“A great homely place to stay around 15 mins from centre of Kandy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Stayed in February 2013 and only finally got round to submitting a review - sorry for the delay but had a great stay at Lucktissme and wanted to let people know.

Owner Harold was so helpful, organising a driver for me at very short notice to take me to Sigariya and Dambulla, and putting up with me calling at 11.30pm to speak to my tuk tuk driver who had got lost trying to find the place. Homely and warm service. Website: http://lucktissme-holidays.com/ and +94779949909 is Harold's number.

Hope you enjoy Kandy and Lucktissme! Tristan

This is a great place to stay in Kandy with a real home feel away from all of the hotels around the lake. It's only a 250-300 rupee ride and is nestled on the hill in a great neighborhood. Very stylish living space with nice seating outside. The rooms are the cleanest I've come across in Sri Lanka so that's always nice. Enjoy!

The family who run this B&B are warm, interesting people who made us feel so at home. With lovely big rooms, clean airy bathrooms we felt right at home. Delicious food too! We will definitely recommend this reasonably priced get away in the busy hills of Kandy.

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.
