This Place is okay, But that's it. For One Night it's okay and cheap, nur then it's really Time to leave. The Rooms are mouldy, but then Probably all of them are in this area, and they have a tuk tuk driver who will just not leave you alone when it comes to driving you around and charging you. The...

This place was clean and welcoming. If not exceptional. I’d recommend to anyone looking for a relatively low budget option close to town. The food on offer was okay, if not a little overpriced – I’d shop around if you have time. Logistically: call ahead to confirm your room, I arrived and the room I’d booked was taken with only...

This place was literally our last resort. All the other hotels were pretty full and this is at the VERY top of a very steep and long hill. The owner sensed this and made sure to charge us more than all the other places of the same quality. They said they had hot water, but when you turned it on,... More

We stayed at the Lakshmi for 3 nights and had a ball. The staff were great, particularly when I came down with a cold (Heshan, the manager, surprised me with special tea, panadol and even cooked us a traditional dinner to help aid my recovery). Very clean, very helpful. I recommend doing a day trip with Rohan to visit the... More

I found the standard of this guest house to be excellent for the price. The service and cleanliness were both great. I accidentally dropped the key down the plug hole and they didn't have a spare. They were so lovely to me in the event of this disaster- reassured me and insisted that I go and have breakfast while they... More

The manager at this guest house was very helpful and answered all our questions and arranged good price trips for us. The rooms are basic but fairly priced when compared to other rooms I've stayed in in Sri Lanka. If I ever find myself back on Kandy I would stay here again.

Stayed in late November - Rooms were very reasonably priced at about 2500Rp+ for a double fan room with bathroom and mosquito net. Expect to pay a little more during peak season. Meals are cooked out on the balcony area and expect to pay about 600rp+ each for a nice curry main meal that is very filling as comes with... More

Spent two nights here - prices are probably as good as you'll find in Kandy without needing a threewheeler into town. We spent 2000 a night on a fan, double room with bathroom and hot water. The bed is the most comfortable I've experienced in 3 months of Sri Lankan travelling. The bathroom works, which given several recent experiences is... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. We were a bit hesitant at first as some of the employees at Lakshmi wait out the front to encourage you come and check the rooms. Luckily we did - we bargained to 2000 rupee per night with our own bathroom and comfortable beds. Although the room was pretty average looking... More
