      Individual guest reviews

      • Couple
        6.6

        Big rooms, but a little old and quirky. There's a lot of history in this old hotel! We liked it.

        Couldn't take a shower due to cold water problems - we could only get boiling hot water. A janitor tried to help us, but even he couldn't figure out why this happened.

      • Couple
        4.0

        from the entrance on wards staff were very rude, and pool didn't have a lifeguard

        Huge rooms, very old but stylish.

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Central location in Kandy. Next to the lake and the Temple of the Tooth. Public rooms, bar, restaurant etc are spacious and well cared for and just what you hope for in a hotel of this age. Breakfast good and buffet dinner very good value for money.

        Distance of room from reception. Taken in lift to first floor and then had to walk what seemed like miles to a flight of stairs. Then walked another long distance to 2 more flights of stairs. Would be very hard if you had any sort of disability, were old or had kids with you. On arrival at room it too was disappointing. Very, very dated and poorly equipped. Reception staff very keen to take our money before we saw the room and I can see why.

      • Family with children
        4.6

        Excellent location,

        Very old and dirty. I do not recommend it for people who normally prefer to stay in five or four stars hotel.

      • Single
        5.8

        Good location next to Temple, although you are woken at 05.30 every morning by the chanting relayed from loudspeakers. The hotel is an old colonial building and if refurbished could be an extremely beautiful hotel. Food in Chinese restaurant better than main restaurant. Didn't get chance to go in the pool but it looked ok.

        Nowhere near 4* rooms shabby & basic. No hair dryer in rooms you have to call reception for one then they want to know how long you will be using it for because another customer would like to dry their hair !! No room safe, very inconvenient to have to use the one in reception. I had buffet dinner in the main restaurant which was awful. Tasteless & dried up possibly the worst meal I've ever had in Asia. The dining room lacks any sort of charm or character. If traveling from Colombo I strongly advise the express train, observation carriage approx 350 lkr but you cannot book online & have to book well in advance.The taxi fare is 7000- 8000 lkr & is horrendous,traffic is really bad & takes 3 hours. It is much better to stay in Kandy overnight than attempt to do a day trip from Colombo as the round trip will take 6 hours of your day.

      • Older travelers

        Great location for exploring Kandy. Atmospheric and characterful hotel, if a little run down. Good tea.

        Staff initially denied all knowledge of our booking and were unwelcoming until they finally found it. Rooms facing onto the road are very noisy, starting with drumming from the temple opposite from 2am, before the traffic starts around 5am. Poolside changing area very grotty. Lousy breakfast.

      • Single
        4.6

        the location and the swimming pool

        Staff not very helpful. Elevator only works for first floor. Extremely long walk to room 338 up 3 flights of stairs carrying own bags. Cold breakfast if arriving in last 30 minutes before closing. No bar staff on hand at times as they are out back cleaning. Unfriendly welcoming from security staff at all times. Impossibility of finding decent parking. Television has reception only for Sinhalese language. Only 1 sheet on bed. Mini-fridge locked. Floors very squeaky. Banging on door the next morning waking me up at 9am to ask if I wished to stay another night. Overall, the worst hotel experience I've had in over 40 countries.

        I like the room and the wooden floor And the stuff r friendly

      • Family with children
        5.0

        The hotel has good charm and we liked the old world feel.

        Bed Bugs! I sat up late one night in the downstairs lobby surfing the web. After a while I felt myself scratching and upon lifting my shirt I noticed some critters on my skin. A quick google search confirmed that they were indeed bed bugs. After informing the manager that particular chair was removed. Overall the staff were pretty unhelpful and extremely slow, sometimes needed to be asked more than once for straightforward requests. Our lake view room was noisier than hell!

        10.0

        Queens hotel is tipically Victorian style hotel with great history, situated on the shores of Kandy lake. The rooms and bathroom were very spacious and very clean and all the service in hotel excellent.

        There is nothing bad about this hotel.

      • Single
        5.4

        The building itself is beautiful but needs upgrading. The location was very convenient and the hotel itself was very clean.

        The front desk staff were a bit inefficient. The sound was terrible in the room I stayed in (209). Although I didn't get any street noise, I could hear every rustle, cough and conversation of the people in the room next door.

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Nice old historic building. Good location.

        Too expensive for what we got. A little bit grubby. We found one cockroach in the hallway and the other one in the dining room.

      • Single
        5.8

        The coffee and tea pot in the room the cleanliness of the room itself. The Pricing is great and location is in a very convinent location.

        The Bath tub wasn't clean. There was a hole in the door across from me and that got my curosity up and when I looked into it it looked right into the bathroom next to me. That's scary thought.

      • Group of friends
        3.4

        Not worth for the room price and food served well below standard. We found another hotel with excellent food and service at cheaper price and a great location. The request for quiet room with a view not met at Queens Hotel. Cannot be recommended.

        Hotel did not respect request for quiet room. The power in the room went off twice due to short circuit. Location not recommended as it is very noisy as of four o'clock in the morning. Can be used as transit hotel for one night only.
