“Good value in a good location”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The Settle Inn is a smallish guest house right in the centre of Kandy near the lake and the Temple of the Golden Tooth so you can walk to all the sights. The rooms are small and clean with AC and there is even a hairdrier in the bathroom. Breakfast is served a a large table in the garden where one can chat to other guests and exchange travel tips if necessary.

Good rooms at a good price. Nice breakfast, cold ac. Wifi is available from 7am to 10pm. There is a restaurant just down the street called the Garden Cafe good food very quickly, very affordable. Tv in the rooms and the ability to lock up your belongings. Friendly staff.

Stayed 2 nights here in january. The room was tired but more importantly the bed had simply one sheet under which was a stained (blood) mattress protector. When we asked for another sheet to sleep under we received 2 items similar to table runners no more than 3' wide! I was cold all night. Location is ok at the quieter end of Kandy but near enough that a short walk gets you to restaurants, ATM's etc.

I stayed here for a night. Accommodation is clean and room is big. Location wise it's fairly near the town but getting there on foot will take a good 20-min stroll.

I find the mattress a tad too soft for me, and so are the pillows. The humidity sort of bugged me too as there's moisture on the walls. But then place makes up for it in terms of fast wifi, good advice by the owner and friendly staff. Shower and bathrooms are also clean.

If you're looking for 5* accomodation then thisn't isn't for you but if you want a pleasant decent sized room with good bathroom and friendly staff then give this a go. It is not in the heart of Kandy, which is good as it's a lot quieter here, but it only takes a couple of minutes in a tuk-tuk or a pleasant 10 minute stroll around the lake to get into the town. The breakfast was the normal Sri Lankan fare of eggs, fruit, toast and jam with tea or coffee and is served up outside in the small courtyard style garden where it is quite nice to sit in the morning and chat with other residents. There is free WiFi in all the rooms and advice given on what to visit. The rooms are well worth the money and I will stay again if we come back to Sri Lanka.
