Excellent food and great hotel. Guests said this was not a resort (which is what they were expecting), but they enjoyed their stay.

Wonderful. We loved the Elephant Stables, it was magical. Beautiful room, lovely food, view over Kandy (especially at night) and the staff.

some of the upkeep could be improved like the timber decking around the pool but the service was outstanding.

Beautiful rooms and excellent personal service. Just the sort of small boutique hotel we like.
