Awesome view of Kandy and the lake from big windows in our room. One of the nicest bathrooms we've had on our trip. Clean sheets, clean towels. Room was pretty small. Very honest but grumpy owner - won't try and rip you off but a bit gruff. Lots of choices on the same street so be sure to shop around.... More

We were at this hostel as a family of four (2 adults, 2 children) and had two beautiful rooms next to each other. Both rooms were very clean and beautiful. The view is really great. The staff was very kind and helpful. They also organized a very nice driver to get to the botanical gardens and to a tea factory... More

We are a couple of friends that stayed there 2 nights. The staff is very reliable and very helpful, the rooms are new, clean, good bed..the best you can find in that budget. The restaurant is wonderful, elaborated recipes, wide menu, good quantities and good price. We want to recommend this stay home.

While it is true the owner isn't exactly Mr Sunshine, we did not have any complaints about our stay. The clerks were especially friendly and considerate. We booked the cheapest room for 2000 Rs. The toilet didn't work so we got upgraded to a more expensive room for the price of the cheapest one. The hotel and rooms were clean... More

Prebooked a room two days ago on the phone, agreed to have their "cheapest" room, without a view, for 2500 rupees a night (despite the guidebook suggesting 1000-2000). Turned up this afternoon to find out that a mystery guest who was out all day and therefore unable to verify the story had decided to stay an extra night, meaning we... More

This place looked good when we entered, the manager was very friendly and the rooms were ok, clean but small. The sister of the owner offered us the room for 2000 rupee, we accepted. After this, everything changed. The owner was clearly not happy we got the room for this price and there was absolutely no service left. They tried... More

I wish I saw the reviews before we took a room in this place. We'll it is actually not too bad, the rooms are quit nice and have good beds. It started when we negotiated the room for 2000rp. The managers sister approved to that, but he didn't like that at all!! So then they started asking money for everything,... More

This is a basic hotel with simple rooms and simple breakfast. The view (if you get one) is OK, although there was a huge building being built when we were there, so the view included a crane and lots of construction work. What we didn't enjoy much was the pushy manager. He did help us out on a couple of... More
