“A traditional and immaculate homestay”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

This really is, and feels like a home. Innocent who owns the house is a very interesting and extremely kind woman and her staff too are particularly kind and welcoming. The room was immaculate, the breakfast very good and the monkeys that played mischievously in the garden were great to watch while we sipped our tea. I've missed being offered a nice pot of hot tea in the beach places we've stayed in the Sri Lanka... They spoil you at Lucktissme. It's really really worth staying here. So much character and warmth.Recommend to all types of traveller and children especially.

Being here was excellent! we stayed at lucktissme at the perahera. The owner is very friendly and willing to help you getting in and around Kandy!
Actually it is not far from the center of kandy 10- 15 minutes by shortcut walking distance
Rooms are clean, breakfast is great. It was a pity we did not have dinner, it seems to be delicious.
We , a family of five, can recommend this homestay!

we stayed here 2 nights with our 2 and 7 year olds and were so welcomed and well received that it made our stay in kandy. our 7 year old now has the cricket bug having played with the owners grandson who was also so charming and welcoming - delicious food was served at the very last minute without any fuss - such great value for money and really well located - they also organised a helpful driver and tuk tuk driver when needed - do stay there, you wont be disappointed and sounds like their new place at the coast is also worth a visit

A calm guest-house just a short tuk-tuk ride from the town centre. Clean, neat rooms.
The family who owns and runs the place is super helpful, super friendly and really easygoing, they can also tell you a lot about the city, country and themselves.
Good food - home dinner style (including mangos straight from the owners garden), really lets you see the real Sri Lankan lifestyle.
Nice rooms, clean bathrooms, beautiful garden with a great sitting place.
Perfect location if you want to visit Kandy, Nuwara Eliya or Pinnawale.

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.
