We, 3 students from Germany, spend our last days of our Sri Lanka journey in Kandy. The Heights Inn was recommended to us from our friends from the University of Peradiniya.
The Guesthouse has just been opened a fiew weeks ago (May 2013) and is a nicely rennovated Whitehouse.
Every room has an access to a garden with a beautifull view over Kandy and the surrounding mountains.
The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are clean (showers with hot water).
The owner helped us a lot to organize our daytrips arround Kandy and also liked to play pool or have a drink in the evening with his guests. Due to his stay in Great Britain his english is very good and we really enjoyed our time with him.
Meals and Tee have been arranged whenwever we asked for it. (Sri Lankan food as well as western food)
From the Heights Inn you arrive the city center of Kandy within 10 minutes by TukTuk (Threewealer round about 350 Rps) and lots of other tours, Sigiriya, the Knuckles, Adam's Peak are possible.
The Hotel owner helped us to arrange transport wherever we wanted to go and had some great suggestions for our daytrips.
Whoever wants to enjoy personal service and a place to relax should visit the Heights Inn in Kandy.
We hope to come back.
