We stayed at kandy view for two nights. On arrival, which was early evening, we were met by three young clueless boys who had misplaced our booking (we had paid in advance, around £18.50 per night including breakfast). After a very slow check in, we were given a complementary juice drink which was a nice touch. Our room unfortunately was awful. It was an outdoor room that was rather dirty. Sheets did not look clean, and bathroom especially very worn. The forest location was beautiful by day, but felt unsafe at night with no security, and the reception closing to darkness by 9pm at the latest. Wifi was very poor and really only available in the small reception. Pool was small, but looked okay (it was slightly dirty which put me off). On the positive side, breakfast was decent, and the lady who served us very pleasant. For the money, we have since stayed at much better places in Sri Lanka. I would return, but would be sure to have an inside room, although the hotel would not be my first choice. If you go, please visit the garden cafe, it is about a ten minute walk from hotel and is down by the lake - all the locals go here for dinner and it is the best authentic Sri Lankan food we have tried all over Sri Lanka. We both are for around £1.50 each including coke etc. It is a real gem.
