This place is a real find! You will brag to your friends about having found a complete gem - albeit pretty out of the way. We had a car and so getting to and from the city of Kandy was not a problem - by public transport it would be difficult.
This is a gorgeous cottage more than a century old. It is spotless thanks to the outstanding work of manager/host Thomas. The rooms are charming, decorated with rustic and antique furniture; the bathrooms are spotlessly clean and lovely to use; the sitting area, study, garden and dining room make this a home-away-from-home.
Thomas is fastidious in his house-keeping - everything from polished glassware to gleaming cutlery - he runs this place like it is a five star hotel!
Unfortunately, I messed up our reservation and so we got to stay only one of our planned two nights. Understandably, the place is booked solid well in advance. They were fantastic locating another place for us to stay - not as charming - that is a tall order to fill - but very nice and great value at the last minute. We really appreciated the help and would dearly have loved to have stayed longer at Kandy Cottage. Easily among the best places we stayed in during our Sri Lanka trip. Book well in advance to make sure you get in and check careful (unlike me) as they are unlikely to have vacancies.
