        Experience at travellers nest”
        A friendly and caring staff. Always tried their level best to accomodate our requests. Helped us even for personnel matters and guided us properly and followed it. Hotel premises and rooms are ckean and tidy. Dishes supplied in buffets are adequete but glad if few more dishes were available. This is to have a more variety. Kitchen took extra effort to fulfil our order even time was upto close the kitchen. Food is tasty and served with sufficient quantities. We stayed for three nights and it was noticed that more staff required for room service to enhance the efficiency. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and hope to stay again there when visit Kandy. Special thanks to mr. Jude (manager) and mr. Dharmarathne for their assistance and humble attitude.

        The hotel is hidden in hills, but close to Kandy Lake, roughly ten minutes walk. The room was nice and staff there were kind. So far one of our best stays in SRI LANKA.

        Not as good as expected.”
        The hotel looked good from the photos, but on arrival a long way out of Kandy, off a very busy road, the rooms were very small bathroom even smaller, with a broken toilet seat, some of the bedding was thread bare, and not sure if it had been changed, we were kept awake by dogs barking most of the night, not much choice at breakfast, on plus side the staff were very helpful and friendly.

        Helpful staff”
        There were plenty of good staff who genuinely wanted to do anything to help your stay a comfortable one. Despite all of this it's worth pointing the fact this motel is not well looked after when it came to cleanliness in bedrooms and its general repair. Stained bed linen, broken hand bidet, damp stained crumbling walls, broken curtain rods and no handle or lock in the bathroom window to mention a few. These are not poor staffs faults but the management and owners should really attend to. Your best assest is your wonderful staff so don't let them down by walking past the basic requirements of a hotel. Staff, you were fantastic!

        Room are not very good. Cupboards had missing doors and broken handles. Locker in the room was non functional. Bathroom fittings were loose and leaking. Absolutely no view from window. It is located deep inside a small lane which was difficult to reach. Only bright point was the staff was very courteous and helpful especially the one on the desk. Food is decent. All in all I would say you can get better options in same budget.

        Way ahead all my Expectations. Totally worth it. ”
        We booked a room on our way to the Kandy around 7pm. At 9.30 pm I telephoned to the manager to tell that we'll be late and he was very helpful at that matter. The distance from the city centre to hotel is ok with us (300/= LKR for tuk tuk) but during day time there will be some traffic. The hotel management was really good. When I was asking about the dinner on the day we came to the hotel by phone, he spoke very frankly and told me that their kitchen was closed at that time, but he gave me real valuable information about the restaurants which would open at that late night in Kandy. When we arrived to the hotel, the manager (Mr. Jude) was there and was very helpful for us. He tried to do the registration as quick as possible. That was really appreciated because we were very tired at that time. When we asked to took some photographs of our selves, Mr. Jude volunteered him self and help us. That was exceptional. We stayed in Standard double room and the room was exceptional. It was way beyond all our expectations. Actually the photos which they published in the internet are not reflect the real quality of the room. The actual room was way ahead from the photographs. We can give 9/10 for the Cleanliness of the room. The lighting, facilities, bathroom, hot water, everything was quite exceptional. For the next time I stay in Kandy, definitely I will go to Travellers Nest.

        Not the best but not the worst!”
        large rooms, friendly staff, good view
        We spent one night in Kandy here and is was ok but not a 3 star hotel. The rooms are large with a balcony most are shared but our room was on the top floor (3rd)no elevator and had a private balcony. The rooms are poorly lit but are reasonably clean. The hotel is quite far from the main shopping area as you have to drive around the lake to get there since they closed the access road in front of the temple. The traffic in Kandy is atrocious and could take up to an hour to go the 5 or 6 kilometers! The staff was nice but the breakfast was very limited to hard boiled eggs and some Asian dishes total of about 5. This would be a good backpackers hotel but a little pricey for them and for what you get.

        Don't Get The Standard Room!”
        Location, Dining, Staff
        I think we could have enjoyed our stay at Hotel Travelers Nest if we hadn't gone with a standard room - they are located in front of the driveway, meaning both lots of noise and also that the room doesn't get any fresh air or sunlight. Our room was extremely mouldy for this reason and smelt it too. On top of that, our door didn't close properly so there were mossies and other bugs getting in. Apart from this, the hotel is within 15 minutes walk to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth, the restaurant was good and so were the staff. I can only guess that the lake view rooms would be better.

        The hotel is modern and clean. Good staff but they should improve on their english skills. Bed is very comfortable, bathroom very nice but a bit small. Wifi is very shaky unfortunately. That is no good in such a modern hotel, and they should fix that. Breakfast is standard but ok. Would recommend the hotel to friends.

        The hotel is nearly new and in excellent condition. Service is prompt and staff are pleasant and courteous. Chauffeur was able to stay at the same hotel eliminating the need to arrange pick-up time.
        This has to be the best 3-star hotel in Kandy (or in any other place really). The hotel is kept spotless and all the facilities are modern and they all work. Hot water is hot. Power points all work. Air-conditioning and fan are quiet. Restaurant service is prompt and staff are all well mannered and polite. Most speak very good English. Furnishings are good and the tables and chairs on the balcony are kept clean and very pleasant to spend a few minutes sitting in the fresh air and breeze. It is the sort of place that I'd find an excuse to spend an extra day or two in Kandy just to enjoy staying at this hotel.

        Scenic location, comfortable beds, great breakfast
        Sendadhi, the owner pleasantly surprised us with a free upgrade to the suite. We also checked in rather early and we requested for a mountain guide for a trek and managed to arrange for all of that in a rush, we're appreciative of the gestures. The suite had two large beds, amazing views and was very clean. Breakfast items were home-made and absolutely delicious with a spread of banana chocolate pancakes, omelettes and fruits.
