-Rude and slow staff -Staff shooting monkeys for stealing food with an air gun during breakfast -Don't book excursions or taxis from the hotel. They rip you off! -Pool much smaller then anticipated and ice cold -Short beds
A very good buffet breakfast
They gave me an inferior room to the one I booked but they did have weddings on that day.
Nice area, food excellent, garden and pool very nice.
Outside room was horrible, dark and sparce.
Great hotel to recover from the 11 hour flight from England. Nice pool with pool bar. Great views over Kandy. Buffet style meals. Room very spacious with a balcony.
Spacious rooms good food
Excellent accommodation at a very good location. Good facilities, very helful personnel.
Pleasant atmosphere and good food
No hot water in bathroom but rectified eventually
Very clean and comfortable.
No tissue paper.
The outdoor dining/pool area. The view. Friendliness of the staff.
The buffet.....too repeditive. Needs more variety. The a la cart menu was lack luster! We would still recommend to stay at the Thilanka.
facility room monkeys room service/room keeper are nice
location - will cost ca. 200rp for tuktuk. front office. not so friendly. pushy selling Kandyan dance ticket at 2x of price.
The view of the Rock across the grounds and the pool is gorgeous, the room was large with lots of luggage space, the location, the setting of the hotel is lovely - the rooms have a spacey, private feel due to the arrangement of the buildings
It took days to get the tv, hairdryer, fridge, a.c, razor point, safe, electrical points..... to work, if at all. Staff attitudes were variable.
Variety of food
Less attention to local customers by staff
Location was good. Nice view of the city
Old rooms and the monkeys are dangerous, due to the monkeys we could not enjoy the view from our room balcony without being attacked
Nice layout, good resturant. We stayed over XMAS and the buffet was good value. Nice bar/lounge with fantastic views.
Well, the description of the rooms on bookings.com is for the rooms in the freshly new renovated wing. If you get allocated to the old wing than forget about flatscreen tv, internet etc and get used to a tired room/ bathroom. Alsomwatch out in case you are booking a 3rd bedroom which set us back 30 US$ per night and was nothing more than the couch extended.
Location with excellent views. The free x-mad dinner buffet that came with our booking. Nicely decorated room.
The bathrooms are in need of an upgrade
The room size Dining room Service
Slight noise from the bar and restaurant A little walk to town or a long drive around the lake to access hotel entrance.
Unfriendly staff payed for a tripple but GoT a double for 4 persons
location, pool, view from the top floor lakeside
Too big to be other than impersonal, indifferent food
Staff were excellent (pick up from airport, reception desk - Marcus, drop off at next location). We had arranged the pick ups and drops offs via email and it all worked perfectly. Staff were also excellent when it came to recommending and arranging a hospital visit for my husband. The bar has a great view over Kandy.
The room itself looked a bit tired, especially the bath room. It's a 20 minutes walk into town which is fine but it's not the most pleasant late in the evening. However, tuk tuks are easily available.
The staff, the food, the Spa. The Spa at Thilanka was a hidden gem. The treatments were wonderful and reasonably priced. The people working there were very good at relaxing tired muscles! It was a wonderful experience.
The manager wanting the bill paid every two days!
Good location Bedroom quiet and comfortable Good access to Bamboo Garden bar and restaurant via car park level Good pool On quiet side if lake near to temple of Tooth.
WiFi dreadful Breakfast ok - but not great
The staff is very helpful and supportive The hotel facilities are really good The Spa has great treatments The Manager is very helpful and looks after all guests personally Staff if well groomed Food quality if par excellence
The hotel is a bit far from the lake and most new rooms don't face the lake which is the biggest attraction at Kandy city
Good location, good facility, good food and not very expensive.
Wi-fi only in public areas Staffs are just so-so.
View from the pool bar - great on a sunny day and during thunderstorms! Location made it easy to walk to town. Friendly staff.
