Very friendly staff and quiet environment up at the hill”
The location is not at the action pack but it gives a a great quietness if u need a good night sleep. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They care about your needs all the time. I had a pleasant time with this hotel.

Overall not good”
The place had an overall creepy feeling. Staff was strange and we didn't have any welcoming feeling as in the several places we had been in Sri Lanka (this is my last review after staying in 7 places). Location is good as you go down the hill easily and reach temples and centre within minutes (you need to go on a shortcut that may not be ok for individual travelers at night but can use main winding road- just a few min more- still easy). The beds were just ok, linen was not great and bathroom was old and not to the highest degree of cleaniliness. No breakfast included and honestly for the cost of 500 rupees demanded not worthy in this town (suggest to go to main street and take any of the side street, plenty of bakeries which offer you triple of things for same amount of money or the same for 3 times less and so much tasty). The point that agravated our feeling of this place is that one of the staff who brought us a non fresh juice when we arrived, checked my colleague passport and followed us when we got into the city, and when we were in the main street he came to say hello directly in italian (my colleague was italian) and start chatting (he had been in italy, exactly in the same place where she was from) and he took us to the spice market as a friendly person from the hotel who didn't want to sell anything- my friend totally fell for it and bought a few things- irrelevant in terms of money spent but the principle for us is we couldn't trust staff at this hotel

Very handy location”
Just a few minutes walk down a lane to the corner of Kandy Lake. Rooms spacious, if in need of renovation, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. My only negative point is that not only is there no bottled water supplied but they charge double the price of the supermarket.

Adequate and well Located”
We enjoyed our stay here partly because of the location. We had lovely views from our room and it was a very quick walk down to the lake and center. The room could have been a tad cleaner as it looks as if it needs a little updating. Staff was great, attentive and warm. Breakfast was very good with lots of fresh fruit. For the money, it was fine, especially if you are interested in an excellent location.

Lovely Old Bungalow, needs effort & work.”
Staff, Quiet Location, Not far from City
We were very tired on arrival, and asked for a meal. The regular cook was absent, which we were not informed, and the meal turned out to be badly cooked and could not finish it. Roads are steeply sloped, not good for older people to walk on. Local tuk-tuk (The Indian auto-rickshaw)prices are exorbitant; the drivers cover more than a 2-way ride in their price. Breakfast was basic, but served cheerfully, with every effort by the housekeeping and restaurant staff to please; however, their culinary skills are very basic. Our room had a view of the lake and Tooth Relic Temple, but there was a long common balcony just outside where guests would sit and smoke. The curtains were very light, and with the lights on in the room, occupants could be seen clearly. Staff did make an effort and gave us 2 heavier curtains, but those did not cover the entire window. Bathtub was stained, and water supply pressure was low. Took some time for hot water to get to the faucet because of long pipes. The main gate was locked at 10pm, so if we came back later than that we had to inform the staff in advance. Kandy shuts down by 10 pm. There was a good restaurant nearby (10 minutes up a steep slope)

the hotel staff were so helpfull, position of the hotel, hot shower wsa good
You can walk from the train or bus station to the hotel so no tuk tukits about 1 km. It's a 5 minute walk to the lake and a nice 20 min walk around the lake to the Temple of the Tooth. Good value .
