City was full due to Esala and prices higher everywhere But we found Forest villa very different from what was advertised in internet. The Place was very dirty, room and toilet. Nice location, out of the crowded city center But our room was very noisy as there was always somebody talking loudly downstairs. I wouldn't Book it again

We booked the whole place in November for family and friends attending a wedding in Kandy. The manager Ranjith was very friendly and did his best to make our stay a memorable one. The chef and care taker Danushka were amazing . Always a smile . You could get a Auto Rickshaw easy from here. When you don't find it.... More

Rajith, the hotel manager is a cool dude. Always smiling and very helpful. Nimesh, the cook does a top job in the kitchen. The rooms were clean and ours was pretty big. It's a little bit out of the way, perched up on the top of the hill but it is super peaceful up there. We fell asleep each night... More

Sewer gas coming up through the drain, 1 sheet on the bed (ask for and got a 2nd), ridiculous large furniture that you did not want to touch, and mothballs in the armoire that were foul. Even at $60 this was a horrible place.

very good, comfortable, clean, for a budget traveler this is an exceptional bed and breakfast, ideal for long walks, close to the city centre, and travel connections to other cities way to go Madani and Team.

Only planned to stay 1 day in Kandy, but liked this place so much we ended up staying 3 days. Rooms were basic, a few grubby marks on the walls but otherwise fine for about US$20-25. Beds super comfy. No problems with mosquitos despite a few holes in the old window frames and no mosquito nets. Shared bathroom was always... More

The Forest Villa is a unique hotel,rooms are beautiful, clean and spacious, we couldn't have any other meals than breakfast at the hotel due to tight tour plan, but breakfast was delicious. The staff was top notch but Madani was particularly helpful and welcomming. Most of the attractions like The Temple of Tooth, Kandy Lake, City Center and many more... More
