We arrived to Kandy after a long drive and we were pleased with the appearance of the hotel and the gorgeous landscaping and views. The drive up the mountain to the hotel is picturesque and, though remote, we enjoyed being in the mountains. Unfortunately, the hotel seems to operate as a "large tour group" hotel and not a boutique hotel...

Best things about this hotel are the pool and terrace (complete with table tennis) and fantastic views. It is let down by the poor quality food and, during our stay at least, the fact that noise carries around the hotel when there are particularly noisy guests/large groups. These two issues really undermined our stay which was a shame as it...

High expectations as we arrived to a wonderful view and very friendly staff but that soon turned to disappointment as we were shown our room. Offered an "upgrade" to a suite (just a regular room with a small sitting area) was a surprise as we required 3 separate beds. However, the 3 beds weren't provided, they then wanted an extra...

Spent two nights here, way up in the hills above the town, for our 10th anniversary, with our son and his girlfriend, and we got upgraded on arrival to the bungalow, which is a short walk/shuttle bus down from the main hotel. Not sure if it was the hotel or our travel company that arranged the upgrade, but it was...
