We arrived in the evening and our arrival was lovely. Next morning we had a great breakfast and the manager of the hotel, mr Jude, is really really friendly! Also the other employees are very nice. The hotel is clean with a good bed and shower! We also did the tour into the Knuckles! That was awesome! I loved it here!

This hotel was the most expensive where i stayed in sri lanka and probably the worst quality/price ratio. The hotel was ok, but not for 47 euros per night (double room). The smell in the room was nod good, the sheets were not very clean and was the only hotel without mosquito net ( i did not see any mosquito). The hotel is not far from the centre, but a tuk tuk is needed. I would try to look for another hotel, but if not, this would be correct. The breakfast was quite good with nice views of the city.

For me it is incomprehensible why the hotel has many good reviews. This also makes tripadvisor unbelievable!
The rooms are very small, not well maintained and the cleaning is insufficient. The whole place has no atmosphere.
Breakfast is below average. One day there was not even eggs. On demand, it was only the statement given: No eggs!
All this for a room rate above 80 US !!!

Another things from the Goldbrick:
The plastic cups (!) for the coffee are moldy ...never mind the kettle does not fit into the socket anyway (needs an adapter) ...
ok, no problem, I can call the room service by phone ... oops, the phone is not connected, no cables ...
the average price for such a property is in Sri Lanka under 35 US

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and are very pleased with the stay.

Location: on the hillside with walking distance to Kandy city center.

Rooms: Average standard. Possible to get A/C.

Restaurant: at the top of the hotel with a nice view. We especially recommend the Sri lankan dishes and desserts. Excellent service.

Service/management: this was excellent and very unique. When we first arrived we asked the manager Jude if he could help us to find a Sri lankan cooking class in Kandy. He invited us personally in to the restaurant kitchen, and Jude and the chefs gave us a personal cooking class of Sri lankan dishes from scratch! We received the recipies and enjoyed the meal after the class and it tasted amazing! And the whole class was free of charge!! Later we wanted to see the temple of the sacred tooth, and since we had to hurry before the temple closed, Jude personally drove us to the temple so we would get there in time! Jude also provided other useful tips and trips to take during our stay in Kandy.

This hotel is all about giving 110% for the customers and provide the best service! We highly recommend the hotel!

I have stayed at this hotel three times now. I travel to the City of Kandy on business once a year and I have found Mr Jude to be a very good host to his guest. He and his personel at the hotel are kind and courteous. The rooms have been clean and comfortable and the food has been wonderful. I will continue to stay at this hotel and that is a great recommendation.

It was littile hard finding the hotel location as its a hilly are full pf hotels. But soon after we got it and it was perfect.
It overlooks the whole city but still you can enjoy some wildlife enviroment such as monkeys and birds.
The management is very helpful mainly Mr Joud who runs personally his business.
Breakfast is tasty and can be enjoyed in a well placed balkony
Try it, you will like it.

We stayed here and expected more for the price we paid. Jude, the manager is nice and friendly though we were misinformed about train ticket availability. The room had a decent view but that was about it; the tv and ac were old and barely worked and the bathroom was dirty. The included breakfast was good though. We thought there was wifi in the room but learned later found out that it was only in the common areas.
