We arrived late in Kandy and decided on this hotel last minute. Very glad with our decision! The owner Sarath was wonderfully helpful, advising us on our train journey to Ella the following day and giving us restaurant recommendations. A wise man indeed! The room was comfortable and very clean and the breakfast in the morning was excellent. Good location...

A very clean and well kept guesthouse. Our room was very big and clean with a small balcony. The only negative about our stay was the shower - it was not very powerful. The breakfast was simple but good - fruit, bread and eggs, tea and coffee. The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming and we felt very safe staying...

Dinner was excellent - a variety of Sri Lankan dishes and each one was delicious. Breakfast was self service with plenty of choice. The owners are wonderfully friendly and made us very welcome. We are so...

Fine place, friendly hosts. It i a short nice walk fom the centre. The view is not tht good. You see trees, but not the lake. Unfortunately the Internet is overloaded. Bad or no connection in the evening, fine connection in the morning. We had dinner the first night. Average!

We stayed at Freedom Lodge for 4 days during our tour of Sri Lanka. A good location within easy walking distance of the Lake. The owners Nalina and Saratu were absolutely delightful and very helpful, Nalina cooked a lovely curry for us on the day we arrived as it was pouring with rain. Large clean rooms and very good breakfast....

Very friendly owners, our children loved having their own room and the breakfast was more than enough. Good location, close to the lake and walking distance to Kandy town central. They catered well to our children and were very helpful.

We spent two nights here during the unusually rainy period in late January. The room was large and bright, a cut above typical guesthouses. We ate both dinners there, which were served family style buffet on the outside veranda. The food was good and I particularly enjoyed the very chocolatey ice cream for dessert. The owners have been running the...

I asked for clarification.no reply. So avoid this agency. When I arrived at the hotel I was allocated the cheapest most basic and worst...

Really nice place to stay in Kandy, really clean with beautiful gardens, the location is quiet and safe. The owners son was really helpful and chatty, he even grabbed a coconut from the garden, sliced the top off and gave it to our son to drink!
