The Change is perched on the side of a hill, with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. It's about 30 minutes from the center of Kandy, depending on traffic, and some of the local tuk-tuk drivers who are committed to supporting other establishments closer to town will moan about this. But don't let that deter you. Anura and his staff...

The owner of this hotel makes a stay a warm and comfortable experience. He is a kind and thoughtful person as well as an excellent cook. It is high in the hills around Kandy so a place to stay and enjoy the views, not to walk to other restaurants, sights. It is a restful, comfortable place to arrive back at,...

We stayed on the third floor. The view from the balcony allowed us to see far away mountains, and on each floor there is a kind of public balcony that gives you an incredible view. The food was good and the service was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The place is very clean and orderly. It's removed...

Very accomodating and welcoming. They do not have a lift so the staff have to help us carry our heavy luggage bags to third floor. Room has...

There is a lot to like about this hotel. Nestled on the outskirts of Kandy its rooms have sweeping views of the valley, an ever changing vista throughout the day. The eclectic mix of colours bring a sense of style to the place and the rooms are spotlessly clean. We arrived early and I had expected we would be able...

Had a fantastic time at this place. The manager was so kind and made sure we were well looked after in getting to and from the city centre and ensured we got good and honest drivers to take us to places. On the first night we arrived later than anticipated but the manager organised a wonderfully cooked meal for us...

I fell extremely sick whilst my stay at this hotel, NOT FROM THIS HOTEL. The manager looked after me as if I was one of his own children checking my temperature and genuinely caring about me. We had only booked to stay there for 1 night however we had to push it to 3 nights as I was too sick...

A beautiful villa with nicely decorated rooms. All done by the owner himself, and the result is top. Good bathroom with a hot shower and you have great views from your balcony. The usual breakfast (toast with marmalade and omelet) but made with care and accompanied by a freshly made smoothie. Dinner was also good. Very friendly and hospitable staff....
