Nice rooms, friendly staff

French doors in the rooms, large room, shower
Pleasant. Nice view but white unefficient blinds and radio turned on early in the hallways. Friendly staff but slow wifi. Good view from the grills but not so much restaurant or anything around. Should preffer a touktouk to get there. Food is ok but not great for the price prefer to go in town.

The hotel is nice

room is clean, staff is friendly, food in restaurant is good
We like the stay in this hotel. Its location is good, not far from the city center and the hotel staff is friendly. Room is clean with air conditioner. The food in the hotel restaurant is good, especially the mixed fried rice that we like it so much.

Basic hotel near candy lake

Price and friendly staff
nothing really worked when we arrived (air con, tele, shower) but the manager soon looked into this and as some couldn't be fixed we were offered a complimentary dinner which was delicious. kind of out of the way from the town and not walkable to the lake. for the price however it was fine.

A pleasant guest house in Kandy

Nice view of the Kandy hillside
We stayed one night in Kandy Residence during December 2012. The hotel is located up the hill behind the Kandy Lake and is fairly easy to access via tuk-tuk or taxi (but a bit far to walk). The guest house rooms are fairly simple, beds were comfortable although no mosquito net was provided as shown in the pics so we had to put insect cream on in the middle of the night after we were bitten. The bathroom is also fairly basic but functions well. We had breakfast and dinner at the guest house and they were both quite good. The owner was very friendly and helped us to arrange transport to Galle the following day.

Great food and service

great balcany view with breakfast
Though not the newest hotel,the place has a great atmosphere. Just make sure if you wish to drink that the kitchen has stocks of beer.

good location, very helpful staff

each room has own balcony, quiet, good service
the staff was trying hard to provide good service in any situation and was very friendly and helpful. the rooms are of different quality, ours was (3 beds) very simple, but there are nicer ones in the complex building. 15 minutes of walk to reach the lake, another 15 minutes to the temple. For most probably best by tuktuk.

Lovely hotel and best hosts

Quiet location, friendly staff
from the beginning we had a good impression of kandy residence - we had a complimentary pick up from the station in a comfortable car and heman gave us a warm welcome when we arrived at the hotel. we were glad that the hotel is a little further out from the town as this was more peaceful and with a great view. it is only a short walk to the lake/town, or if the weather is bad then the hotel can call for a tuk tuk. we were given a lovely room with beautiful 4 poster bed and balcony, very clean. had the weather been nice, we were going to do a trip to sigiriya rock, which the hotel arranged for us at a very reasonable price. breakfast was always very nice, one day we asked to try sri lankan breakfast of string hoppers which was great. the staff there are the best, absolutely service with a smile. heman even offered his service to escort us to hospital when my husband hurt his neck, and without him we would have had a lot more hassle. we couldn't have asked for more!

Outstanding service

Food & Service
The attention to the client and overall service here far exceeded any expectations. The small team did everything to ensure we were comfortable and well looked after. Great location and fantastic view from the room and dining room. The food was superb at every meal. Some of the best we've had in Sri Lanka. We would recommend this place to anyone travelling through Kandy.
