“Excellent guest house !”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This place surprised me complitely. I stayed for several weeks. Rooms are clean and modern. The bed and pillows were the best I've ever slept in when I travel. The family is so lovely, that I don't know how to thank them enough. Food is heavenly good, mm yam. U will get your loundry washed (best of all, you might get them back in the same day!), doesn't cost much. I highly recommend Sevana Guest House! :) It all just works here. :) If I ever come back to Kandy... I know where to go for the night!

My room was modern, nice, clean. The owner was very intelligent and helpful. Without her help I couldn't have visited Adam´s Peak. I had no reason to search any other place to eat - her dishes were very delicious. Sevana is quite close to the railway and bus stations and the Tooth Temple + lake. For me this place was just excellent place to stay - the caring and friendly stuff, great cuisine, very nice room, good location.

Hotel price in Sri Lanka has gone up a lot. This place was very good, but they only had the most expensive room available when we arrived, and we felt like it was a bit expensive compared to other places we stayed in Sri Lanka.

However, the room had a balcony with nice view, AC and the most wonderful bed and pillows. We enjoyed our stay there very much, and the family was very professional and took good care of us. We would probably want to stay there again when we come back.

Stayed 2 nights in Kandy at Sevana. Our room was very clean, with strong AC, and it had a balcony with a great view of the rooftops of the city! A very nice lady named Sakunthala and her family runs the guesthouse and she is very organized and professional. She helped us get to where we wanted to go within the city, answered all our questions about where to change money, where to see this, etc. and also booked us a car & driver very quickly. Her staff is excellent as well, breakfasts are yummy and happy (as you can see from all the smiley faced eggs everyone is posting here). Loved our stay here, highly recommended!

The service was very good and the family who runs this guesthouse is very friendly and helpful. They sold us tickets to the Kandyan dance performance so we didn't have to wait in line to buy them. Our double room was very clean and we enjoyed some very good home cooked food. The fruit cup for dessert was excellent. We were served some delicious bananas grown on the family's offsite property. Sevana is a 4-stores building close to the city center (maybe 10 min walk). Cool old photos of Kandy on the walls. The Internet is a little weak. We would definitely stay again!

We spent 3 nights here & find some of the recent reviews nothing short of puzzling to say the least. After having been in Sri Lanka for 5 weeks we have stayed in more than a few guesthouses & we found Sevana absolutely spotless both in the public areas & in our room & bathroom. We were in Room 11 which had Air cond & a balcony which we requested. The air cond was very efficient & yes there was some street noise as we expected but nothing that keep us awake & we are not the soundest of sleepers being well in our 60's. The view was of the busy street ourside (great for people watching & street photography) & surrounding rooftops as we expected when we chose an inner city location. If we had wanted to look out into garden & hillside we would have chosen a location further out of Kandy. I am not sure what the story is re the building site noise as we were there mid week & we had no commercial noise of the sort described, at all. We loved being able to walk to the lake, Tooth Temple, CBD, railway station etc all within 5-15mins & there were a number of great snack places within a block. We had breakfast in on several mornings & it was very good. The other thing I will say about Sevana is that the family who run it are fantastic at answering all emails promptly...which matches the service we received at all times during our stay.

Room Tip: We had no 11 which was on 2nd floor with balcony overlooking the main street. We were happy with thi...

Stayed here for 2 nights, very clean rooms, nice location within walking distance to the temple of the tooth and the lake. Very nice family, always smiling and able to give very useful information. I would definitely stay here again in the future.
