“Clean and very good value for money”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

2 adults, 3 kids. Could accommodate us all in 1 room (result!)


If you're after a good base to sleep whilst you explore kandy consider here.

It's pretty basic, but very clean and has friendly helpful staff. The food in the top restaurant is pretty decent and good value.

We stayed 2 nights and thought that our stay was very good value for money.

Room Tip: Maybe not the 4th floor where were. When you go to bed at night ( if a little early like us) people...

Nice, comfortable and large A.C room in a five story building. Excellent restaurant, serving until 10 p.m,
and reasonably priced. Facing the hill and under the stars with a nice viewing of the Southern Cross. Nice bathroom with
hot water, soap and shampoo.

Try the top floor restraunt and have a look at the amazing views. Food is OK, they will cook whatever you ask for. It is certainly inexpensive. A good stopping point if you are on a tour. great parking for your tour guide.

Stayed at this hotel on a business trip to Kandy. Convenient place within Kandy city limits. Easy access to all historical sites. Food was good but can definitely be better. The elevator is small and cramped up. corridors are narrow.
Parking space available at the basement and at the front.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the rear mountains. The view is really good.

Nice modern hotel on the outskirts of Kandy about a 10 minute tuk-tuk ride into the centre. Good, clean modern room and bathroom with balcony. Had buffet dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant which is situated on the top floor. Both meals very good and good value. Reception and restaurant staff very friendly.

A short drive to the centre of town.

Rather a strange place, interesting strange. The style is some what of a mixture but in an intriguing way.

Rooms are large, quite basic but comfortable. Bathrooms are rather old fashioned and could do with updating.

Really great photos of old Sri Lanka all over the hotel.

Panoramic lift, not much panorama to look at though.

You do need your own transport to get about.

Breakfast was excellent, made us wish we had had dinner there the night before as well. Restaurant is very quirly, lots of photos and objects dotted around the very large room.

Outside terrace with pleasant views of the country side.

Some traffic noise but nothing to worry about it.

Staff are good , friendly and efficient.A blocked pipe in the bathroom was soon sorted to everyones satisfaction.

Very reasonable for 6000 SL Rupee a night in Kandy. Paid cash never got an invoice.

Good choice if you are on a moderate budget and have you own transport.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

Excellent place to stay. Centrally located with all facilities and a great view to the kandy hill side. The rooms are tastefully decorated with a small balcony which lets in fresh air. Choice of Cuisine is superb. The staff very very warm and friendly and a REAL ASSET to the Hotel. None will regret staying here.
