We were the first guests arriving in Kandy's Cottage, the day after the new manager (Kumar) and his wife Yoga arrived in their new home. Big surprise. Even more, because it was the day before Tamil/Singhalese New Year.
Although they were obviously not yet settled in, they did everything to make us feel at ease.
The cottage itself is nicely and very quietly located (especially if you have your own transport; otherwise it is also easy to call for a tricycle) and gives a real homy feeling.
We stayed at the moonlit-room (which is not as romantic as you might think), which we shared with a large army of ants (probably still the same as in previous review) and many mosquitos (do use the mosquito-nets !!).
The fixed price (around 4.200 Rs = ca. 25 Euro per night, without breakfast) is not a bargain, but if you want to have a quiet stay in a cosy place with a very nice managers-couple, it is worthwhile.
