My girlfriend and I stayed at Kandy View for 3 nights in the middle of August this year.
'K' the manager was incredible, very helpful in sorting out Tuk-Tuk/Taxi drivers for short trips or the whole day. He found the right balance of not being too pushy in selling day-trips and guided tours, a trait not shared by many hoteliers in SL. We caught a very early train (0330) on our last morning and the Tuk-Tuk driver didn't turn up, so K took us to the train station himself, what a gesture!!
The rooms were tidy, and the aircon worked perfectly. The evening food basic but cheap and tasty, but there was fresh fruit and well cooked eggs in the mornings (K even gave us a packed breakfast and some water for our early start.) The views of the valley and towards the town from the restaurant are stunning in the morning and the evening, not to be missed. We didn't use the pool but it looked clean.
I would recommend staying here if you are looking for a cheap(ish) stay in the mountains that lets you discover Kandy, the Elephant Orphanage and the Botanical Gardens.
