Visited Hotel Topaz for 2 days, pleasant stay, nice pool, rooms sufficient. Dining area a little tired i.e. frayed napkins but staff ever so friendly. Food adequate but nothing to write home about especially after our experiences in other Sri Lankan hotels which have been amazing.

My first reaction was very negative. The publicity material I saw said that it was near the centre of Kandy which I assumed to mean within walking distance. It is not. It is a few kms up very steep hills which you could not possibly do walking. The Hotel provides a free shuttle service into town but there are very...

We stayed for only one night as part of an organised tour but would have readily stayed longer. We were lucky enough to be given a room upgrade for which we were very appreciative. The staff are friendly, courteous and helpful. Pool looked inviting but the steps down and back would have rendered us unable to continue without a long...

Lovely hotel with a great view and comfortable stay; spacious room with large picture window and modern amenities. The location is not very convenient for those who would like to roam around the city as the hotel is located on the top of the hill and surrounded by mountain range.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Topaz was built in 1976 and fashioned after a much loved gem stone found in Sri Lanka. Considering its situation in the hill capital of Kandy, the last royal stronghold in the country, Hotel Topaz is considered the jewel in the crown of Kandy.Nestled amidst lush tropical greenery, surrounded by the distinctive Knuckles Mountain range and Bible Rock, enveloped in the cool winds blowing through the mountains, Hotel Topaz offers something for everyone.The short distance away from the city centre itself, lends the hotel and its guests maximum accessibility no matter what the choice of activity is. However Hotel Topaz offers guests a tranquil setting and the option of exploring the city’s rich heritage in style and comfort.The warm and personal service serves to truly bring out the widely famed Sri Lankan hospitality. Guests at Hotel Topaz are made to feel at home, and explore the surrounding gardens or have a cocktail or high-tea on our famous rooftop terrace with its 360 degree view of the city and its hills. ... more   less
