Kandyan Reach Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Kurunegala
Reviewed 16 November 2013

Located right heart of town , close access to railway station and many other markets. Service and hotel rooms are OK, food is not that great but manageable. I do not expect any other better hotel than this in Kurunegala. Overall, its comfortable and value for money.

Well, I almost dropped the reservation when a staff person Harshini responded to me saying "what is this skoosh,that they do not know anything about skoosh.com" and money already being deducted from my account. After a few email transactions and phone conversations we checked in. The day we checked out Marketing Manager asked me whether they'd get paid. Finally, it appeared there is a link with Aitken Spence Tours and all's well at the end.
As for the hotel; well located, extremely friendly staff except Harshini, well experienced chef and associated staff with an efficient work ethics and manners. Good portions in meals with room service. Spacious rooms with ensuites. Talking about ensuites, we believe that ensuites can be upgraded with good fittings as the present fittings are bit corroded with water inhibitors. An exhaust fan is highly useful to get rid of steam and vapour.
All and all we had a wonderful time with efficient, friendly and well mannered staff. Will return and highly recommend who wants visit Kurunegala.

Kandyan reach Hotel is barely a kilometre away from the heart of Kurunegala town and a few hundred meters away from the Railway Station.
Rooms are comfortable. the staff are friendly and good.
The F & B Manager is always around and will be ready to help you to select your choice of food.
He is a product of the Ceylon Hotel School and knows what he is doing.

Room Tip: Get the help of the Front Office Manager and he will allocate the best available room.

Stayed for four nights at this place. A basic hotel with spacious rooms and good conferencing facility. Saw many wedding parties during my stay. Room is huge as also the wash room. The plastic curtain was small and could not cover the shower space. definitely the wash room needs to be refurbished. For such a huge room, there was the tiniest of TVs. SPA is non-functional. The conferencing facilities were excellent. The Restaurant manager gave so much attention to us that compensated for the negatives at this place.

For a 1 star hotel this is a good place to stay. The room was airy with the air con. Bed did the job and the bathroom had a good shower, sink and loo! The staff were very friendly. We stayed for 8 nights while visiting the local area and didn't have a single complaint. It isn't 5 star luxury. It's a basic comfy place to stay. Would stay again. L n A

Room Tip: We requested a room overlooking the pool as this is away from the road.

A reasonable hotel, this. Right beside the main road from Colombo to Dambulla, so a convenient stopover. We spent one night B+B there. The room was spacious and large with an adequate wet room attached and a private balcony facing in towards a central courtyard so was quiet. The a/c wasn't however as it sounded like there was something loose inside, we had to turn it off to sleep. It would be interesting to know if the management followed up our report as by then we were moving on. I wasn't confident in this respect as it all seemed a little laid back! There is a large pool that looked as if it could be quite nice but as it was undergoing maintenance at the time we couldn't use it. The breakfast choice was limited but sufficient, we liked the curd and treacle. Fresh fruit juice is available but at extra cost. In conclusion the Kandyan Reach is OK for an overnight stop or if you have business in the area.

I stayed one night and the rooms were ok but the staff were not friendly and were not very customer service. Most staff greeted me but no smile or seems just following instructions. The restuarent was very basic and the choice for the breakfast buffett was very ordinary. The cup of tee was very poor quality.

Room Tip: Make sure it has A/C and its a non smoking room if not a smoker. Back rooms are quieter
