We stayed for 2 nights as part of our Sri Lanka trip and found this hotel via TA reviews. We were not disappointed, our driver had not been here before and after a driver up the hills we reached the hotel. Mark greeted us and showed us to our room, 204.
It was late so we didn't appreciate the views until we woke the next day. Amazing, we had views from both sides as our balcony went all the way round as our room was at the end so we had the hills and the town on either side, this alone would have warranted a return.
The breakfast is simply divine, Sri Lankan breakfast with hoppers and veg curry pre ordered the night before and cooked to perfection. It was brilliant, could not fault the presentation, taste or quantity. You can see that the hotel has invested in its branding by the amount of personalised crockery they have.
On our second breakfast we were greeted by a champagne breakfast courtesy of he hotel, this was a lovely surprise and Samarath our waiter was so friendly and attentive.
Th hotel offers a free movie service which is nice for when you just want to relax.
Only reason I rate it a 4 is the room itself, toiletries not new/full, tv hard to operate and decor slightly dated, but not off putting. Also the tumtuk driver arranged by the hotel, Manju seemed a little intoxicated or extremely happy, but a bit scary for us and he overcharged but that would be something individuals should agree in advance so hotel not at fault.
I would 100% go again and recommend this hotel to anyone going to Kandy.
