Mansion is a grand white 2 storey mansion near the center of Kandy, filled with a beautiful ebony furniture collection. The mansion is surrounded by pretty gardens, fruit trees, swimming, and gazebo.

Offering a mansion of 11 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms: 6 double bedrooms with large ebony four poster beds, 3 twin rooms and 2 smaller standard double bedrooms, 1 double bedroom, and 1 Twin bedroom form a private interconnecting family suite if required on the ground floor which opens out onto the verandah at the front of the house.

The mansion is built in 1920s by Punchi Banda Nugawela, Diyawadana Nilame, of the “Temple of the Tooth” in Kandy. He was a chieftain in Kandy who was believed to have lived a lavish lifestyle during the early 1900s. They say the entrance doorframe is the largest in Sri Lanka. In the old days it was a common sight to see a baby elephant easily wander through the door on a visit to the dining room to snatch a banana from a guest.

This chieftain entertained on a grand scale and guests have included among others: Mahathma Gandhi in November 1928; during World War II, Louis Mountbatten the commander of British forces in Southeast Asia visited The Mansion Kandy, and Gregory Peck, the actor, used this house when filming ‘The Purple Plain’ in 1954.

In early 2014, Mansion became the flagship property for the new hospitality brand the Edwards Collection.

Refurbishments could be fantastic

Lovely Old colonial building and location. friendly staff. Exciting future with new management
This lovely old hotel is about to be refurbished and unfortunatley it is rather bare at present and we were assigned an unfurbished room. That said the staff were really lovely and the new manager apologised profusely for the fact that the hotel had not advertised the lack of an alcohol licencevon the agoda website. This was an issue for us as we had gone there for a wedding anniversary and ended up celebrating in a bare dining room with ginger beer. The manager did promise us a refund through Agoda so we are waiting for that. The management is new - the Edwards Collection - and once this place is up and running again after a year it will be fabulous. We will go back!

Mansion at Kandy - too good!

The beautiful heritage property, friendly staff, serene surroundings.
Mansion is a little far away from the main tourist attraction in kandy, which is the temple of tooth relic. It was a good 25 to 30 minute drive away from the temple. It is also slightly difficult to find. But once we did, we were glad we had booked this place. The property is clean, huge and beautiful. The rooms are also spacious and is filled with antique/antique finish furniture. 3 of us were sharing a room (girls) and the 2 boys were sharing a room. When we checked in, the manager offered us a bigger room with an extra bed at no extra cost. The boys had trouble with the air con in their room and they were moved to a different room without any delay. This is one mansion I will definitely go back to.
