Went there with my family. We got the rooms we asked for (on the river) and got the interconnected rooms as we requested. The hotel is a 5*. Everything is what you expect out of a 5* hotel but the rooms need serious refurbishment. The hotel was probably last refurbished in the early nineties. The food is really good. No issues there. The pool was nice although colder than you would expect. The staff are very kind and friendly.
You will probably find insects as the hotel is on the Kandy river. Ants were plenty in the bathroom, a small gecko also kept us company. Personally I would not stay there again, but if you have to stay in Kandy I think this is the only 5* hotel.
Oh, and across the river there are thousands of fruit bats that kept us and the kids entertained at sunset. I would not open the balcony doors!
