The Planter's Hotel
Ranked #248 of 451 Kandy B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 September 2012

Situated at the right end of the lake in Kandy, away from the town's traffic and up from the road, this hotel was an impressive find. This main house of a former rubber plantation, provided an elegant entrance that opened into a spacious and comfortable reception area. We were met by what turned out to be, the most delightful team we came across on our travels, which included the husband and wife owners. The room was lovely - clean & spacious, food fantastic, location perfect - not too far away to walk everywhere but far enough away to be calm & quiet and service excellent. Both husband and wife owners were generous, accommodating, interesting and interested people who made a real difference to our stay.

Room Tip: Front on first floor.

We were lucky enough to find this beautiful hotel via bookings.com - After a long hot journey from Negombo, we were greeted with a complimentary glass of fruit juice. We were quickly shown to our huge double room, as tastefully designed as the rest of the hotel. First impressions were very good and these only got better. The staff are lovely! attentive without being overbearing and always happy to help out.

Organising tours to Sigirya and Dambulla and a driver to take us around Kandy itself was quickly dealt with and very good value. The best part for us was the incredible food particularly the Sri Lankan curry either cooked by their own chef or by the owner. We were late back one evening and the chef had gone home and we asked if food was available, without a seconds hesitation the owner said no problem ... What we didn't realise, she was cooking for us herself
the meal was one of the best we had in our Stay In Sri Lanka home cooked very spicy ... perfect
and in fact we were given a huge bag of Sri Lankan spices to take back and experiment with

The Hotel is run by a lovely couple who take great pleasure in discussing Sri Lankan food, Books, Politics and Cricket. We were genuinely sad to leave and would not hesitate to go straight back when we return to Sri Lanka. This is first class hotel great value for money and made staying in Kandy worth while and a great base to visit the Ancient cities and travel on to Ella.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have stunning views over the Hills of Kandy -
