Lovely people, breathtaking views
Just spent our first two nights in Sri Lanka here, and it's set a high standard that I fear might not be maintained for the rest of the trip. The owner was so friendly, as were all the staff in fact. The place is in a beautiful location, with incredible views front and back - we were blessed with probably the most breathtaking sunset on our second night, right from the room itself. The infinity pool is big and perfect to cool off in. Food was delicious too, so all in all it's the sort of place that you don't need to leave at all during your stay. Only thing is that it's a good half an hour from Kandy itself, but don't let that put you off - it feels like a world away from the bustle of the city and all the better for it. Definitely heading straight back next time we're in Sri Lanka!

Just stunning!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Elegant Hotel. The staff are really great and went out of their way to accommodate all of our requests. For example, they provided my husband with a seperate room to watch his beloved cricket final. The food was amazing, especially the rice and curry, probably the best I have ever tasted. The location itself is serene, with a beautiful outlook over the surrounding mountains. I highly recommend the Elegant Hotel and cannot thank the staff enough for their generous hospitality.

Good stay but encountered power failure
Stunning view over the hill; nice pool; value for money
The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of kandy city but it's all worth it. Overall a good stay with a stunning view but we encountered power failure on the final night, couldn't even bath as the shower pump relied on electricity. Spoke to the staff but we were simply told that there's nothing they can do about it. The owner came in later and apologized for the inconvenience, he offered to arrange a free dinner for us but he forgot that we were checking out on that day. Well I guess we were just being unlucky on that particular day. We are not very impressed with Sri Lanka as a travel destination (people are always desperate to make some quick bucks off tourist so be very careful when anyone tries to approach u or offer to take photographs for you, don't walk in to any eatery without menu and price display), but the only comfort of the entire trip is that we had a nice place to chill at elegant hotel (minus that power failure night)

Perfect place to stay near Kandy
The Manager Was a total gentleman and the staff were absolutely brillant... The perfect way to settle into Sri Lanka after arriving off the plane... Merits staying two or three nights and going for local walks or visitons the local temples... Thank you to all at the excellent Elegant Hotel... J&dm McBonvin
