The roof terrace was nice as it gave a great view of the lake and temple. Our room was very clean, we had a good night stay here. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the hotel was clean and tidy. We booked a lake view room which had a lovely outlook - though beware no matter where you seem to stay in Sri Lanka you will be woken by the call to prayer at 6am so take ear plugs. Our room had a balcony, and the warnings for monkeys should be taken seriously as we woke up to them running around outside every day (stealing whatever is left around). Our room also had a window facing into the hotel, it had blinds so privacy was fine but meant we did have bright lights shining in our room during the night - fine for us as we had sleep masks. The pool on the roof is lovely, cold and refreshing! We had the breakfast each day which was great, lots of fruit, toast and some Sri Lankan options too. The hotel is also really handy for walking into the centre of Kandy, about 5-10 mins - just head down the steep path next to the hotel.

The actual location of the hotel is down a narrow path next to a temple so it can be missed. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. There small improvements that could be made to the room in terms of space to store your luggage or table space in the room. Overall the experience with our stay was good.
