The last review title "Disappointing" covers most points that we felt about this property... To be honest, this is a beautifully maintained and refurbished colonial house, the lawns around are lovely and the rooms are spacious. But aside from that, everything needs more attention. Apart from the dinner cost and lack of variety captured also in other reviews, we had... More

There's no denying that the Manor House hotel looks beautiful and has been well refurbished. When we arrived we were really pleased. The manager was friendly and welcoming, and we were impressed with the reception area which is very colonial. However, it kind of went downhill from there. If you want lunch or dinner, you need to let them know... More

As soon as you enter Manor House you get a feel that you have traveled back time. The artifacts date back to history and are very interesting, the decoration is splendid.

Excellent place to stay in Kandy if you have a car! The hotel has a small pool and the meals were served in the garden, lovely. The rooms are spacious with old furniture! The staff is friendly, the manager knows the name of the guests! Unique experience!

This hotel needs to decide what type of establishment it is and market itself properly. We should have stayed 8 nights and left after 5. It works fine as a stopover for one or two nights, indeed the grand historical setting is worth the visit. The rooms are spacious and the grounds delightful. I could have happily wandered or sat...

Dear Mr. Roger, Sorry to hear that you had short stayed your visit with us, even after upgrading to a Standard Suite, from your reserved standard double room, after your complaints about disturbances. Its unfortunate that you noticed our a-la-carte menu only on the last day. Sorry if our usually friendly staff had neglected you, while relaxing in the garden.... More

This is an old house brought up todate but still has a decor from the 1920's. Very freinedy staff and food is good but simple. Particuarly nice to eat out side for breakfast . Quiet location but nowhere to explore or walk except to go into Kandy

Manor House is a lovingly restored 19th century colonial mansion. The house and gardens are delightful - great to have breakfast in the garden. There is also a nice little swimming pool in the garden - refreshing after a day trekking round Kandy. Rooms on ground and first floors that we peeked into were spacious. Our room was on two...

Let's start with the good points. The house and garden are beautiful. It’s a big old colonial house, set away from the road in its own gardens and furnished (mostly) in keeping with the time period. Breakfast was excellent – sausage, egg, toast, juice, tea, coffee, fruit and Sri Lankan breakfast curry – and served in the sun in the... More
