Good touring hotel, but not a rural retreat.Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: Staff service, room size and cleanliness.
Cons: Fixtures and fittings: balcony door lock was not secure, bathroom tiles a mess, floor was grubby.
Location: Its a half hour of slow traffic into Kandy where the Buddhist temple and lakeside are the first sites, and then another half hour out the other side.
We booked this hotel thinking it was a a quiet hillside retreat out of Kandy town, but found it to be a large coach-tour stopover above a noisy road. The staff were great: very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious and the bed was comfy, although the bathroom and other furniture was jaded. WiFi worked well and it was a bonus that our driver could stay at the hotel for free. We had the standard room, a long walk from reception and there was plenty of greenery outside the balcony. There is a small lawn but accessed from the restaurant and some 'rest areas with benches and pool area. It's kinda cute that the place is built on and into a hill so that rocks appear everywhere inside the building, but not when a slab of granite, irrigation systems and chicken-wire fencing is most of your view from the window. Food was mediocre (as at other tourist stops around the area). While there was plenty of wildlife sounds outside at night there was also an intrusive amount of road noise morning and evening. We were there three nights but most others seemed to have only one night, and it was especially popular with coach parties. So, not as peaceful a retreat from the bustling city as the map location and photos might make you think.

A Beautiful HotelPosted Mar 27, 2015
Pros: Architectural Design.
Location: Our favourite was the Botanical Gardens.
A well positioned hotel on the edge of the City superbly laid out. A lovely room and bathroom, the swimming pool perfect and dining was a pleasure as well. We will recommend to friends and hope we will return.

Nice facilities, staff needed some helpPosted Feb 9, 2015
Pros: The views and the dinner buffet were good. The grounds were nice.
Cons: The staff training.
The hotel is very nice. The room and facilities were great. However, the staff weren't very well trained and clearly accustomed to people on organized tours. When we needed a taxi for a tour of town, this seemed to be hard for them. They also made simple mistakes on two occasions regarding hotel charges. Everybody was very nice, just not the kind of service I am used to.

Beautiful settingPosted Dec 27, 2014
Pros: The breakfast and evening meal in the restaurant is a buffet style, the food was excellent and varied.
Cons: A second bar area. When the hotel is full as was the case during some days of our stay the main bar was really full and crowded.
Location: Location was beautiful, and the grounds were stunning. Plenty to see but transport would be required
Spent 6 nights here, the setting was fantastic, the pool area was lovely. Most rooms are a long way from the main body of the hotel, this was not a problem to us, however people with poor mobility could struggle. It is away from the town so would need transport to and from hotel, tuk-tuk's and taxis are usually available outside, and are very reasonably priced.

Great Hotel.Posted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: The staff !!
This was our first time to Kandy and the Earls Regency was recommended to us by a friend. We stayed here for two nights on our tour of Sri Lanka. The hotel itself is in a beautiful setting positioned in the mountains with every window having a lovely view.This hotel is simply amazing. The property and views are gorgeous, the staff are all so friendly and extremely helpful. And the rooms are very comfortable and very clean.

Nice Hotel but unprofessional staffPosted Jun 2, 2014
Cons: Attitude of the staff.
We had to wait for more than an hour to take our car out to go out for dinner. The Manager had to personally intervene. The staff who were handling valet-parking were very unprofessional. They were very arrogant and unhelpful. I will not stay here again since there are much better hotels in Kandy which has better service. Hotel room and the facilities are good but the staff is not professional.

호수가 보였으면 좋앟을 텐데 좀 아싑지만 다른 호텔 기준 대비 숙박 할만합니다.
