Don't expect Five star rooms here but everything is there. Clean rooms, very supportive staf and a great kitchen. The views are spectaculair and the pool is great. We travel with our son of almost five years old and this place is absolutely kids friendly.

This is a beautiful hotel in the mountains 12km from Kandy. We were upgraded to an upstairs room with beautiful views for the first two nights and went to the standard room on the last night. It had the same facilities but was smaller and had no outlook. It was a pleasant room and adequate for the night but made...

There is nothing negative I can say about this place. 5 star service - the staff were so friendly, attentive and professional. Food was delicious and fresh! The surroundings and room were utter perfection. This isn't located close to the city but it is worth the commute for the hotel!

One of the best places we stayed on our travels around Sri Lanka. The service is second-to-none and nothing is too much trouble. Make sure you leave plenty of room for breakfast as it's abundant and delicious. The locations is remote which we enjoyed as it felt like a haven from the madness(in a good way) of the city. It...

Though we wanted a top floor room it was unavailable. However, it turned out to be a good thing for us as our daughter could freely leave the room and hang around in the garden. Service is extremely personalized and good. Veg food was good. We ordered Pasta and Soup which was quite good and the berakfast spread was great!...

Our party of seven (4 adults, 3 teenage boys) booked three nights at the Elegant Hotel on the basis of great TA reviews. We came with high expectations, and they were fully met by the hotel owner and his wonderful staff. It’s hard to do full justice to the amazing location and views from the hotel with photos. Our rooms...

After arriving at Kandy train station we took a taxi trip out of what is an otherwise chaotic city to the inviting Elegant Hotel that sits on top of a hill that has panoramic views of two lush valleys. The staff that greeted us were friendly and inviting, making us feel very special indeed. Our room was simple, yet very...

As it turned out we didn't really enjoy the hustle and bustle of kandy and the thought of returning to this peaceful, paradise high up the hills was blissful. The surroundings and views are so spectacular and the service in the hotel impeccable. The rooms are clean and roomy. I would hastily return.
