This is a nice hotel, basic but clean and is a short walk to Kandy lake and all of the attractions. The food is very nice here and the owner very helpful. We got a taxi via the hotel at a reasonable price and the owner also gave us advice on the area which helped.

I stay 7 nights at BlinkBonnie Inn Kandy, it is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. I got room number 8 and it was clean and of adequate size. The bed was quite large and was very comfortable. I find the place really quiet, I didn’t even notice any noise from the road outside and I had no... More

Rooms with a view over the canion give you the feeling that you are miles a way from the bussy city center. It is only a short drive down the hill to the lively city center. The staff is very friendly and speaks english. Even though there were some issues with our reservation, they were solved efficiently and we were... More

The view is awesome, the owner is very helpful, food is good and the rooms are clean. This place was exactly what we wanted. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that I do think the rooms are a little tired and past their best. But you'll still have a comfortable stay.

Situated on a hill overlooking Kandy lake, but only a 15 minute walk down, this Inn on 5 levels is an okay choice. The rooms on the top floor have magnificent views from the private balconies. The lower level rooms less so. Nicely furnished but watch for the monkeys if you leave your balcony door open. I had them in... More

A great place to stay! We wandered in without a reservation and the owner was super friendly and gave us a good price on a lovely room with views overlooking Kandy. The room and attached bathroom were spotless. It also had a fast wifi signal and hot water! Kandy was very busy as we came on a Poya holiday. The... More

Spent 4 nights at Blinkbonnie, initially a work-related trip then my wife joined us. Very clean, great view from the balcony, the owners/manager husband and family team couldn't be nicer and speak English well. It's a fun half hour walk down to town, or a cheap tuk tuk ride. This is a guest house not a big hotel, so no... More

My girlfriend and I slept for 3 nights at the Blinkbonnie Panorama Guesthouse and we were completely satisfied with our stay. The owner is the most helpful person we have ever met and the panoramic view is also beautiful. The room was comfortable, adequately equipped and clean.
