“Great Staff!”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

We spent 3 days at this lovely guest house. Chamara and the rest of his staff could not do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. This included recommendations on things to see, getting us tickets to the cultural show and then actually showing up to ensure we had great seats, assisting us with our train tickets. Each night we felt like we were coming home to good friends! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend this guest house!

Mount Villa Hotel is a very nice and clean place for those who want to be close to Kandy's city center, but don't like to be in the chaos and dust of this big town. The hotel lies on the same hill as the Botanical Gardens, with a great view over Kandy and it surrounding hills. From the restaurant on the top level, where they serve good rice and curry (we had the chicken curry), you can even see the sunset. Breakfast is nice, the owner is an enthousiastic young men who runs his business for one year now.
You will be picked up for free when you book in advance, Kandy's railway station is about 10 minutes (depending on the traffic) from the hotel by tuk-tuk.

Room Tip: We had room 31, the one on the highest level. Great view, good double bed, airco and great shower. A...

stayed for two nights here. they have free accommodation and food for the driver. place was a bit difficult to find. I met my sri lankan friend in town and we had difficulty finding teh way back, even if you ask the locals, they do not know the area.

food is ok, I cannot eat spicy food so they did not put any chilly. for dinner, they will ask you what you want. breakfast is very simple with toasted bread, butter and jam and egg. not really filling.

rooms are big and comfortable. my room has a balcony but never used it, pillows are small though but i do not know if this is the norm in Sri Lanka.

bathroom a bit tired and not clean looking. there was, i think moulds on the shower floor so i had to clean it.

staff are great!

Room Tip: ask for a room with balcony

We spent one night here after a disastrous night at another guest house in the same area. Lovely bright, large comfortable room with a large bathroom (the bath was a bit tired, but Ok). The staff were very helpful, the roof top restaurant had great views across the valley and the food was delicious! It is a bit out of town, but the views and the quiet location more than compensated for us.

Kandy Mount Villa is located about a 5 minute tuk tuk ride outside of Kandy in a very pretty part of town. The hotel overlooks the valley and has very nice views of the surrounding area. The rooms are large and clean and the owner, Chamara, is very friendly and helpful. The food and service were both excellent and the dining area on the undercover veranda was perfect for a romantic meal. I particularly loved the walk from the villa into Kandy - down windy roads, along a beautiful river. And I can't remember the name of it now, but there is an excellent Ayurvedic spa along that road about 10 minutes walk from the villa. I would recommend Kandy Mount Villa if you want somewhere to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
