Our room was located on the pretty garden level and was small with an extra bed and average sized bathroom but was very clean. We arrived about nine pm and as we have emailed previously about our late arrival the hosts kindly provided us with dinner. However, the owner made a rather big deal over telling us how he had...

We had a wonderful stay in two rooms with a very large balcony. The furniture and beds were very nice and comfortable. The family were very welcoming and they had a lovely driver who took us on a hike. The food was fantastic and we had a very enjoyable cooking lesson. Would recommend wholeheartedly, one of our favourite places in... More

To be honest the Rooms are ok and clean just as the bathroom. The terrace is huge and the people are really nice, but what makes this place really worth the detour is the food and the atmosphere. Immediately when you arrive you feel like you are at somebody’s home and you are as you share dinner with the family.... More

We had a nice welcome drinks upon arrival. We were showed to the two available rooms that can accommodate 3 of us. One had a balcony with a great view and they placed 3 chairs outside for us (do note the balcony is shared with another room, if someone is staying there). The other room was at the lower floor...

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our trip to Sri Lanka. Hanthana house is a guesthouse not a boutique hotel. The rooms were excellent and the bed was large with good A/C. We had dinner one night and breakfast both days. Food was good not excellent. As a word of warning, the owner is also involved in... More

We are an Australian family of 5 and stayed at Hanthana House in April for 2 nights. The rooms were lovely, the food was amazing and we walked in the hills with great views. The family was very helpful and friendly. A real Sri Lankan experience and our children loved the home-like environment. I enjoyed spending time in the kitchen... More

It is some distance from the city center in a nice, quite and unpolluted part of Kandy. Lots of greenry around. Room was very comfortable. Toilet was very clean. The hosts are kind and helpful. We had a delicious breakfast. Accomodation and food was also provided to our driver. Please note that this is a home and not a hotel.... More

Fantastic hospitality in a great setting - one of the nicest places we have stayed! Nothing is too much trouble and our hosts could not have been nicer. Took a walk through local hills to local village. Itis a little outside Kandy but well worth it for the setting. Very highly recommended.

Although this home stay is reasonably far from the city, we enjoyed our 1 night stay there: the room was clean and comfortable, the shower was good and the family was nice.
