Reviewed February 4, 2014

We found this hotel at Saranankara Road. A bit of a climb up the slope with a heavy backpack. There is a construction right opposite, it was noisy. We chose a room at the back outside of the main building. It was cheapest but we escape the noise. The room was isolated but comfortable. The 2 staff Mayuran and Pavi were very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good but expensive.

Room Tip: Choose room at the back to escape the noisy construction but wifi is not reachable.

We stayed in Mango Garden hotel in Kandy for two nights. The location is good, at walking distance from the main attractions. Friendly staff, nice food and a bed with 'real' matrasses, the hotel is a good option to stay in Kandy.

Afterwards we hired a driver through the hotel, this proved to be a very good choice. Wajira drove us around for 6 days, in a very relaxed (un-Sri Lankan) style, which was nice after some survival of the fittest experiences in busses and tuktuks. He was very good company, not only when explaining about Sri Lanka, but also one evening when he joined us for dinner.

The most friendly staff we meet so far in SL. Free and nice breakfast and wifi at our room. Great view! The rooms are sparse but clean. We arrived in peak of the tourist season and were lucky to find -what felt like - the last room in Kandy. The staff helped us plan our trip and let us use their computer and phone - thanks guys!

Since half a year the guest house has a new owner and this you can see! Lovely and helping atmosphere, clean(if you have something to criticice, they will clean it at once), two wooden terraces to chill out after an interesting day and the food is awesome here. We talked a lot to the owner and he has good and detailed plans for the next years. He has tough opinions about cleanliness, politeness from the staff and interior decoration. I felt really comfortable and safe at Mango Garden!

A positive welcome with a free pick up from the train station to hotel by a friendly hotel staff member. It was nice to see a young team working at the hotel, training for their careers in hospitality. All staff were helpful and genuinely interested in making sure that their customers were comfortable and happy - from my experience..... :-) The manager was also friendly and despite being busy, he made time to speak with hotel guests. The hotel tuk-tuk drivers were amazing and made my days out in Kandy an unforgettably fun experience. A very warm and caring atmosphere....... My only criticism is that the rooms could have less of a damp smell but when I complained about this, the manager changed my room which was much better. :-) Thank you for a lovely time and stay at Hotel Mango garden!

Room Tip: I think the bigger rooms are the best value for couples or friends sharing rooms.

We were at Mango Garden beginning of november and we enjoyed our stay there.
Plus :
- as we spent 3 nights, we could get a good deal for a nice double room with fan (1500LKR).
- location is good, 10 minutes walk from the city, 20 minutes walk from the railway or bus station, in a quiet place. There are some works in front of the hotel, but they stop working at about 5pm and don't start before 8.30am. It didn't bothered us.
- staff was nice. We didn't use anything but the room, so I can't tell for the other services.
- wifi connection was very fast.

Minus :
- the works in front of hotel if you expect to wake up lately.

Stayed here for two nights with friends and enjoyed my stay here. There were good points and bad points. The good thing was the staff they were very helpful in where we wanted to go and they were very hospitable. The bad points is one of the staff is very persistent in selling you a massage and just keeps trying. But overall the rooms were clean and there was hot water and a great view from the balcony!
