We stayed at the Golden View in Kandy for a couple of nights in March 2016. The room was 2000LKR per night with breakfast an additional 350LKR. We hadn’t planned to stay there but, as we were walking past the manager asked us to look around. On first impressions the room was fine for a couple of nights but, when you look past this then the room and bathroom were looking tired and really needed some improvements. However, having said the bed was comfy and the room had hot water.

We had a room on the upper floor with a balcony however, due to the building opposite (Hotel OZO) there was no view apart from into the rooms of Hotel OZO. The Golden View is on a corner where the taxis and tuk-tuks wait so it can be noisy first thing. It is a 15 minute walk into the centre of Kandy or a 200LKR tuk-tuk ride.

The one thing that annoyed us was the constant sales pitch that came from the manager of the Golden View with regards to trips and tours. Every time we walked past him he was asking ‘what are you doing today or tomorrow?, I can organise a trip/tour’. It seemed he was more interested in getting people onto his expensive tours then his guesthouse. If you do book a tour with him, don’t take the first price he offers. Say you will think about it and he will come back with a lower price which it better as he prices are higher than other operators.

Overall if you want a room for a night or so then this place is OK although there are better places around.

I am MRS Sirimalwatte, the wife of the hotel owner. I was an administration officer of the provincial ministry, after my early retirement I am planned to give my attention to the hotel.Now I am uplift this place step by step. I like to see this reviews to get more ideas to improve this. We hope to do some repairs specialy the toilets , and the water supply.I think with my involments i can do this in better way.

I want tell another thing, the manager who was there I already send, because we got to know he always give a pressure to our guests for asking about tours and trips,

I want put this notice for an attention to our guests

We stayed here several days and enjoyed it. Our room was clean, had amazing wifi and no noise. We had mosquito nets but it was not necessary. We payed 1400 LKR a night. The owner was very helpful.
Bonus: Right down by the lake we saw monitor lizards and turtles each day!

Staff was ok, room ok, breakfast pretty bad for the price (make sure you can have it included with the room) and if you are in a hurry well skip breakfast because it takes too long to come.
Wifi only at reception desk (unaccessible after 11pm because night watch is sleeping there on the floor ... )

Better to go somewhere else

It is basic accommodation. Rooms miss maintaince and many things are broken, especially in the bathroom. Beds are clean, at least they look fine at the first glance. The location is convenient and every tuk-tuk will drive there without any doubt if you say not 'Golden View' but 'Hotel OZO', which it a big one and next to Golden View.
Wi-Fi works so good it is possible movie streaming.

Room Tip: Some rooms have metal bars on the windows protect you against monkeys - recommended.

The owner looked through the window as we where getting changed, (didn't appoligised) the food was hawfull. But the rooms are quite good for the money 2500 roupis. Talking to the owner from another guest house it seems that they will add taxes to the cost of your room randomly .
