We were warmly welcomed by the hosts. Nice large room but we were allocated an internal room which wasn’t specified on the agoda booking.
Nice large bathroom but there was a smell of damp in the room
We booked it mainly for a pool day but the pool in the photo is actually more

Dear lorraineh357, Thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us in making sure that we are able to offer all our guests a memorable stay experience. My staff and I have already discussed the concerns raised in your review and in the process have been able to modify our policies to ensure that we are able to cater to the needs of our guests better. I am pleased to inform you that we are introducing an all-day dining menu so that guests will not be subject to the 4pm pre-order time. We hope that this would offer guests more flexibility and choice in dining. Let me also apologize for not being able to serve alcohol within our premises. Sri Lanka has very strict regulations on such matters and the proximity of our hotel to leading schools and religious sites has been delaying this process. We are working with the respective authorities to resolve this concern at the earliest. We have also looked into the other matters raised by you and is working to rectify them as soon as possible. Once again thank you very much for choosing to stay with us and we hope that we are able to offer you a better experience the next time you visit Kandy. Thank you, Shantha

Really liked this place, the cricket ground is nowhere near Kandy but the location of this hotel really was perfect to get in from a day out, have a rest in the pool and then head out for dinner and drinks. If I ever have to go back to Kandy (hopefully not) I'd happily stay here.

Kandy is hectic! But you can escape that here at Sevana. It looks as if it’s a couple of buildings joined together, which makes for a funky layout. The staff here are super friendly and welcoming, even going so far as to give us umbrellas to use during the torrential downpour.

We have just checked out of here. The hotel was fine for one night but I wouldn’t be keen to stay for any longer! Our room had no windows and was so damp the sheets felt wet and there was a terrible smell in the room. The actual room itself and bathroom were nice and spacious tho

Dear Deeos1, Thank you very much taking time to review us on TripAdvisor. Your feedback is extremely valuable for us as we are able to identify areas that we could improve and ensure that we are able to offer the highest standards for our future guests. My team and I looked into the concerns raised by you and have already taken measures to manage the humidity in our Inside Deluxe rooms especially in light of the heavy rains Sri Lanka has been experiencing and as this room category does not have windows to offer complete privacy. In the meantime we are glad that you enjoyed the other elements of you stay and we sincerely look forward to welcome you again. Thank you, Shanth

Hi. We will be arriving at the airport at 3.30am and will be coming directly to Kandy and arriving around 6.30am (we hope). My question is - do you have a 24 hour reception which will enable us to get into a room for a couple of hours sleep.. We realise that we will have to pay for the full night. Thanks.
It should not be a problem as they serve breakfast. There is a 24 hour reception and it is only a 10 minute walk from the bus and train station
