Such a wonderful guest house in the middle of the forest! Quiet and peaceful. Wonderful service and food! Must try their dinner!! The rooms are really nice and the beds are comfortable. We had a really great time here, and it is just a tuktuk ride away from the center.

I spent my first 2 nights in Sri Lanka at St Bridget's GH and one night on my way from the highlands to the north. The house is beautiful. On the hills of Kandy, peaceful and quiet place located 15 min walking distance from the city of Kandy. The room is nice and clean and the garden is very beautiful.... More

Yes, it's worth being a little out of town. This place is delightful. After a gruelling journey, we were treated to a restorative cup of tea and ginger biscuits - thank you, Pipi! Lovely food, very nice rooms, good advice. Cool trees surrounding the guest house, filled with birds, and fire flies at night. So pleased that we stayed for... More

Situated a 20 minute walk from Kandy centre this guest house comes highly recommended. My single room was small and I never managed to get any hot water from the shower. However as it was very hot at the time of my stay the cool showers were no great inconvenience. Also, to be fair I never mentioned it to the... More

The bedroom on upper floor, clean,... More

High level of hospitality, very useful advices, the most delicious food (with explanations and show of unknown vegetables) we have tried on the whole island - own brewed coffee, fresh fruits, yummy rotti and pineapple jam - we wish to stay there for longer.

Believe the hype guys, the food offered here is simply amazing, especially the wonderful dinner. The rooms are clean, spacious and the beds are comfortable. Pipi is a very friendly landlady, and she keeps a very very beautiful garden. The open roof terrace is very nice too. It's about 15mins walk into town, but it's a lovely walk. Stay here.
