Great location of the restaurant on top of the hotel, overlooking Kandy town. Stunning sunset. Fresh juices are delicious. Sri Lankian traditional food was freshly prepared for us, very tasty, nicely presented. I would think the new Swiss management shows impact.

The food food selection from the menu was a good variety and well priced. They also offered a lunch buffet containing local dishes. Add to this a fantastic view of the mountains, and this is a worthwhile place to visit.

The food is over priced and not tasty. We had to wait an hour for our food and there were no other customers, it was 15:30. The vegetable noodles were bland and the vegetable curry looked impressive but it was not very tasty. Avoid this...More

The room was cheap, in a double meaning... At least clean, sort of. Overpriced breakfast, and eventually an unsuccessful attempt in screwing us over 1200 SLR when checking out. Just don't, there certainly is better things out there.

Here's a brief summary of our stay: Rooms - quite clean, big and many with balcony. There was hot water, but almost no pressure. Surroundings - its about a 10 minute walk to the start of the main part of town. There is a lot...More
