Stayed for 4 nights and we were very impressed by the quality of this boutique hotel, everything from the food to the facilities was first class.

Used this small delightful hotel as a base for exploring Kandy and nearby~ish tourist sites. It's a great escape from the rigours of SriLankan travel. Set on a high North-South ridge it affords fantastic views of sun-rises and sunsets. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful. Good interactions with other guests, good value. Highly recommended.
