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...

Hanthana House is a 10min ride away from the main part of the city however if you call the guest house you an arrange some to pick you up which we found to be great after a 5 hour bus ride to Kandy.

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. The breakfast was delicious and the two women who prepared it were lovely. The family offered us fresh pineapple juice as a welcoming drink and our room opened... More

Hanthana House was the first guest house we stayed in during our two-week break in Sri Lanka, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our first night. It's a 400-500lkr tuk tuk ride from the centre of town up on a hill but it only takes 5 mins. The owner Pathi and his wife were great... More

We had a lovely stay at Hanthana House. The food was delicious (you can request almost anything, so try some of the local cuisine like Pol Sambol, Roti, Batu Moju, Kos, Prawn Curry/ Chicken Curry). The host and his family were gracious and took that extra step to make us feel at home. Our room had a luxurious four-poster bed... More

I stayed with a group of friends who all came to do Yoga and meditation. Our host was very friendly and even showed us his Buddha statues and told some interesting stories. The rooms were very clean and nice. The smell in the rooms was also very nice. At breakfast we got a very good vegetarian buffé. So U would... More
