We booked this place for our recent visit to Sri Lanka based on the very high rating and the affordable rates. Initially it took us time locating this place because its hidden among the wilderness of Kandy (its right opposite the SeaPlane docking). Situated right next to a river, this place offers serenity away from the rush and traffic of the city.
The place was among the highlights of our holiday because for the couple running this place. They were an amazing host caring for all our needs as well keeping us entertained. Whether serving a tasty dinner with local dishes or preparing b'fast for us at 4am in the morning before we left, they were really very helpful.
The only concern is that the place is situated a bit far from the city so its advisable to have a vehicle for commuting. Otherwise this would definitely be among the best place to stay in Kandy.
