We stayed here for two nights as part of n organised tour. Rooms are newly renovated and were large, modern, clean and very comfortable. We were on the second floor and had nice views over the valley/ hills. It was a very pleasant outlook from on top of the hill. Wifi only available in the lobby. Gym equipment needs updating as there was minimal equipment and it was old. Restaurant food was reasonable and service was good.

Room Tip: Rooms on level 2 or 3 would be best.

We stayed here for two nights in July as part of a tour around Sri Lanka. The lobby area was bright and airy - with free Wi-Fi and good bar service. The food in the restaurant was good buffet style and we enjoyed good wine too. The rooms were recently renovated and the two that we occupied obviously hadn't been fully finished when we were staying - nonetheless it was clean and had good bathroom, TV and tea and coffee making facilities.

+ clean rooms
+ cheap and super-quick laundry
+ good food
+ fast internet in the lobby
+ nice souvenir shop

- crappy internet in the rooms ( 300 SLR for 2 hours and only for 1 device)
- gem shop people were a bit annoying


....funny approach to the plugs ( they have Indian ones and instead of giving us an adaptor they showed how to use a pencil to accept a European plug

Overall- good

Our group of seven(family) spent one night in Kandy at the TOPAZ during the Perahera period. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and modern. Coffee and Tea arrangements in the room was welcome. The hotel is beautifully located on a hill top and the view from the rooms were simply marvelous. The buffet breakfast was sumptuous.Besides the plus points of the property the staff were extremely polite and helpful. If our stay was memorable the credit goes largely to the Guest Relations Officer Aruni Dharmadasa who made us weary travelers feel really welcome as we trudged up the steps of the hotel and during our stay. All in all a wonderful experience, with value for money. We would strongly recommend this hotel to those visiting Kandy.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front side have a very good view.

The rooms are pretty basic and there is a lot of noise from the corridor. The rooms have been recently updated. Food was OK but not fantastic. It is located a the top of a hill overlooking the town and the views from the roof top are nice.
