      • Older travelers

        The staff are generally very good and try to do their best.

        This is one of the worst hotels we have ever stayed at. It is dirty, run down, very badly maintained and extremely poor value for money.

      • Family with children

        we needed extra beds for our young children and they were fast to respond. Area for the restaurant very pleasant, open.

      • Family with children

        Beautiful setting.

        We only stayed one night of our 4 nights booked. I have stayed at Thilanka twice before in years past but standards have slipped dramatically in the intervening years. Maintenance is the main problem - rusting railings, dirty walls, mottled ceilings - these are all things that might be easily fixed but they were bad enough that we wanted to leave immediately. Also, wireless was expected. The computer had 1 computer that did not work.

      • Couple

        close to tourist destinations like the Tooth Relic Temple and the lake

        Although the hotel was of an old artisitic type, it was over priced and they need to rethink of the charges

      • Family with children

        I liked the room location since the view was excellent and fully ventilated with fresh air and light.

        The food was mostly srilankan I would suggest they should offer indian foods also in their buffet

      • Family with children

        Staff are excellent. Stunning views of the whole lake town. Clean rooms. Good location.

        Shower to weak. F&B can be improved further with more variety and cuisine

        • Average rating
      • Group of friends

        The hotel is located well--close to downtown Kandy, but far enough away so that one doesn't have to put up with noise and noxious vehicle fumes.

        The staff are not particularly helpful and the quality of the food has declined significantly since the last time I stayed in this hotel--ten years ago.
