            The central location and the buffet was excellent.

            See above.

            Really liked our room - large and airy - but could probably have done with a lick of paint.

            7.4

            The colonial architecture and ambiance

            The contition of the facilities are prety old - the hotel would need a renovation

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            The location was good, central, but still slightly removed from the main hustle and bustle of Kandy.

            Definitely past it's prime and could do with a bit of tlc, faded glory are the words that spring to mind!

            Great free breakfast.

            There was no matress pad between the sheets and the matress making sleeping a bit uncomfortable.

            The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating in my disappointment in the hotel. They changed my room twice to help me find a place that I felt was worth the cost. I could have spent half of the money to get the same standard.

            On top of the quality of the hotel, the late hours of the dining room (not open until 7.30 pm) were inconvenient.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            We had stayed at Hotel Suisse in the 1960s, when it was one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka, We wanted to stay close to the lake, and the location is very charming, with a nice pool and well kept gardens. It retains its Old Colonial charm. The rooms are large and the beds comfortable. We knew what to expect and were not disappointed with our stay.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            We booked for 2 nights and told them we'd check out after just one night as our plans had changed and straight away they charged us for only one night without us asking for it. Great staff, very courteous. Breakfast was awesome! Great location.

            I travelled with 2 other friends. As soon as I stepped in I could get the pungent smell that you get from long unopened rooms and cupboards due to fungus in rainy season. But I know I'm generally too sensitive to that smell compared to others including my wife and my friends couldn't get it. Shower was a big disappointment. I get very annoyed when the shower is not good. Moisturizer cream in bathroom smelt like a really cheap women's beauty cream. The minus points are probably related to my room only and not the hotel. But I don't know how are the other rooms. We saw mosquitos initially but got too drunk to notice them biting while we slept!
