“original family experience in Kandy - very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2011

We were lucky enough to find one of the most beautiful and original guesthouses since we travel the world. It is not yet recommended in Lonely Planet because is newly opened, but in their next book I hope it will be. This place is simply amazing, as you enter into the family atmosphere and the guests are taking care of all your needs.
It is owned by very welcoming and very friendly family and they do magic in the kitchen.
The rooms are very clean, the bathrooms the same. You have an open terrace in front of the rooms and a spacious and traditional living room.
I totally recommend this guest house- it was a real surprise for us after checking other rooms in town.

I stayed at Mr & Mrs Madugalle's home in August 2011. It was the most interesting, homely and memorable place we stayed in during my 4 week tour around the beautiful country.

Kumari Madugalle and her husband looked after me fantastically well. I stayed for 3 nights. Mr and Mrs Madugalle picked us up from the bus station, made us lunch upon arrival at their beautiful house in a convenient location in the city.

The room was a good size, mosquito proof, and clean.

Each night they cooked the most amazing traditional Sri Lankan food for me. I could have what we wanted and they even got in beer for me to relax with. During and after dinner, I talked with the Madugalle's. This allowed me a perfect insight into Sri Lankan life and is an experience I remember fondly and will not forget.

If you're looking for a real Sri Lankan experience with homely hospitality, I would certainly recommend a stay with Mr and Mrs Madugalle.
