Refurbishments could be fantastic
Lovely Old colonial building and location. friendly staff. Exciting future with new management
This lovely old hotel is about to be refurbished and unfortunatley it is rather bare at present and we were assigned an unfurbished room. That said the staff were really lovely and the new manager apologised profusely for the fact that the hotel had not advertised the lack of an alcohol licencevon the agoda website. This was an issue for us as we had gone there for a wedding anniversary and ended up celebrating in a bare dining room with ginger beer. The manager did promise us a refund through Agoda so we are waiting for that. The management is new - the Edwards Collection - and once this place is up and running again after a year it will be fabulous. We will go back!

Historic Hotel, peaceful break form city hotels
Building architecture, large rooms, staff
The Mansion is an old family home converted into hotel. Much of the original architecture, furniture, and even pictures have been retained… however bathroom faculties more up-to date. We only stayed one night, but it was very peaceful and relaxing. Staff were extremely friendly and genuine. The Manager of the hotel told us that they will be renovating and turning hotel into a high-en boutique hotel soon. We will definitely return.

Mansion at Kandy - too good!
The beautiful heritage property, friendly staff, serene surroundings.
Mansion is a little far away from the main tourist attraction in kandy, which is the temple of tooth relic. It was a good 25 to 30 minute drive away from the temple. It is also slightly difficult to find. But once we did, we were glad we had booked this place. The property is clean, huge and beautiful. The rooms are also spacious and is filled with antique/antique finish furniture. 3 of us were sharing a room (girls) and the 2 boys were sharing a room. When we checked in, the manager offered us a bigger room with an extra bed at no extra cost. The boys had trouble with the air con in their room and they were moved to a different room without any delay. This is one mansion I will definitely go back to.

Tropical suburb of Old Shanghai Hotels
Large room, well-maintained building of history, good breakfast
The stay there was a wonderful experience. The whole building/mansion is worth exploring. Would recommend it to those who stay there for more than 3 days. Its location is not convenient for travellers, otherwise, it's a very good place to relax.

Very beautiful hotel, but located in an usual spot
The heritage of the building, size of guest room, quiet location.
We had an enjoyable stay at The Mansion, but it was over-shadowed by the attention spent to an on-site wedding & their guests. Most of the hotel & grounds were closed to us for a portion of our first day.

fantastic gorgeous luxury accommodation
the building is an historic one and the rooms and public spaces just beautiful
fantastic...we thought we'd died and gone to heaven, didn't want to ever leave. the building is so beautiful with grand rooms including our bedroom...full of antique furniture and beautiful art works. the staff attend to every need and are very friendly. breakfast was great : the food and the outdoor setting. the spaces available to sit and read to rest are grand but also quiet and relaxing. the grounds are superb. Although it's 11 km from kandy going in and out was not an issue (we had a car and driver but other options are available) we liked being out of central kandy which was very busy when we were there. we would definitely stay again at the fabulous price we got on agoda!!

Quiet & peaceful
Large rooms, country atmosphere, attentive staff
Approach road to the hotel needs attention, you need a SUV or a car with high clearance as the road is very rugged. The curfew of 11:00 pm is really bad especially as it takes half an hour to reach the Hotel from Kandy town. Hotel is not well signposted very hard to locate it in the night as the Mansion Hotel Sign in not visible in the night and we went past the hotel for more than 3 kilometers.

Wonderful experience
Accomodating staff, large airy well-lit clean rooms, and fantastic property
The staff accomodated our children and their noises, our vegetarian meal requests and our time for dinner and breakfast, and were friendly throughout. The property was fantastic, and again Agoda or any other reviewing site's photos dont do justice. The only down side is that the internet access was patchy and at times not working.

Romantic hotel in Kandy
Beautiful romantic hotel, nice garden, good location
One of the best hotels during our trips in Asia: good location in near by Kandy still in the countryside (rice fields, spice gardens). Very helpful staff. Feel free to ask for airport transfer straight from Colombo - the hotel organized for fair price and the service is very good. Kandy is a contrast with Colombo - people here are friendly, fare and the place is beautiful ans cheerful. Visiting tea plantations is a must - hotel will also help to arrange this kind of trip.
