On arrival were greeted by the manager/owner with a coffee and chat, laid back checkin// Our room had one glass panoramic wall, great view and daylight, room was clean, and serviced daily. Staff were all friendly, helpfull and cheerfull. The restaurant offers you the option of being shown/instructed your curry being cooked. (no charge) Breakfast was ok, eggs sunny side... More

My partner & I did 2 nights here. On first impressions we were very disappointed but during our stay we found a little charm about the place. Evening meals were lovely & the view from our room on top floor was great. I'm not sure about the service that everyone talks about because for us it was pretty poor except... More

I am actually quite surprised to read so many negative reviews about the rooms. We booked the budget room and had a bit of a giggle when we found out that this room was in a separate building 100m up the steepest road I have seen in my life (all though tuktuks do make it up the hill, contrary to...

The place was cheap. We paid only 14€ for the night fit a room for two. However, the beds are really dirty and the room smells like a toilet. The toilet is worse than one of the toilets in a cheap Sri Lankan restaurant. If you just want something cheap and don't care for comfort, it's ok. Else, don't go... More

Very odd location and set up for hotel. It is on a steep hill and a bit of a challenge to get to, but the Views are nice and the food was excellent. Rooms were ok, nothing to write home about. Staff was very good. Lots of monkeys around for entertainment.

We booked the "budget room" and the reservation info mentioned that the room was at 100meters from the main hotel buding. The problem is that this 100m is a walking pathin the middle of the woods, no light and impossible to be done with luggage. The alternative way is by car (tuk tuk could not go up the steep hill...

This hotel is up a very steep hill from the town of Kandy. I suppose it is a walkable trip to town, but with the steepness, and , most of all, the crazy traffic in Kandy, I can't recommend the walk. We stayed in one of the more expensive rooms our first trip through Kandy. It was really disappointing. The... More

Having travelled around India before flying over to Sri Lanka my partner & I had been staying in some seriously cheap accommodation! Wanting to stick to a cheap budget we was searching Kandy hotels & wasn't really getting a lot for our money. Anyway, booked for a budget room with no breakfast as the next room up was an extra...

The staff are really what make this place and were the most helpful and kind people I met in Kandy - always willing to help out. The 'deluxe' rooms have a nice view, but are sorely in need of a coat of paint and some repairs as well. The good news is that it is quiet and the food was... More

You get what you pay for.... Decent accomodation in Kady with nice view and very kind and corteous staff. The breakfast and dinner was good, breakfast waitress and chef very polite and helpful. Hotel offers some trips, we took one for 2500 rupees Kandy trip in Tuk-Tuk - nice almost all day trip which I can recommend, our driver (I... More
