    Amazing place with great service

    We loved our stay in cinnamon citadel Kandy. The service was excellent. Bhagya, Manjula, Thilina, Fashan and Arvinda were great hosts. We will definitely come back next year too.

    We had a lovely time here - a relaxing place to stay for a few days. Friendly staff and great food, although slightly confused by the multiple menus on offer. Rooms are dated but spacious and comfortable.

    Pretty setting.

    Cinnamon Citadel is a comfortable hotel, with lovely views of the river from the rooms and dining area. Our room was spacious and the pool was good. Breakfast was varied and tasty, but the dinner buffet was predictably stodgy and bland.

    Nice hotel right on the river

    I was only there for one night so didn't get to experience everything that the hotel had to offer. The rooms are very spacious and the king-size beds are very comfortable. Unfortunately it was raining when I was there so i couldn't make use of the balcony. Because of the rain I didn't get in the pool. It wasn't very big anyway and there were a lot of kids in there. I had some food and drinks at the bar area which were very reasonably priced and nice. I didn't go to the restaurant for dinner so can't offer an opinion on that. I did go to the restaurant for the buffet breakfast which had various offerings of Sri Lankan and Western foods. All of the staff were friendly and courteous.

    Cinnamon Citadel we love you!

    We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be very comfortable and pleasant. Our room was in the middle section overlooking the pool and had a lovely terrace with a view of the river. The staff were all helpful and friendly and breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. The hotel is a little way out from the town but very peaceful and surrounded by lovely scenery. We had dinner in the little cafe next to the pool and enjoyed it and on our last night, we sat in the open bar area and had cocktails while listening to a singer strangle a few songs. All part of the fun though, and we would definitely stay here again.

    We booked 2 rooms and stayed for 2 nights. Dealing with reception was very difficult, they provided 2 rooms on the lower level with no lift facility. It’s a struggle for older and walking disability people. Reception was not at all helpful to provide any alternate option on request to change floors. Wish staff at reception were politer and more accommodable. Room conditions is average compared to the hefty amount you pay for hotel booking. Views from lower level dwelling are just okay. Now for complimentary breakfast was good, the swimming pool was good. Ambience and view is good for people on the upper level.
