“Perfectly Decent B&B, beware of the costly chauffeur”
Reviewed 28 December 2009

This B&B is located up the hill from the Kandy Lake (no views), in an area with lots of B&B places like this one. 10-15 mins walk to 'the downtown'.

The place is very professionally managed, thanks to the enthusiastic and friendly owners.

I stayed at the "Penthouse Suite" - approx 35 USD. It was rather spartan, but perfectly adequate for a B&B place. The bathroom was really nice. The bedsheets were really worn down though.

Beware of their designated driver - I was asked a double-price for a private day trip. The airport transfer (7500) is not that expensive, but still much more than a random driver from the airport (5000-5500).

Sarath and Nalini are what makes Freedom Lodge fantastic. They are great hosts and extremely knowledgable about Kandy and the rest of Sri Lanka. My dad and I stayed there for a couple of nights recently and loved it. As my dad put it, it's like visiting family without the hassle! The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The food is excellent and available if you give them prior notice. A cold beer is always available as is the lovely garden where you can sit and enjoy the said cold beer.
