      The hotel staff was friendly and good. The location is very nice

      The way to the hotel is not good, the road is narrow and not safe enough specially at night. A;so one problem we faced in checking out that the exchange rate of the hotel is different than what we get in Booked.net ( our total stay was 487$ and they wanted 526$ ). They count the total stay in LKR and then exchange it to US dollars on thier rates.

      Very nice and modern room

      Hotel is still under renevotian

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      The staff tried hard to please us, and attempted to provide 4-5 star service. The bed turn down service was a nice touch, and the rooms are tastefully decorated and modern. Bathrooms look clean and more than adequate.

      The greeting with cool hand towels would have been great except they smelled like mildew. Also the paperwork was done inside the room, which felt odd and should have been just finished at the reception. Tuk tuks do service the hotel even though they said no-it was just a way to use their inflated car service.

      The friendliness of staff at reception and the efficiency with the way the checking in was handled. The house keeping staff very efficient too.

      The service received in the restaurant in spite of hardly any customers in the restaurants the staff were not very informative and did not bother to tell us that the sorbet was not available which was on the set menu and did not ask what we wanted for the dessert. Water glasses were not refilled.

      From the friendliness of the staff to their beautiful facility, it is a perfect quiet tranquil getaway.

      The room was comfortable and nicely arranged, and clean.

      Nothing much for fun, specially for kids around age 10 to 15, other than the pool, and it didn't had a lunch buffet on Saturday and had to go to next hotel.

      Location

      Dirty room and bedbugs. Mattresses on the beds were old and really filthy. Our driver also had bedbugs in his quarters. Sheets were not changed the whole 5 nights holiday. No lift to 3rd floor, so disabled people will have problems staying there as well as elderly people for climbing stairs. There were ants by the minibar fridge. To use spa, pool or restaurant facilities you need to climb more stairs outside. Restaurant food was average and our order was not served correctly as described on the menu (they served us chips instead of mashed potatoes by mistake).

      Rooms were clean, nice view from dining area.

      The cost of a basic breakfast was extortionate. Taxis organised by hotel were 50 percent overpriced. hotel is in a very remote location so had few options. I would recommend an alternative.

      Every thing is good

      Need more than swimimg pool and internet to be free same as most hotels

    • Family with children

      The Tourmaline provided good leisure facilities ie Tennis, Billiard Table in the Bar Area was good for mixed time together, Wi-Fi in the open areas easily accessed by all, Food was excellent as was the staff.

      The Hotel Shuttle Bus was free however it only operated between 1pm and 6pm which was not suitable for trips into Kandy for Site Seeing or Dinners at night.

    • Single

      The hotel was chosen because of (over)booking problems in other hotels in and around Kandy. The staff were extremely charming and helpful. The isolated location in the hills above Kandy with breathtaking views of the mountains was a blessing. The refurbishment of the hotel by a famous architect was also a positive experience.

      The room at 150 us dollars per night seems to me rather high priced, since this basic price did not include anything like breakfast, internet access, use of the shuttle van to get to the 3 km distant center of Kandy, swimming pool. For a still unclear reason, I was told I could not order the set dinner menu at 20 us dollars and had to order from a more expensive menu instead.

      The situation of the hotel was just lovely. And the windows In the room, opening from wall to wall and floor to ceiling over the countryside and hills making the most of the views, were a great touch. The staff were eager to please and that eagerness made up for any lack of experience of some of them.

    • Family with children

      We stayed in Tourmaline for 3 nights during Christmas time.Staff were very friendly and tried hard to do good job.Especially, the restaurant manager was very helpful.The breakfast was nice with good selection. Room was spacious, clean with modern design.

      There is no lift, so we had to carry the pushchair up and down.

    • Family with children
      9.6

      I loved the views, breakfast, and room. The design was superb. Staff was very welcoming and hospitable and the facilities provided were upto the mark.

      There was nothing I disliked. Just one thing tht its a bit out of way from city.
