Elephant Stables was the penultimate stop of our honeymoon in Sri Lanka, and it certainly didn't disappoint. We booked our room all the way back in June when only three reviews were shown on tripadvisor (apparently it's only been open since April), so we made a bit of a punt, but it definitely paid off, and we're not surprised the hotel is now ranked number two in Kandy.
We stayed in the Citronella Suite which was absolutely amazing. The room was really stylish with plenty of space including a huge four poster bed, and the bathroom looked so good my wife said she'd like one just like it at home!
The location couldn't have been better, set up in the hills overlooking Kandy, which was really breathtaking. The service was excellent, with all the team being very attentive and always happy to help. This extended to the manager waking up at 5am for our check out to drive us to the train station. Certainly service above expectation!
The food was delicious, with the menu offering a nice mix of local and western dishes. The chef coming out after every meal to make sure everything was ok was also a nice touch.
All in all a fantastic stay. If we ever come back to Kandy we'd certainly be booking back into the Elephant Stables!
