          Enjoyed the 2 nights here ”
          + Room size - Huge + Nice to control all lights from one panel at your bed side + Decent view + Buffet breakfast with enough options for vegetarian - Paid 360 LKR for just one large battle of water which is ridiculous since this is almost priced 4 times compared to market price. - Need to contact reception for access to mini fridge which seems unnecessarily complicated - Hotel doesn't have tie up with any car transport with tuk tuk being recommended. Quite shocking to see that coming from a 5* hotel - Pizza delivery was not allowed even to lobby. Ended up walking to main gate. - Though hotel location is attractive, it's location isn't really favorable for transport. - Half of the room had wet dampness smell Overall we enjoyed the two nights here with slight inconvenience as stated above..

          Hotel is nice and new. The gym closes already at 8 pm which is way too early. To get access I spoke to manager and he opened it up for me in the evening. Could just keep it as 24h open guys, no need to have an instructor there the whole time! Too bad no sauna or steamroom even it's suppose to be 5 star facility.

          We're blessed to have met Mr Amit as I had been attacked by leaches and he generously offered medicine and free laundry to clean the blood, Chayani has upgraded us for free with a sugar free cake twice for our honeymoon, Nizam and Malith have treated us like king and queen in the restaurant, and the gym was brand new! We felt far away from the city even though the location was a 15-minute walk away from the Tooth Temple. The only weird thing was this spacious empty hotel being somehow closed on every side, making me feel somewhat claustrophobic until the last night where we could shift to a balcony room. What we lived the most was the balcony rooms o overlooking

          Loved the hotel, but there was a hot water problem at night”
          Loved the hotel, beautiful view overlooking Kandy city, great staff, good food, super clean and great facilities. Just one problem upset me - there was no hot water at night. Called the engineer, he came and tried to fix it. It got better, but not completely. In the morning, water was nice and hot again. Was not sure what happened. But the view from the balcony is breathtaking and breakfast was delicious!

          Beautiful apartment convenient location”
          This is a beautifully presented apartment located centrally in Colombo. All modern conveniences and a wonderful swimming pool complex below make this perfect for younger families. Sadly we didn’t have time to make use of the many amenities available. One thing that we weren’t used to was that power is paid separately based on usage. Also we encountered separate wall switches to turn on and off hot water heating to each bathroom and the kitchen. Otherwise we would happily stay here again. Mary was really welcoming and warm. She made sure we were able to let ourselves into the building lobby without trouble. A great place!

          Best of all the places we stayed. Main highlight was the staff & service. Front staff was so attentive. Specially the small girl who was at the front took extra care to cater our family. Skinny bartender who worked at the bar was so knowledgeable. He knew exactly what I was talking about specially in Sri Lanka it was difficult to find someone who knew Western taste & mixology:) Rooms were so big & spacious. Facilities are faultless. Next time you book say Latte from Anuradhapura sent you & am sure the team will look after you ppl! Enjoy!

          The room was clean, with a beautiful view over the mountains and city. The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough for you. Breakfast was ample and the choices changed daily. I would highly recommend eating at the restaurant in the evening - the food was amazing! Made our very wet, rainy stay in Kandy enjoyable!

          We planned a one night trip to Kandy and to our misfortune, we decided to stay at The Grand Kandyan. It was probably the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. We checked in around 3 pm and went to have our lunch. The waiter did more than what his job required him to. He started advising us on how much to eat! And he came up with a theory that we being Indians will not like non spicy food. The service is extremely slow. The air conditioning is turned on only when requested. The lighting (at dinner) is extremely poor. We ordered for pasta and spaghetti- both were served in kid portions. No kidding, Spaghetti aglio olio had no garlic. Don’t ask me what else it had. We are still trying to figure it out. Next to the rooms. We had reserved two rooms. One was fine but the other was extremely smelly- it was smelling like a hospital. After the slow service and response we met at the restaurant, we decided to not complain. The best was their check out process/ team. We were planing to go to r

          Wow a very nice Hotel, Very Friendly Staff, Very Good Food, The Food was very Tasty and at very reasonable prices. The Breakfast buffet covered almost all my needs. They did not charge for my 10 year old daughter. I was surprised when I saw the bill. Altogether we got a marvelous deal, all round all four of us were pleased with our stay. My next visit to Kandy I will stay at The Grand Kandyan Hotel for sure.
