We have had another wonderful stay at the Holiday Home in Kandy. We have stayed regularly for the past 10 years. We always look forward to coming back to see old friends and to enjoy the authentic Sri Lankan experience offered by the staff and the hotel. We consider it to be excellent value for money. It offers simple and...

Lovely hotel in the suburbs of kandy. A welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the centre of town, along with great views from the veranda over the forest and river. Delicious breakfast every morning served on the veranda and we'll decorated and comfortable rooms. The staff here are incredibly friendly, and were even kind enough to wash and...

This place is relaxing and wonderful. The management and the staff were polite and professional. Our room was lovely and very clean. The area was quiet and the views off of the balcony and from the dining area were beautiful. The food was good & reasonably priced. Yes, they are located outside of the city in a beautiful neighborhood. We...

This guest house is definitely a little bit outside of Kandy but boasts magnificent views! Also, you get away from the hustle of the Kandy traffic, night time noise, etc. My husband and I loved staying there. It was a home and we sat down to dinner each night with other guess and had a family meal. We loved the...

We stayed there for one night. Our driver booked it as part of our tour, and since he was driving us into town, the location wasn't too much of a problem, however if you do not have your own driver, you will struggle to get around. The hotel is in a fairly secluded location, so, not easy to find, but...

The rooms are simple but enough if you stay for 1-2 nights. And with a nice view. Unfortunately its 2km or more of walking uphill to the city centre on a roads withought a sidewalk so can be tyring. And there is nothing around so you really have to go to the city :)

We have recently returned from our twelfth visit to Sri Lanka, and each time we pass through Kandy we always stay at the Kandy Holiday Home. The guest house provides an excellent introduction to Sri Lankan accommodation away from the uniform and often characterless western style hotels. It provides basic, clean, and friendly accommodation. The manager, Roshan, speaks very good...
