We were two backpackers traveling and stayed in Blinkbonnie inn for 5 days. First we were going to stay for 2 days, but the place was so great; the staff and the owner so nice, comfortable beds, view amazing, the restaurant really good and the price good, so we stayed for another 3 days. "Uncle" Steve the manager was really... More

I initially booked 3 nights and later cancelled the first night. The owner emailed a week before arrival saying that there was a "problem" with my room and as such would be moved to their other building around the corner. I agreed as I thought it would be of a similar standard as Blinkbonnie Inn. The other place turned out... More

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 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.

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
