Firstly, you don't realize your in busy Kandy while staying here. The hotel is up a hill and a quiet location.
It was a pleasant stay. It felt very clean, modern and new.
My partner has bad knees and I had a sore leg from climbing Sigiriya so don't stay in on the top floor if you suffer with knee problems! The steps are steep.
The food was nice. We had the same 2 nights in a row because it was so tasty! The only thing wrong was the dining area design makes it very noisy. There were a family (2 parents + 2 children) staying at the same time as us and all we wanted was to chill out over dinner but found it difficult from the noise levels echoed around the room.
The room was lovely. It felt super clean, spacious and safe. Great bathroom, warm water shower.
The staff were truly amazing.
