Myself and my partner were upgraded to this hotel through tour company Elephant Island who were opening the boutique hotel as part of their 20th anniversary. Myself and my husband were only the third couple to stay there, and what a stay we had. It was amazing. As if Kandy isn't romantic and amazing wherever you are staying, Elephant Stables just contributed to that. It's been so well done up and it's beautiful. The staff couldn't do enough for us - the views are trememndous. The guys working there disappeared for ages in the evening to do what we thought was a turn down service but it was a swan dispplay with flowers and petals for our honeymoon. The pool looks out over the valley. We sat with a beer on the terrace in the evening and watched the thunderstorms. The rooms were gorgeous. The food was out of this world - we had about 10 different dishes. The chef came out to talk to us personally. Honestly, we were sad that we only got to stay here one night, and we will be going back there in a few years to celebrate an anniversary (if we can afford it!!) The chef made me Eggs Florentine the next morning which I had never had before, and it was well tasty, in fact the breakfast as a whole was just delicious :)
