Located overlooking the lake just a few minutes walk from the town centre/temple complex. Very easy to get tuktuks from there if you prefer not to walk. Quiet and peaceful setting with lots of greenery around. The common area is very spacious with lounge sofas and reading/study table. There is also a lot of quality reading material available. The common area includes a dining table and a pantry area which is fitted with an electric kettle, microwave, sandwich toaster, full size fridge, ample crockery & cutlery and wash basin. The owner Wasantha and his family are very warm, friendly and helpful with lots of advice and even arranged a taxi for us at 530am in the morning as well as our train tickets from Kandy to Colombo. · The weather was unusually hot and humid yet we were able to enjoy our stay with fans (no aircons fitted) because the property is very airy and our room opened onto a balcony facing the lake and cool breezes.

Not easy to find behing an anonymous blue door but Nilko's house is a great place to rest for travellers. Clean and spacious room with a nice bathroom. Moskito nest. Shared kitchen and living room available for guests. We were very satisfied with our stay and appreciated it a lot more than a nearby fancy hotel.

This guesthouse is owned by a very welcoming family and a cute dog, that are very keen on talking with you and giving you hints for your further journey. The room was clean and everything we needed was there. Additionally there is a huge common room that can be used.

I enjoyed 3 nights at Lake Round Residence, where I was the only guest. My large room was wonderfully bright, with a comfortable bed and mosquito net. The attached bathroom was clean with good water pressure and it was very convenient to have a kitchen with kettle, toaster and fridge. The shared living area was huge, and I think this would be the perfect place for a group of friends or a large family stay. I enjoyed the walk around the lake into town, and it was easy to get a ride back in the evening. Highly recommended.

Great location in Kandy, easy walking distance from all major sites and festivities. The hosts are lovely and the service great. There is a large communal room with a kitchen, lounge area, books and a great view. The staff are lovely and have an interesting family history. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Kandy.
