"I stayed at the Queen's hotel in Kandy in July 2012 before the Perahela Festival. The hotel is an old colonial heritage, with quite charming old-school decorations. Rooms are old but very clean and carefully tended. The service is friendly. The restaurant provides local as well as international cuisine at a value price. The location is very convenient for Kandy tour, just in the north western end of the Kandy lake. Besides there is also a shop providing high quality Sri Lankan souvenirs and tea (you have to get out of the gate and turn right, 50m). One of the drawbacks is guests might be waken up by the 6am temple chanting by the loudspeaker on the road around the lake."

"Really nice colonial style hotel in Kandy. Rooms are lovely and is is only 5 minutes away from he centre of Kandy.Food is good and there is a lovely bar which looks down the river. Make sure you visit the temple when you are in Kandy as it is the best temple we visited in Sri Lanka. You are also very close to the Tea Plantations which are really beautiful in stunning countryside. Lovely hotel, very classy."

"Stayed at this Kandy City Hotel for 1 night during a recent holiday trip to Sri Lanka. It is a new hotel and has just been in operations for a few days when we stayed there. Everything is still new and even our room had a fresh smell of paint when we first entered it. Locationwise, it is located at the heart of Kandy City, so it offers close proximity to the lake, the Tooth Relic Temple, Kandy City Center mall, as well as restaurants and supermarkets. I think location is the best thing about this hotel. Breakfast was also very tasty and well prepared, for which we greatly appreciated. In general, accomodation in Sri Lanka is expensive if we compare it with the rest of Asian countries. So, at the rate we were given, I really have nothing serious to complain about this hotel. If I need to mention 1 flaw, I think the bathroom in the room is too small, while it is obvious that the room itself still has a lot of unused space. So, I was wondering why they didn't make the bathroom a little bit bigger than it is now. Also, the drain stinks badly so I think the hotel needs to do something about it immediately. "

"I’ve been unhappy with Kandy hotels so far until my stay at Ozo. It’s up the road from the lakefront, and has a lovely relaxed look and feel to it. I enjoyed both lunch and dinner there, and the buffet breakfast was generous and tasty. The staff are impeccably trained, and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I hope this hotel keeps up its standards. For now it’s your best bet in Kandy. "

"We had wonderful time at Swiss Residence Kandy. Peaceful place and easy access to the hotel and very short distance to Kandy city. The parking is good and security guards are helpful to park vehicles. Welcoming is good with welcome drink. The room quality is excellent and way better than we expected. Doorbell and door access panel of hotel room is modern and love the way they arranged bathroom and toilet separately. Bathroom well cleaned, and quality bathware use. The hotel staff professional and helpful. The view we get from the hotel was excellent. Day time, and night time both were amazing. The room quality, bed, air conditioning unit all were perfect. We only had the breakfast from hotel and really enjoyed the meal, buffet included all craving food options including English breakfast and Sri Lanka meals. The hotel swimming pool is well maintained and clean, the place that pool located also great. At last this is underrated but one of the best hotels in Kandy to me. Only concern you should remember, there is sudden steep hill while accessing to the hotel and better you put sport mode/ power mode of your vehicle when you near hotel."
