I am basing my review people looking for good budget accommodation. It was a cheap place around many other guesthouses on the hillside above the lake, but opposite the temple. We had a triple room with hot shower. The Wifi work good except in the evening when everyone was trying to access at the same time. The do meals which... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during the Esala Perahera in Kandy. Looking at the prices other people got during the same period, we got screwed... we were told 50 dollars a night was the normal price during this period, for a double room with shared bathrooms! That was well above our price range but we were so in need... More

We arrived in Lakshmi without a booking, but soon found it a warm place to stay. The new owner just re-opened the guest house (which existing for many years already) six days before we arrived. Looking at the reviews, it can only be considered a good thing that the guest house now has a new owner. Ajith has live in... More

I wouldnt recommend this guest house. Prices depend on the clients (I got charged 500RS more than my neighbors for the exact same room and manager denied it..) bed are terribly hard, shared bathroom is very small and gets dirty really fast, and it was also really noisy. You can find better accommodation just a few steps away.

We came there in the night. Despite late hour the Owner welcomed us and accodated in rooms. He is really peacefull and helpfull person and you feel... More

Arrived around 6pm to find all other guest houses either full of over priced (e.g. 4000RS for shared bathroom). So, Lakshmi it was. The room was generally disgusting. The bedding was damp and smelled musty, bed was stained, mosquito net had holes in and didn't fit over the bed. Worst of all though was the bathroom. The wall and ceiling... More

We arrived quite late (after 10pm) due to a train delay. We were tired and just wanted to sleep so stayed here. However had it not been so late we would not have stayed. Very overpriced for the quality of room (2000rps) per night! Rooms were basic and pretty grim! Stains all over the mattress. Bathroom was pretty gross too.... More
