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

We spend two nights at Hanthana House. The homestay is set in a beautiful and peaceful area. It is a little out of town ,but a tuk tuk can be arranged to take you on a 10 till 15 min trip into town. The rooms and bathroom are super clean, the bed is wonderful. Family Pathi is very lovely and... More

Stayed two nights at Hanthana House. Pathi and his family were really welcoming and eager to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We had two delicious dinners there and it was great to eat in the family kitchen chatting to our hosts and the other guests. Would be happy to return. It's not ideally situated for the town centre...

Hanthana House is a lovely, family home. It's a real guest house where you are well looked after, you are served delicious Sri Lankan meals and you will spend a peaceful night in a comfortable bed. The pictures of the place are over the top here. They present it as if it was a boutique hotel. It is not, it's... More
