Wonderful start to our Sri Lanka visit
Everything about this place was perfect. The location, the food, staff, facilities and more. We stayed for two nights as we were moving on but to be honest we wished we had stayed for many more nights!

Well ,what can I say .This is without doubt a wonderful place to stay .My 5 nights was heaven,waking up to majestic sunrises, watching the sun set over the pool superb . The staff are so friendly ,always greeting you with a friendly genuine smile, nothing is too much trouble for them .Wonderful food, but be careful the ' rice and curry ' is huge ,I would say enough for 2 . Pool is soo inviting and you can swim when you like . Beautiful grounds with flowers ,plants and a neat lawn .Rooms are fab,internet good,but if TV is on your agenda ,you will be dissapointed ( time for upgrade,and a few more channels) The wonderful genty and peaceful hotel, with friendly staff, is its winning feature .All foods cooked fresh,so just order,ask how long it will take and sit on terrace and come back at required time. I could not find anything to complain about . Kandy is a 800 ruppee ride away ,but I took a Tuk Tuk visited a few places ,returned,was out for over 5 hours ,for 2500 rupees ,bargin. Many thanks to all staff and I will return next time I am in Sri Lanka .

Stunning views and amazing staff!
Couldn't have hoped for a better start to our holiday in Sri Lanka. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay special. Food was great, particularly the curries. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting kandy.

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.
