We stayed here only one night straight from the airport in Colombo so we were tired and suffering culture shock . We were greeted by Nihale who was very smiley and made us feel quite relaxed. The room was great with a comfy bed and a big bathroom. The food was delicious with new and traditional curries and a breakfast even with great muesli. Unexpected in this country. They also gave us lots of fruit for our journey. A wonderful introduction to Sri Lanka

Stayed: July 2014

Although we only stayed one night, we would have loved to have stayed longer. Lovely room, friendly staff, excellent service and great food. The staff were extremely helpful in helping us with onward travel arrangements. Would definitely recommend if visiting Kandy.

My wife booked us in here during low season. The room and location was very nice and staff were very friendly. Dinner was a bit expensive for what was presented but still very nice. I loved the pepper room and the overall location just out of Kandy. 400 rupees for the trip into town it was just far enough to feel relaxed and yet not trapped.
Overall a very nice place and will return when we come to Kandy next.

The Elephant Stables was a wonderful retreat in the busy Kandy area. Our room (Pepper) was very comfortable and had a large "L" shaped terrace. The views were great from our room and from the back garden of the hotel AND from the small terrace across the road from the hotel. There were lots of areas to have a drink before dinner and they all provided beautiful views down the valleys around Kandy. The staff was kind, considerate, helpful and friendly. They took care of us as were were packing our rather large, wooden elephant by providing scissors and packing tape. They arranged to have our breakfast and dinner prepared at a time convenient for us. The food was outstanding. We had egg hoppers with seeni sambol each morning and dinner was always a special treat. I can only say that I wish our stay would have been longer. We were there for only two nights. Nethal was especially accommodating and made sure that we were happy. If you get an opportunity to stay here - take it.

We really enjoyed Elephant Stables. From the beautiful room that was both modern yet retaining it's old charm to the amazing service staff, every little detail was taken care of by Elephant Stables. The views are great which makes up for the fact that Elephant Stables is slightly outside of the city centre. The food here is also very excellent and one night we had an 8 curry dinner which was very sumptuous. Definitely try that if you are staying there!

If you're looking for a big impersonal hotel, this isn't it. In fact it is like what one of the reviewers before said - a sanctuary. We were glad that we chose Elephant Stables instead of where we originally planned to go because it hugely exceeded our expectations and we hope to go back again soon.
