Overpriced, overrated, far away, not maintained

Our room was large - I can't really come up with more good things
This place is overpriced and overrated. It hasn't been refurbished for ages, and it clearly shows. The bathroom was disgusting, and the AC was weak. It could be a really nice place with some investment, but for the time being: Stay away, there are several better options in the area.

Lovely Bungalow

Lovely Location and Surrounded by Nature
The hotel, used to be the HQ of the Planters' Association, has rustic charm and plenty of space for a group to chill. However, it had clearly seen better days and need a good renovation. The amendities in the rooms were basic but the laid back surroundings more than made up for it.

ok hotel

entrance hall is large
The planters Hotel is a beauitful building but not much more. You must order a Sri Lankan breakfast or you get crappy toaste and eggs. The room I had was large but no view or balcony. For the price it is expensive. Kandy has better hotels for lower price. I think they rely on people booking online based on the price. No locals are allowed into the rooms which is a piss off

Very bad hotel

It was a very bad hotel, very old. In all the parts of the hotel u can smell the oldness of this place. Very bad and small quantity of food, the stuff are kind and very good but it's not enough to cover all the negative sites of the hotel. There is no fridge in the room, no cupboard. All the animals around u, u feel yourself like u are living in jungles.
Restaurant Tip: Nice restaurants in Devon hotel- next to planters, good food, good people not expensive and actually the rates are cheaper than at planters. And a hotel in general is much better.
