We stayed with my wife, rooms are very small, it's almost not possible to move.... Our room so close to stages so it was noisy and room has no isolation, very easily you can hear your neighbour...Food and staff were cool...Only 2 good thing about that hotel

For what you can get in this area the prices are far to high, the management is really unfriendly and the room is dirty:
- we were shown a room with aircon - in the evening we wanted to turn it on- and were told that we had to pay 2500 extra..complaining that nobody told us this before the management said that this is our problem and that they will "punish" the poor boy who showed the room, no excuse, no compromise.
By the way,the windows dont close,there is no mosquito net,the bath is dirty and there was blood on the pillow in the bed.
NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL - for 45$ in a small room...luckily we only stayed one night.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful experience. Jude (the manager) and all of the staff were very welcoming and hospitable. Jude is a superb host and a very kind person who loves to make his guests feel at home. We were two women travelling alone and they helped us throughout our stay, arranging day trips out and making us feel safe and have a great time. The rooms were clean and cosy. The breakfast was very tasty. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the hotel is only a short tuktuk ride away from the lake/centre of Kandy. This is very good value for money! We will be sure to stay there again on our next visit to Kandy! We had an unforgettable stay here thanks to Jude and all of his staff!

This hotel was recommended by a Sri Lankan friend of mine.
We stayed 2 nights at a cost of R5500 per night double bed non a/c.
The room we had was at the back of the hotel with the view of a tumbledown building.
The bathroom was very small & tricky to get in & out of.It had mildew.
The bedroom was small with no storage space so we had to live out of our suitcases. It also had a strange smell i couldn't trace.
The room was not serviced during our stay.
Breakfast was good & the staff friendly.
Ok for short stay

The hotel location was a little difficult to find for the driver who came with us from Colombo, but the location on the hill side was a welcome change. Small but cozy, Amanda Hills is more like a house converted into a hotel. There a couple of bed rooms and a living room on each floor, with a rooftop restaurant. The view from the roof or room balcony is brilliant and you can see the Tooth Temple at a distance. The room are very comfortable and clean. It a no frills experience but the price you pay is totally worth it.

We didn't want to stay in Kandy, but the train we suppose to catch was overbooked (we've also learn that this word has way different meaning in Asia than in Europe - it wasn't possible to put anything inside). I found Amanda Hills on TA and booked it on line. The hosts were really friendly, even orders us a cab on the next day (and we traveled with it all the way down to Galle, around 500km). Unfortunately we didn't have hot water in the room (it was barely warm what wasn't problem for me but was a huge one for my girlfriend). The view form the terrace next tot the reception & cafeteria (restaurant?) was really nice (check my photos). That's the only hotel on our trip in Sri Lanka without swimming pool (because of the last minute booking we had no choice).

Dear Jude, thanks for all your hospitality, my family enjoyed every moment, the roof top dinner was unforgettable, it's a family like feeling. The breakfast was good and also he helped us to get the packed breakfast for next day early morning trip to polonnaruwa.

Room Tip: Always ask for a bigger room
