The hotel location is peaceful and the view from the restaurant is fantastic. The breakfast buffet had a large selection but as always in Sri Lanka the coffee was not up to much. The rooms were serviceable and clean but the bathroom very small. We were on the bottom floor and there was a lot of noise from the kitchen...

The basement room that we got, was quite musty and due to its proximity to the staff quarters, was quite loud. The bathrooms were large and spacious. The restaurant for breakfast was fine but the evening selection and food was not very good. The WIFI was very slow and unreliable. The hotel lies above the city and the views were...

Nice service and staff. Great pool to cool off in. However the bathrooms were extremely mouldy and smelly. The windows didnt open and the Venetians were damaged. So the bathroom never gets air. Sheets too small on single beds. Beds lumpy and thin lumpy pillows too. Stay somewhere else- closer to town.

There is something about Kandy, the name promises a lot, especially the buzzing Temple of the Tooth, yet, it feels a bit overrated. Same can be said about the Senani Hotel. Mountain & lake view from restaurant is great (if you are lucky to have one of the few tables at the edge) but that couldn't be said about the...

For me this hotel was a little too far from the town of Kandy as I like to walk you need the services of a tuk tuk. On the positive side the staff were lovely and the food for both breakfast and dinner was very good. The rooms were small and basic, the beds soft and springy. Sadly I feel...

I stayed here after a long tour of Kandy, including the Tooth Temple, Kandy Lake and watching a cultural show in the city centre. The hotel has three floors with no lift. I stayed in the 3F with a good view of the pool and some parts overlooking the city. They have average selection of breakfast but the views are...

Located on a hillside with reasonable views. The hotel looks updated from the outside, around the reception, pool and dining areas but I can't say the same for the rooms. The mattresses are too springy, blinds in the bathroom bent and damaged, allowing "great views" from the outside, hot water was only lukewarm and the worst of it all was...

Located in close proximity to Kandy town, Senani Hotel is yet another best hotels of the Senani and Oak-Ray group. You'll find the unique friendly atmosphere you find in any Senani/oak-ray group of hotels. The view, especially from the restaurant, is breathtaking.

Room was clean and tidy. Staff were great. Nice walk down the hill to the lake. Popped into the bamboo slightly chilled bar. Fantastic view of Lake from rooftop. Hotel good for a couple of nights but depends on expectations. Food was OK but I like local spicy so suited me. View from restaurant balcony a must.

Hi Nice for short stay in between of a continuous trip. Restaurant was normal one . Typical buffet only. Mountain view is enjoyable . Sheets were not clean and asked them to change them . Best for short / transit stays.
