We had a lovely balcony room and it was lovely to sit in the mornings and evenings and enjoy the view over Kandy. There is a lot of traffic noise in Kandy itself, so we were really happy we chose to stay in a location just outside of town where we couldn't hear the traffic and horns honking. A three-wheeler ride from center of town to the hotel will run you about 100 to 200 rupees, which is about one or two US dollars, so if you get tired you can easily just ride instead of walking.
We did discover that there is a cultural show just next door at 5:30 in the evening so if you need absolute quiet it might disturb you. But we found it a hoot to hear the drumming and even got to wave at some of the gorgeous dancers on their breaks!
We did see some monkeys but they were not a problem at all. The staff and owner are very friendly and helpful. You can use the computer in the downstairs lobby to print out boarding passes etc for free and there is also free wifi. Evidently Nature Walk, although it's a fairly new hotel, is already very well known and highly regarded in Kandy, and even one of the travel agents in Colombo said I would love it, so we were happy we chose the right place. The bed was very good, the room smallish but large enough to walk comfortably around, and we had no problems with hot water at all. Breakfast is ok, nothing special, eggs fruit, toast and tea or coffee. Hopefully I will be back in Kandy some day and I will definitely choose Nature Walk again!
