“A very nice family home”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Stayed here for one night and very much enjoyed the very nice welcome by our hosts. Loved the company of dog and cat (not only our daughter did!), the opportunity to watch batik making in the adjacent garage, the chance to meet other like-minded travelers, and the quiet location surrounded by chirping, humming, singing nature. Room and bathroom were small but functional, maybe a bit in the dark side unfortunately without a few. Breakfast was western, which was fine for us, but others might prefer the chance for a Sri Lankan breakfast. We also had dinner (at extra cost) which was Sri Lankan, great value for money and plentiful. Thanks for a brief but enjoyable stay.

Well myself and my partner loved this place. It was a great place to stay, family was super helpful and incredibly nice. They really go out their way to provide for you and ensure you have an enjoyable stay. Cindy the dog is also great fun, food was great and generally had a good nights rest at the end of busy and enjoyable days in around the city. It wouldn't have been the positive experience that it was without Hanthana :)

It is homestay at its best. The couple, their kid, the dog and cat all love guests and make you feel immediately at home. Fantastic food, great hospitality, really excellent value for money. They obviously enjoy having guests around and put their heart into it.

Room Tip: the room with the small balcony was lovely

Kandy was our 2nd stop on our Sri Lankan trip , and it was very nice to stay up in the hills out of the main town, so peaceful and quiet!
The owners and their son were the most hospitable people that we have ever encountered on a trip away, it is kind of like a home stay in the way that you are staying in their house and have the real family feel there! I had a bad cold there after coming up into the cool hills after the hot coast and the owners were so nice, the husband while he was in town got me some pills and his wife was very kind in making me some soothing hot drinks!
We also needed some washing doing and that was not a problem either, all washed and dried at the end of the day! It is a nice stroll down the hill into town and only a 2oo Rps back up the hill. The evening meals were fantastic and very healthy, we would recomend to stay there for the evening meals alone! We would fully recomend staying there!

Room Tip: The bed in the far back room is creaky and noisey, but hey for the price!

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights at HHR, we had a great time, the house is amazing and the family are great hostess. We had dinner for two nights and was great, breakfast is simple but very taste. Strongly recommend. This place will make total difference for your stay in Kandy.

On our tour of Sri Lanka we decided to stay at Hanthana Holiday Rooms after going through the reviews on Tripadvisor and were surprised to see such a positive response for the place. We decided to check it out and were not the least bit disappointed. The hosts are such wonderful people. They make you feel like you are their friends instead of customers. Food is good, the view from the balcony is nice and is situated 5Kms from the Goods Shed bus station on top of the hill. Overall, a very satisfying experience and will definitely go back to them if I visit SL in the future.

We stayed 2 nights at Hanthana holiday rooms and would recommend highly. Clean basic rooms, but with all that you could want or need. The location is a short tuk-tuk ride out of Kandy but pleasantly out of the hustle and bustle amongst the rising hills and on the edges of some tea plantations. The hosts are great and really friendly and gave good travel advice etc. and their dog Cindy is quite a character!

My only piece of constructive criticism was that the bed was very hard and our first nights sleep wasn't brilliant due to this, but once you're used to it it's really fine.

Worth noting the lovely breakfasts too. Very good. Highly recommended homestay - value wise it's unbeatable.
