This hotel is a few minutes out of Kandy city centre which we thought would be a bit of an inconvenience, turned out to be a blessing, it was just a short ride into town which was a fun ride in a tuk tuk that the hotel organises for you. The rooms were amazing, the breakfast was great and was...

Booked for two nights in February. Arrived with great difficulty finding the place. Up an extremely steep hill a long way from Kandy. Even steeper drive to the hotel entrance. No one in sight when we arrived. Looked around and all looked a bit dirty and shabby. No grounds so nowhere to sit outside except balcony. When a member of...

we stayed over there for 3 nights just before New year 2014/15- Kandy is quite rainy (still worth it so!) but this place was really good: some beautiful rooms and amazing staff ready to do anything to accomodate our noisy family (10 of us, 3 generations)- really recommended- Annabel

I know it's too late to rite this review as I stayed in this hotel 1 year back in February 2014. It was the first day of our honeymoon and we had a great start. Courteous staff, delicious food, lovely room and awesome ambiance. I would definitely stay here again if I re-visit Kandy :)

I had a Sri Lanka Rough Guide edition from year 2012, and this hotel is not mentioned there. So I guess it is quite new in town and even tuk-tuk drivers couldn't always find the place at the first place. We were offered upgrade without charge for suite room, but we had to decline, cos the suite room didn't had...

This is situated in an amazing location, up a somewhat scary tiny road raked very steep at the end. But what a view across to the other side of the valley!
