“Informative and efficiently run”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Fantastic views, clean rooms with good mosquito nets. Our room had the same view as the communal balcony, which was a real plus. But it's the owners that really made this place stand out. Our questions and concerns were answered before we even asked! They made sure to give us guidelines of how much to pay for a tuk-tuk, how long it took to walk into the centre, and they even rang Sharon Inn to book a table for dinner for us. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Get Room 2 for the view!

This place was perfect for myself and my girlfriend. We enjoyed our stay there we went back again at the tail end of our trip

The breakfast was superb and eating the fruit platter whilst looking out at the amazing views made it even better. The family are very friendly. They even knocked on our doors to wake us at our requests.

The only reason I didn't select it at excellent was only because they turn the wifi off at 10. Not ideal especially when I wanted to check out the man it's score ...

For 2500 rupees you won't get better value for money. It's a nice 15-20 min walk into the city centre or 200-300 rupees for a tuk tuk. All in all though a perfect little stay in Kandy

Stayed here in October 2012. Helpful and knowledgeable owners. Clean rooms. Beautiful view. Good base from which to explore Kandy. Located up the hillside so quite a steep walk back. Mosquito nets are provided. Would recommend based on my experience.

Nice guesthouse for a reasonable price.
The shared balcony has a very nice view over the city and lake.
The rooms are clean and the owners are friendly
The only thing is: The mattresses are quite thin.
And . . Keep your Windows closed for the monkeys ;)

Great place overlooking Kandy, with magnificent views. A room with a view will set you back 4000 LKR whilst cheaper rooms are 2500 LKR. The owner was very friendly and nice and gave us a great feeling of welcome. The rooms are simple, clean and well maintained.

The center is only a short tuk tuk ride to the center for about 200 LKR. The only slight negative from our point of view was the 10.30pm curfew as we are night owls by all accounts and we had to hurry back to the hostel at 10.20 pm to avoid being locked out.

Overall great place and beautiful city.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view are very similar to standard rooms so you are paying an extra 1500 LKR for the ...

Reviewed 30 September 2013

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights and paid 3000Rs a night for a fan room with no view. It is more expensive than other places nearby but it is a cut above the rest. The place is spotless and cared for by a very friendly and welcoming owner. They have a veranda to admire the view and drink a pot of tea on. The owner booked us a tuk tuk into town for us to catch our 5am train to Galle and rearranged this for us when I became really ill. There is no food here, only breakfast but around the corner is a posh hotel serving good food at the same prices as the mediocre guesthouses below if you can't manage the walk or drive into town. We had no problem with noise and the walls went all the way up to the ceiling. We found this place quiet and peaceful and enjoyed our relaxing stay here.
