We stayed one night at this place and it was OK. The house has a nice antique flair and great views from the balconies, but our room was a bit dark and slightly noisy due to having an uncloseable opening towards the staircase. In comparison with other hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka, it was definitely overpriced, although that... More

At first this place seemed perfect. The lady who owns it seems so nice, as did the room (next to common area). On our first night we were woken up at 5am by a couple of people in the common area just outside our room. The noise increased until eventually there was a big group of people congregating right outside... More

The room we were put into was very uncomfortable. It was near the common area and the women working there had no regard that someone might be sleeping or trying to sleep at 7am. The two beds pushed together had a large gap in middle and as a couple it was impossible to sleep. The woman also gave me the... More

Nice guest house 250 meters south of lake (walking distance to centre, bus and trains stations and Temple of the Tooth) Good prices different rooms have very different prices (but overpriced breakfast)

Another guest and me went on the trekking trip to the Knuckles Ranges. Actually the organisation was well-done, as they are doing it for about 30 years. The jeep that drove us there was really good, the staff was really taking care of us and were all really nice. The reason why it got only three out of five stars... More

In the middle of Kandy (5 min. To the centre), but away from the noise and bustle of the city and with a view of Kandy Lake and the Temple of the Tooth. Expeditor is a homey guesthouse, with clean and lovely rooms, and a very welcoming host. In the morning you'll wake up with the monkey in the trees... More

Expeditor has very nice, clean and comfortable rooms, we had double with Mosquito net, Fan and bathroom for 3000RP. Bed was the best we had experienced for the trip. There are several hotels on this steep road but... More

I stayed 4 nights at the Expeditor and found it a great place. There are rooms to suit every budget...2 rooms at 1500lkr and they share a bathroom, then the other en suites are 2000, 2500,3000,3500lkr depending on their location and size. I didn't have breakfast as it was very expensive compared to what is available elsewhere. However I found... More

I've just spent three lovely nights at the Expeditor Inn. The rooms were spotless. Clean sheets, comfortable pillows and mattresses, hot showers and large spacious rooms. The family who run the inn were among some of the nicest people I've met during my time in Sri Lanka. They were endlessly accommodating, bringing has complimentary tea and asking us about our...
