We arrived very late at night to be greated by staff patiently waiting by the guppie fish pond. Every breakfast was grand and much more than we could ever eat. Attentive is too weak of a word to express how good the staff is. Our first night there we didn't sleep well because of barking dogs (which are impossible for... More

We stayed in the family room which had two rooms. One double bed and two singles in the other room. The service was exceptional and the owners are present to help with anything you need. Initially we thought it seemed a little bit of a ride out of town but we very quickly came to appreciate returning to the calm,... More

We have missed the sound of birds, here it was fantastic. Saw squirrels in the gardens too. Kids loved it! Awesome breakfast. Really friendly service. Only 7 mins from the centre of kandy. Highly recommended!

Does anyone have an e-mail of this hotel? I have been searching on line for quite some time, but I cannot seem to find an accurate e-mail address. All help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

this was an amazing find, thanks to trip advisor reviews before we went. we had a warm welcome with home made cakes and tea, including our driver. the room was clean and no insects. The breakfast was excellent,plentiful, and well presented. Short tuk tuk ride to centre of kandy. Very good value and worth staying here.

The Clove Garden features five clean, airy rooms in a pleasant garden setting. We were welcomed with cake and coffee and felt well taken care of throughout our two night stay. Clove Garden's minimalist furnishings look very nice but a few clothes hooks and an armoire in our room would have been welcome. The mattresses are a bit thin and... More

We stayed in Clove Garden, Kandy for three nights in November 2013. We had reserved a double room in Clove Garden through booking.com. The resort is relatively easy to locate by tuk tuk since most tuk tuk drivers had heard of it, but if you plan to walk up from downtown Kandy (a good long walk), it can get pretty... More

We stayed 6 nights at Clove Garden having had a pickup from airport by their driver Kody. The location is very quiet set in a lush garden, and is a 300rps tuk-tuk ride to Kandy or the Botanical Gardens. On arrival guests get some nice carrot cake and tea which was much appreciated after a long journey - other guesthouses... More

The hotel is not so easy to find and not in a central location. But once you have arrived you will love the beautiful garden and the very friendly stuff. They really do all what they can the the guests have a good time. Breakfest and lunch are excellent. The price was very low for Kandy. Rooms are small for... More

We stayed in this hotel when we first arrived to Sri Lanka and absolutely loved everything about the place. The only con is that it is a bit of a walk from down town Kandy. But that is the case for almost all guesthouses in Kandy. However a tuk tuk to the lake will only set you back about 2... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are located within Kandy city limits just 2.5km from the center of the city and 2km from the Railway station.We strive to offer clean comfortable rooms. Our garden is possibly the largest privately held property within the City limits. Theres plenty of bird to greet you in the morning and beautiful tropical trees to keep you cool throught the day. The silence only a private estate can offer will assure you a good nights rest so you can continue to visit what Kandy has to offer. ... more   less
