    Super friendly staff!”
    The place is up in the mountains, quite far from the city CENTRE. The rooms are spacious, but the bathroom shows signs of humidity and needs renovation.

    Excellent”
    We had the most beautiful view from our room. We were able to see most of Kandy and it's lake. We had a balcony so it was perfect to sit outside in the evening and have a drink and relax. The room was good, clean. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. For example, they served us breakfast before the actually breakfast time without problem or complaining as we booked a private driver with the hotel to drive us to some of the main sights near Kandy as a day trip. They offered us a welcome drink and answered all of the questions we had patiently. We didn't use the pool as we only stayed for a short time and were out and about most of it, but i looked very clean. It is best to take a tuk tuk or taxi up the hotel as it is on a hill.

    Very nice staff, beautiful architect, but not well maintained or clean”
    Pro's: very nice staff, nice views, beautiful architecture. Con's rooms not clean, toilet had fecal matter from previous guests, floors not clean, shower in need of maintenance, even broken chair in room! Pool full of leaves and ripped patio furniture! Toilet clogged up after use. Property needs maintenance and investment.

    The hotel has 6 rooms only so its not much of a hotel but a villa. The rooms are clean and spacious with nice view. The location is not much accessible and is at the top of the hill. You cannot walk to the road expecting a tuk tuk or taxi, would have to book one in advance. Food would be a concern as there is no full fledged restaurant. You would have to let them know well in advance for any lunch/dinner to be prepared. Breakfast buffet is okay, bread eggs, roti and Dal with ample fruits. Recommend to stay if you like serene view of the city and lake.

    Impressed with the physical look of the building but disapointed with the toilet”
    The hotel looked like a loft and we were excited when we entered the apartment. The room was spacious. The breakfast place was lovely. We were disappointed with the hygiene of the toilet. It smelled after a while. There was a cockroach which the staff helped us to catch it. We found a strand of hair in one of the bath towel.

    Worst management”
    We preferred and booked a room with lake view a month before in Hotel See Kandy, but when arrived at 8pm, we got no room and asked to move to a different hotel with no view in that room. Hotel See Kandy itself was hard to locate and then at that late time we had tough time to settle down. The day ended just worst because of the ordeals and improper hotel management people.

    the distance mentioned on the website is about 20 mins walk from town. But for a city person, definitely need more than that to climb up the slope. Nice night view of kandy centre from the room and could see the temple of the tooth site just at opposite of the lakeside.

    Poor mangement”
    Some off the staff, the viau, open reception round the clock.
    Wee have bookeed 4 days - stayeed only 2 days. The rooms were filthy with smelling towels. The pool was full off leaves and really worn out. The bottom off the pool was green off alges. The shower in the pool area was full off dirt and old plants!!! There wasen't many guest but instead off improving the hotel the manager was just sitting on his bottom the hole day. The young staff were very frindly and helpfull, but have no chance under such poor manegement.

    Great views....poor cleanliness. ”
    The view, large rooms, swimming pool
    The staff are very friendly and welcoming, but are let down by not really having an idea of what service and cleanliness are all about. The linen and towels were dirty. I don't mean unwashed as I think they were, but the white sheets, pillow slips and towels were very visibly dirty looking. The floor throughout the entire hotel needed a good clean with a mop and bucket of water. After reading the reviews we were prepared for the long wait after ordering dinner, so we ordered the food as soon as we arrived back from an outing, then went to our room to freshen up. After we arrived back at the restaurant, we waited another hour, before being served out meals (a bowl of chips and a 'chicken' korma curry) I wouldn't have minded the wait so much if the food was reasonable. It wasn't. The 'chicken' consisted of about 80% bones and the rest gristle and flesh. The taste was ok, but would never eat here again. Don't get me wrong, it was a pleasant stay, but the gentlemen working there really had no idea about service or hygiene. One days training is all it would take to get this hotel on the right track.

    See the view, watch the food.”
    Great décor, views and comfortable as well.
    There was a steep tuk-tuk ride up to the hotel but the view was worth it. Check-in was smooth and friendly and when we informed them of our very early check-out they arranged transport and a boxed breakfast. The hotel was fresh and clean throughout, with a great décor. The room was comfortable and clean with a good view over Kandy. The restaurant looked promising but then went and served uncooked chicken. Real bad. I would definitely stay in the hotel again as it was good value… I will be wary of the kitchen though.

    Not worth the money”
    Location, terrace, large rooms
    The hotel is located up the hill and has a great view of Kandy lake. Rooms are big and have a nice terrace. This is a new hotel, and a lot of things were not ok. Pool is small, cold and was dirty, especially surrounding of pool needs cleaning. On he third day there was no more hot water. Breakfast service was slow and unorganised, cups were dirty, tables were not set, no napkins, fruits served last, etc... We had the worst dinner buffet at the highest price during our entire stay in Sri Lanka. Staff were friendly and helpful, but clearly were not used to have guests. No credit cards accepted, only cash.
