We booked into this room on Lonely Planet's recommendation without reading previous reviews on here about the rude owner. Luckily, for the most part we dealt with what I assume is the main owner's son, and he was really helpful and nice. He showed us to our immaculate room, which had lovely views and basically a private balcony. The bathroom... More

We went to the Expeditor after reading their positive review in Lonely Planet; they responded reasonably promptly to our emails and knew who we were when we arrived. They seemed helpful and friendly, and our room was certainly clean and tidy - but it turned out that the owner will say whatever she knows you want to hear in terms... More

I didn't book a room ahead, when I arrived they had two rooms left downstairs. The room was ok, I asked if breakfast was included and the man said yes but when I checked out, it turned out it wasn't included and I had to pay for the three breakfasts I had. That way, I think everything was a little... More

We checked into this hotel only to find a dead cockroach in the bathroom, cockroach droppings everywhere, and the sheets were dirty. The owners cleaned the room after we asked but it would have been nice if the room was clean before we checked in. Location was ok butbut it was up a hill around 10 minute walk to Kandy... More

I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of July 2015. The room and bathroom were cleaned to a good standard and the bed was king size. The room also had beautiful views and had lots of windows to make it light. The shower was also really good as it was powerful and hot - the first hot shower... More

Everything was fine except for the attitude of the owner, who seemed to view us as a mix between cash machines and a huge inconvenience to her. Never ate there as the food at the Sharon Inn next door was awesome

We stayed in the hostel for one night (instead of 2, because we left). We left because there was so much noise at 7am. The rooms were ok, fairly clean only the mosquito net was really dirty. The location is fine, bit far from the center but it's able to walk.

I spent 3 nights at the Expeditor Inn while travelling around Sri Lanka. The owner and family are incredibly friendly and offered an abundance of information on the local area, treks and flora and fauna. The rooms were fairly well kept if just a little dated. The house is a short 5-minute stroll (up-hill) from the lake in Kandy. I'd... More

Expeditor is a family running accomodation with various types of rooms. It is located approx 1,2km from the Kandy center, in a quiet neighbourhood. We ´ve spent 3 nights in here, and were satisfied, as the room was clean and price was adequate to the room quality. Lady-owner is experienced traveller, and can advice in terms of trips around the... More
