I really do not understand why this hotel has got so good reviews on here.
We arrived exhausted at 10 pm after eight hour train ride from Matra (sp?).
We had no booking, but got a room for 7500 rupies. The owner/manager offered us to order dinner even though the kitchen was about to close, so we chose a couple of dishes from the menu before we took our backpacks and headed for the room.
A very good start indeed!
We offloaded our luggage and went back to the restaurant.
When the food arrived, so did the owner/manager. He was trying to sell us some tours for the next morning. Very bad timing since he must have seen how exhausted we were. The dinner was nothing special either, but we didn’t expect that since we arrived late.
We went to sleep immediately after dinner, and went into a coma until next morning.
The breakfast was below average. Eggs, sausages, jam and pineapple was what was on offer.
Good view from the restaurant though.
The room (203) was small, and the bathroom was very small. I would guess that a big bloke would have difficulties maneuvering to the toilet. The electric worked, and the room had tv/fridge. The balcony in our room had no view. Lots of stairs in this hotel since it is built up a hill. You need a tuk-tuk to get to the city center.
I liked Kandy very much, but I guess you can find better options when it comes to accommodation.
