A little out of the central area of Kandy and needing transport to get to the main sights of the city, this delightful small hotel (a good sized private house, in reality) was a pleasure to stay in. We were very fortunate in that we had their "Ebony and Ivory" room which I suspect is the best in the house. It boasts a large very comfortable double bed in a big bed room , with a large en-suite shower room. The interior of the hotel is carefully furnished with good furniture and the ground floor features a splendid illuminated fish pond with an impressive reproduction of an early Buddha statue as a main feature.
Maitre D' by the name of Charlie ensures that all of your meal requirements are well catered for. In my case, his curries were most tasty and delicate - a tribute to Sri Lankan cuisine.
Be aware that the hotel does not have an alcohol licence, so you will need to "bring your own" which Charlie will happily put into the kitchen's fridges.
A most enjoyable stay.
