our tour of Sri Lanka. The hotel had a corporate feel to it and the corridors were very noisy. That said the staff were very attentive. We did not eat as we fancied just relaxing with room service.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Topaz was built in 1976 and fashioned after a much loved gem stone found in Sri Lanka. Considering its situation in the hill capital of Kandy, the last royal stronghold in the country, Hotel Topaz is considered the jewel in the crown of Kandy.Nestled amidst lush tropical greenery, surrounded by the distinctive Knuckles Mountain range and Bible Rock, enveloped in the cool winds blowing through the mountains, Hotel Topaz offers something for everyone.The short distance away from the city centre itself, lends the hotel and its guests maximum accessibility no matter what the choice of activity is. However Hotel Topaz offers guests a tranquil setting and the option of exploring the city’s rich heritage in style and comfort.The warm and personal service serves to truly bring out the widely famed Sri Lankan hospitality. Guests at Hotel Topaz are made to feel at home, and explore the surrounding gardens or have a cocktail or high-tea on our famous rooftop terrace with its 360 degree view of the city and its hills. ... more   less
