Recent guest reviews

Whilst touring sri Lanka we stayed for 2 nights at the topaz on a half board basis. My wife and I were celebrating out 25 the wedding anniversary and were given a warm welcome by the host along with a cool drink.Our room had been upgraded and a cake delivered later which was greatly appreciated.The food was excellent with a good selection which must be difficult given the diverse cultures that frequent the hotel.The staff were attentive and helpful and their English good.Our room was spotless and well appointed with great views over Kandy. Overall an excellent hotel with the best views

The hotel is a short distance outside of Kandy centre up on a hill, this isn't an issue if you have an escorted tour or vehicle. The views over Kandy are fantastic from the top floor public area. Whilst here the staff gave my wife a birthday cake and looked after us very well in the restaurant which was well appreciated thanks.

Unfortunately we only stayed here one night as we were on a tour. It's a very clean, modern hotel. Food was good with an excellent choice. Wifi was good. Amazing views from all around as top of a hill. I would have liked to stay another night as didn't get to see much of Kandy.

As we had a tight tour itinery to go through, we did not get a chance to enjoy all the amenties the hotel had to offer, howevery our room was very clean and very well kept. The restaurant offered a variety of dishes and very tasty too. All the staff were very welcoming, friendly and pollite.

After a good lunch at Hotel Devon (Kandy) we left to our hotel which was on top of a hill. Getting there was a bit scary with narrow and steep roads. We were surprised once we reached the location.! Location was absolutely wonderful. We felt like we were on top of Kandy and every corner were visible. After a warm welcome. We were guided to our room. We were happy enough to have a room with a view outside. Entire hotel was maintained well. Was happy with the cleanliness maintained in the room and the bathroom especially. We had live music in the night. Which we really enjoyed. Later we went to lavishly spread buffet dinner along with live food counters for fish and chicken. We loved the ambience, the way that the staff interacted. Used the pool in the morning which was maintained well. The staff surprised us with a cake and congratulations song to celebrate our 10th Anniversary.! Great hotel. Would definitely recommend.

The hotel was more like a guest house though the room service was excellent and the quality of food was outstanding especially the tender pork chops. The view from the restaurant during breakfast was breathtaking

We went to the Topaz for dinner and it was absolutely amazing. The view from the top floor was spectacular and we could see Kandy at night and the surrounding landscape and the lights were amazing and a must see. We were a private group and so had the top floor to ourselves. Service was perfect in every way. Food was the best I've ever had in Kandy - they made hoppers in real time for us and had a wonderful chicken rottiserie to build small wraps as you went through the buffer line. I recommend this place 100% for the location, view, and food. We didn't stay in a room so can't comment on rooms.

After a long drive from the airport and enroute sightseeing we arrived at the hotel in the evening. Quick check-in process and very pleasing staff at the reception eased our way to the room allocated.Decent room and overlooking the hills offered a panoramic view of the town.Food offerings is good with multiple options and very attentive staff assisting us on table.Will recommend to all.

I went there for last Saturday. Everything is amazing at Tamarind resturant .They had two options for soup both were really nice especially the chicken soup.The main course is amazing you get many options and varieties to choose from pork. chicken curry, Chinese/Singapore-style stir-fried crabs pasta and much more for all the tastes. There juicy glazed pork chops are sweet,salty and a little spicy, tastes grate. Grill station had a good choice of beef, chiken,mini beef steak, fish kebabs and sausages. Everything that came off the grill was delicious. My top 3 choices were the mini beef steak, chiken and fish kebabs. They also have their own ice cream which are really really really really really good. It is very creamy and dense and you won't get the same taste from store bought ice cream. They offerd me ice cream. What impressed me the most was the super friendly, accommodating service. Everyone I interacted with was just brilliant, with professional attitude, a welcoming smile, and top notch service. The hotel itself is very beautiful. I we'll come back, and actually can't wait to try their Saturday “Grill night” . Strongly and whole heartedly recommend Tamarind resturant for a great dining experience.

Hotel located in a valley. Very good and neatly maintained. beautiful swimming pool and good spread of Veg food in their breakfast menu. rooms were clean and neat and reception staff were good friendly.
