Turned up and managed to get the room without a view but en suite for rs 2000 after a bit of bartering. The room is basic with a good mosquito net and hot water. The family who run this b&b are nice (although it was pretty noisy when we were there due to them having friends over). Beware of the... More

This lovely guesthouse is just up the hill from the beautiful lake and also in walking distance to the centre of Kandy. It's clean, comfortable and run by friendly people. And it's cheap! Great value for money!

We only stayed one night here in Kandy and it met all of our needs. Good location up the hill (10min walk up from the lake), and great views although a new hotel build in front seems to be on the verge of disrupting this. Chanti was extremely helpful in arranging a taxi/guide (Bernard) and itinerary for our onward journey... More

The hosts are very friendly and Chanti speaks a very good English which you do not see very often in Sri Lanka. The rooms are ok and predominantly clean, but you have no special or nice atmosphere and you share a balcony with other rooms. The breakfast was quite poor - my fruit plate was just a banana and one... More

I was travelling from Ella and on the train and intended getting off at Hatton, but enjoyed the train so much I kept going until Kandy. Consequently I hadn't booked accommodation and just picked somewhere out of the guidebook and phoned to book from the train without reading any reviews. This was the worst accommodation I stayed at in Sri... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on the groundfloor first room near the gate. It was a clean basic room with shared bathroom but a little bit noisy in the morning (next to the gate). We payed 2500 rupi. they did our laundry for 1000 rupi. And it was 50 rupi for 2 hours wifi. The old lady arranged a... More

Having visited Kandy several years earlier I had a pretty good idea of the neighborhood but had not stayed here previously. I had called ahead from the airport in Colombo to ascertain availability, and arrived in what seemed like the middle of the night. Nevertheless, my room was ready. In addition to a clean, comfortable room and good vibes on... More

Wasn't sure about this place after reading the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Clean, comfy room with hot water and strong wifi connection (for a nominal fee-50rps for 2hrs). The room price varies depending on what level you stay but everywhere around the place has a really homely feel and is nicely decorated. Would definitely go back if staying... More
