We stayed (myself, my wife and daughter) two nights in this heritage hotel two years back. It is located at the heart of the city, in front of the Kandy lake. Dalada, The Tooth Relic of Lord Buddha, the cultural centre and the market, are just at a walking distance from the hotel. It is a building of British colonial architecture which is almost a century old and now renovated and modified into a 3-star hotel. Reception and other staff were cooperative, the travel desk person was helpful. The ambience of the restaurant, music accompanying dinner were alright, but not the food. Anyway, there is a Pizza Hut adjacent, just in front of the Dalada bus stand and many more small restaurants nearby, so eating outside was not a problem. Some rooms are having the old llook and dampness, probably bacause it was raining that time, and a bit noisy due to the location; otherwise for a short duration family trip it is an ideal hotel.
Rent was not too high ($85 per night) as booked on net at discounted rate, it is worth of that.
