Our guesthouse in Kandy was the Villa 49. Our room was an ensuite, with many amenities only availble in hotels 2 to 3 times the price, including air conditioning, large tv, balcony and a safe. We had both dinner and breakfast there - again very good prices. Dinner was a feast of Sri Lanka home cooking - hot carrot soup...

During our second stay in Kandy we booked Villa 49. It was a lovely little place, easy walking distance to the centre of Kandy. Our room was up graded as the owner had the space - a massive room attentively provisioned, comfy bed and balcony. We had dinner on one of the nights - amazing traditional food, it was delicious!...

I'm glad to have stayed in this place for 4 nights. The room is spacious and clean. Wifi is excellent and the meals I ordered for my dinner were yummy especially the vanilla ice-cream with passion fruit. The staff is friendly and made me feel at home. If you're in doubt where to go or what to do, you can...

Stayed there for 1 night only but felt at home already. We usually stay in 'normal' hotels because we always thought that staying in a guesthouse coule be awkward but when we read the reviews about Villa 49 we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed! The room (8) was spacious, nothing fancy but spotless and...

Villa 49 is a lovely place to stay that I would recommend to other couples who are looking for a quiet place to stay in Kandy. The rooms are clean with all standard amenities, somewhat basic but to be expected considering the price of rooms. The location of villa kandy is good, in walking distance to the lake and city...

We had such a great stay at Villa 49, it's a shame we only had one night. On arrival we were offered tea and ginger biscuits whilst our bags were carried to our room. We were told we had been upgraded which was great as the room was fantastic with huge balcony looking down towards Kandy lake. The staff and...

This guesthouse in Kandy is beautifully managed & run by the owner and her very professional staff. Our room & ensuite were nicely furnished and generous in size. Nice views of surrounding hill from one of our 2 balconies. The staff are most helpful & the owner makes an effort to chat with you during dinner or breakfast to ensure...
