Good: I booked a single room with private shower, what I got was a shared dormitory and shared shower. The owner was very understanding and things eventually got sorted out. The hotel’s about 2 km from the town centre, which is a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute walk downhill to get bus 622 to the centre for USD...

We stayed in the Blue Haven Guesthouse in Kandy for two nights, which was modest but great if you don't fancy a big hotel. The food was good, and the room big and clean. There are almost no good restaurants or bars in Kandy, therefore choose your guest house or hotel wisely, as most tourists eat where they stay. Ask...

Our room (7) was in desperate need of an update, paint was old and peeling and the mosquito net had many repairs. Unfortunately there must have been a dump behind the hotel which made our room stink of cabbage unless we kept the bathroom door shut. Also if you stay here bring ear plugs as the dogs were very noisy!...

We stayed at the Blue Haven Guest House as part of a private tour we booked through Blue Haven Tours. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, and the staff pleasant and helpful. It's the average type of guest house accommodation we stayed at on our trip - nothing fancy but perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay. We also ate dinner...

One might be accused of being picky, but hey, I have standards (sometimes) and those standards mean that certain establishments sometimes don't make the cut. Blue Haven was one such establishment. I am led to believe I was allocated a deluxe room, but I do feel they made a mistake and upgraded me to a super-deluxe theme room instead. Sadly...

Place is very convenient and affordable. Plus is that they can arrange full tours for you which are very affordable. Their taxi service is excellent with English speaking driver who are extremely friendly and helpful. Guesthouse is nice and the staff is really nice. However when it comes to comfort level, there are few issues. First one is the street...
