I spent three nights at this property in late February, and highly recommend it to TripAdvisor readers. The quality of construction is excellent, the views wonderful, the garden delightful, the wifi and hot water work, and the owner is friendly, knowledgeable and aims to please. The location 20 minutes from Kandy is a blessing, as it affords guests a respite from the pollution and congestion of the city center.

My only complaints are that the kitchen is very slow, the music in the restaurant too loud, and the televisions in the guest rooms are ancient. I hope that the owner will soon install flat-panel TVs in each room.

Stayed: February 2013, traveled solo

We were pleasantly welcomed to this homely hotel after a long and nerve-wracking drive. Our room was just the right size and spotlessly clean. The balconies presented breath-taking views of sunset and sunrise.
The staff were very helpful and did their best to make us feel at home. The local food was good and was served with style. Will definitely stay next time - an unforgettable experience.

Stunning scenery, beautiful garden, ( it's got a proper lawn and boarders with flowers and shrubs)
Every thing just works! And has been thought out eg. Light switches in the right place, bedside tables etc it all flows. It's the attention to detail, unusually found in Sri Lanka
Sit out on the veranda in the peace and quiet, with the wildlife and a view of the mountains and adams peak in the distance.
Very good quality local food from an experienced chef,
I'm one happy chappie I can tell you

Lovely garden and the hotel itself has become a highlight of our trip in Kandy, aside from The Temple of Tooth. The hotel will arrange tuk tuk for city tour at a reasonable price (you still pay the tuk tuk driver and bargain with him directly). The manager and staff were extremely patient and helpful.

We had the mountain view room, spacious and with a huge balcony with amazing view. On the other side of the corridor, you will have the best garden view.

The hotel is on the top of a hill, which took a 30 minutes ride on tuk tuk from the city, but it is worth the ride.

Highly recommend its Sri Lankan breakfast. Fried noodles are also good,

Room Tip: The mountain view room we had was larger than the garden view room.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in March 2012 when on a 9 week trip around Asia and India. Apologies for the late review. We stayed in many different hotels and guesthouses but this one was very special. The location was absolutely stunning with wonderful views from the balcony where you eat.Our bedroom was spotless as was the rest of the hotel, the staff were every attentive and the food although limited in choice, very good. A lovely place to relax and unwind and we wished we had more time to stay longer.
