This is a beautiful hotel situated in the hills with magnificent views of both the sunrise and sunset over the distant mountains. Our room had balconies front and rear and offered unobstructed views of both. The rooms were spotless and had everything we needed. The food and service were second to none and you cannot beat an early morning swim... More

Friendly staff, and food was great (especially breakfasts-curry and fruit). Location is lovely, as is the pool and spacious rooms. Offered drinks and towels when we arrived. Views are fantastic from bedrooms. 20 minutes drive from Kandy Temple of Tooth, which we visited on a full moon day which meant we saw Buddhists all come to worship and that was... More

A lovely house set in a rural location with stunning views. The downstairs is beautifully presented and the staff are very attentive. The rooms are average and in need of updating hence the 3 stars. We also felt that although the location was stunning the rooms were overpriced in comaprison to other similar hotels.

This is hotel is fantastic! The room is huge, the pool fantastic, the views delightful and the staff unbelievably friendly. This is lovely place to stay and relax whilst travelling around Sri Lanka, although it is about a 30min tuk-tuk drive out of Kandy so bear this in mind. The breakfasts are huge and I think we had four courses,... More

This is a nice hotel to stay although outside and difficult to find. Call the hotel for directions when you go there. It is a large private house in the mountains with 4 rooms. Very nice staff and quality to stay. A little cooler and wind still nice to have a swim in the pool.

The hotel is about 10Km from Kandy town. Peradeniya gardens is only a few kilometers away. The staff specially Udaya the owener was very friendly and always eager to... More

We spent 2 glorious weeks here June/July of 2015 and were not disappointed. Udaya and his staff were very friendly, attentive and professional in everything they did. They went the extra mile to ensure we were happy, well fed and pampered. Chandanah is the star of the staff--his earnest smile and great demeanor were refreshing as this was our first... More

Yes, the road is a bit rough and, at first, we weren't sure we were going to the right place (your driver can call the hotel for directions), but when you get there the views are so amazing and the property so nicely set up, with friendly and helpful staff, that we instantly forgot about the road.
