Me any my girlfriend stayed at this place in November. The location amid of Kandy was great for us to have a walk in the evening. The staff were super friendly. I was impressed how the man on the reception carried our heavy luggage two floors up, since there was no elevator to our room. Striding by the reception, we felt as passing a living room of a Sri Lanki home. We were then told, that it started as a small guest house and now it is extended to a hotel with about 20 rooms. This is unique. The view from the rooftop pool is impressive. The breakfast in the morning, which costs 5 dollars was one of the best breakfasts we had. The room was big and clean. We can recommend this place for a stay in Kandy.

This little family run dream, turned into the modern hotel it is today is perfect for the 1-3 night traveller. We were given an upgrade on arrival, which is always nice. It’s location is great, right in the middle of everything you would want to see and walking distance to all. Train station only a 5 min walk away too! The rooms were nice and clean, plenty of common areas to sit and read! Wifi was ordinary - but we didn’t really need. The rooftop pool and restaurant was the cherry on top!!

Rooms are small but the location is amazing. The roof top pool adds character and great place to meet others traveling around. The rooms are clean and ours opened up onto a cute balcony garden. I really liked my stay here!
