Only stayed for one night but it was very comfortable and the staff very friendly . Food was excellent as was the wine. Situated on a hillside with fantastic views of Kandy and the mountains. Only thing lacking was electrical outlets in the room to charge camera batteries e,c.t. Lovely reception area with great views

We stayed here in November as part of our tour of Sri Lanka. The hotel had a corporate feel to it and the corridors were very noisy. That said the staff were very attentive. We did not eat as we fancied just relaxing with room service.

Located on top of the hill, the hotel offers a 360 degree view of the city, breath taking sunset! It also offers a wide range of local and international food. Staff were very accommodating and attended to my special request even after I checked out (1 week after), good costumer service! One thing I didnt like was the toilet/bathroom -... More

We were really suprised on the speedy service they provided. It's a lovely property with a wonderful view of the Kandy city. The rooms were clean, cozy and nicely arranged. We... More

Stayed here for one night as part of our Sri Lankan tour. The hotel is located at a dizzying height above the city of Kandy and needless to say the views are spectacular. Our room (121) was clean, modern and spacious. The bathroom was a little 'odd' I that the bath was accessed via a high step - not suitable... More

A beautifully located place. Has the most mesmerizing view from rooms. Though it's located up hill so is very far from the town. U will need a vehicle at ur disposal if you need to go to the market/town. Would recommend if you plan to be in the hotel all the time n enjoy the view. We had lunch in... More

Had been to Srilanka with Make my trip( India) so basically it was a group of 30 odd people. In that group,We were a group of friends with kids( 20) so it was going to be a noisy stay though for barely 36 hours. Slightly deviating but Make my trip is definitely not worth at all.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Topaz was built in 1976 and fashioned after a much loved gem stone found in Sri Lanka. Considering its situation in the hill capital of Kandy, the last royal stronghold in the country, Hotel Topaz is considered the jewel in the crown of Kandy.Nestled amidst lush tropical greenery, surrounded by the distinctive Knuckles Mountain range and Bible Rock, enveloped in the cool winds blowing through the mountains, Hotel Topaz offers something for everyone.The short distance away from the city centre itself, lends the hotel and its guests maximum accessibility no matter what the choice of activity is. However Hotel Topaz offers guests a tranquil setting and the option of exploring the city’s rich heritage in style and comfort.The warm and personal service serves to truly bring out the widely famed Sri Lankan hospitality. Guests at Hotel Topaz are made to feel at home, and explore the surrounding gardens or have a cocktail or high-tea on our famous rooftop terrace with its 360 degree view of the city and its hills. ... more   less
