On our trip to Kandy, we stayed at Wales Park Residence, and we give you our honest review on what we thought of our stay.
To help you choose the best place to stay in Kandy, we go into detail about the apartment, if it’s in a good location, the standard of the cleanliness and more. So, keep reading to find out if you should stay at Wales Park Residence.
You can book your stay at Wales Park residence, via Airbnb.
The apartment was very clean and tidy. It has everything you could need. There’s two bedrooms, one with en-suit bathroom, double bed and bunk beds, while the other is a double bedroom, with the bathroom adjacent.
There is a fully operated kitchen, dining room, and living room, with a balcony leading off from the living space. The kitchen is well equipped, and stocked with food, making this a big plus. If there is anything that you want, then the local grocery store is a 5-minute walk away.
Downstairs has a further bedroom away from the guests for your driver if you have one. The driver’s bedroom is a good size double room with an adjacent bathroom.
All bedrooms have a balcony leading off, with great views of Kandy Lake and the Temple.
There’s plenty of outdoor space from the balconies to the upstairs roof, where you can soak up the sun.
There are fans in each room to keep you cool with the hot climate.
The host at Wales Park Residence, provided us with the basic amenities, such as bread, eggs, milk, rice, and fruit.
If you are looking for more food to cook a meal etc., then you will need to visit the local store to purchase these additional goods.
In our opinion, this is great. Not all hosts provide food, so having some food, although it might be basic, takes a little bit of stress away from your holiday.
Wales Park residence is within a great location. Only a short distance from Kandy Lake, Kandy’s Temple of the Tooth, restaurants, and shops.
Due to its central location, the best way to get around Kandy would be on foot, although on the way back to the apartment, it could be a little tiresome climbing the incline. Having said this, it is still an ideal place to stay.
The host Priyantha, was excellent. Priyantha was very helpful, friendly and professional. He tried to make us feel welcome and gave us some great advice on where to travel, how to get around Sri Lanka, and answered every question we had.
For an apartment such as this, the price of £70.00 (Rs 15000 – $95.13) per night, is very reasonable.
We shared the accommodation with family and friends who were travelling with us, which made splitting the costs even more reasonable.
The entire apartment at Wales Park Residence was to a high level of cleanliness.
The beds and bedding are clean, bathrooms were spotless, we couldn’t fault anything with the accommodation.
In our opinion Wales Park Residence, is the best place to stay on your visit to Kandy. The apartment ticks all the right boxes, when it comes to places to stay, and one we would stay at again if we are travelling to Kandy.
We would also recommend you to stay here! You’ll get the best possible service, and the best accommodation, you really couldn’t go wrong with staying here.
