This charming hotel is hidden away out of town in the most beautiful location. The owner, udayaGelioya, is incredibly helpful. We stayed 3 nights and asked him what we should see. UdayaGelioya suggested an evening visit to Kandy to see a cultural show and the temple. He arranged the tuk tuk and we enjoyed our trip but were very pleased...

Driving to the hotel, we tried to adjust our expectations given the approach through a village-like area, but we were completely blown away upon our arrival! The hotel is like a very lovingly built home..the rooms are simple but clean, and the pool is sometimes too cold to swim in, but the feeling of being treated like both family and...

We stayed for 2 nights whilst on a weeks tour of Sri Lanka. Situated about half an hour or so from a Kandy depending on traffic. The actual location is located up in the hills away from the traffic and bustle of Kandy itself. The welcome was excellent as mentioned in other reviews and our room was very clean and...

We had a very pleasant 3 nights stay at the Elegant Hotel. It was the service that needs to be highlighted here: very attentive and friendly, yet modest. We were greeted with a flower necklace and a fresh juice. The breakfast was arranged in a lovely way and the best we have enjoyed during our whole journey (fruit salad, fresh...

This hotel is very lovely and has a great athmosphere. Everything is absolutely clean and tidy. Since we were there in the off season, we were the only guests. In the beginning it gave us a strange feeling, that so many people - including the owner - just worked for us. They all did a perfect job! They fulfill every...

The hotel was owned by someone whom had worked in Hotels in Dubai and you could tell. The attention to detail was high, which generally lacks in Sri Lanka. The petals on the breakfast table and the flowers which greeted you as you came in. Plus the refreshing cooling towels to wipe your hands as you arrive and the welcome...

We had two rooms in this small hotel both of which had tremendous views of the surrounding hills and mountains, one faced the east and the other west so we were able to see the sunrise and set during our stay, well worth getting up early for.
