After reading all the great reviews, I was so disappointed with my stay at Spica. The rooms were well worn, not so clean and overpriced.
On top of this, the host Grandpa Tillek was always complaining. For instance, when I first arrived, he complained that guests come from the train station, take a look at the rooms and turn around and leave (that should tell you something). Also the breakfast at 450 rupees is a rip off. When I ordered, grumpy grandpa told me I could have cheese with my eggs or onions & tomatoes, but not both!
I had a cheaper room downstairs, with no aircon, no tv, and no view. I went outside to sit in the garden and the view there was nice, but the gazebo had a broken bench and an empty, dirty fish tank. With so many options in Kandy, there is no reason to stay here. Also NO WIFI.
