Stunning

The view, the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness

This hotel is situated on a hill about 12km outside of Kandy but that really didnt matter to us and it provided a perfect place to explore the hill region. The hotel owner is amazing. So helpful, friendly and is very informed about the area and the best places to see and things to do. The view from the hotel is simply stunning with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The rooms are apacious, clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. There is also the added bonus of a pool which is perfect after a day of exploring. Highly recommend anyone to stay here....we will definitely be back.

Wonderful stay. We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed more. The owner really knows how to address the little details that make guests feel comfortable, pampered, and well taken care of. Highly recommend Elegant Hotel.

Our stay at Elegant Hotel was wonderful. This small boutique hotel was a real gem. Overall, the best hotel we stayed at. Delightful staff front & back of house. The owner - manager, well trained and experienced in hospitality, was most hospitable. Aesthetically appealing with lovely interior design & infinity edge pool in garden overlooking hills of Kandy. Chef produced excellent Sri Lankan breakfasts & dinners which could be eaten on verandah with a view or candlelit in garden by the pool, overlooking Kandy hills. Any hint of something not on the menu appeared the next day. Our driver who hadn't been there before was very happy, rating it the best of his stays during our trip. Although it's a 30 minute drive from Kandy, a tuk-tuk is readily available if required & there's a short walk to an interesting temple nearby. Sunsets viewed from spacious verandah off the rooms are a bonus. Would definitely stay there again.

Stunning views but little far from Kandy

Friendliness of staff. One of the best curries we ever had.

The Elegant Hotel offers stunning views from the terraces and the nature around is beautiful, however it is 30 min away from Kandy by tuk tuk and there is literally nothing around the hotel itself, eg if you want to step out for a drink or dinner in the evenings. I would recommend this hotel for somebody who enjoys peaceful ambiance but not for the purpose of Kandy sightseeing, actually it was too lonely for our taste. One of the best curries we had in Sri Lanka, great attention and friendliness of staff. Nice pool but no sun in the afternoon hours. Room decor ok but clean. Large terrace. They do everything possible to make their guests happy. Wouldn't rate this hotel as a 4 star hotel though, it's rather a b&b or guest house.

Peaceful setting

Garden, swimming pool, surroundings for hiking
9.3
I enjoyed my seven nights at the Elegant Hotel. Staff great and very helpful and service minded. It is 12 km outside Kandy and no other restaurants are close by, which did not give me a problem, as the restaurant at Elegant Hotel had good choices for food and drinks. I loved to hike in the area, which is not at all touristic. However, mainly a hotel for those, who seek a quiet place with beautiful garden and view, as well as a very well maintained swimming pool.

in no way elegant

clean, decent local food

Would not recommend. Photos not representative of the rooms at this property, bugs everywhere, very basic room worthy if two stars at best. Staff informed us on checkout that they take cash only even though they take credit cards. Being that they are 45+ minutes from kandy this was not great news. Our driver had to front us cash. Other negative -- the condition of the roads to the hotel is not suitable for a Prius, the main charter car here in Sri Lanka. Food was the one redeeming quality.
