Stayed at Kandyan View Rest for 1 night. From booking.com we received 25% off and have had the best stay yet. We had to leave at 02.30am for a train, the hosts made us sandwiches for our trip and still made the effort to get up and see us off. Had great chats with the host, was very helpful and... More

I stayed for 3 nights and liked the place very much. This is a small B&B type of accomodation with a few rooms. It is located on a hill above Kandy town, walking distance from the lake and the tooth temple (you may prefer to take a three-wheeler for the way back, though). The owner is very helpfull and friendly.

Well, if you are lucky and have a room with the view, then your stay is probably unforgettable. However, if you stay in the room without the view, this guest house is rather completely ordinary place. The biggest advantage is that it is clean and the breakfast is tremendous. As regard staff, the housekeeper is a wonderful person, smiling and... More

We statyed our first night here after arriving from the Airport. Kandyan View rest was a good stay with a very helpful owner. The view was very good and the rooms nice and clean (although it smelled a little bit mouldy and the shower wasn't very good). The owner Ajit was very helpful answering any of our questions. Ajit seemed... More

The guesthouse is located on a very steep hill so the upper floors have good views over the lake. However, the standard room is on the ground floor which has limited views. They tell that you can have the whole living room to yourself as the owner and the help live downstairs, but actually they sit on the ground floor... More

My wife and I and two teenage daughters stayed here two nights. Very welcoming, informative host who was great to chat to. Three floors to guesthouse with two rooms on each (with own lounge/ dining room). Breakfast was delicious (fruit, juice, toast , eggs and sausage). Very friendly beautiful dog called jack. Great views over lake.

The breakfast is simple but good, we got fresh juices and toasts, eggs, coffee so no complaints at all it was good. Rooms were clean and the... More

We arrived in Kandy with no plans for accommodation. As Kandy is a very hilly town, looking for rooms is not fun. Finally we found Kandyan View Rest. The owner, Ajit is friendly and personable and gave us some tea on arrival. The rooms were spotless, the AC worked great, and breakfast was good, looking out over the river. The... More

We had a great stay, ajit was most helpful and took the time to understand what we were looking to do in Sri Lanka so he could best advise us. Clean rooms and amazing views whilst having breakfast on the balcony.

First of all for those who are searching for a quick review...room & bathroom are very clean and smell fresh! I saw some negative comments towards the bathrooms etc., those are false or the issues are completely fixed. The place offers a really nice view of the whole Kandy area & hillside in the back! A 10 min walk alongside... More
