“My friend has a serious bromance with the mannager”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Well the thing is that you going to stay in a basic room, 5 min. from Kandy Lake,15 min from the center of the city ,and the Tooth temple and thats what you pay for...What you dont pay is for the amazing hospitality you get and a very friendly and honest manager,,Jude... Which by the way is also ,probably the best cook ever...Next to the oldest hotel of kandy ,Sharon inn which we did read goed comments for the buffet and try,,,,but still all the other days we ate in the terrace of Amanda Hills...Amazing food , very nice breakfast,very friendly stuff...all goed..

it's a great place. Absolutly suggested. The ower is a great person, it helps for finding all the places. If you go to Kandy you can not miss Amanda Hills. Beautiful terrace and great view and stuff very very friendly. If i will go to Srilanka again i will go there for sure.

Without pre-booking we arrived to Saranankara road in Kandy where are all the main hotels and guesthouses. Amanda Hills hotel is at the very end of the street but we chose it for it's good price and very friendly atmosphere. Since we didn't ask for A/C rooms they gave us a slight discount. The hotel is well arranged with rooms in clusters of 2 or 3 with common lounge. Rooms were not too spacious but the lounge helped. Restaurant is at the top floor with nice view across the lake on Temple of the Sacred Tooth (main Buddhist temple). Food was great with very friendly and attentive staff. Manager himself came to ask few times during our stay if everything is fine for us and was helpful to arrange transport and other things. Big bonus was laundry service. Only minus was incoherent WiFi connection.

This hotel had a very nice, clean room, great service and great food. The manager helped us plan our activities in kandy and it was one of the best guest houses I have stayed at in Sri Lanka. It even had a TV in the room. The only drawback is there are 4 flights of stairs to the restaurant with no lift but we were ok with that.

+ Service of the staff was very nice. They gave us a bigger room when it was not so busy. Breakfast was good. Manager brought us one time to the city when there were no tuktuk available. Location is nearby the city.
- did not clean every day, they switched off the wifi every night.

We had a great time staying here. It's basic but good compared to other Kandy accomodation and is clean and comfortable. The staff really make this place - always on hand to help or advise. They organised all our trips (Sigiriya/Dambulla), airport and train runs and fed us so well every morning and the evening we stayed in for dinner. There are amazing views over Kandy lake and mountains from the terrace and the centre of town is a short walk or tuk tuk away. I would highly recommend!

We stayed at Amanda hills for two nights and found it a nice, quiet place with good basic facilities. Rooms were clean (although they didn't service our room during our stay) and the balcony has a decent view down the valley towards the lake. Breakfast is ok, but the Sri Lankan lunch we had when we arrived was fabulous and I would recommend it. Kandy is just a short walk down the hill from the hotel but you might want to get a tuk tuk back up. Overall a good place to stay and would be happy to go back.
