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.
Nipuni, us1 night trip
The Grand Kandyan, Kandy
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.
