We had a lovely two nights at this warm, friendly homestay near Kandy (20 minute walk or short run-tuk). The evening meal was delicious and adventurous - lots of vegetarian dishes made from local produce. The husband and wife team are genuinely friendly and helpful. There is a nice terrace for relaxing and monkeys occasionally come in to the jungle-garden.... More

You should definitely go here if you like delicious Sri Lankan food, very good hospitality (they helped us with all our questions) and a beautiful garden. These things make the visit really worth. We had a basic room (with mosquito net, attached bathroom, and a small balcony) but we would come back!

We stayed at St Bridgets Guesthouse for three nights in March 2016. It's a really nice property with many flowers and a good location: 10 minutes by tuktuk and 25 minutes by feet away from busy and loud Kandy city center. Rooms are nice, cosy and clean - all with mosquito net which is needed due to the vast open... More

As Kandy town centre is becoming increasingly crowded and packed with hotels and traffic St Bridget's is a good alternative- slightly out of the centre but not too far- a 5-10 minute tuk tuk/car ride. It has a lovely well maintained garden and overlooks a small jungle area- so there is plenty of greenery and nature around. The rooms are... More

Lovely place a 200 rupee (£1) tuk tuk ride out of busy kandy. Very friendly people who offer good advice on how to get around, what to do etc. Very nice balcony rooms, delicious food. Good birdwatching from the restaurant area overlooking giant bamboo plants. The monkeys are regular visitors too. Highly recommended, thank you!

the guesthouse is in a hill a bit outside kandy but it's walkable distance (15-20 minutes). be aware that traffic is a nightmare at peak hour in the area and walking is then faster. the location is awesome and calm, surrounded by a bit of forest and a very pretty garden. the host family is friendly and helpful (the father...

Kandy is busy and noisy so it was a relief to be up in the hills above the town. Very attentive owners checking if everything was satisfactory. Best tea we had during our 3 week trip around Sri Lanka! The owners speak excellent English so making arrangements was very easy. Both the curry dinner and western style breakfast were up... More
