Located in the heart of Kandy, this colonial era hotel exudes a history of its own in a city steeped in ancient culture. Juxtaposing east and west, the Temple of the Tooth can be found directly across the road, as can the historical, man-made Nuwarawewa Lake. Opposite the hotel though, guests will also find modern examples of Western influences with a Pizza Hut and KFC literally across the street. Exuding the aged elegance you would expect from a former Governor’s Residence, the Queen's Hotel sends patrons back to a different time with its spacious guestrooms, high ceilings, ornate staircases, and an original iron elevator. All rooms have balconies with views over the lake, mountains, or the street – handy for catching Kandy’s Perahera procession. Queen's Hotel awaits your visit.

Terrible food

Location was perfect and the staff was friendly and helpful
Our stay was good however the food at the hotel was absolutely terrible and that was all meals. And we are not the complaining types and normally eat most food.

Great hotel but....

Good ambiance , historical building, good location
This a great hotel in a great location with great staff. We had a fantastic time until a tour group arrived on our last evening and the noise just echoed around as they went to their rooms at 11pm I called reception twice and went outside my room twice myself to ask them to be quiet to no avail and we were awaken at 6pm by their tour leader banging every door and shouting breakfast at the top of her voice. All reception good do was say sorry. I great way to ruin an otherwise fantastic stay

Comfort and convenient

Staff, Food and location
The rooms were large and spacious. The rooms even old and colonial style were kept in mint condition. The staff are very friendly and very accommadating. The lodation was perfect as it is in the heart of town. close to the train, bus station and the famous Kandy temple.

Great location but needs work

Location location location
This is right by the lake opposite the Tooth Relic temple and museum. The catering and interior (may be exterior too) need improvement and renovation. It has great potentials to upgrade itself to 5-star status. The room and bathroom resemble a backpackers' joint, but the price doesn't. There's only a Chinese restaurant in the hotel which a little bit of a let down.

Historical Hotel at Kandy

1)Staff Performance; 2)Good Location; 3)Reasonable Price
The Queen's Hotel is really historical building in the colonial period. Staff performances are good too. We will select Queen again during the next trip to Kandy :)
Nicole S. Couples United Kingdom, March 4, 2015
Over-priced, needs an overhaul, but great location

Location, location, location
This hotel would be fine if they charged about half the rate they are asking. Our room was musty and not super clean (my husband found something that looked like coffee grounds in our shower...). The service in the bar and at the front desk was mediocre and uninterested, which was really different from most of the other places we stayed in Sri Lanka. I found the accommodation in Sri Lanka generally over-priced, but the only real reason I would suggest you stay here is because of the location. If they ever renovate this place it will be a spectacular hotel.
Marco G. Groups Italy, February 18, 2015
Historical hotel kept poorly

location, features, atmosphere
i have to admit that this hotel is fascinating. I just wish that the owners will invest some money to keep it in a better state. Food is just terrible... In particular breakfast... Didnt try dinner as they had again a very plain touristy buffet
