I was travelling from Ella and on the train and intended getting off at Hatton, but enjoyed the train so much I kept going until Kandy. Consequently I hadn't booked accommodation and just picked somewhere out of the guidebook and phoned to book from the train without reading any reviews. This was the worst accommodation I stayed at in Sri Lanka - a very basic room and bathroom, and really overpriced. The rooms are built around a well-like courtyard so the noise from each floor carries up to the other floors making it very noisy. I would not recommend and with so many other guest houses in the area there have to be better options for the price.

We stayed here for 2 nights on the groundfloor first room near the gate. It was a clean basic room with shared bathroom but a little bit noisy in the morning (next to the gate). We payed 2500 rupi. they did our laundry for 1000 rupi. And it was 50 rupi for 2 hours wifi. The old lady arranged a tuk tuk for a hole day, elephant orphanage, Thea factory, botanical garden, view on Kandy city. The guy was really great, polite and helpful. Didn't push us to go to spice gardens and other things where they get commissions. Mr senarath thank you! Not like in other reviews, the old lady threaded us very correct, was helpful and we had nice conversations.

Having visited Kandy several years earlier I had a pretty good idea of the neighborhood but had not stayed here previously. I had called ahead from the airport in Colombo to ascertain availability, and arrived in what seemed like the middle of the night. Nevertheless, my room was ready. In addition to a clean, comfortable room and good vibes on arrival, the breakfast setup (extra charge) was especially rewarding, as the table was set up for 6, and there was always an opportunity to chat with fellow travelers about the usual topics and exchange information. I stayed 4 nights and returned a week later for a one night stopover; the room this time was even better (and a bit more expensive) with a fine view. A possible downside; the dining choices for dinner in the area were not particularly good.
The Tripadvisor setup does not allow for a "not applicable" and will not accept a review without checking one of the circles; this is a major flaw, as many of the less expensive guesthouses have no fitness center or pool!

Room Tip: Better to pay a bit extra and enjoy the view, although the inside rooms aren't bad.

Wasn't sure about this place after reading the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Clean, comfy room with hot water and strong wifi connection (for a nominal fee-50rps for 2hrs).

The room price varies depending on what level you stay but everywhere around the place has a really homely feel and is nicely decorated. Would definitely go back if staying in Kandy

We felt really welcome arriving here and the hosts were really helpful and caring, sort of felt like going to your grandparents house. Room was really clean, view was great and although it doesn't do food the Sharon Inn a couple of minutes away did an amazing evening buffet of home-cooked food.
