Indra is like a mother for the guests. Even when you arive late from a tiredfull journey, she will prepare... More

Very nice guest house, beautiful location surrounded by nature, nice rooms, nice breakfast.... but most of all it is a very warm place to stay... Indra is really taking care of everybody and everything... She has this capacity to feel and see what everybody needs to feel really home... She helps everyone to find his or her way in kandy....

I had the plessure to stay a few days at Forest Glen in Kandy. The rooms are clean, the reception, breakfast and evening meals are perfect price/quality but above all, the host lady Indra is a real friendly women with the hart at the right place. It was more than perfect price/quality!! I would recommend it to everyone!!

Forest Glen is a beautiful family run Guest house/Holiday Bungalow situated in Kandy Town in close proximity to Udawattakele, Royal Forest Park. The place is well maintained, exceptionally clean and the surroundings very peaceful. The rooms are basic but comfortable with Double or Twin beds and Ceiling fans. All rooms have an attached shower and toilet. The Host and Hostess... More

perfectly located in the middle of the jungle, up on the hill where you can enjoy the natural beauty of kandy. 15mins walk to downtown kandy, is quite difficult to find even you take the tuktuk, you need to follow the "FG" sign....rooms are basic, but spacious and with hot water, ok cleaness, ok breakfast.... 旅馆在半山上,被绿树包围,安静,远离康提的噪杂;离鸟类保育区很近,观鸟者的天堂;地方很难找,tuktuk司机也不知道,最好带上店家的电话,上山之后可以跟着FG的标志走。晚上出门要带手电,路上没灯的。房间较大,早餐过得去。

We stood two nights at Forest Glen near Kandy. It's a beautiful place! 10min. walk from Kandy in the woods. It's quiet and clean, while Kandy is a very busy and dusty town in the mountains. Indra, the owner, is a great cook! Ask her to make dinner for you!

Up the hill the surrounding was green and nice, away from the traffic in Kandy. The rooms were average, very hard beds that creaked with every turn. After what we have seen so far highly overpriced. Indra was not at all friendly to us, we did not feel welcome. I was also very shocked about the racist comments oft her... More

I am sorry to hear about the misunderstanding. First of all I would like to say that we sri Lankans are not racists. Please do not try to plant such germs amongst a nation that has always lived in harmony with all races. We never had any prejudices against each other, it seems that the visitors here look at us...

Perfect spot just a few hundred metres past entrance of the bird reserve. We saw very many birds early morning during breakfast on the terrace, which has a view on the tree canopy. In the reserve you hear the birds, but they are high up and difficult to spot. Also a quiet place, nice room, good food and friendly service.

3 weeks in Sri Lanka and this was the best: a very kind hostess, comfotable rooms, hot water and a lovele decor. The location is ideal: close to Kandy and the bird sanctuary. The bird chorus in the morning and evening is unforgetable!

Kandy is massively overpriced in general. This place is essentially a hostel so is very basic so overpriced as a result. Its a lovely homely place in the quiet jungle part of Kandy. Its an easy 15 minutes downhill to town but a tuk-tuk ride back up, especially in the dark! Run by a lovely, friendly lady so its like... More

How can you say Forest Glen was over priced when you booked through Booking.com and it was $40 for the double room. Sorry for changing rooms. This was because you were given the wrong room in my absence. But I'm sure you had a comfortable stay. I checked the beds out. They do not creak. However, I feel that if... More
