We stayed in Kandy in May 2014. All in all, it was not a pleasant experience. The white tiled floors were very gritty and stained. (I don't mind a "No Shoes" policy in the least, but in this instance, it was far from ideal). The light fittings in the bedrooms had exposed wiring and the kitchenette was completely non-functional. Our blanket had these strange grey/black stains. On the first night we had a big spider in our bathroom and on the second a huge cockroach. Insects are part and parcel when travelling in warmer countries, but coupled with the dirty/grimy floors and veneer of dust coating appliances such as the kettle, we couldn't shake of the feeling of unease. This place has potential and translates very well in photos. But there needs to be alot more care and attention given to the basics like cleanliness. In many ways perhaps a well-run backpackers would have had a higher standard of cleanliness. This is not what we were expecting given the reviews on Trip Advisor. The rest of the places we booked and stayed at around Sri Lanka were fanstastic. If the owner would take the feedback on board and attend to these issues, Kandy Reach Inn has great potential given its location.
