We stayed at the Plantation Hotel during our road trip to Kandy. we stayed there one night. The hotel situated by Kalani river, the location is good. We found this hotel online and the photos we saw in their website was looking good. however, it was a completely misleading situation. We were offered a room facing the river but to get there you have to pass very old looking two kitchens and very dirty walking path. when we entered to the room it was not what we imagine. The bathroom is very smelly and there is no air circulation. The person who took us to the room did not explained well about the room and the hotel as a result we had to spend time to find light switches/remote control/ ect before we leave for the lunch.
The room is itself very old and dirty looking. Cushions and armchair should be cleaned. food was horrible and very dry. If you need any room service you have to call them using your mobile or have to walk to the reception through kitchen and the dirty path.
We arranged rafting from the hotel but if you go out you can find it cheaper than the hotel. Hotel staff is not friendly but very curious to know whats happening in the inside of the room. If you are going with young girls or as a couple, you should not allow any room service to inside of your room and keep your doors locked properly.
Defiantly not recommending to go there. You can find some other decent place to stay that value what you pay for.
I see that they need good operational manager and a renovation.
