Swimming pool, wifi, games, bar etc. The restaurant was horrible. Local naff band walking around the tables, slow service and packed with westerners. However, the breakfast was...

Stayed 2 nights on a tour and found hotel quite average. Rooms are fine but noisy due to random service phones constantly ringing, restaurant chairs and grills in bathroom into echoey corridor. Pool is not great for a relaxing afternoon but fine to cool down after a day out. Food and service in restaurant was great with live bands playing...

We have stayed two nights in this hotel. The area of Kandy is not really our favourite area, but it was part of the tour. The hotel is pretty close to the center of Kandy so you can go there easily. The hotel itself was average, the beds are OK. The overall impression is that it could use an improvement...

it wasn't too far from the city so decided to stay in this hotel, as we didn't have any prior bookings anywhere. staff was friendly and the food was good. calm and quite. Bit of a old building if i'm not mistaken and had some warning on the windows about monkey's. overall the experience was good.
