The Grand Kandyan, Kandy
Disapointed stay
It wasnt what we expected from a 5 star hotel. The bathroom wasnt cleaned properly. The tolilet seat was old and stained. The batroom tiles were black with mould. The services were not very punctual. They kept us waiting for 45 mins to handover our lugages at the check out. Only good thing was the food. Food was excellent. We dont mind one or two mistakes but this was too many. Overall disapointed and would not go again and not recomend.

I didn't like our stay- the rooms weren't that clean (paint streaks and who knows what else on the windows and on the bathroom mirror) and the rooms smelled like mold. Our air conditioner kept making a weird whistling sound- though they did come to fix it. Everything just seemed supperficially luxurious but when you looked up close it was dirty.

Perfection in every way.
We stayed at the grand kandyan for 9 nights and it was perfect in every aspect. The location is great. Only 5 mins to the city centre. Rooms were very spacious and nicely done. But most importantly the staff were just fantastic. Everyone in the hotel was always pleasant and always willing to help. A truly great hotel in every way.

Old fashioned but new hotel
Stayed here for a conference - unusual in that the hotel also held a wedding on one day. Sri Lankan weddings are whole day affairs, so during the conference thumping music could be heard in all the sessions. The hotel itself is only about 4 years old but feels very old fashioned in terms of design and features. Staff helpful enough but many times you had to re-ask for things as not done right the first time. In consistent service - for example turn down service only done twice out of 5 nights
