A big well done to all staff. Presentation for the buffet was lovely, with loaded green salad, caesar salad, bread basket (the loaf was bread heaven) and antipasto platter. Main dishes...

A lovely hotel in a beautiful location by the river. The room was specious, clean and well maintained. The bathroom clean and well serviced. The buffets are excellent with a wide spread of western and eastern food. The location is quiet and away from the busy Kandy town centre. Highly recommended for long or short stays.

We arrived in Kandy after three magical days at the Villuyana hotel in Dambulla. Other travelers had described this hotel as colonial and charming, I could see neither. It's a place that would need a serious lifting, the bedrooms have carpets around the beds which look not so clean, nor does the rest. The standard room is of good size...
