“Great position and very helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Green View is high up in the Knuckles Mountains and while the building itself isn't amazing the views are. We spent 2 nights here having traveled by local buses from Kandy. Being November it was very quiet, in fact we were the only guests. The staff were really lovely and cooked us great evening meals both nights. The hotel is well placed for local walks and again the staff were able to point us in the right direction and draw small maps so we could explore the local paths. The rooms are basic but all have windows facing the sweep of jungle and hills in the distance. They were building a swimming pool which will be finished some time in 2014. Some reviewers appear to have been offered damp rooms but we had no problems and the staff were so helpful it is hard to imagine that if we had it wouldn't have been sorted out straight away.

Room Tip: Ask to look at room when you arrive. All share the same views.

We stayed here during our Sri Lanka tour. The tour was organized by Blue Haven which also runs the hotel.

The hotel is in the middle of nowhere. The views are beautiful and you can visit the nearby waterfalls. The room was musty and the mattress had seen better days. Rice&curry was only fair and breakfast rather poor.

The Mouldy - Green view
I'm sure that this place is great if you both tea total and not the only people staying. The evening meal was very good (seriously) even though the menu selection was limited, to
chicken curry and rice.
The views are absolutely stunning and there were plenty of monkeys and other wildlife to be seen. Still if like us you're on your honeymoon and want a room that smells of roses and not mould I'd ask “can it get worse?” However, if you want nature and solitude you'll survive.

This place is just a square type concreate brick that has just hostel type rooms. Not clean. And dull looking. If its rainy day room flows also wet due to some reason. I have being much better place than this for the price they charged me. Club Lespri (http://www.club-lespri-kandy-sri-lanka.lakpura.com/).It would just be better if no option available

This place is quite difficult to reach from Kandy. So if you want to explore Kandy, it is quite difficult from here. But if you want to be in in a beautiful mountain area not too far from Kandy - about 45min by car - this is a very good option.
The hotel is a concrete block, so it it is not a beautiful place itself. But the view and the surroundinga are very nice, the climate is pertfect (if you want to get out of the heat). If you see what you pay and what you get, it is excellent. The service is not too fast - but very friendly. The food is excellent - but you should order your dinner well in advance (including how many beer you want to have with your meal).
All together we found it a very relaxing place, perfect to visit Knuckles Range and Hunas Falls.

We have Peaceful and quiet hotel with great views and very friendly staff. We spent 4 days in this magnificent landscape and enjoy the tranquility of the evening after the trips to the area. Kandy is accessible by bus in an hour. The hotel is highly recommended.

We stayed only one night because we had no more time.. when we'd expected how beautiful the landscape is and what a great place this guesthouse is we'd spent much longer time there. All is so clean, the view (from every room is wonderfull) is great, the food is delicous and Prasanna and Atula are very friendly and helpfull! Thanks a lot and we'll come back for sure!
