Clean rooms, helpful and kind staff, cheap prices! We are backpackers travelling around sri lanka and this guesthouse was the best we have seen so far! The service you get for the price you pay is great! We would definitely recommend it if you are staying in Kandy!!

A great guesthouse. We stayed in a room above the nursery and it was very pleasent to hear children playing outside in the mornings. We later found out the nursery was owned by the guesthouse owners daughter. The location was good, Kandy is pretty vast in size and the town can be quite crowded at times so it was a... More

We stayed two nights in a large, three-beds room at ground floor, with early 20th century furnitures and private bathroom. We payed 20$ per night. Very nice common space. They let you eventually use the kitchen to cook your own meals. In this price range it is definetely the most confortable accomodation we experienced in Srilanka.

Rooms ok (not the cleanest we had - but acceptable), bathrooms the same. Hot water, towels & wi-fi. Reception discret, a little cold even. Breakfast good, but for budget travellers we could find cheaper in the city. They offered us a trip around Kandy with double price we really payed outside. We recommend for 2 nights, not more. Next time... More

This is absolutely a wonderful place to stay, and excellent value for money. I paid rs2200 for a large room with three beds (it was just me though) and attached *hot water* bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean and the towels smelled ocean-fresh (I really appreciated this after so many places with slightly grubby, musty-smelling linen!). The house is lovely -... More

My best hotel in the whole trip. The house is old but very well kept, with elegant furniture laden with family photos and other decorative items. The bedroom in the house are large, with an equally large bathroom. The lady living there is very welcoming, and her doughters speak excellent English. They are very helpful in suggesting trips and restaurants,... More

We stayed in two places in kandy and investigated many more around this price point. The price is on a par with other budget rooms but you get a large, charmingly decorated room with no bugs, a very decent bathroom, a shared living room attached, and a good location near the lake (many of the budget guesthouses require an uphill...
