Simply a lovely hotel with a very nice pool, comfortable rooms near the pool en very, very good buffets. With a short cut you walk to the tooth temple and city Center ! Nice to walk around their and do some shopping! The hotel is quit big and has many guests from all over the world. We would like to return here

We had a room high in the hotel, the higher is better because of the view.
The room are large and bathroom is good. The rooms in the new area are the best.

The buffet is ok! Good options and some live-cooking.

However it is a big hotel with alot of groups that make some noise.

Room Tip: Rooms that are on a higher level give the best view.

I stayed here for one night in July 2014.

This hotel is in a good location near the centre of Kandy. It sit on a hill, and the room I had looked over Kandy.

It is a very simple hotel. The rooms are large, but feel very dated. My room, supposedly a double, had two single beds pushed together, single sheets, duvets and so on.

The food is not good. I tried a tuna curry and spent several minutes trying to fish (excuse the pun) bones out of my mouth.

I'd stay here again, but would not eat here and would not want to spend any significant amount of time in the hotel.

We used Kandy as base for the tea country and visit Sigiriya

The hotel management were very helpful we had arranged a driver before for two day trips and the transfer to Galle. The first night was noisy we were upgraded to the penthouse the biggest bathroom I have ever enjoyed

The breakfast buffet was good.

A busy hotel we were happy

We were staying for a one night in the hotel, the rooms were clean and spacious. Had issues with parking spots, since they don't have adequate parking space for their visiors. Also the hotel requested us to move to another room in the morning since they have been overbooked.

So not quite pleased with the service offered. Other than that the hotel is a good place to stay in Kandy. Food was good, we had some local cuisines and they were served very nicely.

The welcome from the staff was very nice but aside from that everything else was horrible. From the time we opened the car door at the entrance ;there was a very strong smell of cooking, lobby very dated, the walk to the room was through a very old, dirty and grim hallway. The room had a double bed with two single mattresses which was no good for us since our son sleeps in the middle. Very old and dirty room, lighting grim. The small balcony looked out onto a pleasant view but was not decent for enjoying a drink on. Checked out immediately!
