We had to show them booking snapshots etc. We got in the room we booked after a lot of faffing. Large room with big double and a single bed. Large bathroom. Second night here we went for our evening meal and... More

My friend and I arrived very late a night. We booked over the phone in a tuk tuk (buses weren't running anymore) on our way from Colombo. The guest house is up a steep hill grouped with many other guest houses. The family is extremely nice, and we had great conversations with them. The owner went to university in the... 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
