This is an entirely unique experience. We stayed in the tower rooms used in the past by the owners to survey the surrounding Padi fields. The waiter of Portuguese descent couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The local lady who seemed ever present was so kind to us from the moment we arrived. We were given a tour of...

I have stayed at hotels all over the world - in 5 continents, and this is by far the most hospitable place I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The Manor House is about 5km away from the Kandy city center, and is located close to a public bus stop where you can easily reach the city. The...

As in most parts of the world...the people are the best part. The manager and Noel, who served our meals, were engaging and informative. The housekeeper is adorable and fun. The rooms are beautiful and rustic. The one in the front can be a little noisy if the other guests decide to enjoy the front veranda at night. The tower...

The building is incredibly impressive and we stayed in one of the towers. It was a bit of a challenge stumbling out of the tower to use the bathroom at night, but overall it was a cool experience. This is definitely a good spot if you are staying in the Kandy area for a night or two. We used it...

It was really a wonderful time spent in this glamorous location. Specially, all the staff were friendly and all of them tried their best to make sure we are having a great time there. I will definitely visit again with family and friends also.

We stayed in many fabulous places in Sri Lanka on our recent family holiday and we rank the Manor House as one of the very best because of its unique character and service. The Manor itself is beautifully maintained in its original olde worlde style and set in a lovely garden where the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast is served each...

This hotel is a romantic place to stay in Kandy. Me and my boyfriend loved our room, we stayed in the one of the tower rooms. Our room was comfortable and relatively clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

My partner and I stayed at the Manor House for 2 nights during our Kandy exploration period in Sri Lanka, midway through our trip. The only bad thing about our stay was the fact we couldn't extend it due to our scheduling constraints! The mansion is beautiful, the service excellent - special mention to Noel for always taking good care...

Situated in a dark back-alley of Kandy this so called Manor house is an absolutely terrible place to visit let alone stay at. Starting off with the condition of the hotel itself, the place has completely fallen apart. By my best guess no renovation work has been done for the last two decades or so. As an additional bonus the...

This mansion is absolutely wonderful. Our first stop in Sri Lanka, and it will be hard to beat it! The home cooked meals and the fresh fruits from the garden were a treat. The establishment has really kept the old mansion as it was and it feels like walking through a time machine. Worth a visit!
