Reviewed 24 May 2012

Not much to say, staff were decent, rooms were ok, food was not bad and owner was nice enough and very concerned about the hotels reputation, but all in all it was decent for the price. No frills but no bad points either.

We stayed here for one night the room was good. Location a short tuk tuk ride to centre. Breakfast was excellent. We arranged a pick up from the airport and the price appeared reasonable 55 dlrs but they wanted far too much for the next leg of our journey we got it for 50 dlrs cheaper from a taxi at the queens hotel. Apart from this the hotel was very good and I would stay again

Nice hotel, located on one of the Kandy's hills. Not too far from the city center.

Room are small, but nice and clean, as well as bathrooms. AC, hot water - everything is in place. Some rooms have very nice balconies with the view (on upper levels).
Hotel has a rooftop restaurant, food is OK, but a little bit overpriced.

I have stayed for 2 nights in April 2012. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, can organize trips and provide advice on transportation and what to see. The room is basic, no fridge or minibar or other more-star perks, but clean and spacious and with an absolutely AMAZING view on the valley. Bathroom clean and functional. Although the rooms could do with a bit of refurbishing, they are definitely not in a bad shape and worth the price. Breakfast, although same every day was delicious (pol sambol, rice with vegetables, dhal and continental stuff (eggs, toasts, jams etc.). I can definitely recommend the hotel to anyone travelling to Kandy and looking for good value for money and a beautiful scenery view.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe option for great view of the valley.

By my review I’d like to thank Mr. J, Kandy View Hotel manager. I’m not aware of his full name – J was the way he introduced himself. I have to say it was a good idea cause sri lankan names have one thing in common which is escaping your memory by all means, you know. J was one of the few Sri Lanka hotel managers who really cared about his guests. He would check in guests at the reception desk, participate in making food and approach guests at the hotel restaurant to talk to them, to solve any issues, to offer a drink on the house or just chat. There was that nagging old man from Sweden at the restaurant one day who bothered J with some very minor issue for half an hour (and the issue was not even related to the hotel or its manager) and J never lost his nerve and remained polite and calm and as helpful as possible. Can you imagine that a manager of your hotel will take care of a dent at your rental car absolutely free of charge? I mean we paid only to the car shop guys. We came to that car shop together and then my gf and I left on a tuk tuk while J stayed at the shop to drive the car back to the hotel after the repair work had been done. What a cool man!

The room we’d booked turned out to be occupied so we got an upgrade to a large suite on the top floor of a separate building. Actually the whole floor was available exclusively for us. Both the room and the view from it were gorgeous. The restaurant located on the top floor of the main hotel building is very good in terms of food, service, views and feeling. I do not know why but we never even checked the pool so I cannot say anything about it.

So, if I find myself in Kandy one day I won’t be thinking too much about accommodation selection. In fact I won’t think at all. I’ll simply go to Kandy View Hotel.

P.S. A reminder for J: please put a neon sign with the name of the hotel at the road side – we missed the turn three times before we finally found it.

A great place to relax in the restaurant with helpful staff able to organise tours to suit, transport or give local advise. Good value for money if basic and would benefit from a little more up to date maintenance. That said we had no complaints from our 2 children and enjoyed the days spent in Kandy with thanks to the staff.

Room Tip: Main suite under the restaurant had good views and sitting room
