“Very poor unpleasant place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

The workers of the place were wonderful but we had a very bad experience with the owner of the place.He was drunk and greedy and imposed himself on us, his guests, and was rude to us as well.
Be carful to make sure what you pay for! They will charge you for the air itself if they could. For example we paid for an AC room and were charged for using the AC! They took the remote control for the AC after we used it. Unbelievable !!!
We were very disappointed to have such a bad feeling leaving such a beautiful city.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with family

It's true that the hotel (Guest house ) located within close proximity to the Kandy town with a scenic view of Hanthana mountain range.
But this is one of the worst places you will find in Kandy. Not recommended for foreigners specially. No Hot water, rooms are not cleaned, staff is not professional at all. Local parties used to drink outside the hotel 24hrs making unbearable noises. Cockroaches everywhere. High rates for food but not tasty at all. Access road is terrible and no enough parking space.

Friendly owner. Initially the room we were in were a bit dirty and not up to scratch. But the owner quickly rectify the situation to move us to room upstairs (which were more expensive) but they gave us discounts. Happy with the service.

Bed sheets and towels were dirty, we were trying to change them but the service staff was no longer available in the evening. The kitchen is open but the guests could not use it for some reason - we took 1 glass hot water for a tea and the manager added it as 10% service charge to our room's bill. We had a weird room with an additional door to the laundry room - which was locked in not a very secured way. The room itself was dirty and not pleasant.
