8/10 Very Good

Great value
The room is really clean and comfortable, with good AC and a great shower. But it's a little far outside of the center, which makes going out late at night a bigger hassle.

A pleasant stay
I only stayed here for one night, but I enjoyed my stay. I was given a room on the top floor (I don't know if I was given a free upgrade or not, but it was a nice room) and so it had decent views of the valley area there from the balcony. The room had A/C, tv with cable, a ceiling fan and a hair dryer, shampoo & it had all the room amenities you'd need. The room didn't include breakfast as many places here usually do, but that's ok. The shower was leaky in that it let water out all over the floor despite the shower door being closed, so there was a big puddle I walked out to. I ended up throwing all the towels on the floor to soak it up. The hotel is on a steep winding incline atop its own mini hill. It's not especially close to town center, though it is walkable in 20-30 minutes. It's a bit closer to the Sacred Tooth Temple. The front desk and management were very friendly and helpful. The one weird thing about being on the top floor (and it's a walk elevator) is that the floor was basically two guest rooms and these offices built out into its sort of lobby (photos attached). It's just odd to know you're walking out of your room into an office environment. But it was a good place to stay.

This is my second visit to the facility. Food choices were basic, would not plan on eating there due to limited menu. Food itself tasted basic, nothing to write home about. Room and bathroom was clean, the A/C unit leaked water to the floor on my 2nd day. Location is good. This should be a 3 star facility, not 4.

just about adequate
overall, it was a decent stay. I was disappointed with how crammed the room was. just not enough space to feel comfortable. you would easily run into a piece of furniture if you weren't very careful. the view is nice but unremarkable. the best thing about the room was the bathroom. new fittings, clean, well appointed. oh, there is no elevator, by the way. the service was decent and the people were nice.

Friendly hotel in great location
A 200m walk to Kandy's central lake this was an ideal base to explore the city and the region.

Hotel yo
The manager was very friendly and enjoyed a long conversation with him. Only down side was that when i booked the hotel on it said complimentary breakfast was included but disappointingly was told by hotel it isn't and that they got it wrong?! Also because i didn't have a printout of my booking and and had an email to show they couldn't do anything :(
