It is not a 5 star hotel so don't expect it to be one and remember that you are not paying like a 5 star hotel. I ranked it very highly due to the service and friendliness received from the owner and staff, the atmosphere around the place, the view from the roof terrace, the fresh and delicious meal prepared by the owner at a very reasonable price, the location, which in a quiet and peaceful area on the hill away from the city of Kandy and the friendly advise and guidance given regarding your travelling arrangements or anything else. Not to mention that the price also includes breakfast which consisted of 2 fruits (I had banana and pawpaw), toast and jam, an omelette and coffee or tea. Also for the record, this place hires their staff from small villages way out of Kandy and generally from minor communities of Sri Lanka who would generally struggle to get a job anywhere. They want to give those young adults an opportunity and they also act like a parent to them as they are so far away from their home. The owners are very humble and would certainly be embarrassed if they knew that I shared this about them but it highlights a bit of their character. They shared this journey because of my inquisitive nature.
