Lake Bungalow is the family home of the Dunuwille family and it is a privilege and a pleasure to experience their genuine Kandyan hospitality. No five star hotel with all its wonderful mod cons could ever give you this. Excellent location, steps away from Kandy Lake and the Malwatte Temple, a short walk from the Temple of the Tooth and...

Lake bungalow is one of the most lovely places we have stayed during our travel through Sri Lanka. The house and rooms a very nicely furnished and make you feel like you are going back in time. The people who serve you are most gently and are very open to help you. Waking up here is heavenly with the birds... More

In this guesthouse you'll be in a very nice atmosphere. The lady put pictures of her family which has an interessant story. Loads of nice and funny things everywhere. The room and bathroom where clean . The hostesses kind enough to give you good advise. They are very helpful. The location near by the lake is perfect.

Myself and my partner were made to feel like a member of the family throughout our stay. The Proprietor and staff were simply amazing, welcoming, flexible and helpful. We are looking forward to visiting again.

We stayed for 4 night in this typical british house and we loved it. The owner, an old lady, is really charming and had a lot of very interessant stories about her house to say. The breakfast are huge and delicious. The house is clean and you can enjoy all the house's common living room. The people who work there... More

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
