As Kandy town centre is becoming increasingly crowded and packed with hotels and traffic St Bridget's is a good alternative- slightly out of the centre but not too far- a 5-10 minute tuk tuk/car ride. It has a lovely well maintained garden and overlooks a small jungle area- so there is plenty of greenery and nature around. The rooms are... More

Lovely place a 200 rupee (£1) tuk tuk ride out of busy kandy. Very friendly people who offer good advice on how to get around, what to do etc. Very nice balcony rooms, delicious food. Good birdwatching from the restaurant area overlooking giant bamboo plants. The monkeys are regular visitors too. Highly recommended, thank you!

the guesthouse is in a hill a bit outside kandy but it's walkable distance (15-20 minutes). be aware that traffic is a nightmare at peak hour in the area and walking is then faster. the location is awesome and calm, surrounded by a bit of forest and a very pretty garden. the host family is friendly and helpful (the father...

Kandy is busy and noisy so it was a relief to be up in the hills above the town. Very attentive owners checking if everything was satisfactory. Best tea we had during our 3 week trip around Sri Lanka! The owners speak excellent English so making arrangements was very easy. Both the curry dinner and western style breakfast were up... More

Some upsides and some downsides. Beautiful house exterior and garden full of flowers, fruit and herb trees. Location very nice green and peaceful (would not want to stay in very busy Kandy center) 20 minute walk to the center or 200 rp tuktuk. The very mellow owner seemed shy at first but later on more friendly and helpful. The eating... More

Although for a late booking, the owner waited for us and was in constant contact during our journey from Anuradhapura, which is very reassuring especially when it's 9pm in a foreign place! We enjoyed the breakfasts and be surrounded by the greens. The kind hosts would meet us at the door before we depart, giving advice on getting around and... More

This place for us was in a great location still easily accessible from the town centre but nice and quite tucked in a tropical suburban area walking distance from the big Buddha. Meals are delicious, staff and friendly and rooms are clean and shiny, but a little characterless.

We stayed there for 4 nights... Acommodation is OK, no problems, comfortable... They have a very nice garden. But the best is meals... The lady owner should get a Michellin star :-)) Small negatives: - the dinner should begin at 7.30PM, but never start before 8PM. It means you will have dinner late... (Sleeping with full stomach;) - they switched... More

Sri and his wife are the perfect hosts! Simple guesthouse, good value for money. Lovely quiet settling a little back from the centre of town, surrounded by gardens and mini-jungle! Great food! Pleasant terrace lounge area for guests. They can organise tuc tucs and taxis for you.
