Located very close to Kandy Lake but away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Room was very clean, though the bed was a wee bit uncomfortable. Rooftop restaurant is fantastic. Pool is located right at the front steps of the hotel but was very refreshing after a long, hot walk around Kandy Lake. Staff were absolutely fantastic,... More

The room was adequate, probably about a rating of 3, but the hotel was so very friendly and helpful and the location so central that I'm giving it 4. Kandy was packed for the Perahera festival and we expected the hotels might be just packing people in and rushed off their feet, but we were overwhelmed with how nice everyone... More

Hotel is nice and loacted close to the Kandy lake. We booked the deluxe suits. The room was fine, however the a/c was not working. The staff was friendly but not really service orientated. The food was fine but very small. Price- vs. Performance not satisfying. The W-LAN was not really working.

Me and my friend stayed at the Kandy View hotel last week. The rooms are basic but clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. They arranged a budget car for us to take us to our next destination and advised us on what we should pay for tuk tuks, etc during our time in Kandy. They also gave us a... More

We stayed in Kandy view for the Parahera festival and found the staff extremely friendly and willing to go out of their way to help with anything you need. The room was decent enough and the food was fantastic with the chef cooking in front of you.

Spent a week at the Kandy View Hotel. The staff were really very helpful, warm and welcoming, especially to our 8-year old son - it's so true that Sri Lankans are brilliant with kids. We had a junior suite so had the additional bonus of a large living space separate to the bedroom. This was really handy as we were... More

The staff are lovely and very helpful. Good breakfast and excellent views from upstairs. An easy walk to Kandy Lake and you can be at the temple in 20 mins. I had a downstairs room and it did seem and smell a bit damp. Otherwise it was typical Sri Lankan standard for this type of hotel.
