We were a group of 13 (3 families with 7 grown up kids ranging from 16-22 from Australia, US, & India). We rented 5 rooms. The rooms were spotless clean, very spacious, & modern (especially the bathrooms) . The staff were really friendly,...

As part of our tour my husband and I stayed at this run down awful hotel, it was our fault that it was booked for us as we went for the cheaper option hotel based on the reviews here on tripadvisor, our tour guide advised is against it because their previous clients had already given them negative feedback. Thank God...

We loved the hotel our room was large, beautifully clean, a very professionally run operation. They certainly captured the old colonial feel when they renovated. The coffee shop was great, nothing over stated, just good tastey food ,wonderfully Strong tea. All at a very reasonable price

We decided to stop for a nice cup of coffee, as they offered espresso and other standard types of coffee. The service was slow and what we got was not espresso, but nescafe. When I complained, the waiter insisted it was espresso and offered to show me their coffee machine. Obviously, it was nescafe. When I asked for our money...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the central hills in the heart of Kandy. at 1460' above sea level is a very special hotel. A hotel that doesn't sit on the landscape but is part of it. Hotel CASTELO is eco friendly with scenic surroundings and finds itself in an undisturbed locality. The lake view, mountainous surroundings and the cool breeze, coupled with a sip of freshly brewed tea and snacks in the garden are specialties only an environment such as Hotel CASTELO could offer. A colonial Bungalow with star comforts.We offer our clients a unique experience, which is value for money, not just a holiday but an experience of a life time. Fascinating blend of popular attractions, and a place where time stands still.This place is a location of captivating sunsets, early-morning mists and a relatively cool atmosphere, where temperatures average between 20-28C by day, and as low as 16C at night. Rest amidst the hotel privacy or enjoy refreshing hillside walks. A hotel of solid country traditions that would be just as much at home on a summer's day in the English Cottages or Country Clubs. ... more   less
