“Home Stay”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Now i understand what home stay means and if Oak Wood is any indication then i love the idea. Yes it is called a hotel but it is more like visiting friends. The room was clean and tidy, the amenities are basic but the owner's family hospitality is what makes this a unique experience. If you do take the time to embrace the home stay concept then you will learn more about the people of Sri Lanka in one night than you would in a month of "hotel" accomodation. Food was simple but well cooked and in a variety of cuisine styles. Having met 3 generations we definitely feel part of the family and we hope to offer the same hospitality if any of the family visit Australia.

Room Tip: If you can try to get the green room with the balcony overlooking the stream.

Oak wood inn was in a nice quiet area just outside of Kandy. Lovely peaceful accommodation with great Hospitality! Extremely helpful staff and really nice freshly cooked food. Nice trickling waterfall just behind the hotel.About 5 minute drive from the lake which was fine as we had a driver!

Stayed at hotel with my friends during my visit to Sri Lanka. Its a very simple hotel in a very quiet location. We had a small stream flowing behind the hotel and waking up listening to the sound of flowing water is a beautiful experience. The owner is an Indian and on our request prepared Indian Breakfast for us -- poori sabji, Idli - sambhar. The taste of both the dishes was really good. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a nice stay with awesome hospitality.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back side where you can hear water flowing.

I cannot recommend Oak Wood Inn highly enough! Our hosts Mohan and Lakshmi made our stay in Kandy very easy and enjoyable. Mohan made sure we were able to get train tickets for our onward journey, arranged transport to Sigiriya at short notice. The family shared their New Years celebrations with us, fed us cake and the traditional New Years breakfast. The impression I am left with is of a lovely family who go out of their way to help their guests enjoy Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: Pink room is quiet and overlooks a waterfall
