Located in the hills of Kandy, only 10mnts away from the town center, this guesthouse is a perfect place to both experience the town as the surrounding nature. It is on short walking distance from the national park, and the monkeys greet you in the afternoon whilst strolling in the hills. The guesthouse owner, Ms Indra, is a lovely lady who does everything to make her guests feel at home. The rooms are basic but clean, and the homy livingroom, porch to chill on and lovely garden make you feel at home quite easily. Indra's cooking is one of the best I have tasted in Sri Lanka, and she is always available for a little chat.

This guesthouse is in an awesome area in the forest and only 5 minutes by tuc tuc away from the city centre. The rooms have everything you need. The owners are very friendly and honest. Everything was fine exept some dogs which made some noise at night. When we come back to Kandy we will stay there again.

My wife and I lucked onto Forest Glen through Hostel World after making a rapid decision to visit Sri Lanka and Kandy after being granted a holiday by the Sultan of Oman. We found the hostess, Indra, very accommodating - she provided a car & driver for us from the airport, made sure we were settled into the Lodge and went out of her way to make sure that Christmas was celebrated in style by all of the guests.
The room was basic, but Forest Glen does not pretend to be a hotel or high class lodge. Indra's cooking is good with chances to sample home-cooked Sri Lankan food in a comfortable family situation.

We reserved Forest Glen after reading great reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived from the airport and received a nice room in a cozy house in a valley a 10-15 minutes walk from Kandy city. A nice, relaxing escape, yes?
Snafus not withstanding, some of which were our fault (airport transport price), it began to feel as though our stay was an inconvenience to our hostess! Adding in the obligatory 3x charges for water/drinks and the disinterested/nonexistent service (our room was not cleaned - had to give trash to cleaning ladies), we left very disappointed.
Seemed to me that Forest Glen was open to make money, not because travelers/hospitality was of interest. Our stay was not relaxing at all.

Please ignore the last review by somebody that did not even stay here. I think they should have tried out the place before giving a review. The frustrations of her driver had something to do with it I feel.
At Forest Glen you are staying in a family home in a beautiful setting. You are surrounded by forest with lovely bird song and yet you are only a 10minute walk from Kandy. The rooms are basic but clean and have their own charm. There is a lovely communal lounge and a delightful verandah to sit on.The host Indra is incredibly welcoming and friendly and also an excellent cook. If you want to stay in a hotel do not choose this place. However if you want to stay in a beautiful Sri Lankan home you will not be disappointed.
