I was a on Holliday to Srilanka and visted Kandy. I met a french couple in Trincomalee and they recommended this place and I don't regret going there. The owner welcomed us with a friendly smile. The place was clean and the set up was very nice. Lots of Antiqe around and the staff worked there were very friendly. The... More

There can be a confusion of two places when they exist in the same premises as with hotel Castelo and Shangri la guest house in Kandy. These are like two adjoining houses where they have the same main entrance and the same path way leading to both houses.The sign boards of both places are not indicating the directions clear enough....

We stayed only one night but we really enjoyed. The house is beautifully decorated and the owner is very helpful. Also, the guest house is ideally situated. Close from city centre and Tooth Temple. I highly recommend this place for your stay in Kandy

We had stayed in another guest house before we changed to here. We arrived the guest house when there was only one big room left. The room is on the ground floor. It is simple and big but there's not much space because 2 big beds and one big table take almost the whole space of the room. On each... More

Good value for money for this guesthouse whose owners also speak French. This guesthouse is decorated, which adds some charm to it. The room for 4 (2 double beds) was nice and decorated. There's another room for 2 (1 double bed) on the left of the living room which has lots of charm. Had we been only 2, I would... More

I stayed here with a friend last summer when travelling round Sri Lanka. It is a small, intimate guest house with only a few rooms, which meant we got to know the other guests staying there, who included a man travelling on his own, two retired ladies travelling together and a family of five. The owners are incredibly friendly and... More

The best place that I have stayed, with the most helpful and friendly people around, amongst all my travels. Lovely couple, very helpful and have kept a very homely atmosphere. They not only guided me where to go and what to do, but also gave me tips to travel through local transport. I gained my confidence back to catch the... More
