We spent our first night in Sri Lanka here and had possibly the tastiest meal of our whole trip. A properly delicious homecooked Sri Lankan dinner. The guesthouse is located in the hills, around 20 minutes from Kandy – a serene setting with a stream running alongside the back of the house. The accommodation is good, and we felt well... More

The personalized service and quiet setting make for a remarkable experience! George and his family are very welcoming and helpful and are willing to do whatever they can to make your stay better. Though a little far from Kandy town center, it's a very cheap 10 minute train ride or a 20 minute ride by tuk tuk. I would recommend... More

Although the house sits further from Kandy than we were hoping, it's on extremely quiet and peaceful river. The house itself is a very well kept family stay with the best owners. George runs the house and tour guide company - he speaks very good English and is extremely helpful all around. His daughter Michelle manages the guest house and... More

Many thanks George for allowing us to stay for 2 nights. Food was good and ideally situated close to Kandy and the botanical gardens. Would definately stay again if we find ourselves in Kandy. Many thanks

When I first walked into my room and saw my balcony overlooking a little creek, I knew I picked the right place. George was a great host and helpful in planning my time in the area and the remainder of my Sri Lankan trip through his tour company, Michelle Tours. George's family is so lovely and welcoming, I felt completely... More

We had a pleasant 1 night stay at Kandy Guest House. George arranged a pick-up from the Peradeniya train station, and very kindly arranged for a delicious home-cooked dinner even though it was a last minute request. He had also helped to purchase our train tickets for the onward journey to Ella, and went out of his way to ensure... More

I recommend staying here if you want a nice, clean, simple but welcoming guesthouse. The rooms are a bit basic, but they are very clean and quiet. The guesthouse has a nice atmosphere to it, particularly as George and his family are very welcoming and accommodating. I would also recommend using George's travel company, Michelle Tours. The only negative side... More

Amazing place to relax and enjoy nature. The house is located by a stream and the view from the balcony is out of this world. George and his wife go out of their way to make sure your stay is memorable. Breakfast is lovely especially the roti. What a peaceful place!!!!!

I booked the room in Kandy GuestHouse because I wanted to escape from the noise of the city (Kandy). Everything in the guesthouse was as I expected, i.e. comfortable and clean rooms, nice atmosphere, quiet, view on the river, good breakfast and wifi, staff speaks English very fluently. The guesthouse is far away from the city (about 5 km) but... More
