I have a feeling that we may have stayed in the older wing of the hotel as, much as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the room wasn't that big for four people. However, we loved the hotel anyway, as the staff were great, the pool really refreshing after a day's sightseeing, and we loved the parade of monkeys that climbed...

Great location and a beautiful hotel! Lovely food with a great buffet for dinner and breakfast. View over the city is excellent too. Alcohol quite expensive but this was to be expected. Rooms are basic but clean.

This hotel located above the Kandy lake gives excellent views, especially from the Royal Pavilion wing. The rooms are specious and clean. The hotel facilities need a bit of maintenance. The restaurant has a lovely buffet spread. The pool looked clean and inviting though I did not use it. The staff was friendly and exceptionally helpful. Only drawback is the...

This hotel falls within the "Standard range" but seriously offers a luxury feel. The service was wonderful, everyone smiling and very interactive. We had a couple great discussions with a few staff members and hearing their excitement of us (& others) visiting their country. The breakfast range was good & service wonderful. Location is within 10-20mins to the main town,...
