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

Stunning location, views, service and standards. As a large group of 10 people (among them there were 6 children) read tripping around Sri Lanka we spend an amazing two nights in this hotel. This is a lovely hotel with views over the surrounding mountains of Kandy. The rooms were nice with the comfortable beds, clean sheets and towels so the... More

We loved our stay here, its perfect for couples who want a nice place to stay where the food is brilliant and the service fantastic. It is a bit out of town, so best if you have access to a car. Anu the owner is very interesting and entertaining and the views are to die for. We highly recommend The... More
