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...

Well located guesthouse around the lake. The school below, the monkeys all around and the employees give a lively and warm atmosphere to this place. The essentials (sheets, sink, toilets) are clean but the whole place seems to have stayed as it was 30 years ago ! Lot of dust, grime and mold. This place just need a big sprig... More

Very close to town, can walk. Can ask for breakfast. Really enjoyed. Cleaned washroom. We couldn't get a hotel the day we were in Kandy. A friend gave the # to the Lake bungalow. Thats the only way to book this place. They don't give locals. The owner is a very nice lady. I loved it. Will recomend to others

If arriving by bus or rail you'll need a tuk tuk to get there, because lake Bungalow id about 1km from the bus or the railway station. In 2008 that's only a 250 rupee ride, or it was for three of us with baggage after negotiation! Lake Bungalow is well signed from the lakeside road, up a steepish road after... More
