“Expensive for average quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

Cons:
- was not cheap compared to other sri lankan hotels.
- the room we had didn't have enough ventilation. (they are others rooms with best view and ventilation, mine was the worst one).
- we had problems with toilets a couple of times.
- The menu should specify what menu do they have available. We wanted to order curry at dinner and they didn't have it(they never offer it at dinner). We wanted to order sri lankan brekfast and they didn´t ask and just served us western breakfast.
- They could have more information about turistic places, maps of the zone etc.

Pros:
- the rooms was clean when we arrived. but they never did maintenance.
- The guesthouse offers a pool service, we asked for it and they brought us with their tuktuk to the pool 300 mts from the room. (nice pool btw).
- The staff is always available to help you in anything you need. Nice welcoming people.
- The food was really good. (not cheap compared with sri lankan prices).

---
- Location was average on a hill like 15min walk from the lake.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thanks for the review of the hotel. We appreciate your feed back. This way can improve our shortcomings. Our average hotel room prices comparatively cheaper for double ($ 30) Triple ($ 36) as we have advertised in other booking engines. We have put up notices in each room, if guests need rooms to be cleaned each day during their stay. Our policy is not to go into rooms while they are away and without their consent. We are not a big hotel people. In order to prepare a Sri Lankan meal, the guests have to tell us in advance if they need Sri Lankan food as it takes time to prepare. If their is any shortcomings that we have in our facility, we would have rectified it immediately if we were notified. warm regards, Anura Dante

Friendly staff, helpful with advice about things to see around Kandy. Nice location with beautiful views, free tuk tuk pick up from the station if requested, otherwise no more than 250 rupees. Triple room on top floor was nice and big with small outside private seating area. Small bathroom with the chance of a couple of bugs but overall a good place to stay. There was some building work going on while we were there so make sure they're not working outside your room early in the morning!

For a brief and value for money visit to Kandy then this is your place. Situated next door to Helgas Folly ( worth a visit) and over looking the city it's on a great location. Aruna the manager and his staff are very obliging. There is a small pool which residents can use and is good to wash off the carbon monoxide from the city. The rooms all had air con and fans and Tv's. (useful if you speak Sinhalese) and even a radio alarm clock. I would recommend it to anyone.

Certainly a home away from home. Wonderful service and I enjoyed my folksy chat with the owner!!
Only problem was the eating area is located immediately in front of my room. I was sleeping at 10.00 pm when a family of 4, with 2 small children, arrived and were served food. It got to be very noisy so I got up, dressed and went for a walk.

Fantastic place, strongly recommend it. The workers here are superb, cannot be more helpful. The owner seems like a legend aswell. Place is spotless, good value and if you stay here, make sure you drink some Arrack with the workers on the veranda...a great experience.
