I chose to stay at 36 B+B because of what I'd read about the views and they really didn't disappoint, the view over the town really is quite beautiful! We arrived late in the evening after traveling from Colombo and although the owners of the property were away at the time a gentleman called Mahinda greeted us with glass of... More

36 B&B has the best view in town. Located at a higher place very peaceful. We enjoyed having breakfast on the patio and sitting in the balcony admiring the view for hours. Very modern, spacious and clean place. About 10 minutes walk down to the lake and the Temple with the golden roof. Very kind and friendly staff who will... More

Coming down from a 5 star hotel in the hills I wasnt sure what to expect but honestly my partner and I were wonderfully impressed with our stay! The staff were very helpful and helped out with all of our needs. The location is prime, awesome view across the lake and really only a 15 min walk into town down... More

Beautifully furnished house that feels like a home. Tastefully finished with neutral tones and colonial furniture. Very helpful couple provide anything (especially breakfast!) Balcony has an amazing view. Don't let the location put you off. The walk up and down can be very interesting and full of unique opportunities ;) (or they arrange taxi, and the view is worth it.

We spent 3 nights there and the second night we could change our room with no view to the one with nice city view. Anyway, if you don't have the room with view, you can also use the one in the living room ;) The room was quiet, big and clean (above Sri Lanka average), so as bathroom. The breakfast... More

We stayed in the room with no view which was fine a we could, and did, use the living room balcony. It's like a big, comfortable house, a lovely place to stay. But it is far from the centre, we had a car so that wasn't a problem for us. Great service and wonderful breakfast.

Friendly staff, great breakfast, superb view, big and clean room with AC, good bathroom including hot shower. A bit far for walking so we took the tuk tuk to get down to the city (we paid 200 lkr most of the times).

Nice house, good room but we didn't get a wink of sleep. There seemed to be a problem with the waterpump. It put itself in motion every 10 minutes (a leak??) - the noise was terrible. Friendly Staff - they put every effort into breakfast. But we were tired. Beautiful view on Kandy. Overall: could have been good.

We stayed here for one night. Its a small bed and breakfast (3 rooms). The place is located in the hills on the south side and has a lovely view. The rooms are spacious and have nice big bathrooms. The only thing we've missed were the musquito nets. (probably not possibel because of the high sealings).

We stayed 2 nights and our family occupied all 3 rooms, so we had the place to ourselves! Great location overlooking the lake and the city. Large spacious rooms, spotlessly clean, great view, well landscaped garden, large dining room and excellent hot breakfast! What more can one ask for! Its surely a hidden gem!
