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

This was our first introduction to Sri Lanka and we were blessed to have found George and Ann's wonderful home and hospitality. We were made to feel so at home and our room, overlooking the river was just incredibly relaxing ( by the way, every room has the same lovely view), a true forest hideaway. We booked 2 nights loved... More

George and His daughter welcomed us and are extremely warm people and take care of all their guests . The Breakfast and Dinner were very authentic and fantastic... More

Kandy Guest House is in a very quiet, green and relaxing location. The food is fantastic! Try and clarify the price before (the food is fantastic but a bit pricey). The location is beautiful - right next to the river so you can hear the river when sleeping! One thing, however, is that it is not actually in Kandy. It... More

Such a pleasure to stay at George's place last week. Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Exactly what you want in a small guesthouse! The food was great - really authentic Sri Lankan. Even had banana curry, never tried until now. Really liked the bedroom down by the river, and very good bathroom (but George, perhaps frost the... More

Our first experience in Sri Lanka with the family (daughters 6 and 8) was our stay at Kandy Guest House and it was memorable. George the owner very kindly offered to pick us up in Kandy since his home is 10 minutes away from the city in a very calm area away from the noise and stress from Kandy. When... More
