We booked this place in advance just because it was our first night when we arrived to Sri Lanka. What a terrible mistake ! There are many more options all around Kandy with the same price. Fortunately we stayed only 1 night. There was only one more couple, the room was dirty, don´t even talk about bathroom, just disgusting.. The... More

We decided to go to this place because it was kind of cheap, and for our low budget travelling it was a good option! But from the beggining it became a nightmare: in the website it says is about 15min walk from the bus terminal, lie! it took us 50min up the hill, without any help as nobody seemed to... More

In short: do not go here. Do not make the same mistake as us. We were a group of three staying in one room. The only positive thing about the whole stay was that the room was big but it didn't really help as we didn't want to stay there at all. During our three nights of this disasterous stay... More

The location of hill way is pretty as it's on the hill but a little inconvenient as a tuk tuk is almost essential to get into town. The family who run the guest house are very nice and hospitable. We were in a room upstairs with a nice shower with hot water but the bed was very very uncomfortable and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and payed 1500 for the room per night. They also have a menu and serve drinks. Note that everything has 10% charge of service including the room. We also did the laundry (not big) and it was Rs 425. The owners are very nice and helpful, even if they don't seem at the first... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and quite liked it. It was good value for money all in all we ended up paying 12 000 Rs including breakfast. The inn is run by Mr. and Mrs. Silva, but the boss seems to be Mrs. Silva. She was always asking us if everything is OK and if we needed anything. The... More

The sheets were dirty. There were cockroaches in the bedroom & shower room There were worms on the floor in the bathroom Irritatingly they kept turning off the... More

The owners were very friendly! The place was old, dusty and not the cleanest, however for one night and for the price... I can't complain! We stayed here to visit the Kandy festival and had a great time! The breakfast was cheap and nice! Note: the shower had only two temperatures.... Cold and boiling!! Also.. order some tea! It was...

The location is good. Right above the Kandy lake, its a nice walk in the city center (ca. 20 min). Room are very simple and everything is old, but its clean. The room had warm water. The staff is friendly and helpful. When we paid our bill the amount was too high, but after a small discussion the owner changed... More
