We stayed here for 2 night and had a very nice time. Our room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Breakfast was pleasant and I enjoyed the complimentary biscuits they left in our room each day. It is in a good location and a great place to explore Kandy by foot. The view from the restaurant is also nice.

The staff was very friendly and the room was clean. But there was a bad smell coming from the aircon. The pool was nice and clean. The food in the restaurant was too expensive. We would stay here again but not for the food.

We only stayed one night here after getting a taxi from Habarana. We were then getting the train the next day to Nuwara Eliya so wanted a hotel close to the station. This was ideally placed. Kandy is a busy city and the hotel is on the main road however the room was quiet. It was quite small but perhaps to be expected for a city hotel. It had everything we needed for a quick stopover. We walked to both the Temple of the Tooth and Kandy Lake. Breakfast was good, good choice and the restaurant has a view over Kandy. Excellent service. The staff also went to the trouble of getting us a cheaper tuk-tuk through the app which was very helpful.

What we liked was the high quality of the room: very good beds, good airco, large room, splendid bathroom. We had the most luxury room of the lot, still at a reasonable price. Location has two sides: the street is unattractive and very noisy, but the rooms have good soundisolation. On the other hand, its very central so you can easily walk around. We had one time diner in the hotel and that was not good. Considering you are so close to "Buono", where you can eat delicioso, that's definitely a better choice.

THE most SUPERB Hotel in Kandy imho. Owned by the DELIGHTFUL Severanithne Family, it can I believe NOT be faulted! The views from some of the rooms are GLORIOUS ~ out over the magical Kandyan Hills and down on to a lively + fascinating Street that leads into Central Kandy. The immaculate food served with love in the 7th Floor Roof top Restaurant is TOTALLY delicious + ALL the Staff are beautiful Gems! We will be back next year! The roof top pool is also WONDERFUL!
