“Simple, clean rooms with good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

A friend and I stayed here for one night during a short tour of Sri Lanka. I have lived here for over a year and stayed in a few guesthouses in the country. This is a good choice if you are looking for a simple, clean room at a decent price. Everything worked properly and the beds were comfortable. This is not a luxury hotel, but a good, simple place with friendly staff. It is in a good location near the lake. It would be a 15 minute or more walk to town or a very short tuk-tuk ride.

Well located in the city centre next to the lake. We had a room (8?) at the top of the house with a lovely high ceiling. The view wasn't great (it looked on to the back of other properties) but we could have no complaints on the standard of accommodation, service or food.

Recommended.

Ok for quick stay, room we had not AC so was very hot in the night for us and not a lot of sleep. We're meant to have AC but tour obj didn't book it. Rooms ok, had everything we needed. The tea was very good unlike some other hotels. View of lake was lovely if in the right room ( unfortunately we we not) staff very good. Room wasn't cleaned though so had to ask for fresh towels and paper.

Room Tip: Ask for balcony facing the lake.

This hotel is located beside the Kandy Lake, and is a 10 or 15 minute walk to the commercial/retail area of Kandy. About 10 to 12 minutes to the Temple of the Tooth.

The rooms were clean and big, but the hot and cold water showers were a mystery of god. In the afternoon, even the cold water was hot, and in the morning, the hot water was lukewarm at best. I can only assume that they are using some form of direct solar heating of the water.

The staff were variable with the Manager very affable, but the junior staff member looked like he was there under sufferance if his ambivalence to customers was anything to go by.

A value for money proposition.

Room Tip: Front rooms for the view, back rooms for no road noise.

The rooms were very clean. The staff were very cheerful and helpful. The location is good as it is facing the Kandy Lake and it is in the city center. Will definitely come back to stay here again.

My guide suggested this place as the more well known hotels had no vacancies. I was a bit apprehensive but in fact it was, although a bit spartan, an excellent choice. Rooms are clean with satellite TV and good shower facilities. Room had no aircon but that was okay at night in January. You are not likely to sit in the room in the daytime given there is so much to see in Kandy.

Property is on the side of the lake opposite Temple of the Tooth - an easy walk but a busy road. I needed earplugs at night (light sleeper) but that was fine. Good value for $30 B&B.

Room Tip: During hotter time of the year would need aircon. I imagine rooms at the front could be noisy for a...
