Had a great stay at the Citadel and regretted it had to be only a day. Ultra clean room, they have taken lot of precautions , sealed fresh towels, toiletries, tea and coffee in zip locked bags, hand sanitizer in the room and plenty more in common areas. Sanitized surfaces, pens etc., One feels safer. Superb food and in a very clean restaurant , a buffet for all three meals ( we expected a la carte/set menu given the low occupancy)served by a very friendly chef and a staff. Very pleasant stay indeed and would do it again asap.

A beutifully landscaped garden adjacent to Mahavaly river with friendly staff and clean rooms. Delicious food and beverages along with calming atmosphere. An ideal place to take break in Kandy. Sri dalada maligawa within 20 minute reach.
