We were going from Trincomalee to Nuwara Eliya and our travel agent suggested that we stay overnight in Kandy and continue the journey next morning. We stayed at the Mahaweli Reach Hotel which completely spoiled our trip. Everything was bad, rooms, staff, food I can go on. The rooms had a musky mildew smell. The staff was extremely slow. I...

Nice location by the Mahaweli river. Pleasant and good staff. Good and nicely presented food too. Good sized swimming pool. Quite a small gym but it has friendly and helpful staff. Good place to hang out with friends for an evening.

Located next to the Mahewali River, the hotel has beautiful grounds and a lovely setting. The rooms and bathroom are spacious, very nice and clean. The restaurant offers excellent buffet both for breakfast and dinner. Staff provided excellent service throughout. The hotel truly gave us a very pleasant experience. Unfortunately, we stayed there only for one night.

My stay at this lovely hotel was very pleasant. Set beside the river, there is a colonial feel about it, with wide passages, delightful gardens and many open spaces. My room was large and light filled but lacked attention to detail. For example, the coffee and tea box was empty! The buffet was a little different and a welcome change....
