Not bad. Nalin, the assistant who is taking care t
It was huge rain day and foggy, we took sometimes to identify the direction to the place due to the heavy rain. A neighbor in the area gave a good information for us to reach there luckily. The signboard of "Skydale" wasn't there as see on the photo, I was a bit doubtful until Nalin came out to open the gate for us some minutes later. Nice view, good weather and cooling temperature and Nalin tried the best to serve. The minus points were breakfast, Nalin is the only one that doing the tasks, from registering to handling luggages, welcoming the guests, and cooking the breakfast. The breakfast wasn't bad but was just fine. I gave 4 out of 5 points due to the hardwork of Nalin & the view. We did talk to the lady owner and nothing more than just a chat.

view, rooom, service
The view is very nice. of course meanwhile, the location is not very convenient since it is on the top of the mountain. better not go out at night. the road is very narrow and a little difficult to find the place. room is very big. the stuff is nice. price is also ok.

Incredible view
view, very helpful staff, breakfast
We would definitely come back there, keeping in mind that this is a 2* property then I have to say everything was amazing there. Its on the top of the hill which is quite hard to get but all the tuk tuks reach it for about 400-500 (£2-£2.5) one way, about15 minutes ride from centre. Helpful staff, safe location, quite clean, free breakfast (fried egg + toasts with jam and butter + hot drink). Its located in quite a foresty part and we saw loads of lightning bugs flying outside of the window over night which was quite spectacular :)

million dollar view
view, bathtub, friendly staff
The view from our room/balcony was absolutely amazing. The hotel is quite high up on a hill overlooking the beautiful landscape. Breakfast was simple but nice. Staff was helpful and friendly. Only downside is the hellish tuk tuk ride (about 500 Rupees) up the hill to the hotel, but that's the price you pay for the view.

Perfect place with a fantastic view and hosts.
View, staff, value
Its located about 2 km from city center up on a hillside with a fantastic view over the surrounding nature and town. Getting there is tricky on the steep narrow roads so either you are a confident driver with a rental car yourself or get a local driver to take you there. Its a large private residence with 5 rooms to let, looks nice and very clean inside the rooms and common areas. Great view from every room, fantastic friendly hosts to take care of you, great breakfast, kitchen available if you need to use it. Rooms have AC for an extra charge but as its located so high then air is warm instead of hot so we did not need it. Only note is that wifi was not available as their monthly quota was full but no big problem. Definitely recommended!

Five stars!!
The view, food and service
Fantastic! Couldn't recommend Skydale more. It is a little way out of Kandy but is easy to get a tuk tuk into town. The peace and tranquility you get staying at Skydale is well worth the 10 min ride into the centre. Dashney and the team look after you so well and cook the most delicious food. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay earlier this week!
