The guesthouse arranged us a pick-up at the station of Kandy. Hostess Madugalle even called us in advance to let us know the driver was on his way. At a certain stage a tuktuk came by and called us. We asked if he was the appointed driver, which he confirmed (we did not knew who the driver was or even... More

We had the honor to stay at Madugalle Friendly Family Guest House with my girlfriend a few weeks ago. I must say that the hostess was one of the nicest people I have met in my travels. Kumari was keen to help us with any requests we had and help us to plan a hiking trip to Knuckles Mountains which... More

My wife and I stayed 3 days in the Madugalle guest house in Feb. The hostess Kumari was extremely helpful and accommodating. She was able to room us for an extra nite that wasn't planned and was able to provide very helpful advice when it came to what was interesting to do in Kandy. Additionally, she put us into contact...

We had booked two nights but left after one. The bed had dirty sheets, and the toilet was used and dirty.... So we changed room, but the bed did not have clean sheets, and the toilet didn´t flush. The lady who owns the place only wants money for everything. She only talked about donations. The breakfast was very basic. One... More

The owner Kumari is delightful and really makes your stay special. The house is an old colonial masterpiece with beautiful furnishings and greenery everywhere. It is terrific, homey environment with warm feelings of kindness... More

This place was the best deal of our entire stay in Sri Lanka. It is basic but clean and in walking distance of all the best sites in central Kandy. Breakfast is included and was very good! Kumari arranged a great driver for us at the last minute for our final four days in Sri Lanka. We can highly recommend... More

This guest house was one of the most expensive accommodation in our trip around Sri Lanka. We were during Perahera 2013 but in our opinion the accommodation is overrated and overpriced even it was Perahera's time. Rooms are small and more than basic, just 2 mattress and sheets, no AC, no wardrobe and just one small table were you could... More
