Dirty room and toilets with tons of ants. No information from staff. Breakfast with used butter... pool with Dirty water. Wifi working very poorly. Uncomfortable beds. If they could put less attention to the welcome drink and customer's money and more on cleaning and service, probably might improve. Definitely not a recommended accomodation for the price.

We booked a tour and also stayed at the Blue Haven Guest House. The guest house was wonderful, clean and the stuff was very nice and helpful. We also booked a tour (it was a bit pricey) and we got a wonderful driver Saman. He was very helpful, nice and he has a very good sens of humor. He helped... More

We didn't stay at the Guest House, but did book a 10-day tour of Sri Lanka through the Blue Haven tour service. Saman, our driver, picked us up at the airport in Colombo and took care of every detail of our trip. His English is excellent, and he was extremely helpful. Whenever we needed anything (a good restaurant, ideas for... More

We stayed here for one night to explore the city of kandy. Room is very basic but clean. The bathroom needs improvement. The breakfast was nice and the staff was really friendly. They took us to town by car after waiting 20 minutes for a tuktuk driver that didn't show up.

I did not stay at Blue Haven Guest House, but used their tour facilities in a 5 day 4 night trip from Negombo, through Anuradhapura, Trincomalee, Polonnawura, Dambulla, ending in Kandy. Considering the trip was arranged VERY last minute, the coordinator Pradeep was extremely helpful with the many questions I had, and booked up accommodation very quickly. Rohan, my driver/guide...

The Motel is closer to the city centre than you realise. Staff are very hard working and pleasant. Meals are good. Our room No6 had a blocked sink and the bathroom floor was disgusting. Each deck area has its own nice lounge seating area and the pool is fun but cold. Transport is always on hand.

We used Blue Haven Travel for a five day tour around Sri Lanka! Rohan was the best driver, he looked after us (four girls) and drove safely as well as introducing us to local delicacies on the side of the road and adding other pit stops to our tour that we thoroughly enjoyed such as white water rafting in kithulgala....

Based on the reviews on tripadvisor we selected this hotel. But be warned by this review. There are quit a lot of reviews not related to the accommodation but to the tours they offer. It seems these tours are excellent. The hotel however is a nightmare. Essentially we planned to stay just one night at Kandy but we changed our... More

After all those wonderful reviews I must admit I am a little disappointed. Maybe because the place is A little far away from the city. If you have a deluxe room everything is perfect but you have to put the price far far higher than in other places like sigirya or andhanapurah.

The Blue Haven Guesthouse is a good place to stay at. Friendly staff, ok rooms, a pool and a good breakfast. It is a good 15-20 minute (downhill) walk to town, return can better be done by tuktuk. This place by all means met the expectations that we had beforehand, but didn't really exceed them, consequently the 3 star rating.
