“Amazing view and good food”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. We had booked a triple bedroom. The room was clean. The bathroom was bit to small. The shower was not spacious. House keeping is horrible. They did not sweep the floors or clean the bathroom. The hotel is located very close to the railway station. The view of the Kandy city from the hotel is excellent. The prices for the room are a bit too high. The staffs are quite friendly. There is small shop in the hotel where one can buy some souvenirs. Breakfast buffet is very good. There are lot of options available for vegetarians. The pool was clean. The room was overlooking the city and the railway station. It might be difficult to cope up with the sounds of the trains in the night. It is decent place to stay for a day or two.

Room Tip: book a room that has a view of the city.

An average hotel,old building, bad smell whole around building,swimming pool is good, staff hurry to check-in n checkout, in food : fruits are very good but they will be watching to clear plate even before we complete.
If stay for a day n visit place outside most of the time means good. couples just avoid.

This hotel is located on the hill and gives one a beautiful view of Kandy. The location is perfect for leisure as well as business travelers alike.

The rooms are big and very spacious. They are also very fresh and clean. The bathrooms, likewise, are very large and give you ample space to do your cleaning up. The toiletries used were of very average quality. I would recommend getting your own lotions etc.

The hotel offers complimentary WiFi, though signals are weak in the rooms.

The breakfast was ample and good but had few vegetarian options. Nevertheless the service and quality of what was offered was very nice.

The rent is less than USD 100 and for that price, this hotel is a bargain.
I would recommend this to business travelers as well as tourists.

Been to this hotel on three or more occasions , an average hotel , the staff was very courteous , the rooms are spacious after refurbishing , very clean , a large restaurant with lot of space , the food was okay to suit both locals and the foreigners , a nice place to be and it's worth for what we pay.

Room Tip: try to get a room overlooking the busy streets and the railway station.

We stayed here on15th May and the place is alright and clean. The room gives a good view around the city & it was beautiful on the Wesak eve.
When we went to the restaurant to have dinner I found there was not much variety and i was so disappointed since I knew that they could have done better. The pool is also not cleaned properly and we decided not to get in to the same.
If you wants to stay in this place go for B&B , as there B'Fast is alright and the rooms are clean & tidy.

We stayed for 3 days at the end of April. The room we had for very large and was well presented. It had a lovely view overlooking the city and railway station. The pool was lovely and quiet. The evening Buffett was plentiful and a nice introduction to Sri Lankan food. Would definitely stay again.
