Mount View Lodge
Ranked #188 of 380 Speciality Lodging in Kandy
Reviewed 23 July 2013

The positives - there is a very nice view
Large room with hot water.
Use of the swimming pool

The negatives - despite what the Agoda page says, there is no WiFi, you have to walk to one of the other hotels.
Some rude staff
Dirty room and bathroom - when I asked why the top sheet was dirty I was told it was because they don't always wash those sheets. Honest perhaps but disgusting!
Over priced food
Over priced laundry
Over priced transport to town (700 when you can get a tuktuk for 300)
The 'restaurant' is actually just a table. The food is prepared in the hotel next door so how hot it is depends on how fast someone walks across with it.

I hope my experience is unique.

I would, personally, never stay here again.

I certainly don't think it's suitable for anyone without transport.

Whilst a number of the issues, particularly concerning the cleanliness of the room, were resolved quickly it is concerning that things were in the state they were to start with. Also that some of the staff didn't seem to see what the problem was.

It could be a very nice budget place to stay, just not at the moment.

Room Tip: Как мы поняли, не все номера там с балконами, так что если хотите с балконом, то лучше попросите.
