“Room with a view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

When we arrived at the hotel the owner convinced us to take the Deluxe room and said that we would see the difference with other rooms. The Deluxe room had a beautiful view indeed while the other rooms we got to see were facing a wall, this convinced us quickly. However, there was nothing 'Deluxe' in this room except the view. The bed sheets were so used that we could see through them and they were torn apart on each border. The mirror light in the bathroom was not working and electric cables were coming out loose. And last but not least the sink was not evacuating the water properly. Despite all this we enjoyed our stay thanks to the kindness of the staff and the good location of the hotel.

This hotel was fabulous for the price. It is at the end of a bit of a bumpy road, however a tuk tuk gets up it fine. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the hotel is kept very clean. The major selling point to this hotel is the view from the top in the restaurant, its amazing. The restaurant is a lovely place to sit and has a great atmosphere. Breakfast was amazing, and also sampled the hotel curry which was delicious and a great price. The staff here are amazing, so helpful and friendly. They organised a tuk tuk tour of Kandy for us which was so cheap and a must do. Everyone in this hotel was raving about how good it was for the price. Would recommend.

We stayed in Kandy only one night during our Sri Lanka holiday. Kandyan View Rest was great choice. We had comfortable room with big bed. Cleanliness of room was on very high grade in regards price level of hotel. Wonderful view from bedroom. Breakfast in time what we needed. Eren (very kind guy from hotel) solved about our transport to dinner and get recommendation for program in Kandy - useful. Very good location, WiFi connection was working.

Room Tip: Bathroom is not incl. the room. But in our case we had available bathroom on floor with two rooms on...

After reading some of the other recent reviews of this hotel I started to wonder whether we had stayed at the same place!
Looking at the hotel photographs on Trip Advisor made me wonder why they put us in such appalling rooms when they clearly have much nicer accommodation available.

We had two external rooms on the outside of the hotel overlooking wasteland which held two very interesting, old and demolished cars (great from a photographic point of view but not from a guest perspective).

The patio area outside the rooms had broken furniture and was being constantly dripped onto by leaky overflow pipes resulting in extensive mould growth.

The rooms were very, very basic and insecure – you could open the sliding windows from the outside and there was no way of locking them! My mother in law was in a single room and felt rather vulnerable.

The sheets were laced with holes and the cleanliness of the rooms left a lot to be desired.
We couldn't tell whether the bathroom furniture was filthy or just plain old?

The staircase just outside our rooms led down onto another level but did not have any safety rail and looked extremely dangerous (although, to be fair, we didn’t need to use these stairs).
The feel of our accommodation and immediate surrounding area felt damp, un-cared for and very rarely used or maintained.

We WERE on a budget accommodation trip but this fell very short of what we reasonably expected.

we enjoyed the atmosphere in the restaurant able to mix with other guests and the local food was very good great views of surrounding area friendly staff out of the rush of the town but for the fit a good walk to the lake and town.

Room Tip: order local dishes in restaurant or get chef to cook exactly what you wanton the restaurant range

We spent 3 nights at Kandy View and highly recommend it. Great value for money. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable enough.
There are beautiful views from the rooftop restaurant, and the food was lovely. Breakfast is included and was delicious.
The staff here are very friendly and helpful, particularly Kay.

I stumbled upon Kandy View Hotel online by accident when I was searching for another hotel. I just took a risk and paid online to book 2 nights in Kandy. Now I'm posting this review thinking to myself "I'm sooo glad I selected this place!" I mean the service is amazing, the atmosphere is amazing, the convenience of the location, the view, so peaceful n private! But most importantly, the rates are absolutely amazingly unbelievable! Wow what a deal! The owner of the hotel himself give personalised service to the guests... the hospitality is amazing!! I will definitely return! N wikk definitely recommend thia place to my friends!
