Great Choice in Kandy
Wonderful rooms and hospitality overlooking the city. Would highly recommend. The hotel manager was fantastic and very accommodating. Meals were good. We were a large party and had much of the hotel to ourselves in the main building (there is another across the street).

Disliked: Amenities
All rooms had balconies with a pleasant view. We saw lots of monkeys frolicking on the roofs of adjacent buildings. Not much in the way of grounds or other facilities but the lobby was comfortable.
