View, Location, Pool
We have stayed at Thilanka two years ago, and again in August this year, because of the great views of the lake and surrounds, the excellent location, an easy walk into town and back, and also a good value for money hotel. The buffet dinner and breakfast was also very good. Our room was more than comfortable, and the view from the pool amazing. The staff were helpful and friendly, however I think something is lacking at the front counter, a bit disorganised, over an hour to check in when we were the only ones in the lobby, and phone calls from our next destination weren't passed onto us, meaning we had to re-organise transport from there. But that aside we find Thilanka a very good hotel to spend when visiting Kandy.

No view of Kandy at all
One of the main sells with this hotel is that the hotel has a view over Kandy. This is not true. We were first put in a room that overlooked the car park. On top of this our room was at the end of the corridor where the light dos not work and there were leaks all over the floor outside the rooms. Oh and the key was temperamental! Nightmare in short and not what we expected. When we complained we were told that we could not move as there were no other rooms. We were moved the following morning (not ideal moving when we were only staying two days) and moved to a room overlooking the roof of the restaurant with a sliver of a view of the lake mainly blocked by the lake ( and I mean a sliver). In short all the rooms either face the back or the view is blocked by the restaurant / rooms on lower floors. We are low maintenance travellers but this was disappointing as the main market of the hotel is the view. The wifi is ok but unreliable at times. Pool is nice but not heated and so very cold. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the temple of the tooth.

Hotel with a view
Thilanka has a nice view over part of Candy. It is nice to see monkeys in the morning as well. The staff is very kind and helpful and the location only few minutes from the temple of the tooth relic. Only drawback is there s no wifi in the room

Not meet our expectation
We got a room that close to a pool area. It was a loud noise. The room was okay but staff in the hotel is not friendly. Food was pretty much cold and blend. I would not recommend this hotel.

Great hotel, great location, great facilities
Great place overall marred only by a weird smell emanating from the AC. The staff did their best to solve the problem though, so definitely plus points for service recovery.
