By staying here, you're actually treated as a guest of the family instead of just another paying customer. We forgot to inform that we'd be coming earlier than the check-in time but was received warmly with passion fruit juice and the hosts tried their best to get our room ready quickest possible. The room we got was on the ground... More

Arriving in the dark was slightly concerning but what a pleasant surprise! Dinner was ready on arrival and set the standard for the whole week. Delicious home cooked Sri Lankan meals every day and great value. Room was very clean, comfortable bed, AC, fan and shower room. The owner offered advice on tours and arranged everything when asked but was... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is a fifteen - twenty minute tuk tuk ride up winding hills from the city centre. You pay about 400 rupees each way. We stayed in the cheaper room which was next to the dining room. The more expensive rooms are on the top two flights of the building. We thought our room... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there our first 3 nights in Sri Lanka, and we are so Happy we did. Patti, our host organized everything for us and gave us great tips on how to travel well. He organized a driver for us. We felt right at home. The food prepared by his wife was so so good, we always... More

My wife and I are on an extended trip through Asia and South America and our one-night stay at Hanthana House was one of the highlights of our trip. Pathi and his family are exceptionally hospitable and made us feel at home in their house. We had a slightly late arrival after a long drive from Sigiriya but they warmly... More

We stayed at Hanthana House for three nights in January 2016 and really enjoyed our stay. It is a small homestay/hotel with eight rooms situated a ten minutes tuktuk ride outside of Kandy city centre (400-500 rupees). Very quiet and the upper rooms have a mountain view. The hotel is very new and provides a high standard. The rooms have... More

Hotel was beautiful and quiet, tucked in the hills outside the city. Great facilities and very clean. Beautiful views and rooftop. Owner could not have been more hospitable and helpful giving us advice on things to do in the area. Plus a delicious free breakfast!! Can't recommend more highly.

We had 2 super days in Kandy with our 9 years old son at Hanthana House, with an exceptional friendly host family. Pathi and his wife even gave us a fantastic Curry cooking lesson and introduced us to the world of Sri Lankan spices. The food was delicious and very tasty - a pity that we had to move forward...

A bit out of the town, so factor in a few 500r tuk tuk rides to get back and forth into Kandy. But very friendly family homestay. The rooms were very comfortable, and great food. All guests ate at the same table which was a real bonus as it meant conversations flowed easily over rice and curry. Double ensuite room... More

A very nice small hotel with a great view, beautiful and comfortable rooms, tasty food and very friendly owners. We stayed for one night at the last day of our round trip and we really enjoyed to stay in Hanthana House in Kandy because of it's lovely atmosphere.
