We spent 3 nights here (2 adults & 2 kids). We stayed in the 2 rooms upstairs. Given the glowing reviews we were a little disappointed.
Nice relaxing balcony to sit on if you are in either upstairs room
Quiet location away from the chaos of Kandy (if you ignore the trains)
Cleanliness........ When we arrived late in the afternoon there were dirty cups & a full ashtray left on our balcony. Room felt a little damp most of the time. Bathroom was pretty poor.
Value for money......we felt it was overpriced for what was essentially staying in someone's home. Our room was straight off the living room & you could hear everything from the family.
Overall it was an adequate stay, food was superb but it wasn't overly comfortable or great value for money. We've travelled extensively & have stayed in many better guesthouses which have offered much greater value for money & hospitality.
Obviously others have had a much better experience but my advice if you stay here is to go with an open mind & realise it is really just a homestay.
