We stayed here for four nights in March 2014 and I have waited until the end of the year to write this review. The owner is the most dishonest person I have come across while travelling during 2014. Hanthana House provides nice, clean and comfortable accomodation complete with fair four poster beds / mosquito net beds. Unfortunately the place is... More

Located away from Kandy town, we get to enjoy the absolute peace during our stay. (They are doing some renovation, but only during day time, we spent most of our daylight hours sight seeing so does not bother us.) Food is absolutely amazing, delicious, plentiful and varies everyday!! Enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back if we are ever... More

However, the room had its fair share of insect inhabitants which my partner and I were now used to having been in Sri Lanka for about... 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 stayed at Hathana house in August with my daughter. 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
