    Please make sure hotel will provide spa facilities and there is no ash tray in balconies for smokers. Please provide big water bottles in rooms and make it free and include in room charges. There is no swimming pool for small kids. But over all good experience with management and staff.

    Room completely different from photos in the booking”

    The room we were offered at arrival was completely different from what was shown in the booking photos. Both size and setup of the room had nothing to do with the photos. There was not even a window, the room was stuffy and smelled of smoke. However, the staff reacted well and offered us a room in a smaller nearby hotel named Sweet Lanka Boutique Kandy.

    Great views over Kandy Lake, comfortable large rooms

    We just stayed there for 1 night, unfortunately it was raining so we never tried out the pool or got to explore Kandy much. The rooms were comfortable, but the bathrooms are in desperate need of refurbishment.

    Good food, nice staff and big rooms

    Overall stay was good. The main lift might get stuck sometimes and we had to change lifts to go to our room. Balconeys were not safe since monkeys came there. They even tried sliding the door to get into the room. Food was good and staff was friendly.

    Lovely views”

    Friendly staff. Very nice Ayurvedic spa

    We had monkeys visiting our balcony every day. We really enjoyed their presence as they were lots of fun and a bundle of energy. Of course, there is a sign in the room saying do not feed the monkeys, but.... The dinner restaurant had a live band at night and was really enjoyable. They had a BBQ spread which looked really nice but we didn't try that. Some parts of the hotel near the pool was undergoing renovation but other than that , everything else was fine. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    Good hotel and lovely rooms. Good breakfast and nice coffee. ”

    All staff very attentive and helpful. We were upgraded to the royal pavilion overlooking the lake. Fantastic room. Food was very good quality and variety. Only slight downside is the price of beer. It is the only place I have stayed at where a bottle of beer is the same price as a mojitos or pina colada. Also one of the main attractions for tourists is Sri Lanka’s fantastic wildlife. So tell security staff to dispense with the air rifles. This is needless and cruel. Otherwise great hotel.

    Don't like large noisy groups avoid this hotel ”

    Room was good and positively enormous with fantastic views over lake and town. Dining experience was not good being surrounded by large groupscale who all seemed to shout down their tables. Although buffet was OK there was no a la carte option available. The European popular music being busked around the dining table was definitely not my taste nor was it Sri Lankan. At $US 95 per night for b & b and claiming 4stars I would have expected a stocked mini-bar (billable of course)
