My friend and I are travelling Sri Lanka for four weeks staying in only Home stay style places as we are on a student budget. This place is by far the best place we have stayed in so far- The rooms are spacious, with amazing facilities and incredible showers! We asked if we could have dinner and they drove us... More

Rooms are basic, but do the trick. Probably not the fault of the guesthouse but there were some very chirpy screaming kids for neighbours that have quite the vocal reach at the break of dawn. And they just don't stop... Well at least you'll be up bright and early.

We were at our wits end searching for a hotel for a group including a wheelchair. Fortune smiled on us finding Malik and the Palm Garden. If you want super service, convivial host and relaxed ambience, you won't be disappointed. Bonus for us, Malik speaks fluent French. Despite the construction works in progress outside, we had a great stay in... More

A very basic, but comfortable and charming guesthouse close to the bus and train station (about 150 rupees for a tuk tuk). You can easily get a tuk tuk into town too and to the bars and restaurants near the lake. The rooms are big and we had a nice veranda. Do not expect anything fancy and you will not... More

My family & I visited Kandy during the busy sinhalese new year, almost all the hotels were fully booked and we were in a panic to find a decent place to stay. I came across palm gardens offcial website and the pictures were somewhat apealing. Upon speaking to the owner Mr Malik, he arranged for us to stay 2 nights... More

If you are looking for a small, charming place, you should go to Mango Garden Hotel! The rooms are bright and clean, and you have a cute little porch. The receptionist is helpful and kind. The guesthouse is only 5 minutes away from the city, and you can walk to the supermarket. A big plus is the mosquito nets!!

We stayed 2 nights here- it is very basic- there was a pretty crazy ant problem in the bathroom, which was separate to the bedroom, so it didn't bother us too much. Good hot shower and nice airy room. Not right in Kandy town, but great getting a tuk tuk in. Very cheap and good breakfast provided. Made our backpacking... More

This is the first time I have actually not stayed somewhere after checking in. We stayed long enough to book a room elsewhere and left. Dirty, smelly, broken furniture in the room, a long way from where advertised and bugs everywhere (where we hadn't seen them elsewhere in Kandy!) a real shame as the rest of the trip has been...
