As part of a family tour of Sri Lanka we had the pleasure of staying one night at the Elephant Stables. As already indicated it is new and extremely well decorated and comfortable. The rooms are spacious and the facilities excellent. We arrived after 7pm but the manager was more than happy for the kids to get in the pool as they had not started cleaning it yet. The food was lovely and the chef made sure we had plenty of choice. The service was faultless and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would love visit for longer. The hotel is up a hill so provides excellent views of Kandy.

was here at the beginning of august with my family and all of us loved it. the rooms are beautiful and the views and decor of this place are stunning. the staff are really friendly and food was great. i really wish we had more time at the Elephant Stables as we were only there for one night. would love to go back and spend more time there.

This newly refurbished and converted boutique hotel is an absolute delight, from the furnishings, bathrooms, to the service, the ambience and the cuisine. The welcome and service from Nihal, and the Manager, was most sincere and warm. Throughout the evening Nihal ensured that our stay was comfortable, and that we had everything we needed. The food prepared byTyrone, the chef, was easily the most succulent and tasty of our trip so far. It was so nice to have a proper meal from a fresh selection menu, rather than the perennial buffet that so many places provide. In fact I would have to say that the evening meal and the breakfast were the best we have had not only in Sri Lanka, but indeed for some time. The only shame was that we were only booked in for one night, but if we were to return I would certainly look to book Elephant Stables again. Highly Recommended.

Dropped in at Elephant's Stable for few minutes to check out the place on our yearly hotel visit, and was simply amazed!

Clean & comfortable, great view and weather, this is probably the best place to stay in Kandy!

Stayed here for only one night - was like having our own private villa. The rooms are lovely and the gardens, pool and setting are a wonderful break from travel. The staff were very helpful and the food was of an excellent standard. We had an early start but wanted to use the pool. This was no problem and everyone was up to provide towels and loungers at 6.30 am

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms were available in the old house. We used 2 and both were excellent
