Our taxi driver had to ask for directions several times, so it's definately tucked away :-) we always took a tuk-tuk to Kandy, it's a steep walk up and takes you about 20 minutes. Pipi is the elderly lady of the house. She is friendly and can arrange and organise everything for you. Her son-in-law was there when we visited... More

A nice little guest house on the side of the mountain surrounded by trees. Eco friendly and simple guest house, you can sit on the terrace looking at monkeys playing in the trees. The hostess is very nice and friendly and she cooks wonderfully!

We had a lovely stay at St. Bridgets. The guesthouse has a nice location and the hosts are very friendly and helpfull. We had dinner at the guesthouse both nights and it was amazing! It almost made us want to stay longer. Hope to come back here someday!

Stayed at St Bridget's mid February for 4-nights. It is quite a bit out of the way and although possible to walk into Kandy it is not an easy walk very hilly. . They are putting their prices up quite a lot. The guesthouse is well run and the breakfast decent. However the rooms are in need of plenty of... More

We showed up for one night at this beautiful guesthouse and ended up staying for three it was so homely, with a beautiful garden and incredible home cooked food for breakfast and dinner (better than anywhere you can find in the busy main town and with the option for amazing Sri Lankan food (highly recommended!) or a delicious, affordable eggs/fruit/toast/yoghurt...

Nice location, beautiful view and nice garden. Small but clean and comfortable room. Very good food (especially dinner); hostess dries own spices in the garden. Kind staff; able to give tips about kandy.

St Bridget’s staff made us feel welcome, they were attentive, friendly and helpful with some transport advice. Our double room was simple, clean and comfortable with a big double bed, sunny little balcony overlooking the garden and ensuite bathroom. The wifi was good in the main reception area but weak in our room. Breakfast was western style and tasty (eggs,... More

I was recommended to St. Bridget's by another guesthouse owner who had previously offered sound advice. I was thrilled to have found a place to stay in Kandy last minute during the high season, but unfortunately I had no idea how truly awful the experience would be... Besides the small, dark, damp and unclean room... the even smaller (door doesn't... More

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay here. The owners were wonderful people, so warm, friendly and welcoming. We received tea and biscuits on our arrival before being shown to our room, which wasn't in the main building. We have absolutely no complaints regarding our room- it was spotlessly clean, very cosy and had a lovely soft double bed... More

Kandy is quite difficult to find good value for money budget accommodation. If you want to be right in the centre, you have to compromise on not having Wifi (or paying more money). This little gem is around 20-30 minutes walk (depending who you are!) from the centre in a peaceful countryside style location. Breakfast is not included in the... More
