We really enjoyed our 2 nights here! Despite what the reviews say we found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. Our room was great value for money and had everything we needed. We didn't eat there but had dinner at the nearby No Name restaurant which was nice. Would recommend this guest house if you're on a budget!

This guest house is conveniently located on Saranankara Road which goes uphill from Kandy lake. It takes LKR 250 from the train station to reach this place by tuk-tuk. More importantly, it is within walking distance of Kandy lake and the temple of the sacred tooth relic (which is the highlight of Kandy's tourist attractions). The rooms are fairly basic... More

This is a beautifully decorated guesthouse with a lovely view of Kandy and plenty of sitting space in the common areas. It feels like you're at home. It is located within walking distance of Kandy and the lake, as well as the clock tower bus stand. We stayed two nights, and our budget room was very clean and comfortable. The... More

The room we had was nice with wooden ceiling and windows on three sides of the room. The view was amazing over Kandy and had a balcony. The bathroom was not the cleanest we had in Kandy, in fact, a worm came out of the drain when we were washing (disgusting) but it is a very old building... We "boiled"... More

Very nice guest house with as mentioned in the title good view over Kandy. As it the guest house is a bit higher up the air is smoother. It's comfortable and it's nice to sit on the top-floor sipping on a beer and overlooking the scenery. There are plenty of nice people to talk with at the guest house. The... More

My husband and I spend three nights at this guesthouse which has a good location and is in walkable distance to Kandy town. The house itself is nice with a lot of sitting areas on the two foors,inside and outside. The "cheaper" rooms are overpriced as are all the rooms in this area (we checked a lot of places). Wifi...

When I arrived at this place I was greeted by a friendly young man named Ravi who showed me about the comfortable looking bedrooms, living room and the balconies. I bartered over a room and got a decent double for much less than advertised as I was travelling alone and it was their last room. The place was consistently clean... More

A good choice of rooms was available. My room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The owner was fine. I booked a trek in the Knuckle Ranges with the associated agency. This was good and the guide excellent. I would stay here again if I were to go back to Kandy.

We booked into this room on Lonely Planet's recommendation without reading previous reviews on here about the rude owner. Luckily, for the most part we dealt with what I assume is the main owner's son, and he was really helpful and nice. He showed us to our immaculate room, which had lovely views and basically a private balcony. The bathroom... More

We went to the Expeditor after reading their positive review in Lonely Planet; they responded reasonably promptly to our emails and knew who we were when we arrived. They seemed helpful and friendly, and our room was certainly clean and tidy - but it turned out that the owner will say whatever she knows you want to hear in terms... More
