We had a Great experience with this property. The Pool is Great and spacious especially recommended when travelling with kiddies. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms are comfortable, food is Good & distance great to Kandy City. Beautiful location overlooking the lake!

Stayed here on a tour through Sri Lanka....very close to town (300rupees by tuktuks) and walking distance to the temple of was ok...past it's prime I would say...still ok for the price....nice pool and views over the lake...internet pretty had balc. But don't leave open due to monkeys....good breakfast.....

The hotel was well placed and the rooms were good. BUT it was full of tour groups (in the off season) and the buffet was a bit too western/Chinese orientated although the few Sri Lankan dishes were good. The down side was the noisy Chinese groups and the 4 piece group wandering around playing music to each table - trying to sell the CD. The bar was really nice and not too expensive.But there was building work going on the grounds until late at night.

We really enjoyed our stay in Thilanka hotel. We had a beautiful view on the Kandy Lake and diner as well the breakfast is really outstanding. There was even a live band. Rooms are very nice and bathroom was spacious and clean. We forgot (never happened before) put camera, but Thilanka hotel found it and handled it with care.

Stayed in this hotel in the year 2001 for a business tour, it's conveniently located and upper floor rooms has a good view. the food was good and the staff are friendly.... it was a good experience and will return again

We had a nice stay at Thilanka. It was quiet and clean. Rooms where spacious and beds were really good. The breakfast was not the best, but for dinner the restaurant buffet was great. Took a long while for the tap water to heat up so almost impossible to was your hands in hot water.

Once the hotel had sorted the connecting rooms and our A/C, it was great! Great location, good rooms, and by far the very best breakfast we had in Sri Lanka. Very helpful and polite staff. Probably the best hotel out of all of them. We had wifi in the room.

Best hotel stayed in kandy. Value for money. Dinner and breakfast was tasty. Definitely a 4 star hotel. Hotel room was clean and nice. Wifi is better. Had great time. Will recommend this hotel for couples.

i stayed here for an overnight only after a whole day exploring kandy. it was inclusion on my sri lanka tour from Navoda Tours. All in all the hotel has nice view and overlooking in the city of Kandy. I feel comfy in my room and perfect with a balcony as well. The staffs were so friendly and accomodating. they prepared and packed my breakfast early coz I need to leave at 6:00am on the next day. thank u so much!

We stayed in Thilanka Hotel for 1 night on our way from west to east cost. Hotel is not in the middle of the noisy city, but still not far from the activities. Our standard room had a noce view over the mountains. The room itself was clean and spacious, as in 4 star hotels in general. Beacuse of its location I would recommend this hotel if you are in town.
