I stayed 2 nights and felt almost like home in this small hotel. The place is great, you fell you are in a big house. Nice pool and patio in the back. The rooms are really modern and confortable. The place is not close to restaurants but the food was amazing. I had my 2 dinners at the hotel. The... More

Just spent the last 7 nights at this lovely little place, and I can not recommend it enough. It's a small hotel only 7 rooms. The best thing about this place is the staff, nothing is too much trouble. Charley the manager is a great host and went to a lot of trouble to make our stay enjoyable. It's located... More

Clove villa was one of the six hotels we stayed in during our three week trip to Sri Lanka. It was a comfort standard hotel however the very friendly staff and service easily bumped it up for us. The manger was always on hand to assist us no matter what time of the day. The room itself was clean and... More

We really enjoyed our stay and highly recomend a stay here. Small and friendly with amazing food. Nothing was to much trouble for the manager. Lovely room and very quiet. Very relaxing place to stay whilst visiting Kandy and the surrounding area. We would definately stay again. Just remember to take your own alcohol if you want a drink in... More

Pros Location outside city center in a calm area. Only a few rooms, relaxed atmosphere. Bathrooms of high standard. Service in general very attentive. Cons Food just average. The quality/price ratio is not satisfying in our opinoin, but this is a general issue in Sri Lanka.

Having spent a couple of weeks travelling around Sri Lanka and looking at a number of different hotels we settled on this one and could not have been happier with the service! Charly prepared incredible dinners - honestly some of the best food which we had in Sri Lanka, and was fantastic is giving local advice and advising us on... More

This is an intimate villa just a cab ride from the centre of Kandy. The innkeeper Charly and the rest of the staff were friendly, cheerful and accommodating. Charly was one of those rare, exceptional hosts who bring coffee while you’re reading on the sofa, who can tell when to chat and when to be scarce, who solves problems and... More

Clove Villa is in a noisy suburb of Kandy; having been a private house it is an odd mixture of rooms grouped around a rather gaunt hall. The Dining Room is very soulless and did not lend itself to easy conversations with fellow guests, a large fish tank was the main attraction. Our room too was lacking character but it... More

It was great to find a quiet and luxurious villa in Kandy away from the noice and trafiic of the city centre. It is only a short drive (about 10 mins) from the centre (either by tuk tuk or a car - you can't walk from the centre, too far from that). The rooms are very spacious, beautifully decorated with...
