Hi there, yes you can actually get the train to/from Colombo to Kandy. Its a nice journey through the hills and the trains have a variety of different classes. The first class is good value and very comfortable. Do let us know if you need any more information. Thanks, Tim

Hello - sorry for such a slow reply; have only just seen your question. If still interested, the hotel is privately owned and run (by a Kandy family).

"Avoid front room as no terrace and windows out to public veranda."
"all rooms have different view and size..."
"We stayed in the annexe which is a bit more secluded than rooms in the main house."
"Only about 5 rooms, very quiet unless other guests stay up late socialising on the veranda"
"Family room has two single beds and one queen, and a beautiful view."
