That's what we said when we came to this hotel after 3 other that were complete disaster. Huge room, amazing view, good choice of TV programs, fantastic pool, impeccably behaving staff ... If there is something to be changed for better - I'd suggest a few more western dishes.

Room Tip: River view.

Sayed at this property for 1 night on my 8 day tour to Srilanka. The rooms were modern and very well done up overlooking the river and forest. The location was simply superb with the pool facing the forest, though a bit away from kandy city.

The swimming pool was very good.

Rooms were very spacious and the staff was very helpful.

We stayed at this hotel for just one night when travelling down from Habarana and it was a brilliantly, modern hotel and in a great location for us to visit Kandy. Unfortunately due to the heavy rain we didn't get to enjoy the amazing pool and riverside views as much as we would have liked, but the hotel itself was spacious, modern and of an excellent standard. The room was very slick and modern and the food was also of a very high standard.

Had a very pleasant 2 nights here. Nice room overlooking the pool and river beyond from our balcony. There was everything in the room that one could need and it was well appointed. Food was excellent both at breakfast and dinner and there was lots of choice for a vegetarian.

We stayed in this hotel when it was Chaaya Citadel (I understand that it underwent some renovation recently). Its a nice hotel and overlooks a river and forest area. We stayed overnight during our stay(there is so much to explore in Srilanka, we spent every night at a different place :)

Rooms: Our room was small but cozy. It had a balcony which overlooked the river. The river itself was not very clean though. We were on our honeymoon and the staff had kept few balloons in our room which was nice.

Restaurant: Restaurant was nice. However, food itself was quite ordinary. We being vegetarians had a tough time everywhere in Srilanka. Its very difficult to find veg food there.

There was nothing extraordinary about the place and we might want to explore other hotels if we happen to visit Kandy again!

A really great hotel which will make your stay perfect! Nice breakfast area - great to eat together with squirels. Very nice lobby overlooking to forest and river. Live music piano day time and sax evening time. Staff recognize you and learn your name from the day one. Nice experience from A to Z!

This hotel has had a great renovation and is now surely the best mid range hotel in the Kandy and highlands area. For the independent traveller it is a bit heavy with tour groups but this does not detract from the high level of room quality and excellent buffet selection. As with my last trip twenty odd years ago, the sight of squadrons of flying foxes darkening the sky twice a day, is really beautiful. Staff are excellent and the public areas are enticing. Although I did not check first hand, my driver said the sleeping and eating provided for them were not great.
