Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A woderful located Hotel outside from Kandy, with an excellent service and delicious food. A well-being place. Very unfortunate that we only had one night. The outdoor pool area and the roof terrace are more than inviting. We would gladly choose this hotel again at any time.

Great service in a serene hill top setting. Multiple places to sit and relax. Good facilities including the dining room views and service. Thanks for the special service by Lahiru and Nalinda. Cool wind felt good after a hot day of sightseeing.

Stunning views, great restaurant for dinner (buffet and a la carte options) and breakfast with a chef to make omelettes and dinner dishes to order and lovely pool. As I don’t like heights I was worried about the drive to the hotel having read the reviews but it was absolutely fine for a car, good road the whole way and no sheer drops. Best laundry service of our trip!

Got a really good deal through a booking.com partner and another one we had booked had fallen through so I was a bit nervous about our booking being valid when we turned up but I needn’t have. From start to finish the staff were great and every aspect of our stay was fantastic. From our beautiful suite with the biggest shower area I’ve ever seen in my life, to the gorgeous dinner and beautiful breakfast on the terrace with stunning views. The pool area is also lovely and we spent a relaxing couple of ours there. Although it’s out of town, getting tuk tuks to and from is easy and inexpensive

This resort rocks. The view is outstanding as it is located at a high point in the city. The rooms are neat and clean. The staff are incredibly friendly and willing to assist you with any issue. Gobi who works at housekeeping was an absolute gem. He went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable in my room. I really was impressed with the hospitality of this hotel. If you’re ever in Kandy, book with them. You won’t regret it. The only regret I had was that I had to move on to the next city so I did not get a chance to thoroughly enjoy their services.

Fantastic views, great service, courteous staff and lovely rooms. Fox Kandy is all of these and more. Loved every minute of stay here. If you are a vegetarian like me then you will have limited options but those are good enough for a day or two.

Was delighted when we drove to the hilltop resort over looking the valley, room wasn’t quite ready but I was early and was offered tea. Had a look at the restaurant before heading to explore the nearby town, they didn’t have my favourite tipple but not to worry. Rooms were well laid out and very clean. After an evening’s sightseeing showered before dinner and manager told me he had my preference in the fridge!! Now that’s service! Food and staff were excellent and I was delighted I found this hotel.

This is one of the most beautiful places we have stayed at, with lovely views, a lovely compound and very comfortable rooms. We stayed in the Suite which was spacious and comfortable. Our check-in experience was very nice, with very delicious tea served to us. Unfortunately, the food we had here was the worst we experienced in the whole of Sri Lanka. The buffet breakfasts and dinner consisted of buffet items that were so bad they were sometimes inedible. Only the live stations provided food that was decent. Also the coffee that they provided for breakfast was the worst thing I've ever tasted in my life. We had to tell them to take it away and give us hot water so we could use instant coffee sachets instead. There is no gym and spa at this hotel - we had to go out for these.

We thought the Fox Kandy was our favorite lodging while we were in Sri Lanka. It does take a bit of effort to get up to the resort, but your journey will be rewarded. We had a second floor room that looked over the forest. It was beautiful sitting in the porch watching the birds flying in and out of the trees and then watching the thunderstorm that came over. The pool was lovely and the restaurant provided us with a very tasty dinner and breakfast. We had a wonderful stay at Fox Kandy.
