A little bit difficult to find without instructions so make sure you contact the host before heading to the guest house. The outside of the house does not do justice to the inside. The moment you walk into the property you will WOW. Room clean, spacious with plenty of hot water. Our room also has a balcony overlooking a lovely... More

Although I was travelling with a different tour company, I hadn't really liked any of their accommodation choices so picked my own. I chose Kandy Guest House after looking at the reviews and it didn't disappoint! The setting by the river is beautiful, the sounds of crickets in the evening so relaxing and even the train going past is wonderful!... More

The owner made us feel very much at home and the breakfast that we were served was delicious. The bathroom was clean and plenty of hot water. There was wifi as... More

We spent 2 wonderful nights at kandy guest house. The rooms are part of the families house with really nice balcony/terrace facing to the private garden and small river close by. The owner is very kind and helps wherever possible. He picked us up at the train, offered tours and gave us a lift to a dining restaurant. We had... More

We had a wonderful 3 nights stay here at the Kandy Guest House. It is in a little village off Kandy town but it offers a retreat from the hustle & bustle of life amid flowing streams & sounds of birds & cicadas - rustic charm under the safe shelter of George & his family. They were very friendly and... More

Nice guesthouse in the nature. The family is nice and helpfull for every request. The room is clean with a private balcony on a river and the forest. Very nice if you like the nature. Breakfast is fine and we had also a dinner, real homemade cooking. There aren't shops and restaurant very close but George will help you.

Stay at Kandy Guest house will make you feel at home. George and his wife are very kind and the room is big with a large balcony overlooking the river. I suggest to stay here to feel relaxing and eat the tasty dinner of George's wife. Hope to come again :)

We spent our first night in Sri Lanka here and had possibly the tastiest meal of our whole trip. A properly delicious homecooked Sri Lankan dinner. The guesthouse is located in the hills, around 20 minutes from Kandy – a serene setting with a stream running alongside the back of the house. The accommodation is good, and we felt well... More

The personalized service and quiet setting make for a remarkable experience! George and his family are very welcoming and helpful and are willing to do whatever they can to make your stay better. Though a little far from Kandy town center, it's a very cheap 10 minute train ride or a 20 minute ride by tuk tuk. I would recommend... More
