Great staff, comfy stay, small room (rm #108)
Posted Sep 22, 2015 on Hotels
Three people occupied the room for $102/- and the hotel provided us with 2 twin beds and a single bed. The room had a mini bar, Dialog Cable TV with 6-7 local channels (English/Sinhala/Tamil), on-and-off wifi (consistent in the lounge), 2 bed-sides, dresser/desk, a wardrobe, and a balcony facing the mountains. The bathroom was fair-sized and had a shower cubicle. Water heated up in seconds. They could improve the condition of the bathroom a bit. Although it was clean and tidy, water leaked to the bathroom from the shower cubicle. The air conditioner worked just fine but the fan didn't generate any wind - flaps aren't tilted properly. We didn't have a good view of the scenary although the hotel is located in a very scenic area in Kandy surrounded by mountains. You may request a room with a good view. The staff was extremely courteous and professional. The breakfast was good and they even offered to make an omlette. Breakfast included sausage, bacon, bread (different types), fruits, cereal, milk, juice etc. The restaurant has a great view of the mountains and the valleys. A trishaw (tuk-tuk) is available upon request and will charge LKR 200/- to get to the city centre/train station. It is difficult to walk to the hotel from the city unless you are comfortable with hiking/walking up the hills. it was a comfortable and quiet stay.
