Rooms and bathrooms were spotless and spacious, beds very comfortable and wifi and AC worked well though we didn't really need the AC. Pathi can also arrange transport and tours around the... More

Pathi, his family and staff all made our stay at Kandy so special. It was one of the highlights of our amazing trip to Sri Lanka in August 2014. Our bedroom and bathroom were immaculate and very comfortable. The location on the lower ground was so tranquil and picturesque. The food was delicious and Pathi's wife went to great lengths... More

I chose it to have a the experience of a smaller homestyle stay, because the owner is also a partner in Tikalanka Tours who I was travelling with and because I wanted to try their cooking class! Hathana did offer a great home experience. Pathi and his wife Suba were... More

We stayed at this guesthouse according to good reviews ... Big deception... The owner is travel agent and used little tricks on us to make money... It is very sad. The location is remoted so you will have to ask his services... He is very pressuring for giving you advices and then sell them to you. We are very disappointed... More

We chose Hanthana House to experience something other than hotels; it was an excellent decision. The owners are keen to make your visit enjoyable. Realising the train from Ella was late Pathi, the owner, sent his driver to meet us at an earlier stop so we didn't have to change trains for Kandy. That was very thoughtful. We ate twice... More
