    Stunning- Must stay while in Kandy”
    The Mountbatten was the first hotel on our journey in Sri Lanka, and the perfect place to be for exploring the temples of Kandy and also finding time to chill by the pool with the incredible views of the hills. The staff were by far our favorite of all that we met in Sri Lanka, and were super helpful when sourcing our train tickets to Ella, as well as helping us with a driver to be our tour guide! The food was amazing, from Delicious breakfast served in the stunning gardens at sunrise, to curries in the evening in the restaurant. We stayed in one of the cabins, which i would highly reccomend over the main house rooms- they were very high spec, and clean and right in the jungle with all the noises and trees looming over us! we totally loved it and will be going back!

    Beautiful relaxing jungle retreat with amazing views ”
    The place is amazing. The facilities great. Clean and with good tasty food. However no rest rooms around near the restaurant which I found quite strange. I had to go back to my chalet to wash my hands after food. The low point is the staff. Service in general was ok but the night staff was not exactly polite or ready to help. We called to fix power outage in the Chalet and he started scolding us as if we were some unruly kids that spoiled his night rest. His attitude was totally rude. When I complained the next morning and tried to see the manager I was told he was not around. Even the following day no one came back to me to sort this. I think it’s a shame as otherwise it’s a very nice place.

    Lovely location, a little far from town but nice to escape the hustle and bustle. The building and the room was charming. Has a very small quiet feel, it was mostly older European couples. The view and the pool are quite lovely. My only complaint would be that the breakfast, which is not included in all rooms, was quite overpriced ($20 US) for what we got which was also not great quality - stale bread and bad coffee.

    Quiet and peaceful hilltop escape”
    The place was very peaceful and charming. It had an amazing mountain view. It was a little challenging to find, best if you call them for directions or have Google Maps ready. But worth it once you arrive. The staff were superb and took care of us. Highly recommend for a quiet escape in Kandy.

    We liked our stay a lot. The gardens are stunning, the cottages are spacious and well equipped. The staff were v friendly. We loved our meals in the garden and the swim in the pool. Perhaps some signs on the road would be useful to help travellers find it.

    Poor management ....”
    Mountbatten bungalow has the character of the old colonial time but could be refurbished in a better way. The lighting is poor and needs to be redesign as it does not enhance any warm ambience; white bulbs light create a cold atmosphere. The menu is limited and does not offer much choice for dinner beside the choice of 4 omelets, 4 sandwiches, 1 Asian dish, the menu needs to be redesigned professionally to respond to an international clientele. Like many places we stayed in, in Sri Lanka, Mountbatten management (owner) seems to miss the potential that such colonial building has to offer, .... pity. On the other hand the garden is very well maintained. The battlers (multi functions staff that do housekeeping and waitering) were kind and welcoming. We most probably will not return as we know that the management of this kind of boutique hotel "chain" will not change, as it does not have the adequate hotel spirit expected.

    Beautiful views and cute wood chalet with all the top confort, on top of Kandy's mountain. The staff is very attentive, and the pool overlooking the valley a real plus. Food is slightly pricey, but breakfast is very good. Vue depuis la piscine magnifique, et service aux petits soins. Le chalet a tout le confort souhaite, et l endroit est tres calme. Seul bemol, les prix assez eleves du restaurant ( diner dehors), mais le petit dejeuner est somptueux. Tres recommende.

    山間の優雅なブティックホテル”
    キャンディ駅からトゥクトゥクで15~20分ほど(500~800ルピー程度)山道を登ったところにある山間の小さなブティックホテル。 昔イギリス人領主が住んでいたという山荘を改装した宿泊施設で小規模ながらも居心地が抜群。 よく手入れされたイングリッシュガーデン、遠くに望む山々、雲霞を眺めながら静かにただただゆっくり過ごすには最適な場所です。 サービスもアットホームで程よい距離感で接してくれます。宿泊可能人数が少ないので、まるでスタッフ付きの自分の別荘に泊まったかのような気分になります。 母屋にある部屋は天井が高く広々。全てガーデンビュー(絶景のマウンテンビューはプールとその脇のデッキから望めます)。当時から受継ぐ石のフローリングが特に素敵。天蓋付きのベッドは寝心地良し。エアコンはよく効きますが10月であれば不要。とにかく静かで虫と鳥の声しか聞こえません。 特筆すべきはバスルーム。市中のホテルの部屋がすっぽり収まるかのような巨大さ。モダンに改装されており、シャワーもバスタブも最新式。温水も十分出ます。 夕飯は母屋に付属のレストランにて。一部料理は少し時間を要するとのこと。事前にメニューを見て何時ごろに何を食べたいか伝えておくと良いでしょう。スタンダードな西洋料理(肉or魚)やパスタ・前菜がほんの数種類ある他、スリランカカレーを選べます。正直種類は限られていますが、自分が選んだスリランカカレーは満漢全席のように多種類のカレーが付け合せと共に供され、食べきれないほどでした。味もコロンボ市内の高級なレストランに負けないレベル。辛さは調整可(注文時に確認してくれます)。値段は2500-4000ルピーと決して安くはないですが、量と質を考えれば適正(カレーは2500)。 朝食もスリランカ式か西洋式か選べます。スリランカ式の場合はまた別の種類のカレー2,3種とミルクライスやホッパー等が供されます。伝統的なスリランカ式朝食です。 弱点はスパ施設。離れのログハウスで恐らく一度に一組だけ。一時間未満の短時間メニューのみ。アーユルヴェーダを満喫したい場合は市内のそうゆうお店で楽しんだほうが良いかも。それか予約時に問い合わせ・リクエスト等をすると良いかと思います。 長文になりましたが、市内の喧騒を離れてゆっくり過ごすには理想的な宿です。キャンディに来たときにはまた是非利用したいと思います。
