Ideal location only

The restaurant was terrible at this hotel. We tried 3 times to eat there and each time the restaurant failed to deliver the food or it arrived with flies swarming. Breakfast was extremely basic and again swarmed by flies
Naadira K. Couples South Africa, February 15, 2015
Great value for money

The view from the delux room and the location
7
The room was clean and the workers very helpful although they did not always understand English. It was great value for money and we were quite impressed coming from Centara Ceysands which was double the price and not much more great. The delux room is 50 percent glass and the view is breathtaking. Breakfast was not great, flies everywhere and not very hygienic. Perfect for a one night elephant experience

location, elephants, low cost

Arrived at night and we were concerned about security. There is one staff member on duty. He is the front desk, operator, bellman, security guard, room service, cook, and maintenance. Understaffing at night is a problem. The entire hotel just barely meets the minimum requirements to be considered a hotel. All furniture is very old and in poor condition. In the rooms, only a bedsheet is provided, blankets not available. In the bathrooms, a few regular towels, no toothpaste, shampoo etc, no hand towels. The locks on the doors are every old and not secure, we moved furniture and luggage in front of the door for added security. There is no elevator. Hot water was only available after we ran the tap open for about 25 minutes. We used a major tour company as our driver, so they know nearly every hotel in Kandy. They did not know this hotel and had never been to it. They did know every other hotel on our trip. Breakfast- given 3 options only, food is OK. Glasses were not washed after use, but just rinsed. We were concerned about cleanliness after seeing that. The hotel manager let us check out early and refunded our payment for 2 more nights, which we are very thankful for. Overall, this is a very budget hotel- the price is low but you get very little other than a bare basic room with no amenities.

Our stay was good. There is are room for improvement. The hotel rooms show a little bit wear ant tear. This needs to be attended. Entrance and the parking area too need attention.

This alleged 3 star hotel does not rate at all! The staff are not able to communicate effectively, rooms were old and shabby and the restaurant's food, service and quality was awful!! For the cost, this place was not value for money!

Wonderful location to see elephant bath

Price location
7.7
The location should be the best for elephant bath, you can close to see they have a bath and the experience is too difficult to forget! But the hotel should make a smart and clear guidance in the street so we can find it easilier, and I need to complained that why there is no hair dryer in the room but agoda show that they have
Padmanabha R. Groups India, August 21, 2014
Good Stay!!

Location, Cleanliness and Staff cooperation
8.3
The hotel is ideally located on the bank of river. You can enjoy the flow of river/stream thoroughly. You can watch elephant bathing in water from very near. Only problem is that it neither nearer to Kandy nor to Nuwara Eliya
