Pur driver actually recommended this to us, after we had suggested staying in Kandy centre. He took us up into what seemed like the furthest part of the hills. It was so lovely. Staff are all very attentive and accommodating and the fish curry is outstanding. If you want a comfortable bed for a great price then definitely go here....

Stayed at this lovely little hotel during my first trip to Sri Lanka in 2013, and again this week, and it just keeps getting better. The owner has added 4 new rooms and a swimming pool. All of the rooms have balconies overlooking the city and the swimming pool, as well, has great views of the hills surrounding the city....

Travelling solo round Sri Lanka just now. Had this hotel arranged for me by a tour guide. I'll be honest, only real drawback of the hotel is finding it! It's up a small, windy road that has not been tarmac'd - so be prepared to test the car suspension when heading from Kandy city. Once you are there though it's...

Stayed here one night as part of 7 day tour of Sri Lanka. Very friendly staff and great food. Nice views from the room. No tv in the room and you may need to ask for extra blanket. Only downside is the location- you'll need a car or driver who is confident with winding hills!

An over all impression of this hotel was average. but once you enter the room specially the Gallery the view is mesmerizing. You can view srilanka's Highest peak. A lush green mountain range and overall look of the surroundings. Bad thing is they do not offer Tea pot with room booking. And buying one cup of tea costs you Rs....
