We stayed there for one night. Our driver booked it as part of our tour, and since he was driving us into town, the location wasn't too much of a problem, however if you do not have your own driver, you will struggle to get around. The hotel is in a fairly secluded location, so, not easy to find, but... More

The rooms are simple but enough if you stay for 1-2 nights. And with a nice view. Unfortunately its 2km or more of walking uphill to the city centre on a roads withought a sidewalk so can be tyring. And there is nothing around so you really have to go to the city :)

Small hotel, in a quiet area of Kandy, offering nice (budget) rooms, clean sheets and towels, hot water. Every room has a big and cosy balcony with large view around. The staff was friendly and helpful - all our requests (and we had many :D) was professionally solved. The hotel offer good wi-fi, laundry services and the best food in... More

We have recently returned from our twelfth visit to Sri Lanka, and each time we pass through Kandy we always stay at the Kandy Holiday Home. The guest house provides an excellent introduction to Sri Lankan accommodation away from the uniform and often characterless western style hotels. It provides basic, clean, and friendly accommodation. The manager, Roshan, speaks very good... More

We stayed there two nights, mostly using our time for planning. We were hoping for good wi-fi, and I guess it was okay, but the signal didn't reach the room. We also were glad they had laundry service, until I got my clothes back and they had tried to iron my pants, and left a huge mark. They didn't say... More

I like to stay close in to the city so that we can walk most places and come home when we please so was a bit disillusioned that this was a good 15 minute tuk tuk ride from town and the traffic is pretty terrible. It's not where it says it is on the map!! Nice surroundings but not for... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights at the beginning of a round trip of South Sri Lanka and we had a really good time here. The rooms are admittedly basic, but homely with one of the two rooms booked leading out to the first floor balcony (the other one had its own, yet small balcony). A great feature... More

The rest of the staff is nice as well. The room itself was OK, but nothing more. It was nice and clean, which was a great plus, and it... More
