We arrived, decided it was not for us & left. Victoria Lodge Resort is not a resort. It's a guesthouse in the middle of the Kandyan countryside at the end of a very bad road which makes trips into Kandy difficult. If you like staying in someone's house & spending your leisure time in a family living room watching TV with your host, this is the place for you. If, like me you expect a nature resort to be nicely appointed chalets built on a wide area of natural beauty, this is not the place. True, the gardens are large and great for country rambles , but this is not enough. At $66 per night VLR is very expensive for what it is. After we left, we stayed in a "real" nature resort, where we got real value for money.
