“Pleasent Home away Home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

I have to mention here Victoria lodge is real Home away home.
We 8 frends family were on tour to srilanka and we stayed in victoria lodge. Actually we hired the whole Bungalow, even though it named as lodge i would stay its real pleasent home with an excellent out house and very good green play area well suited for kids to play and elders to relax.
Wonderfull Location
Excellent Service by care taker.
Value for Money you pay.
Great tasty Srilankan traditional breakfast
Excellent Hospitality and loyality
I/we all enjoyed the stay and would recommend who wanted to have relaxed calm peaceful stay with the family should sure go to victoria loadge.
Ruwan the real care taker of the Bungalow and the Guest.

we were a group of friends with our families from Kuwait on a trip to Srilanka for a week. Our stay at Victoria Lodge Bunglow was memorable. we came as guests and left as friends!

Due to our tight schedule we reached Kandy at midnight. But Ruwan the owner of the bunglow was very kind and helpful to make all the necessary arrangements for us. Ruwan and his family were extremly helpful and kind. They made all necessary arrangements for us.

The rooms were spacious and clean. Location is green and is safe, also has a small play area for the children. seperate rooms were provided for the drivers.

only draw back at that time was that the road to the Bunglow was under repair and the access was difficult for our huge bus. however, Ruwan took all efforts to arrange autos for all of us.

One of our friends had misplaced the passports of the family. all of us were worried and tensed. Ruwan took efforts to contact the auto drivers who dropped us that night and found the passports and returned it. unforgetable incident!

we all enjoyed our stay. Personally, it was the most memorable and pleasent stay for me. i recommend visiting Victoria Lodge at Kandy.

Dear Sir,
Thank you very much for your review.
Your group was very nice and kind with us. we hope you returned home safely keeping the memories of Sri Lanka with you. Authorities are developing more facilities understanding the travellers' needs. so we hope you visit Sri Lanka again and visit the unseen area of Sri Lanka. we are very much happy to serve you at all the time. and hopefully we can offer you more rooms and more facilities next time.

Best regards
ruwan

We arrived, decided it was not for us & left. Victoria Lodge Resort is not a resort. It's a guesthouse in the middle of the Kandyan countryside at the end of a very bad road which makes trips into Kandy difficult. If you like staying in someone's house & spending your leisure time in a family living room watching TV with your host, this is the place for you. If, like me you expect a nature resort to be nicely appointed chalets built on a wide area of natural beauty, this is not the place. True, the gardens are large and great for country rambles , but this is not enough. At $66 per night VLR is very expensive for what it is. After we left, we stayed in a "real" nature resort, where we got real value for money.

  • Liked — The sorrounding countryside.
  • Disliked — Poor value for money, very isolated & poor amenities.

I feel sad about this thing happened to you . Some agents have over marketed us branding our bungalow as a resort. so I really apologise from you.
Of course I agree we are not a resort type hotel. We are just a Holiday home for the people who like to visit on family vacation. we are located 11km's away from kandy in nice greenery area bordering the reservoir. this is ideal for family holidays,company outings or get together.
we do not offer as room basis we offer only entire bungalow basis which hassle free and ideal for family holiday makers.
If you visit here next time ,you will see the facilities what we have and how far we have improved .
Best regards
ruwan
