Stayed here whilst travelling around Sri Lanka in October. Not a bad place to stay, clean rooms with a host who is very very proud. Unfortunately the name of the guest house Kandy does not reflect where it is located. It is at least 40mins from Kandy and particularly difficult to find. So much so George had to come and find us in our tuk tuk the first time we arrived. A tuk tuk will cost approx 500 ruppees, or you can catch a train into Kandy.
The rooms were clean and had modern bathrooms. The weather when we stayed was horrendous, we stayed in. However there is no space allocated to the bottom room to sit out. The other two rooms have balconies. This is more of a home-stay than a guest house, you spend alot of time with George the owner and host and his family.
George, my wife and I are undecided about. He down grades the help he has employed as servants and as a home stay he's trying to hard. He was also particularly pushy with us to make sure we wrote good reviews of his guest house and mentioned this repeatedly during our one night stay.
George also runs a tour company and spends much time encouraging you to use it. We booked a van to take us to Newrya Ella, we agreed a price based on 6 people travelling including pick ups etc. I rang the day before to confirm and the price had gone up another 1000 rupees and he had gone back on his agreement.
Despite this, the food we had for lunch was amazing!
Overall, a nice guesthouse for sunny days, that is miles from Kandy, with a host that is more of a business man.
