We only stayed at cinnamon citadel for one night and we were extremely impressed. The public areas are bright and airy with a lovely view of the large pool and the river. The rooms themselves are nice and spacious with all the standard amenities. In the evening it was lovely to wander down to the river and watch all the bats flying from their roosting spots in Kandy.
The best part of our stay was the food, which was excellent. We opted for the a la carte menu at Cafe C rather than the buffet. I went for the local lake fish main on the specials which was actually one of the best dishes I had the whole trip. Furthermore it was only 750 rupees which was complete bargain! However I would avoid the puddings which were rather sub standard (buffet style over-gelatinous puddings).
We had to leave early in the morning and the staff organised a very good packed breakfast.
Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel!
