Hantana Range View
Ranked #2 of 470 Kandy B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 June 2014

After spending three and a half weeks in Sri Lanka, I can say with certainty that my family's stay in Kandy with Frances and Patrick was a standout experience. They warmly welcomed us into their beautiful home, and shared their extensive knowledge of Sri Lanka with us. Their hospitality and warm, inviting demeanour made us feel like we had known them all our lives. Additionally, as an art and design enthusiast, their collection of art, antiques and beautifully crafted furniture was like my own personal heaven! And if their lovely home was not enough, the view of the Hantana Range was the cherry on the cake, and made for a lovely morning tea on the balcony. I highly recommend this stunning abode to anyone seeking a relaxing, beautiful retreat!

Our first visit to Sri lanka was made worthwhile by Frances and Pattrick. Hantana Range view home stay was one of the main things in our trip which will always be cherished and remembered in our hearts. Supercute couple, awesome collection of antiques to re vitalize your senses, breath taking view of the whole Hantana mountain range, very caring hosts and helpers.. everything was beautiful about them. The warm hospitality and love made us feel at home only :) Will definitely be going back to stay with them. The stay was good because of them!! They made it amazing for us. I am a vegetarian, so they tool special efforts to make all good dishes, beautifully presented for me. Admirable! All evenings spent with them are memoirs to us <3 Wish to see them again soon! I would recommend this to all for sure!! Helped us in locating markets, shops and routes. Since it was our anniversary, they brought cake specially for us to celebrate. :) Wow!! it was fun to be with them.

Room Tip: All rooms available are equally beautiful !!

My wife and I are senior citizens and hesitate to venture outside of the four/five star established hotels, BUT we took a gamble to stay with Patrick & Frances, as their hospitality was well recommended by another couple, who had stayed with them. From the time our taxi stopped outside their home on the side of a hill, over looking a scenic part of Kandy, to the time we bade a warm farewell to this lovely couple, it was as if we had known them for ever,-------- I am not kidding. A colonial style well appointed home on two floors, cuisine of western or oriental flavours in a quite, but handy neighbourhood. Our hosts having lived in or around Kandy all their lives, were able to direct and suggest places to visit and where to shop during our short three day stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to re-visit if at all possible from Canada in the coming years.

although just one night in Kandy, i would highly reccommend to stay here. The couple was very nice and friendly. Everything is like home, clean and cosy, especially the view on the next morning from their balcony. The food was yummy, i like sri lanka curry and the fruits.

Staying at Hantana Range View is experiencing, first hand, the hospitality of the planting community as it was. Patrick and Frances were gracious, generous and gregarious, entertaining and informing us with anecdotes of their interesting lives and information and tips of where to go and what to do and see in Kandy.
The food was excellent, as was the company!
While our stay was short - just three days - we left vowing to return at the very first chance we get.

Room Tip: The view from the rooms, across the valley, to the Hantana Range offers breathtaking views of the s...

We spent five great days in Kandy staying with Frances and Patrick. The house is beautiful, the views amazing, and the food was excellent. We had heard that Sri Lankans are a very hospitable people, but this stay took that experience to a new level. Nothing was too difficult, and we had lots of advise of where to go and what was worth seeing. They are a very friendly couple which made our stay very comfortable. We also enjoyed Patricks choice of music.! If we visit Sri Lanka again we will definitely be staying with this lovely couple. We look forward to being able to do this.

Room Tip: Just ask them
