“Wonderful place with family atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

If you are looking for a calm and friendly place in Kandy, Forest Glen is the right choice for you! We planned to stay only for one night but finally we stayed much longer. The breakfast was delicious and we were given all information we needed during our trip.

It was only by chance that I ended up here. It was the ideal place for me to have time out. The rooms are basic but very clean. Indira and her family are so lovely. They really cared for me in so many ways. It was incredible to have monkeys outside and sometimes on my window sill. Such a wonderful location. I'll be back to my Sri Lankan family. No doubt about it.

+ If you're looking for a calm place with home atmoshere it's good one to stay. The Lady-Owner is kind and polite person. The food is wonderful. There are large and spacious rooms, dinning-room in the hotel. The view from veranda is great forest, you can really enjoy the nature and the life. Amazing sounds of beautiful singing of the birds. Air is fresh and easy to breathe. No people. No WiFi, but they have Inet. I loved this place!

I stayed in this family owned guesthouse in transit after a retreat in the mountains of Kandy. The location is superb : still in the middle of nature an yet very close to the city center (an ideal switch from silent retreat to the lively city). The lady of the house is very helpful : she adapted to our wishes and made us feel at home. The food was excellent (curries, vegetables) and I felt like dining with my family. I received a large room with a fantastic view. I liked the colonial style of the rooms.
Certainly value for money!

Room Tip: ask for the room with balcony : beautiful view!

It was a very pleasant stay in this gesthouse with perfect location (it is in the forest but only 10 minutes walk from the city) . The owner is very nice and helpful. Homecooking here is excellent - try vegetarian rice and curry and herbal tea :)

Definitely my favourite guesthouse in Sri Lanka so far.
The rooms are spacious and very clean, the commons are beautiful and make one feel at home (or rather, at grandma's).
The verandah is perfect to relax and enjoy the sight and sounds of the forest.

It was nice to stay in this well-maintained family home. The location is too good - amid dense jungle and still just one kilometer away from the heart of the city. The food was very good too. The owner willingly served us the food we requested for. Rooms are basic but comfortable.
