4/10 Fair

NOT a 5 star hotel. 3 star more like.
Check-in was slow, and no welcome drinks (unusual for a "5 star" holiday resort). Receptionist (a young guy) offered to take us to the room, but walked very slowly. As soon I got to the room, I saw plenty of mosquitoes and little insects on the white wall, I probably killed 20-25 of them using tissues before the bell boy had delivered the suitcases. Tiny bottles of unbranded shampoo and shower gel, barely enough for one wash for one person, we called to ask for some more, but never arrived. Glad we got spares in our wash bags. Sleep was ok (I did kill dozens of mosquitoes after all). Breakfast was not great, lack of choices and poor quality. Not a five star hotel. Wouldn't recommend.

Earl’s Regency - two nights in Kandy
The service provided by the staff was second to none. I want to especially mention Gayan at the lounge, one of the loveliest and friendliest people we have met, he gave us the best and most personalized service. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful, it is like being in a movie! Great views, clean, comfortable and the staff is super!

10/10 Exceptional

This hotel was amazing, we ended up leaving from another hotel even before checking in due to the staff being so unprofessional and mind you that was also a 5 star rated hotel in the area. Earls was amazing, the lobby manager walked us personally to the room showed us around the hotel and every-time he would see us would walk up and asked if we were happy with our stay. It was truly a pleasure staying at this place, plus their internet speed was really good. Something we look for while traveling.

Lovely hotel with smiley staff and amazing food. Facilties are good and location is good but you will need to get a tuk tuk into Kandy. Standards in the hotel are high.As somebody who has worked in food mangament I was very impressed with nightly buffet.Shame oir trip was cut very short by corona virus.
