It's true that the hotel (Guest house ) located within close proximity to the Kandy town with a scenic view of Hanthana mountain range. But this is one of the worst places you will find in Kandy. Not recommended for foreigners specially. No Hot water, rooms are not cleaned, staff is not professional at all. Local parties used to drink... More

Friendly owner. Initially the room we were in were a bit dirty and not up to scratch. But the owner quickly rectify the situation to move us to room upstairs (which were more expensive) but they gave us discounts. Happy with the service.

Bed sheets and towels were dirty, we were trying to change them but the service staff was no longer available in the evening. The kitchen is open but the guests could not use it for some reason - we took 1 glass hot water for a tea and the manager added it as 10% service charge to our room's bill.... More

Although the rooms appeared to be clean but because of the... More
