We slept there 2 nights. Room was not big, but very comfortable, including AC and clean bathroom with hot water and all the bathroom utensils provided. We has a beautiful view from a tiny balcony. Also, the complementary breakfast was good - big choice of both Western and more Sri Lankan food. Our driver liked the driver's accommodation too.
On the bad side, there was a high fee for the internet, which is surprising considering the hotel tries to have a very western image.
The very steep driveway to the hotel could not be reached with a non-modern car - so watch out if you use an older vehicle.
The hotel is far from the nice part of Kandy.
It was quite costly.
