Queens Hotel,


Price From : US $ 101.79


The sprawling Queen’s Hotel has an interesting history which dates back to the colonial era. Originally a grand Kandyan mansion named `Dullewa Walawua’ owned by a Kandyan chieftain, it fell into the control of the British who converted it into a mess hall for the Rifle Regiment officers. The property was bought-out by the Galle Face Group early this millennium which promised a brighter future. Queen’s is centrally located and is an ideal base for exploring Kandy’s ancient heritage. There is no better place than this to watch the famous Kandy Perehara - one of the finest cultural festivals in Asia which unfolds right by the hotel on Dalada Veediya during the month of August. Interiors with ornate ceilings, wooden floors and stairways and antique furniture maintain the ambience of a bygone era. The staff provide a personalised service.


Queen’s has 54 rooms, out of which 28 have a/c. Red Dot recommends the second floor a/c rooms, especially Rooms 125, 126 and 127 overlooking Dalada Veediya and the Kandy Lake beyond. The balconies of these rooms afford the best views during the annual Kandy Perehara. All a/c rooms have a mini-bar, TV and private balcony. Rooms are furnished with double or twin beds. The ensuite bathrooms have bath tub or shower with h/w. As the hotel is situated close to the main road, noise can be an occupational hazard, especially if you have the windows open.


The Queen of Hearts restaurant serves tasty Sri Lankan rice and curries, Indian and Western dishes. The Lord Mountbatten Lounge Bar and The Pub Royal offers a range of alcoholic beverages and snacks in a colonial setting. A small museum room at the hotel has many interesting photographs and artefacts that recount the history of the hotel. There is also a ballroom, a separate meeting room for private functions and business meetings and a swimming pool. Other facilities include a shopping arcade, IDD telephone facilities at the reception, free Wi-Fi in all public areas, room and laundry service and an on-call doctor.
