I was introduced to queens by Mr. Mahesh Dissanayake the front office manager of queens, He navigated us from the inception of a call to the tracks of this legendary city hotel. Along with a kandyan reception that we received they accompanied us to the queen's suit and the experience to date remains a nostology to my family and especially to my little daughter. Its the only hotel situated two steps away of the dalada temple. The food was really great at room dinning and we enjoyed the colonial service that's so unique to queens. staff including the resident manager touched our souls to make us feel home. thank you soo much, a very special thanks to Mahesh for the inspirations you set to made us feel a reality at sight..

Despite being in need of a refurbishment our stay at the Queens was a lovely opportunity to step back in time at this beautiful colonial building with period furniture, grand staircase and over 100 year old lift. Our junior suite was enormous with large, deep bath tub and 3 different balconies. The staff were lovely, breakfast included and OK, a good and reasonable taxi service was available and the location is perfect opposite the lake and Temple of the Tooth and central for shops and other bars, cafes & restaurants.
