Arranged a one week tour from Colombo to Dambulla and the Ancient Cities, down through Kandy and the tea plantations to Udawaluwe and Tangalle, with Linton/Pradeep. Excellent, prompt communication, clear and affordably priced, I can't fault the pre-trip planning. Although we did not receive the name and number of our driver in advance as expected, we located Chinthaka easily enough... More

NOT RECOMMENDABLE AT ALL: "Blue Haven Tours and Travels" pretend to have the cheapest prices, but then they don't follow the agreements and try to trick you whererver they can (e.g. additional charges for each kilometer etc). In addition, their cars are old - we had to change one tire, the AC was leaking etc. and then due to motor... More

So many good memories in Sri Lanka, Kandy, Matale temple, Spice garden, Sigirîya, Dambulla temple, Adam's Peak, Botanical garden in Peradeniya, Tea factory and plantation... A very good point is that the English of our guide/driver Suranga was easy to understand and he always tried to reformulate when we didn't understand something. Thanks to that, he explained us so many... More

Stayed three nights and they were comfortable, relaxed ones. The views over the surrounding area are great, especially during breakfast. The noise of barking dogs not so good - but that's a feature of Sri Lanka that's hard to avoid. The room, with balcony, was clean and comfortable. And I suspect good value. I guess you need to request your... More

We spend 4 nights in this guesthouse. We booked a "deluxe" room, but overall, the room was very basic and rather small for 2 adults and 1 child. The bathroom is ok, shower was ok. Due to the weather conditions (nonstop rain during our stay), everything was humid in the room (our clothes, but also the bed sheets). The view... More

We stayed there for two nights. Got a free pick up from Kandy trainstation and had a warm welcome by the Hotel Manager. The Room was clean. The Food they cooked was probably the best we had on out whole trip. The Hotel offered a very cheap daytrip around Kandy and the Elephant Orphan by tuk tuk. Highly recommend this... More

Our room at the second floor was simple but clean, mouldy shower curtains and shower hanging loose but water was warm and shower strong enough. The view was very nice and the pool cool, bathing beds a little shaky. Beds very comfy, excellent matrasses. Breakfast nice, dinner nice. What broke our hearts however was to see and experience that the... More

We booked a one day tour from Kandy to Sigiriya, Dambulla & Matale with Blue Haven and the whole trip was perfect. Lalinda was a very good driver and helped us with his advices about the places visited. He helped us to buy tickets in Sygiria and showed us the way up to the Lion's Rock. We wanted to go... More

The non deluxe rooms were damp, there was water in pools on the floor, poor air circulation. Mouldy shower curtains, air condition units that didn't work and very damp mattresses/bedding. After 1 night in one of these rooms we asked to change, paid an upgrade and moved to the top floor deluxe room. These have recently been built and so... More
