We stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon in Sri Lanka, and highly recommend Elephant Stables to anyone looking for a classy, top-notch but personable place to stay in Kandy. The food was excellent (breakfast specially - the coconut pancakes and egg hoppers were winners). Beautifully furnished room and excellent, up to date bathrooms. The surroundings are absolutely stunning, with the lawns and pools set amid a backdrop of the beautify green hills of Kandy. Staff was all very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. After the hours of driving that came with our daily sightseeing trips (pretty standard in SL), we loved coming back to the serenity and peace of Elephant Stables every evening.
We did think a few things were a bit steeply priced (wine and laundry came with a bit of a sticker shock!), but perhaps that is what is needed to keep a slightly smaller hotel profitable.
Definitely not for budget travelers, but a lovely and one-of-a-kind hotel nonetheless.
