Reviewed 23 October 2015

This hotel is some way from Kandy city centre. There is a courtesy bus available at set hours. This can be difficult for some. Tuk Tuk and Taxi are difficult to engage at the hotel site as it is a gated community. No shops or street food within walking distance. Staff are friendly and attentive. Breakfast is very good and...

Stayed there for 1 night - got a great discount as we booked pretty much at the last minute. After spending several nights in cabanas/bungalows/chalets with basic amenities (and a lot of bugs), it was kind of nice to get back to the comfort of a 'normal' hotel room. The good: - rooms are very nice: spacious and well designed,...

I stayed with friends at the Topaz for a night in early September 2015. As such there is nothing too great or something to write home about the hotel. Its an average 2.5 to 3 star hotel that offers clean rooms and decent service. There is free Wi-Fi offered in the rooms. The restaurant on the 2nd floor offers buffet...

The hotel is on the hilltop. The rooms were renovated. The view at the top is great. The food is also good. But little far from the city. Rooms were good with nice views. Outside is good with a nice pool. Overall hotel was average.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Topaz was built in 1976 and fashioned after a much loved gem stone found in Sri Lanka. Considering its situation in the hill capital of Kandy, the last royal stronghold in the country, Hotel Topaz is considered the jewel in the crown of Kandy.Nestled amidst lush tropical greenery, surrounded by the distinctive Knuckles Mountain range and Bible Rock, enveloped in the cool winds blowing through the mountains, Hotel Topaz offers something for everyone.The short distance away from the city centre itself, lends the hotel and its guests maximum accessibility no matter what the choice of activity is. However Hotel Topaz offers guests a tranquil setting and the option of exploring the city’s rich heritage in style and comfort.The warm and personal service serves to truly bring out the widely famed Sri Lankan hospitality. Guests at Hotel Topaz are made to feel at home, and explore the surrounding gardens or have a cocktail or high-tea on our famous rooftop terrace with its 360 degree view of the city and its hills. ... more   less
