Have stayed here a couple of times and each and every time the effective and friendly service of the staff has been above and beyond the expectation. The rooms are pretty basic but nice and clean. Most of the rooms may have a hill view and in the night it looks fantastic with all the lights. The restaurant is at... More

Room was clean and had great views. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Restaurant was great service, food and prices. Pool available at sister hotel a couple of doors down. You could hear noise when in the lobby but I never heard a thing once in the room.

Stayed 2 nights. Good food at the restaurant for breakfast and meals are reasonably priced as are drinks. Funky atmosphere and cool furniture/artwork. Clean and friendly service. Pool available at a sister hotel a few doors down.

I did not pay for this hotel so I am not sure about its price. The room is very basic but my main problem why I gave two stars is the bathroom. There was barely water coming out of the shower, hot water rarely came out, slippery floors, rust and half broken tiles, long hairs all over (not mine). Another... More

We had lunch here on the way in to Kandy. Great selection available. It's 1300lkr pp and drinks cost around 4500+. Both local and non local foods on offer. The toilets were relatively clean. Open balcony area which was nice but can get hot if the sun is out. It's also a hotel but judging by the road it's on,... More

We stayed here for 2 days about a week ago. Although said to be in Kandy, it's actually about 3km from Kandy, which can take you easily 20 minutes to reach. It's squeezed between a busy road on one side and a even busier road+traintrack on the other. The food (buffet-style) o.k. lot of variety, but could be better. Breakfasts... More

As we had been travelling for several hours, our driver took us to this restaurant for lunch. It was already busy when we arrived, and we waited several minutes before the table to which we were allocated was cleared of dirty plates. The lunch that we had was not expensive at 1300SLR per person but was, at best, only mediocre.... More

Located on the Kandy-Peradeniya road, this hotel has all the facilities. The staff is good and helpful. There's a great arts and craft center in the same building and has variety of traditional Sri Lankan hand crafts.

Our tuk tuk driver dropped us here for lunch and it turned out to be possibly the worst restaurant experience of my life. We should have turned around as soon as we saw the hordes of tour buses parked outside. Indeed, the place was full of huge tour groups, and had the inflated prices to match. The restaurant is on...
