The most friendly staff we meet so far in SL. Free and nice breakfast and wifi at our room. Great view! The rooms are sparse but clean. We arrived in peak of the tourist season and were lucky to find -what felt like - the last room in Kandy. The staff helped us plan our trip and let us use their computer and phone - thanks guys!

Since half a year the guest house has a new owner and this you can see! Lovely and helping atmosphere, clean(if you have something to criticice, they will clean it at once), two wooden terraces to chill out after an interesting day and the food is awesome here. We talked a lot to the owner and he has good and detailed plans for the next years. He has tough opinions about cleanliness, politeness from the staff and interior decoration. I felt really comfortable and safe at Mango Garden!

A positive welcome with a free pick up from the train station to hotel by a friendly hotel staff member. It was nice to see a young team working at the hotel, training for their careers in hospitality. All staff were helpful and genuinely interested in making sure that their customers were comfortable and happy - from my experience..... :-) The manager was also friendly and despite being busy, he made time to speak with hotel guests. The hotel tuk-tuk drivers were amazing and made my days out in Kandy an unforgettably fun experience. A very warm and caring atmosphere....... My only criticism is that the rooms could have less of a damp smell but when I complained about this, the manager changed my room which was much better. :-) Thank you for a lovely time and stay at Hotel Mango garden!

Room Tip: I think the bigger rooms are the best value for couples or friends sharing rooms.

We were at Mango Garden beginning of november and we enjoyed our stay there.
Plus :
- as we spent 3 nights, we could get a good deal for a nice double room with fan (1500LKR).
- location is good, 10 minutes walk from the city, 20 minutes walk from the railway or bus station, in a quiet place. There are some works in front of the hotel, but they stop working at about 5pm and don't start before 8.30am. It didn't bothered us.
- staff was nice. We didn't use anything but the room, so I can't tell for the other services.
- wifi connection was very fast.

Minus :
- the works in front of hotel if you expect to wake up lately.

Stayed here for two nights with friends and enjoyed my stay here. There were good points and bad points. The good thing was the staff they were very helpful in where we wanted to go and they were very hospitable. The bad points is one of the staff is very persistent in selling you a massage and just keeps trying. But overall the rooms were clean and there was hot water and a great view from the balcony!

Spent a couple of days in Mango Gardens and I have to say it was the best hotel we stayed in when in Sri Lanka with friendly and helpful people working there. Nice big and spotless rooms, tastefully decorated with good beds, perfect location just a couple of minutes from the lake and centre of the town. The signature feature of this hotel is the balcony with the surrounding mango trees and a nice view overlooking the lake. Early in the morning you can hear the buddhist monks chanting mantras in the Temple and share your breakfast with monkeys :-). At the moment there are no dining facilities but the owner of the hotel is working hard to open a small restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel. So those who will be visiting Kandy around December-January - you will definitely be able to have some food without leaving the hotel. Some people complain that it was a bit noisy during the day due to the construction works in the nearby site - but honestly - who stays in a hotel room during the day when in Kandy? There was no noise after 5 so quiet nite and morning are guaranteed. Enjoy your stay

The hotel owner is charming. We booked at Palm Garden, but we called because we need to know if this hotel was near Kandy, and when we talk with him, he offered Mango Garden for the same price, and we accepted. The two hotel are very near, but Mango Garden is new. I think it is one of the best hotel we slept during our trip in Sri Lanka. And I am considering the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, cleaning and maintenance of bedrooms, quality of breakfast, near of the city and price.
It is a really good place and I would recommend it to anyone, and I had breakfast in Palm Garden, and is a good place too.
