    Luxury hotel with the biggest room and wonderful staff”

    We arrived to Kandy after a long journey from Sigiriya to big smiles and friendly staff before we had even checked in. Siviraj made our young children feel completely at ease by showing them magic tricks and playing games with them while our bags were taken. The room here is the biggest we've had in Sri Lanka. Incredibly big and very comfortable beds with young children. Food at Brix was excellent, both for dinner and breakfast. Shame we didn't take full advantage of the swimming pool. All in all a great stay in a quiet, huge relaxing room.

    An absolute treat to be a guest in this Hotel”

    We thoroughly enjoyed 6 nights in Kandy and our choice of Hotel made our stay VERY special. The facilities, the ambiance, the quality of food, the friendly staff, and the views were SUPER. We also appreciated the Live Entertainment each evening. Being visitors from Australia we enjoyed seeing the Sri Lankan Weddings that were taking place in the Hotel. Our stay in this Hotel truly enhanced our Kandy stay, and we were treated as though we were special. (Which of course we are!) I need to mention that the gift shop in the foyer was really worth visiting as well. The towel animals on our bed are also worth mentioning.There were 4 of us in our group and we would all highly recommend this hotel to our friends.

    Well-priced luxury”

    After staying in a few tuly awful places at around the same price, the Golden Crown was a welcome surprise. It is a bit out of town but we did manage to walk it. It was built less than a year ago and has a fabulous infinity pool and adjacent restaurant where we had one of our best meals in Sri Lanka. Room was equally good. The only negative was the check in process which took about 20 mins. I think they were trying to make it seem a luxury experience by making us sit on lounges and drink unwanted juices. Management please note..you need to streamline check in...most people arriving have been on a long hot drive and just want to get into their rooms. Thanks though for a great stay.

And the fact that you have brought regarding the check-in process surely we will be taken into consideration and appropriate parameters will be implemented in order to reduce these kind of issues in future. Thank you again for this fantastic review. I hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back soon. Kind regards

    This is a beautiful hotel. The pool and bedrooms are breathtaking. The staff went above and beyond, it is slightly out of town so we didn’t venture into kandy but used it as a stop over place between other destinations anyway. The only complaint was that there is no spa area, only massage and treatment rooms. And the bar is very small and therefore busy. Overall excellent value for money and a beautiful hotel
