Very good 8.0
Nice spacious rooms
The hotels first impression is excellent, a beautiful grand reception with traditional music being played to welcome you. The rooms are extremely spacious. The bed was too hard for my liking. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Only one restaurant was a negative. It was a huge buffet with lots of choice but the food was Luke warm.

Our stay at this hotel was absolutely amazing!! We put simply, loved it . The hotel is spectacular - gold adornments everywhere even including a gold waste bin in our unit! The hotel had great amenities including a café where we enjoyed a pot of Ceylon tea and a cappuccino , an infinity pool which was spectacular with views off into the forest and mountains and a scrumptious restaurant where we had breakfast and dinner everyday. It was spectacular in its positioning - you look out over panoramic views of Kandy, and the buffet both at breakfast and dinner was worthy of being featured in the pages of a cooking magazine! Infact I did take pictures of the buffets that we experienced, not only was the range of foods offered amazing and wide and varied (something to accommodate all eaters, even fussy ones too) they were in abundance and displayed beautifully from a sweets table that should be featured on a cooking show with chocolate fondue fountain to a chef cooked area that will for example, cook you your own individual poached eggs etc. I am a Coeliac and I was taken on a special tour with a chef from the Golden Crown Hotel to show me exactly what I could have from the buffet that was gluten free, and not only that, I was given special entrees that were made especially for me from the head chef and also I was given gluten free bread that was made especially for me on both breakfast days that we had at this wonderful hotel. The staff were so friendly, eager to please and genuine

Good option for a night in Kandy
Great hotel with comfortable rooms. The hotel is around 1 year old, but hasn’t been built to a very high standard so seems a bit tatty in areas. The buffet breakfast and dinner was massive and the variety of food overwhelming, however most of the food was cold which is a shame. The pool was very nice and the gym was really well equipped and spacious. We only stayed here one night and had a driver so the location was fine for us as it was fairly close to the main attractions. If I was returning to Kandy I would likely stay again.

Large hotel in a beautiful setting
Absolutely massive room. Brand new and had everything needed including a double spa bath. Breakfast was extensive with a variety of food on offer. Lovely cool drink and cold towel on arrival and an unexpected package consisting of fruit, breads and water was presented to us on departure. On the down side, the air conditioning was not on when we got to our room and then took ages to cool it down. The person who showed us to our room and explained facilities did not show us air con or open the bathroom door. Once we opened the door we knew why! It absolutely stunk of sewerage. It spoilt our stay and mad3 us feel quite nauseous.

It is a beautiful, modern hotel just over a kilometre away from Kandy city. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff especially the travel desk staff are extremely helpful and always ready to assist. The only drawback we had was we were given a smoking room although stated non smoking in our booking. Nonetheless we had an amazing stay.

Fair 4.0
Two night stay
For the price I paid this hotel was over rated and breakfast was not included. No information on the hotel services was available in room. When I asked at the front desk I was told to go to internet. Not very helpful. Buffet was good. However when I asked for a glass of water I was told I had to buy a bottle. Strange when water is complimentary in room. The mini fridge in room was not cold. Bed was very comfortable. Pool was clean. In room tea was Dilmah English breakfast. Not tasty and a poor option considering what the country has to offer. I saw other guests receiving much better service and even gifts from hotel. Perhaps the least expensive room occupants don't qualify for good service?

Brand new and beautiful hotel with lovely views to the rice paddies and hills. Relax a few kilometres out of Kandy. The rooms are clean, spacious and very well appointed. The buffet is delicious with many, many different choices making the half board a good option for food. We enjoyed a walk around the picturesque local area and village. Some finishing off building work is still being completed but this is not intrusive. Tuk tuks and taxis readily avl to go into town. We very much enjoyed our stay and the staff are friendly and capable.

Fabulous Hotel
A palatial hotel, with awesome staff and delicious food! We were welcomed with Kandyan drummers and delicious fruit juice to quench our thirst. Then we were shown to our room, a junior suite,750 sq. ft of luxury! The infinity pool is beautiful and sitting outside by the bar with the breeze blowing was heavenly! Ravi at the restaurant was very helpful and attended to all our needs.
