Slightly dated hotel with good pool and nice staff
Pool, staff, the view
A good location during Esala Perahera - only a 10 minute walk to town but far enough away to not be too disturbed! Nice staff, a good pool, and a nice buffet dinner

Long gone glory
Friendly staff, tastful diner, nice view
The appearence of this hotel is nice, with spacious clean rooms and a great view over Kandy and the surrounding hills, but in our opinion this hotel is largely overpriced and it lost its promised grandeur a long time ago. The staff is doing its best, but I had the feeling they are rather inexperienced. When we arrived our room smelled strongly after smoke and they suggested to get a spray to make it fresh. The a/c wasn't working and it took an hour before they understood it really was broken and they called a manager (?) who barely spoke English and 'repaired' the thing by opening the ventilation door with a long stick. After that it worked but we still couldn't set the temperature. We chose this hotel for, among others, the pool and the massage available; by arrival it turned out the pool was under construction and there was no masseuse. Breakfast was really expensive and not very tastful (only Sri Lankan coffee for example). The corridors are very noisy and because the badrooms have openings to the corridors, everything that happens in them is audiable in all the other rooms in that part of the hotel. People chatting and shouting, keys turning and doors opening and closing: it kept going until late in the night and it started early in the morning. Also noise from outside (road, trainstation) is audiable. Dinner in the hotel is expensive but the food is excellent. In short: if they would reduce the price this is a fine place to stay, if you don't mind noise in the rooms and things being broken or simply not available.
