Great rooms very clean and comfortable, staff were also very welcoming and helpful. We had a wonderful stay, the hotel is located in a quiet residential area which was lovely and relaxing, nice to be a little bit outside the hussle and bustle of the city centre.

There are different common resting area, spacious & well decorated. Friendly & smiley staff. Our TV was not working the first night but it was fixed the next day. Location is a bit far from Kandy city but it is quite and comfy. The bed is also comfy but there is noise when turning on the bed! Overall, very good and recommended!

Great find!
This boutique hotel was perfect for our overnight stay in Kandy. Note that this hotel is not in a central location, but is in what appears to be an upscale neighbourhood close to the river. Everything about the hotel appears to be new and modern with great en-suite bathrooms and comfortable beds. Currently no onsite restaurant, but food can easily be ordered in by the very friendly staff. Would highly recommend for those looking for a quiet place to stay.

Great place!
Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The hotel is full of character and the room was very comfy. Amazing breakfast. They also let us use the microwave to make popcorn :) A little bit out of Kandy but affordable tuk tuks into the city.
