“lovely and relaxing stay”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 via mobile

i really enjoyed the grand home atmosphere and architecture, quiet neighborhood and very gracious hosts here...and would definitely return again. it made for a wonderful and relaxing stay, plus was a good value in a popular but noisy and sorta smoggy city!

The best of places we have stayed at in Sri Lanka. We have travelled the island for a month and have seen many places, but without a doubt this was the most pleasant of them all. The atmosphere and history of the house, the warm welcome of the family and their staff, the spacious rooms, the lovely and well prepared food: it was all just perfect. We can highly recommend it to anybody who's looking for a beautiful and quiet spot just a 200 rupees ride away by tuktuk from the city centre of Kandy.

I had heard about Lucktissme from friends in australia and I was very pleased I stayed here with my family. The hosts were very friendly and made us feel extremely welcome and treated us like we were part of their family. The old Sri Lankan house and surrounding gardens were beautiful and it seemed like we were in the jungle, not in the middle of busy Kandy. We liked it that much we decided to stayed longer than we had planned.

In December 2011 I stayed at Harold Ratwatte's guesthouse on the outskirts of Kandy. Harold is a former tea planter and has a wealth of stories to tell. This guesthouse is in a pleasant location and built in the Kandyan Sinhalese tradition. on ancestral property. It is located a quiet area with access to main roads to Kandy, Mahiyangana and Colombo. I enjoyed the traditional Sinhalese food, presented in clean, impressive fashion and it was tasty. The room was well ventilated and clean.

I cannot rate this guest house highly enough! The food was amazing, the room was comfortable and the hostess friendly and helpful. I would recommend anyone who is planning a trip to this region of Sri Lanka to make this your base from which to explore Kandy or the outlying hill country. They made a good holiday a GREAT one.
