Starting with the bad, the guest house is not in Kandy. Its about 20 minutes outside the city of Kandy. Also to get to is very difficult and our driver who did not know the area could not find it. The owner came down to meet us. At the end of a long day it was extremely tiring. The bathrooms... More

We took a taxi straight from Colombo airport to George's place after arriving very early in the morning. To be fair to the taxi driver it was a bit tricky to find but we got there eventually. It was lovely to stay with a genuine family who cares about the people who are coming to stay in their home. They... More

Staying in George's house was an absolute delight!! My boyfriend and I were extremely well looked after and we could not have felt more comfortable. It was fantastic to see our friendly guide /driver, Nixon, pick us up...he instantly put us at ease in this exciting but hectic city. Anything that we needed George and Nixon would attend to us...

We spent two nights at Kandy Guest house at the start of our 10 day trip to Sri Lanka and what a great start to our holiday! Lovely location, as others have said it is outside of Kandy but George, the guest house owner, can organise transport into Kandy for you and it's an interesting short journey into Kandy. The... More

The guesthouse is situated away from the busy town. George, the accommodating proprietor picked us up from the nearest train station and drove us around in the evening for no extra charge. He is in the process of changing the guesthouse's layout; a development that will increase privacy for the guests without detracting from the family run feel that makes... More

We were served tea on the balcony by George's wife and daughter when we arrived .George and his family could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately I... More
