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.

Boutique accommodation at its best

Style, Staff, Serenity
The Elephant Stables is a beautiful boutique hotel, tucked away in the area surrounding Kandy - about 7km out of the main town. A small place with maybe 10 rooms, all tastefully decorated and comfortably homelike. Beautiful gardens and pool area. Limited menu choices - but don't let that put you off! The curry option for evening meal brings 10 sumptuous curries, generously portioned and each utterly delicious! washed down with an ice cold glass of Lion beer, sitting out in the garden - as close to perfect as you could hope for. A hotel not to be passed by - spoil yourself and stay more than one night ; ) the hotel management have a tuk tuk, a buggy and a vintage car - all of which can be used (for a price) to shuttle you too and from the various tourist sites in Kandy. Getting a pick up fro the train station is a blessing - the train station wasn't too chaotic - but it is always nice to not have to worry about finding your own way.

Good view, but expensive and a hike into town

1. Nice pool and view of the hills 2. Large rooms 3. Good breakfast
I would not recommend this hotel to other guests with young children. The public areas (other than around the pool) are not designed for young children. Also we were charged 2,500 LKR for breakfast for 2 children - very expensive for Sri Lanka. It is not that close to central Kandy - about a 400 LKR tuk-tuk ride and up a very narrow steep road. There is nothing you can walk to from the hotel. The hotel is pretty but I was disappointed by the suite. It did not have a bath in the bathroom. Despite the huge size of the room, there was no desk for sitting at or lounge to relax on (there were three small chairs to watch TV from). The rooms could be much more comfortable for the price charged.

A Truly magical escape in the hills around Kandy

The food was outstanding , quality and presentation 10/10 The staff and the highest levels of customer service at all times The quiet surroundings and the hotel decor were perfect to unwind in
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the Elephant Stables, everything about our stay was perfect from the beautiful and well maintained gardens and pool, the decor in all the common areas and the design and layout of the rooms , to the friendliness of all the staff who always went out of their way to help and accommodate our needs , Nihal in particular delivered exceptional customer service , would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Kandy as it is a short drive from Kandy but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle of the place. Thank you for a wonderful experience

Hidden paradise in the midst of Kandy city jungle

Beautifully decorated and well equiped room, friendly and attentive staff, quiet location not far from center
The room was rather small but spotless clean and nicely decorated with a cozy balcony. The staff was very helpfull and always ensured every request was attended to promptly. The garden and the swiming pool were lovely and we enjoyed having our meals outside. The food was quite good, especially comparing to other hotels we ate at during our stay in Sri Lanka. All in all, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely recomend the hotel to our friends.
