Mr & Mrs Madugalle's B&B

My girlfriend and I stayed at Mr & Mrs Madugalle's home back in December 2007. It was the most interesting, homely and memorable place we stayed in during our 3 week tour around the beautiful country.

Kumari Madugalle and her husband looked after us fantastically well. We stayed for 3 nights. Mr and Mrs Madugalle picked us up from the train station in their car, made us lunch upon arrival at their beautiful house high above the city. The room they let is in fact 2 large rooms including bathroom, lounge area with bedroom and a small terrace, with the most amazing views of the beautiful green hills down to the city.

Each night they cooked the most amazing traditional Sri Lankan food for us. We could have what we wanted and they even got in beer for us to relax with. During and after dinner, we talked with the Madugalle's. This allowed us a perfect insight into Sri Lankan life and is an experience we remember fondly and will not forget.

If you're looking for a real Sri Lankan experience with homely hospitality, I would certainly recommend a stay with Mr and Mrs Madugalle. You can contact them at madugallere@yahoo.com.

My wife and I have recently returned from a 3-weeks wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka. One of the highlights was staying a few days with Kumari and Rihad Madugalle in Kandy. We agree, James. This charming and welccoming couple look after you so well - from lovely Sri Lankan home cooking to excursions to suit your special interests, and stimulating and interesting conversation. At the end of our stay we felt we had made real friends.

We would certainly recommend a stay with the Madugalles in Kandy.

I agree with both of the above posts. I also stayed with the Madugalles during December (and, in fact, met James at the test match!), and had the most fantastic experience of my month in Sri Lanka.

If you're looking for something slightly different to the typical tourist experience, and a genuine insight into Sri Lankan life, then the Madugalles' B&B is definitely for you.
