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.

We can't hesitate to recommend this charming hotel with its lovely staff, cute pool and tasty cuisine. Dinner on the terrace is very pleasant. All very clean. Not so far to the center by tuktuk. The bed is so comfortable that it's hard to get out of bed. Go for it!

Good location not far from city centre. A haven of peace and quiet after the hurly burly and heat of Kandy, with a very welcome pool. Light and airy with elegant furnishings and very comfortable and spacious bedrooms. Excellent food and most attentive service. Roof terrace great for dinner. Ideal for couples or small groups.

From the moment we arrived we were very well looked after by Umesh and his team. Clove Villa is a haven of tranquility in a bustling city. Our large room was very comfortable and the cleaning and turn down services were impeccable. Umesh tailored our menus to all the things we like best both at dinner and breakfast. After 4 nights of pampering we were sad to leave.

We spent a lovely night at Clove Villa whilst travelling through Kandy. We had a a very large room beautifully presented with very chic décor and a lovely bathroom overlooking the pool. We were provided with excellent service by Umesh assisted by Yohan. We had wonderful food sitting on the balcony listening to the frogs in the pond below and were delighted to be presented with a surprise birthday cake for my special celebration which was a delightful touch and delicious too.

Lovely stay at Clove Villa, super room with jacuzzi, stayed for 2 nights, service was impeccable from our waiter Danushka. The fresh fruit and curd followed by bacon and eggs for breakfast was delicious and our evening meal was also excellent. The pool was also lovely for a morning swim.

We stayed at Clove Villas for 2 nights during a 3 week tour of Sri Lanka. The quirky decor and furniture were unusual, but still classy. The food was great, with the chef catering to individual preferences & tastes, and offering a choice of local dishes and more Western options. But the standout was the staff - expertly attentive without intruding, helpful with suggestions and information about the area, incredibly flexible fitting in with us with pleasure, and charming and polite and interested in us. If you get the chance to go, do it!

My wife and I stayed here as part of a tour around Sri Lanka on our honeymoon. It's a really lovely boutique hotel with incredible, attentive staff. We arrived thinking it was a little out of the way but it was incredibly peaceful there and a TukTuk into town was only 10mins and about $3. We stayed 3 nights and was the perfect base to explore Kandy and surrounding areas (we did a day trip up to Sigiriya and Dumbella from here). Umesh and Danushka were brlliant, so helpful. DEFINITELY eat here and tell them early enough in the day to bag yourself the one table on the balcony if you can. We ate in the restaurant area which isn't the best environment but the food more than makes up for it. We had a Sri Lankan curry and a Butter Chicken which come with so many sides it's impossible to finish but honestly the best food you can find in Kandy and in the top meals we had over 3 weeks. We ate at the Hideout and Slightly Chillled Bar and a Japanese place (all top rated in the area) and the food was infinitely better. Shame it's overlooked as a destination. Thanks again for a lovely stay team!

I stayed here on Xmas Eve with my Fiancé and parents. The staff had arranged a Carol Concert performed by a local Ladies Choir and a special Xmas Eve dinner which was a nice touch. We arrived about 30mins late and they still waited for us. The dinner consisted of a set menu with 3-4 options for main courses and 1-2 options for starters and deserts. The rooms are large and clean. The entire place is beautifully decorated. The staff were friendly and attentive but not overbearing. We had to leave very early in the morning. The staff arranged a packed breakfast for us and were up early to assist us with our luggage. I would certainly stay here again if I was visiting Kandy.

This is a superb hotel - we only wish we had stayed longer. The two guys who ran it - one who was also the chef - were the best hosts. We had a gorgeously decorated room and the best meal we have had in all our travels in Sri Lanka - including Grandma's recipe aubergines - served with warmth and humour. The place is small, very comfortable and excellently equipped. We also played a round of pool on the mezzanine which made our night. Super recommended for a stay in Kandy.
