We stayed 5 nights in this hotel. It is a good location to settle down and then go to other tours from there. We visited Dambulla, Sigirya, Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, Spice Garden, Tea Factory, Sri Pada (Adam's Peak), Royal Botanical Gardens. The Kandy city center is easily reachable by tuk-tuk or 20 minutes on foot, where you can visit The...

Thank you Steven for your wonderful and warm help with arranging a taxi for us (even while we didn't stay here since it was fully booked). An hotel owner who really sits down with you, thinks with you and helps realize your plans. And one of the best curries we've had in Sri Lanka for dinner while we're planning. Thanks...

We stayed two nights and three days here, visiting the temple of the tooth, botanical gardens, and damnulla caves. The view from our room was stunning, the water very hot (and solar heated might I add!!!), and the in house restaurant was the best traditional Sri Lankan fare we have had the entire two weeks in Sri Lanka. Not to...

The room is quite small and basic, yet very clean and comfortable. It has a great view and it is easily reachable by tuk tuk from Kandy center. You can even walk, but the road is narrow and winding and uphill and the traffic is crazy. The restaurant is decent, especially for breakfast

A very nice clean hotel just a few minutes Tuk tuk from the city. They served really great food for breakfast and dinner. The staff were very kind and helpful. We stayed for 3 nights & would recommend.

We stayed for one night but I would've been happy to stay longer. We had a really nice big room which was clean and had a bathroom and big fan. The food was great, we had our first rice and curry here and also a Sri Lankan breakfast. The owner was very helpful and booked us a tour and taxi...

This was the third place we stopped by and checked the prices and the rooms. We were welcomed by the very nice owner, who could only offer us his last room with no warm water, but instead for a cheaper rate, which was totally fine with us as we didn't want to spend to much money for a room. Considering...
