We spent 2 wonderful nights at kandy guest house. The rooms are part of the families house with really nice balcony/terrace facing to the private garden and small river close by. The owner is very kind and helps wherever possible. He picked us up at the train, offered tours and gave us a lift to a dining restaurant. We had... More

We had a wonderful 3 nights stay here at the Kandy Guest House. It is in a little village off Kandy town but it offers a retreat from the hustle & bustle of life amid flowing streams & sounds of birds & cicadas - rustic charm under the safe shelter of George & his family. They were very friendly and... More

Nice guesthouse in the nature. The family is nice and helpfull for every request. The room is clean with a private balcony on a river and the forest. Very nice if you like the nature. Breakfast is fine and we had also a dinner, real homemade cooking. There aren't shops and restaurant very close but George will help you.

Stay at Kandy Guest house will make you feel at home. George and his wife are very kind and the room is big with a large balcony overlooking the river. I suggest to stay here to feel relaxing and eat the tasty dinner of George's wife. Hope to come again :)

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
