    The food was sumptuous and the staff courteous and warm. The check-in was smooth with appropriate level of flexibility in options provided by the reception staff. The location is superb and the view memorable. We chose the place as we had heard about it and did our bookings on the net. Would recommend to all self-planning travellers as an ideal place to base activities in the highlands of Sri Lanka.

    The spa arrangements could have been better with options that regular spa users have regarding the gender of the therapist. I had a facial which left me less than satisfied for its tariff. A few more stand-alone options such as steam would have been nice. The in-house shop could be better stocked.

    Very good hotel. Enjoyed our stay. Beautiful views.

    The approach road was bad. Of course, hotel cannot be held responsible for it.

    Excellent Hotel great view but really really awful location! The road to it is long bad and just a nightmare! I remember how depressed I was thinking that I have to pass that road every evening we have to go to our hotel. Road to it is a real disaster!

    They need to train their hotel staff please send them to some hotel intership outside sri lanka. they need to know two things: 1. when you take the order attend to it, coffee is coffee in few minutes not 5-10 or never. sometimes I had to repeat order even 3 times before i'd get what I ordered and 2nd thing is please do not ask guests if they are finished just feel it for god's sake I had to fight for my plate most of the time. it is not polite to clean up in front of guests just leave it there for a while... I guess they think it is nice way of doing things very efficient to take plates away in front of you but noe efficient to bring you what you ordered. very very unusual not know what to think about it and how to understand it!

    Staff are friendly, fantastic view, fresh air

    Dirty room floor even after informing to clean it... The road up to the hotel is narrow and dangerous and long.

    Very good

    Great views great lobby very friendly staff...very well decorated hotel with plenty of greens and flowers...i had a very professional birthday surprise cake for my birthday which was really cute and tasty too :) my room was decorated with welcome note and happy birthday on the bed which was really professional and surprised me :)

    Far away from services nothing to do without a driver...the bed mattress wasn't comfortable, as I hated the idea of one restaurant serving all the meals if you want a nice dinner you have to stay with the whole guests having buffet it is too loud...sometimes you may wait much to have coffee and tea I think two guys are not enough they are doing their best :) the bathroom fan is toooooo loud not normal sound.

    Superb

    The location on the hillside was spectacular. All of the rooms have beautiful views of Kandy. We were upgraded from two rooms to a family suite at no extra charge. The food was really fab, with great buffets for dinner and breakfast (we did not stay for lunch). The gym facility was a great surprise and the pool was a nice diversion for the children.

    The blankets must be changed to covered duvets, wn I saw the blankets I felt I was staying in a hostel rather than 4stars hotel.

    Beautiful location with amazing views of Kandy Hills

    We were woken up at 3 am with constant noise by staff dragging furniture, dropping things and shouting. Continued unabated until 7 am despite a plea. T is a popular resort for weddings and they rearrange the furniture at a time when residents should be left to rest. Our driver told us that many of the clients he drove complained of exactly same thing. Duty manager was pathetic and offered 15% discount on previous day drinks! Room is nice but bathroom really cramped, you have to manouvre your body to get to the toilet round the washbasin. You have to pay local currency with their own exchange rate so the cost is not sim,ilar to what the website suggests. Check their figures because they charged me vat on tax! Cheeky.

    I really appreciated this hotel for the beautiful and amazing service, Amaya Hills is four stars but it deserves five stars, I loved it and I want to visit it again.

    All is perfect.
