After a poor experience at my first hotel, this hotel was amazing change! I was welcomed by friendly staff and the lobby was clean and modern. I was given a very nice room with amazing views. The room was clean and well set out. The pool area was wonderful! Special mention to the chefs as the buffet meals were beautiful and varied. The waiters were charming and funny. Did not want to leave!!

I was at topaz hotel about 3 weeks ago. It was my honeymoon and we booked the honeymoon package. We had a very warm welcome. The room was well decorated. Cake in the room fresh flowers and chocolates we're served as part of the package. We were in the top floor and the view from the room was spectacular. Many people prefer hotels with the Kandy city view, this view from the room was as I mentioned spectacular The staff was excellent and was very attentive to our requests. The food was over the top. The dinner and breakfast buffets served a variety of local and international dishes. Again the food was excellent. The lamb chops with mint sauce was done to perfection and so was the crab cake. On our second night we enjoyed a nice candlelight dinner on the top floor under the stars and moon. The setting, the food, the music, the service was top notch and it really was a night to remember. Thanks you all at topaz hotel Kandy for giving us perfect memories. Afterall, all we save at the end of the day are memories.

Pleasantly surprised with the style of rooms and service as this three star hotel, which deserves a much higher star rating. Staff are courteous and go above and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful stay. The hotel is situated on a hill, with lovely views. The hotel restaurant is based inside the hotel (no outside seating) but there is air con. The bedroom and bathroom was reasonability sized and comfortable. Perhaps try and ask for a room at the back of the hotel, as we could hear the car horns at night from our room (323) which was at the front of the hotel. Swimming pool is a good size. It's shared with the sister hotel (Tourmaline Hotel). Residents of Hotel Topaz need to descend down some stairs to get to the pool, so may be an issue if anyone has accessibility issues. We stayed at the hotel on New Years Eve, and attended a gala at the sister hotel next door, called Tourmaline Hotel. The gala provided a buffet dinner which included entertainment 4,500 Sri Lanka rupees per person. Drinks extra fee. They put on a good show, with fireworks at midnight. Was an enjoyable evening. I would recommend hotel!

Stayed at this hotel as part of a group tour. The rooms are very nice and large. The bar and restaurant staff were very helpful and polite. I also ordered room service during my stay and was impressed at how hot my food was when it arrived. Very speedy service! The restaurant has an a la carte as well as the buffet which makes a lovely change from the other hotels I stayed at in Sri Lanka. I found the food to be very tasty and the waiters in the restaurant to be very attentive and helpful. The hotel is 3km from the centre of Kandy and it would be extremely difficult to walk there as the hotel is up a very steep hill. The tuk tuk from the city was not very expensive.

It isn’t the easiest to find. We arrived and were checked in quickly. To our dismay, our room was right next to the elevator and we could hear very loud thumping music from the function room. We had been given one of the larger suites but asked to change as it would have been impossible to sleep with the noise. The staff quickly and seamlessly arranged us to be moved to another room down the corridor. Our new room has fantastic views of Kandy and each night we loved watching the lights twinkle over the city. The room was tidied impeccably each time, and nothing seemed too much trouble for the staff. The breakfast was plentiful and generous, though it was disappointing that the live dosa counter only seemed to be operational when a large Indian tour group was around. The cocktails we ordered on New Year’s Eve were made to perfection. Only blip was that the tea we ordered one afternoon never showed up. This is a hotel that is so much more than what it seems on the surface. The photos show the views of the hills from the room- just glorious!

Dirty, old, bad maintained, dirty matrasses, bloid stains on the pillows. Bathtub and shower not working. There us loud music till 3 in the morning. There is a party centre on the top floor. Buffet average and boring. Not recommend 🤐

Spent the Christmas weekend at this scenic location at Anniewatta with my family. Loved the location since you can spot most of the Kandy city from this hill top. The triple room was spacious enough and was overlooking the mountains in 3rx floor. We were lucky as the restaurant was also in the same floor and a bit far from the room, so could not hear the noice. Food had a catchy taste also the restaurant staff including the restaurant manager always tried their best to offer a superlative service. Hotel has a quite a big pool but from Topaz there's bit of a hike as it was located few meters below the hotel grounds. If you are not a good swimmer the shallow area would not make you happy since the depth stars from pretty early part of the pool and goes until 9.5 ft. Had a superb Christmas eve Gala Dinner with live music at Hotel Tourmaline just next to Topaz which we really enjoyed. Roof top had lots of nice views over the city. Our only concern is about the front desk staff who were not that welcoming to their guests and hope you all can earn that with a little bit of training. Barman did a great work and so generous. Overall It's somewhat satisfied experience and we would like to see more improvement in our next visit. Good luck!

Spent 2 nights at this beautiful hotel in Kandy Sri Lanka. Super views, great service and food, very friendly staff. The evening function at the roof top was very well organized. This place has rooms are different rates and affordable.

hill top hotel with great views but you will need transport to get to it we travelled around from this hotel the room again was large and comfortable big bed and a clean shower /tiolet area the food was good buffet style and catered for most nationalities the staff where friendly as all the people we met in sri lanka wi fi was good here to

Short 2 night stay as we toured the Cultural triangle was enjoyable at the Topaz. The room was great and looked like had been recently redecorated and had great views over Kandy and it's lake. The restaurant was a bit busy and we found the food to be warm as opposed to being hot, maybe because we liked to have a few drinks listening to the light entertainment before going in for tea. Did not get to use the pool but had a look around and it looked just great. Kandy itself is down a steep hill with a windy taxi journey to get there, we personally did not take to it too much as it was a bit busy and we found the local vendors pestered you ever so slightly. Not too many places for a pit stop either. Really did enjoy the Kandy dance show which build up to a great fire walking finale.
