Is quite close to the golden tooth and close to the supermarket as well as a good good and cheap restaurant bamboo. No parking possible. rooms very basic but clean, ironing possible, cloth drying rack. The price was quite high. But this might be normal for Kandy in high season.

The Kandyan View Rest is run by Ajit who is ably assisted by Mala. The hotel is situated just above the better known Hotel Thilanka and is a much cheaper alternative with the same spectacular views over the lake. Rooms are spotlessly clean and management obviously take a great pride in making guests as comfortable as possible. There is a...

We stayed 2 night with Ajit and Mala. Kandyan View is a real Rest above the city. Located right above Hotel Thilanka ( first time a little difficult to find, but mention Thilanka and everybody knows it). Easy 10 min walk into town ( back a Tuktuk :)). The guesthouse has a nice roofterrace with beautiful views. Mala and Ajit...

We had a wonderful stay! The owner does his absolute best to make you feel at home! We also booked a tour to the surrounding temples in a three wheeler, which was splendid. The rooms were spotlessly clean. We stayed with a family of 5 (2 adult and 3 children) in 2 rooms, so we had a whole floor to...

For the room we had a whole level to us including a clean large bathroom, bedroom and a large living/dining area with a huge view of all temples, the big Buddha and lake Kandy. A very nice, clean and well run guest house. The person running the place, Ajmit, is very genuine and helpful. The breakfast is fresh and well...

I’m a woman travelling with two teenage children. I was so disappointed in my decision to stay at Kandyan View Rest. It was everything that the bad reviews said and more. I shouldn’t have ignored them. You will see by my other reviews that I always try to be fair in my commentary. The owner will not respond well to...

After a long online search we decided to book Kandien View Rest through booking.com purely based on the positive reviews. I must say it was the best decision to choose this lovely small place; it has breath taking views of Kandy city on one side and small rain forest (udawatta Kalle) to the other. You might see occasionally wild animal...
