The hotel in general is good, the rooms are clean and quite new. There is hot water in the shower and all the comodities of an european hotel.
Except the ladies in the reception, all men working in this hotel are not representative of the people in Sri Lanka. The personal are not friendly and they don't smile, what makes a sad atmosphere. Just at our arrival we had an issue with the booking confirmation and no wifi to check it or book it again. The lobby manager (Marcus) tried to sell us the room for more than double the price of our reservation in Booking.com. He tried to cheat on us saucily. If I'd be his boss, this would be a reason to fire him inmeadiately.
Warm, friendly, efficient and service-minded staff. They were very helpful in understanding and meeting our different needs during the whole stay, giving good advice, arranging transports, improving the comfort and showing that they cared.
The pool-area's standard and the restaurant's decor could be improved. We had a problem with the wifi now and then.
Our room was large and comfortable. We used the pool area twice in the late afternoon. Fabulous place to see the sunset and he loungers are super-comfortable. Food was good and buffet service very friendly.
Reception staff not very friendly - we were asked to settle our bill on arrival even though we were staying two nights. I refused as we intended to eat in the restaurant at and they backed down. Not helpful with tutus either. Impersonal service at front desk but all other staff were lovely.
Food was delicious, service excellent & staff very polite & helpful. View from room beautiful & very exotic to see monkeys hopping from one balcony to the other.
A little difficult to find directions within the hotel esp from one wing to the other & not easy for elderly people to orient themselves, took some time. Also no wifi in our room & we were not informed before.
Inclusive breakfast and dinner were delicious.
-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!
