We stayed at Kandyan Manor in March this year for 3 nights. During that time, Bhatiya and Suzy were excellent hosts, making us feel very welcome and at home. They were invaluable in giving us advice about places to visit, prices and helping to arrange transport for the remainder of our trip.
The location which is just outside of town is very peaceful, surrounded by forest from which you can hear a lot of birdlife. The verandah and garden were perfect for al fresco dining, and Suzy's Sri Lankan curries and Bhathiya's barbecues were delicious. The rooms were very clean and spacious.
Bhatiya arranged a diver for us called Anarudha, who for a very reasonable price drove us to our other destinations over 3 days. He was a very sensible and careful driver on the island's sometimes chaotic roads, and we highly recommend him.
In sum, if you visit Kandy, you're highly advised to stay here.More
