“Beautiful views, wonderful hospitality”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed 2 nights with Liz and her son Luke and were so glad that we had chosen to stay here rather than in Kandy itself. Liz is a wonderful host, we felt very well looked after and yet had plenty of space to ourselves. The house is lovely, all the rooms are great and the views are amazing! It was a gorgeous peaceful place to stay. The kids loved the pool, and especially loved Luke splashing around with them! The food was fantastic - we loved eating out on the terrace by the pool and watching the fireflies. The drive up to the house was a bit of an experience, particularly in the rain, but we were glad to have made the effort! I would not hesitate to recommend Summit view to my friends and would stay there again if we are ever back in Kandy

“Great views with awesome hospitality”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The house has a beautiful location. It is lovely to wake up to great views of the valley from your room.
What is even better is the hospitality and company of Liz and her son Luke. (Liz's daughter is a little shy, so we didn't get to speak with her much, but she made dessert for us once, which was delicious!). They know when to come and speak with you and when to give you the required space. The home-cooked food that you get here is lovely.
I will return to Kandy, if only to stay at Summit view again.

“Summit View Kandy District Sri Lanka”
Reviewed 20 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The view matches the hospitality, both were superb.
After being on the road for a while we just wanted somewhere serene to unwind and this lovely property fitted the bill to a T.
Liz and her family went the extra mile for us and gave us great advice on what to see locally and what we should pay when we got there.She even arranged some onward travel for us.
My wife is particular about her food and she just loved the food especially the Kiribath and the Lunu Miris.
The room was spotless and very comfortable, we enjoyed dining by the pool at night time.
We were glad that we chose to stay here rather than nearby Kandy.
We will be back next time with the family.

Management Response
13 Mar 2014
We always try to meet our guests expectations and I believe this is why we receive everwhelming positive responses from our myriad of contented guests. Although we have been only operating for a relatively short time we have had many return bookings already and have had a large number of referrals from our loyal guests. However, I would like to respond to the points you have raised in your review,
I have had to rely on "Google translate" so please bear with me.
In your review you gave us one out of five for directions to the property.
Your driver inspected the property last November, prior to your booking so he was aware of where we were.
He didn't raise any issues about location or access when he arrived in a tuk tuk last year.
When we spoke with your driver we offered to transport you in our jeep but the offer was declined because a local three wheeler had been hired for the purpose by him. fair enough.
Your comment about "left overs" at meal times aren't accurate as we prepare all our meals fresh each and every day.
In fact guests are welcome to watch the cook prepare the meals and many do just that and enjoy the experience very much.
We operate as a Bed & Breakfast so that is what we offer in our advertised tariff. Naturally, dinners come at an extra cost.
Your driver was given a choice in terms of his accommodation.
He could either stay in the staff quarters and share or reside in the bungalow next door.
He knew of the nominal charge that he had to pay to the watchman, when we gave him his accommodation options. He had the Bungalow to himself.
We gave him his food free of charge and he said "it was tops"
He was in fact, full of praise for the meals; it's a comment that is echoed in many reviews on both Trip Advisor and other agencies that we use.
Liz for Summit View.
