Ups: Very beautiful hotel with a lot of personality. Big room with very nice balconies overlooking the scenic pool. Very friendly and interesting owner, great for a chat. Wonderful food, the pumpkin curry was to die for. Downs: Bit of a bugger to find as it took each tuk tuk driver ages to find, maybe needs a few signs? Bar... More

I got to know this place on tripadvisor. It was a heavy raining night that I was a little bit frustrated, not only because of the rain but also I had no idea of where to stay (I like travel with no specific plan, and of course it brings me troubles sometime). I searched on tripadvisor and found this place... More

The Change is a bit out of the way, so you need access to a car. But it's set up in the hills with a view. It's smallish, and the service is friendly, prompt and personal. The room was large and with a bit of a view. The food is sensational and the pool is welcome at the end of... More

Our original booking to another place was cancelled due to the bad road conditions and our driver-guide from mystilankatravel ( with which we were also very satisfied) suggested this place. It is quite a bit far from Kandy, but for that you get unique jungle feeling with a nice pool far from any noise. The food was also great as... More

We stayed at the change for one night. Friendly and welcoming staff who were 24/7 available for questions. We had a room with a beautiful view over kandy. And the pool is great to cool down when you had a busy sightseeing day. We had a tasty fresh breakfast with toast and egg. A beautiful stay in kandy. Little out... More

To say it first: The hotel is about 15 minutes (by car) away from Kandy City. But it has a great view over Kandy and is overall in a "normal Sri Lanka-like" condition, what means: It would be unfair to compare it to European standards as the windows doesn't exactly fit to the hole in the wall and some other...

So, after reading the good and the less good reviews of this hotel, we finally opted to spend our stay at it. It was by far one of our best stays thanks to the homy feeling it provides, the welcoming staff and Anura's warm presence (the owner). 1. The location: contrary to some of the reviews, as soon as we... More

Beautiful situation overlooking Kandy. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Good room size with A/C and hot water. A really good find. Value for money too as the evening meal was very tasty and the breakfast was plentiful. Took a bit of finding down a steep lane but we'll worth the effort.

Stayed here last night - fantastic! If you bear in mind that this is Sri Lanka, I would give it a real thumbs up! Our driver took a while to find it - but it was an exciting drive... The views - as everyone has noted - are stunning and I saw one of the best sunsets ever! Decor was... More
