Old style hotel. Good breakfast. Lively night life. Washrooms need urgent renovation. Furniture needs to be changed.
I wandered into the hotel following a visit to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth. It was like stepping back in time, in a nice way I would add. A lunch buffet was available for 1000SLR - soups, rolls, salads, curries, desserts... a good range of options to suit most tastebuds. No limit to what or how much you ate... really quite excellent. Of course the cost of drinks is higher than normal, but overall this did not detract from a very good lunch in a nice dining area with good service. You can of course just drink water if you wish. I would certainly return for a buffet lunch at the Queens Hotel if I am ever in Kandy again.
The hotel still maintains its prestigious classic atmosphere. The rooms are huge and are well maintained. The staff is also very friendly and provided an excellent service during our stay. Buffet does not have a large spread, but all the dishes were absolutely delicious. I'd like to suggest them to extend the spread of the salads a bit more so that it'll increase the quality of the buffet. It was absolutely worth the cost and this definitely is a place which I'd choose to revisit.
Nice staff, but very bad and slow service, old rooms, bad squeaky bed, boring tasteless food, the shower suddenly becomes Boiling HOT! But don't worry, it only last for about 6 sec. Before it turns to icewater.
Very friendly staff. Food is really good. But I had a parking issue with security guard which annoyed me a lot. My feedback to the hotel management is to improve the quality of the security guards since their service is pathetic. But I appreciate your hotel staff service. Thank you.
Wow.. the amazing part is, it is constructed in 1842 by British and the construction of interior and exterior remains the same now as well may be by few renovations.. it's OK stay there and a very famous Budha temple is walkable in Kandy is near by this hotel only ...pizza hut is also near by.. this hotel gives only breakfast as complimentary and they have Chinese restaurant as well inside the hotel...
One of the oldest hotels in Kandy situated right in front of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. It can be classified as a 3 star hotel with the British colonial architecture. Prices are quite reasonable but it's time for a major renovation I suppose!
Storied hotel definitely worth a stay. Location can't be beaten. Center of Kandy, right next to a beautiful lake and just opposite the gates of Kandy's main attraction, the Buddha temple of the tooth relic. The historic hotel has a nice colonial exterior, but the uniqueness is the interiors. A 100 year old and it feels like it, but in a quaint and nice way. Has many different types of odd shaped rooms. Ours was a large L shaped room with wooden floors. Part of it was the sleeping area and the rest my son and I used to play cricket :-). Bathroom fixtures were functional but felt 50 years old with pull chains and such. Nice. I took a walk around the hotel after midnight after everyone had retired. Wooden floors that creaked, dark panelled walls, eerie shadows - spooky, fantastic, the works. They have a very modern swimming pool with a lovely sun dappled courtyard garden next to it. The restaurant food and service wasn't fantastic, but hey there is a Pizza Hut next door if you're up to it. There must be other newer hotels around more modern and better maintained. But stay here - it's the type of experience that is getting rarer in this world. (Please leave feedback if you found the review useful. I'm trying to see what type of reviews people find useful)
