During the morning we made a reservation by phone. We agreed on a price for 3 days. Once arrived in the evening a very unpleasant surprise was waiting for us. They suddenly didn't have a standard double, like we reserved, but we could get a deluxe double room instead. The only thing they didn't change was the so called price... More

We stayed two nights in the Blue Haven guesthouse in Kandy. The location is beautiful: in the hills with an extraordinary view. After the nights in the guesthouse we made a tour with Blue Haven tours of five days. We visited adams peak, nuwara eliya, Ella, uda Walawe national park and yala national park. It was great! Our driver Ajith... More

We've stayed here for 1 night and it was horrible. Don't believe what they say on their website, coz that's picture perfect. What's wrong in this accommodation? 1. Coachroaches all over the place 2. Tiny bathroom 3. No hot water (so you'll have a very cold shower) 4. No water pressure so the shower only had 2 tiny streams of... More

The staff are extremely friendly, and the guesthouse overall was great. A wonderful view across to the mountains from our balcony. Food for breakfast and dinner was wonderful. We wished we could have stayed longer than a night.

had a brilliant 4 day tour with Blue Haven Tours in June. My driver Chinthaka Silva was absolutely brilliant, and my pre-trip arrangements with Mr Linton (the owner of the company) were fantastic. Everything was delivered as promised and for an excellent price. Chinthaka not only acted as a great driver (no mean feat on the roads of Sri Lanka)... More

We spent 2weeks in Sri Lanka over the Christmas holidays (high season). As there were many places we wanted to visit in Sri Lanka in a short time requiring to cross the country from west to east, north to south, we quickly decided to hire a driver as it would not have been manageable with local public transportation (too slow)....

Myself and my fiancé have just finished a 9 day tour with Blue Haven! And we cannot thank them enough for everything. We flew in to Colombo and the driver was waiting with a sign with our name on when we came through the arrivals hall. Everything was made easy and was very efficient. On our tour we visited Kandy,...

We would like to write about our excellent driver Saman who looks like a national guide. We spent a very good week travelling from kandy to uppuvelli with him. Thanks to his knowledge, he teached us a lot of things about srilankan culture, history, religion... he took Us along local restaurant where we would have never been alone. Very helpful,We... More

The staff is friendly and helpful yet the drain-water from the bathrooms are let out to neighbouring properties, which in turn gives a foul smell. The owners could do a bit to make the surroundings more hygienic and pleasant.

This review is not for the Blue Haven Guest House, but for the driver I hired through Blue Haven Tours and Travel. Public buses in Sri Lanka are in bad shape and are overcrowded, so the best way of saving time and for your safety is to hire a driver. I hired a driver for 7 days (2 days from... More
