We stayed at the Charlton Kandy Rest for two nights during the Perahera 2013.
Our room was small, but clean and totally fine for a backpackers standard. The inner courtyard is very enjoyable to relax after the busy streets of Kandy.
Most noteworthy is the boss (owner?), who was the most friendly staff person we met on our Sri Lanka trip. He is extremely helpful when planing any trips from Kandy or booking the next hotel and just in general a charming person. Also he takes whatever time is needed to help his customers.
Also he speaks good english (which is not necessarily the case at other hotels/guesthouses in Sri Lanka).
