The family is really friendly and pleasant, but the rooms are badly furnished, old, cleanliness seemed questionable, shower had no pressure and only cold water was running. The breakfast was kind of small and no fruits served. For this price we have gotten MUCH better places around Sri Lanka. Location - only with your own transport, nowhere to go on... More

Excellent Inn from a time gone by. Excellent service helps you enjoy your vacation as all your needs are met. Nice rooms with different color themes such as Black and White, Blue, Pink, Green and Maroon. The best secret though is the food. Homemade and must be ordered at least one hour ahead because everything is prepared fresh. Food is... More

We had a great stay at the Oak Wood Inn. The owner picked us up in is new car (a nice respite from the polluted tuk tuk rides). The place was modern, spotlessly clean, spacious with great aircon, comfortable beds and nice fresh towels. We had dinner there and the food was homecooked and delicious. The owner even found us...

Our guide arrange green room for us, but unfortunately small water fall makes noise which is not bearable. Guide arrange also local Rice&Curry which was very tasty. Hotel is small, only couple room, five or six. Better choose room with street view. Staff is very helpful. They even had hairdryer which is rear in SriLank hotels.

Although I have not stayed at Oak Wood Inn as I live in Kandy, I have attended many functions there. The staff are experienced and always willing to assist. The food and beverages are above average and leave you with a desire to return. It is a quiet area of Kandy, but easily accessed by motor vehicle or a tuktuk.... More

Now i understand what home stay means and if Oak Wood is any indication then i love the idea. Yes it is called a hotel but it is more like visiting friends. The room was clean and tidy, the amenities are basic but the owner's family hospitality is what makes this a unique experience. If you do take the time... More

Oak wood inn was in a nice quiet area just outside of Kandy. Lovely peaceful accommodation with great Hospitality! Extremely helpful staff and really nice freshly cooked food. Nice trickling waterfall just behind the hotel.About 5 minute drive from the lake which was fine as we had a driver!
