We were supposed to stay here 3 nights, but we liked it so much that we booked another night. The guestfamily is really hospitable and are very willing to help you with your trip. They also tipped us about some lovely properties where we stayed later during our trip. it's not in Kandy center, but we loved the quiet and... More

Alisa and Andrew are amazing hosts in a charming cottage overlooking a lovely green space and river with luxurious green hills as a background. Simply marvelous ,we would love to visit with them again in the future. It is a little hard to find and you would be advised to have a car and driver .We toured Sri Lanka in... More

Andrew and Ailsa arranged a driver to pick us up from the airport and drive us to their place. They had a meal and a beer waiting for us. Polwatte house is in a peaceful location away from the madness of Kandy. It was like staying with friends in a relaxed family home.

Beautiful, helpful and extremely welcoming family with a beautiful home. It's a bit out if the way, down a Long, windy dirt track, but once you are there, it is definitely worth it. I highly reccommend Polwatte House, and would happily visit again next time we are in Kandy!

Ailsa and Andrew are wonderful hosts. Their home is not very near Kandy town itself, so you will need transport to get into town. However, having seen the madness of Kandy, we were pretty happy to be staying away from it. And the view at Polwatte is just breathtaking! Stay here if you enjoy being somewhere off the beaten path... More

We have travelled to many countries over the years and this lovely place stands out above all. We weren't at a "bed and breakfast", we were invited into a home for fellowship and food. Aiilsa and Andrew and their friendly little kids and great staff made our three days there fantastic. The rooms were comfortable, the setting relaxed, the unobtrusive... More

We LOVED staying at Polwatte House. The house is a beautiful colonial pad hidden away from the noise and pollution of central Kandy. The atmosphere of this family home is very friendly, open and relaxed. The rice & curry cooked by their housekeeper is amazing, a must eat! Both Ailsa and Andrew are able to offer suggestions and advice for... More

My girlfriend and I had wonderful couple of days with Ailsa, Andrew and their girls. the guest room is nicely renovated, food was great, the house is beautifully located next to a river outside Kandy. We couldn't have wished for anything else. Thank you Ailsa&Andrew!

Hosts Ailsa and Andrew could not have shown us more kindness during our stay. Although it's well off the main road, our driver managed to get to the house without problems. The secluded location lends an air of detachment from the hustle and bustle of Kandy and there are lovely walks down by the river and up through the lanes.... More
