Rooms look abit different than from the hotel website. Needs some upgrading works. Overall it was still still clean and a pleasant night stay. Best part is the buffet dinner and breakfast that they provided. Wide range of choices. One down side is that the ac is centralized and it gets really really cold at night and the blankets they...

Steep hill up to hotel. Lovely hotel when you are there and great views. Small bedroom with little space for clothes, but nicely done. Food good. Nice staff. A bit of a walk down into Kandy, but it is pleasant with monkeys playing around for most of the route.

We stayed for one night in February 2017 and had dinner and breakfast here as part of our room rate. The hotel is a good standard and caters mainly for tourists but it was extremely busy in the evening and the service was slower than we had experienced in other hotels. Breakfast and Dinner were buffet with a good selection....

We have just stayed at Thilanka hotel for two nights. One of our favorite hotels with exceptionally good service. The location is good for a few days in Kandy close to the main attractions. The hotel has a nice pool and bar area. Rooms are good and clean.

Up on a hill overlooking Kandy, this hotel offer great views of the countryside and the town centre. Rooms were spacious, clean with a nice balcony. Great breakfast. Wifi only in lobby and the pool area. Staff very attentive. Hotel is a little older and shows in a few places.

Old entrance / reception with annexes added.. Room opened onto a balcony with good views over Kandy since we were on a hillside. Only disappointment with the balcony was the warning of monkeys. Had to keep locked if not outside. Large room with safe but wifi accessed at reception - not a problem. Buffet meal but the best I'd had...

Stayed here whilst on a tour of the island. Great rooms, make sure you ask for a view when booking. Highly recommend the hotel, it's right in the centre of Kandy. Food is buffet style and very varied with good service. Staff are smart and helpful. Perfect for a short stay in the second capital!

Only stayed one night, and unfortunately it was pouring rain, but the hotel was great, with large rooms and excellent views over Kandy and the river. The pool etc. looked very nice as well. Had the buffet for dinner and breakfast and both were pretty good.
