An absolute treat to be a guest in this Hotel”
We thoroughly enjoyed 6 nights in Kandy and our choice of Hotel made our stay VERY special. The facilities, the ambiance, the quality of food, the friendly staff, and the views were SUPER. We also appreciated the Live Entertainment each evening. Being visitors from Australia we enjoyed seeing the Sri Lankan Weddings that were taking place in the Hotel. Our stay in this Hotel truly enhanced our Kandy stay, and we were treated as though we were special. (Which of course we are!) I need to mention that the gift shop in the foyer was really worth visiting as well. The towel animals on our bed are also worth mentioning.There were 4 of us in our group and we would all highly recommend this hotel to our friends.
After staying in a few tuly awful places at around the same price, the Golden Crown was a welcome surprise. It is a bit out of town but we did manage to walk it. It was built less than a year ago and has a fabulous infinity pool and adjacent restaurant where we had one of our best meals in Sri Lanka. Room was equally good. The only negative was the check in process which took about 20 mins. I think they were trying to make it seem a luxury experience by making us sit on lounges and drink unwanted juices. Management please note..you need to streamline check in...most people arriving have been on a long hot drive and just want to get into their rooms. Thanks though for a great stay.
This is a beautiful hotel. The pool and bedrooms are breathtaking. The staff went above and beyond, it is slightly out of town so we didn’t venture into kandy but used it as a stop over place between other destinations anyway. The only complaint was that there is no spa area, only massage and treatment rooms. And the bar is very small and therefore busy. Overall excellent value for money and a beautiful hotel
Very new 5* hotel slightly out of town”
This place is enormous and the building, room, pool, outside bar, inside bar, breakfast buffet and dinner buffet are excellent. It’s absurd they charge extra for a latte on top of the buffet price! My junior suite bathroom smelled strongly of sewage when I checked in. I suspect the room had not been occupied for a long time. Covering the toilet, bathroom floor, shower and bath drains with wet towels blocked the smell. The place is a bit out of town, too far for walking for most, but there are tuk tuk and drivers galore in Kandy. I’d stay again.
New, grand hotel in convenient location ”
Really nice hotel, very new and large. Near a Kandy lake. Comfortable beds and large room. Good breakfast. Highly recommended.
large rooms friendly staff”
The hotel is not in Kandy. Traffic can be horrendous but a good base. Hotel has an Arabic rather than local atmosphere.
It’s a fairly new property and hence everything works. The art decor on the walls is good and the sky lounge is a pretty nice place to chill with some excellent views to soak in . The rooms are spacious and excellent for families with small kids. The staff is pretty helpful with a positive attitude. On the flip side, the property is about 1.5 km from the city center and a little bit out of the way. One thing the hotel should work on is to provide an improved room service menu as the options are very limited now. I would definitely recommend this property for families with young children and more senior people.
Like so many other large hotels, this one thrives on group parties and conferences with all of the attendant crowds and very loud noise. We had to change rooms because we could hear and feel the music and talking from the loud conference/party being held within the hotel itself. For $200 a night (cash only), this is unacceptable. You are better off staying in a $30 guesthouse and that's what we will do next time. Also, this hotel abuts a village where they burn their trash and loud stray dogs bark incessantly, which you will hear in your room very early in the morning. The city center is several kilometers away. It's definitely overpriced for Sri Lanka, too.
Nice pool, view and food ”
The food pool view and service were great the rooms were clean and spacious. Although the hotel is new the bathrooms are already starting to look a bit worn. There are no umbrellas by the pool and the rooms are not very sound proof so keep this in mind. Other than that an enjoyable stay
better than expected”
many of hotels in Sri lanka are rather run down but this hotel was new and clean. Room was also very spacious after upgrade. Loved view from restaurant and bar on the 2nd flr. Hoped we could get the discount from spa. Buffet was not bad with good variety.
Excelent hotel, very friendly staff with beautiful location”
Friendly staff wanting to make you have a good time, the hotel is wonderful with stunning views, in a special enclave with views as very few can afford, it is one of the most beautiful hotels I have been in, the unbeatable breakfast, the perfect attention, the excellent cleaning, the spectacular views, Highly recommended!!!
Truly a five star hotel ”
Of all the five star hotels we tried in Sri Lanka, this was actually 5-star! The accommodations are clean, comfortable, new, and luxurious. The service was A+ and the food was excellent. If we have to find something to complain about the SPA felt a little makeshift. All in all we had three fantastic evenings at this hotel.
New Hotel, best service for money!”
Relatively new hotel, but extremely good hotel. Big room, Big Washroom and Big Balcony with great view. Great Swimming Pool and excellent view of the restaurant. I hope that they don't lower down their customer service standards over time.
Beautiful facilities, underwhelming staff”
This is a beautiful hotel, however the set up of it is slightly confusing. The rooms are extremely spacious, the buffet was excellent. But the front staff and floor staff was slightly rude and not the greatest. The food staff was great however. I would recommend staying. The Gym facility was great as well!
Great stay ”
Fantastic hotel, value for money. Food was delicious as well as very attentive and accommodating staff. The views are amazing from the hotel, especially the swimming pool. Areas are clean and rooms are spacious.
It was a new and nice hotel in the middle of the city. Yet it was very quiet. The staff was very attentive, nice and helpful. I highly recommend it. I don't think the pictures look as nice and the real hotel.
Good hotel, comfortable bedding”
I chose this hotel given it's only one year + old. The hotel guestroom is well fitted out with good shower facilities and bedding is very comfortable. The staff was friendly and enthusiatic. The R&B manager and front desk manager walked around from time to time to talk to guests and provided good advice. One less satisfactory thing is about the intermittent power outage at times and I guess that's to do with the city's insufficient power supply.
Greet location ”
Comfortable and clean hotel with nice room Staff friendly and helpful Greet location and hotel closed to shopping area and restaurants
Not a five star at all. Need facility and staff improvement. Food was very good with very courteous.”
While the rooms are comfortable and large. The hotel lacks five star facilities. There is only one restaurant and no 24hour coffee shop. No shopping stores. Buffet foods was very good with lot of variety. It’s a new property and lacks staff but the existing one are very courteous.
The best company the best service they are very friendly very kind ”
The hotel is amazing, the view is breathtaking i loved the hotel and my rooms
