The hotel has lovely views, and we watched monkeys playing in the trees from our (very narrow) balcony, which we enjoyed. We (and 3 children aged 16, 13 and 9) stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel itself is of an average standard and was clean. The open-air restaurant area is lovely, breakfast was good, and the breakfast staff were...

We stayed here 5 nights and found the people running it helpful and friendly. The restaurant had free wireless internet access which was a big bonus for us. The first night the room we were in was a bit grim, but we were moved to a much bigger and nicer room the next morning when we complained (it seemed we...

Rooms are very basic, not the worst i've stayed in, but more akin to a hostel than a hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, though beware booking a tuk-tuk for the day from the hotel as they take you to lots of places you don't want to go in order to try and make you spend money. Restaurant is...

When we arrived at the dingy location we were slightly concerned. Before even entering we saw that the so called 'swimming pool' was little more than a paddling pool that we were in no hurry to venture into. Despite this we were greeted by delightful staff however when we were shown to our rooms we were appalled and were not...

The hotel is hidden away up a steep hill and a good way out from the hub of kandy! We were shown quickly to our room, by a helpful young man, however, the room was a disgrace! The fan was hanging off the ceiling revealing bare wires, the bathroom was grim at best! There was no plaster on the wall...

Hospitality like no other, so when you plan your trip to Sri Lanka and come to Kandy be sure to book here, because for a budget hotel you get star class service. I have been in Sri Lanka for over two months staying at Kandy View the first three days and came back already 4 times to enjoy Kanchana's (the...

We chose this hotel based on the reviews we read here and were a bit disappointed. On the positive side the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good, especially the breakfast. We were able to check in early after a long flight and the views from the restaurant were stunning, though not really of Kandy. Unfortunately though...

Disappointing, the rooms were not great, although the view from the restaurant was splendid. The real problem however was the room we were in, which was very noisy, directly below the kitchen and right by the main stairs, left here feeling exhausted and anxious!
