We staid two nights. This is probably the best place to stay in Kandy. It is close by to the city but it feels like miles away. It is located in the jungle, you can see lots of monkeys and here wild boars. The manager is very friendly and helpful. Very good rice and curry.

Great location: in the middle of the forest, but just 10 min walking to the city centre. Helpful and friendly staff, good food, excellent price/quality ratio. Wonderful patio with a stunning view, perfect to enjoy a tea or a beer after a day spent walking in the nature or visiting the city.

We walked to Kandy during the day which was a nice walk - not too long. Breakfast was very good and the lady running the hotel/guesthouse even made a Sri Lankan... More

We just loved this peaceful and historical place to stay. Once arrived we felt like in a movie and just adored the beautiful surrounding. The house owner is a very interesting lady with a lot of stories to tell. She is a great host and really cares that her guests feel well at her home. Absolutely recommendable!
