I was a female solo traveler and I have to say that I am very grateful to Stephen at Blinkbonnie for his suggestions, tips and organization for me during my trip. When I first arrived, he was quick to offer me guidance and tips on traveling alone, and as I had no other plan for the next few days (I... More

It was amazing to stay in this hotel for 1 nights, I enjoyed it with my wife, from the balcony we can see all the green nature around, the mountains. They have a friendly staff who is always smiling and serving the best.

The rooms were small but neat and clean, worth of the money you pay. Being at hill it give you marvels wide angle view. TucTuc is the only... More

The proprietor at this property os extremely welcoming and has excellent English. He will collect from the town centre as well which would be very welcomed after a long bus journey (if only we had known!) The first thing he did was warn us of all the scams and advised how much Tuk Tuks should cost etc which was great.... More

Stayed here for one night. Rooms are clean and comfortable and food is nice. Trip was arranged for us at a reasonably good deal. Not far from the town, about 10mins down the hill, through the shortcut. Lovely views. Would recommend this guest house.

The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. A mosquito net was provided too. The bathroom was clean and hot water available. We stayed on the top floor and our room had an amazing view over Kandy. The manager was excellent and gave us all the information we asked for when planning our trip. He was really helpful and friendly. We... More

Stephen was very helpful. He arranged a driver to collect us from Colombo airport at 3am, and when we arrived had our room ready for us to check in early at no extra cost. Room was clean and perfectly adequate. Shower wasn't great, a dribble, but it was warm. Breakfast was good.

I thought the rooms were very clean, although basic, and ours had a beautiful view over Kandy. I thought the location was pretty good, although it was a little walk down the hill, via the short-cut to the town centre. Overall I thought it was a nice place to stay. My main gripe was that this was the only place... More

We came here for dinner by recommendation of our driver. We are vegetarians. We were not disappointed. The local vegetable dishes we ate were well cooked and each one had its own distinct flavour and texture. Service was attentive. Moderate cost. Good value. We would eat here again.

The room was large, very comfortable and absolutely clean. The balcony was nice and we liked the great view over the whole city of Kandy with its lake. At first the hotel seemed to be a little too far away from the city center but there are shortcuts which the friendly staff will explain you. Therefore it was very quiet.
