The praise received in other reviews is well deserved. My husband and I stayed here for five nights in late January. The staff were well trained and caring. Kalum, the young man who was always cleaning, cooking, making tea and answering our countless questions about Kandy and public transport stood out even more. He was caring, welcoming and pleased to... More

This place is utterly fantastic. We had an unusually complicated stay in Kandy recently so I'll start with the aspects of this guesthouse that most people will want to know. First of all, this place is so clean you could eat off the floors. It's seriously immaculate and it's the first thing you notice about the place. I haven't even... More

Staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Lovely building on hillside, on the quieter side of the lake, but still only a ten minute stroll along the north bank to the temple and town centre. Highly recommend the generously proportioned and delicious Sri Lanka breakfast option! Rooms were clean, bright, airy and quiet. Great value. Sarah & David

Anna shanthi is an awesome little villa in Kandy, right by the lake. The owner is awesome and breakfast was very good! For the price of the place it cannot be faulted at all. At the bottom of the road it's on is an awesome little restaurant as well, which serves delicious and cheap sri lankan food - sorry but... More

Nice quiet spot just up from the far end of the lake (25 min walk to centre or short tuk tuk ride). Rooms spotless with modern fittings. Hosts wonderful and breakfasts excellent. 5 mins walk from the Garden Cafe, which is superb. Thoroughly recommend.

Our first stop in Sri Lanka and we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The location quiet but an easy walk to Kandy. Kalum couldn't have been more helpful. I would certainly go back
