Excellent boutique hotels high above Kandy

the location, the quality/decoration of room, the dining
Beautiful hotel high above the hustle and bustle of Kandy (only 15 minutes down to Kandy by tuk, tuk. Lovely surroundings. Food excellent - but huge portions. All staff friendly, but most helpful were the manager, mr. weerasekara, and two of his male assistants, who were very switched on (more so than us as we lost the card with their name, sorry). We stayed in the cottage which was big and lovely!

Lovely staff and wonderful atmosphere

The staff here are wonderful. Very accomondating and helpful. They were lovely with our daughter too. The room was large and very clean. The food had moments of pure bliss.
We would come back here. You cannot fault the customer service.

I wish I could live there.

The imecaable staff, the mindful design, the serenity.
This was my second stay, my second visit to Sri Lanka. I went out of my way to visit The Elephant Stables again. The setting is lush, the design is sophisticated and beautiful, and the staff couldn't be friendlier and fun.

Very nice boutique hotel with character

Room, View, Staff
A hotel with a great feeling and excellent staff. Great room and view and very comfortable. There was a problem with the Aircon which was attended to. The food was the only let down, it wasn't as good as other less expensive places we have been to in Sri Lanka

Beautiful setting, comfortable hotel

Atmosphere, room, location
We enjoyed the beautiful setting and serene atmosphere of the Elephant Stables. The only downside was the very limited meal choices. We felt it was a little expensive given the level of meal service, but the boutique atmosphere was stellar and the extra touches like making hand phones available were very special and helpful. The 5-star rating is deserved but the meal choices need improvement, they lean very heavily to Western food which seems unreasonable.

Awesome Elephant Stables

the food, the staff, the view
The best place we stayed in, in Sri Lanka, I don't write hotel reviews generally, but felt I had to given the brilliant experience we had here. Everything was to a very high standard and staff were attentive without being over familiar

Wonderful Boutique Hotel

Beautiful decor. Comfortable rooms. Wonderful staff.
This was my favourite hotel of all those we stayed in during our three week holiday in Sri Lanka. It was a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy. The whole hotel is beautiful furnished with interesting pieces of artwork around. Lovely pool area and great staff. I particularly must mention Dilini who was a wonderful hostess!! I wish we could have stayed longer in this gem of a hotel and hope to return one day.

Kandy Boutique

The location on a hilltop with great views, the small size and the attentiveness of the staff.
This is a perfect boutique hotel located on a beautiful hilltop with views on both sides. It is newly redone in exquisite style, serves excellent food, and has a very attentive staff. The gardens are immaculately kept and there is a lovely pool. All in all, a place I would highly recommend.
