              Beautiful location and lovely small hotel”

              Excellent view from the hotel, smiling and caring staff, good food and cleanliness.

              My family of five adults had a lovely experience at Kandyan View Holiday Bungalow. It was home away from home. This 2 year old hotel is likely a bungalow with excellent service. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Rooms were clean. We had two suppers and breakfasts. They were good. The best thing about this place is the view it offers. Located at one of the highest points in Kandy, it gives a good view of Kandy city as well as the surrounding hills. We loved the place.

              Great Hotel up in the clouds”

              Remoteness of the place, nice room, friendly service.

              The hotel is what I read in other reviews. It is up on one of the hills, quite easily accessible by auto-rickshaws. Its remoteness is a blessing for those who like quietness and the countryside to roam around. The bungalow is hint of Englishness in the decor. Each room is decorated rather nicely and comfortably. TV has a good number of satellite channels. Wi-Fi is in the lobby. I like my room (number 26). It has a panoramic view of Kandy with the clouds wafting in and out. This room is right at the top. During heavy downpour, the pitter-pattering of raindrops made quite a din. The din muffled at the lower floor and made a nice cozy slumber. It is quite a trek to Kandy City but good for those who like to walk. The way up is arduous. Suggest taking a auto-rickshaw up from Kandy (for about 350LKR). For those who need city liveliness, this hotel may not be suitable for them.

              Good value for money. Good views of Kandy. Kind and helpful staff”

              Location: Quite near to Kandy city centre. Nice views of Kandy from the hotel if you book the right room. There are two ways to reach the hotel and one of the roads (which Google Maps sometime recommends is quite bad). Take the Thapodaramaya Road to the hotel. Do not take the Vihara Mawata/Richmond Hill Lane way to the hotel. Staff: Very helpful and kind. Amenities: Nice, clean room with comfortable beds and a shower with good flow of hot water. Overall: Definite recommendation for stay here in Kandy

              The view of Kandy

              I traveled here with two friends and we really loved the hotel. It was nice and clean with a great view! It is a ways out of town which was okay for us since we had a driver but the hills up are steep and it's not really within walking distance to anything. The views are worth the drive up, breakfast was pretty good, and it was a comfortable stay.

              AMAZING, super clean, great views of the mountains”

              Views, staff very friendly, price very afordable.

              The rooms has AC, clean toilet and at least one of the rooms we took had fridge. It is a bit far from the center, we paid abour 250-350 rupies everytime we wanted to go to the center, we got the telephone of a very good guy and cheap, not the 600 rupies other tuk tuk drivers were asking for the ride. Staff supper nice, we got breakfast at 11am and the last day at 12pm and they didn´t complain. The table for breakfast is facing the whole valley, just amazing view to start the day.

              Staff went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. Manager even drove us in his tuktuk to several locations when other transport was unavailable, including getting up at 4AM to drive us to the train station. Sadees the assistant was also very helpful and welcoming, and spoke good English. Would definitely recommend if you don't mind a bit of a journey into the town, it had a great view over the Kandy highlands and was very clean and smart.

              it's a little bit hard to find the hotel by our driver at night.(20-30 mins from city) also , the road condition is not good , it might be difficult to get there by "tuk tuk". but you can enjoy your dinner with kandy night view with this reasonable price .also enjoy the garden at daytime .

              I loved it. I stayed here for 5 nights x 2 weeks for a business trip in Kandy and although it was slightly out the way, I didn't trade it in for accom closer to the lake centre. The rooms were clean with good bathrooms and the breakfast was delicious.

              Good view of the city

              Stayed here for two days. Absolutely enjoyed my stay. The hotel is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, on top of a hill overlooking Kandy. The rooms & bathrooms are clean. The staff are polite & helpful. However, wifi is only strong in the lobby. If you're staying at the 2nd floor, wifi in the room is almost impossible. Besides that, the city is about a 10 to 15 minute tuk tuk ride away, which might not be everyone's cup of tea.

              We spent five nights at the Kandyanview and it was a very pleasant experience. They have a great location in the hills overlooking Kandy. There is also a small manicured garden terrace - great for a card game in the evening. The staff is super friendly and the dining area is inducive to backpacker conversations. The management is very helpful in organizing sightseeing trips or a tuktuk to town. Adjacent to the property is a huge communication tower that may cause concern to some.
