We asked for two days and finally we stayed six. We wanted to rest and relax after three mounths traveling and we felt like at home in a beautifull and clean room managed by a friendly couple. House is very close city centre but still in a quiet place. Highly recommended.

Although they would make breakfast if asked they didn't do evening meals but our stay here was very good and like being with a proper family. The rooms were excellent and the shower nice and hot and powerful. It was great sitting on the patio watching all the birds, monkeys and chinchilla type creatures in the morning around the garden.

My wife and I stayed 3 days there. They have only 3 rooms so you feel familiar. The owners (an elder couple) are very friendly and helpful. We had Sri Lankan breakfast which was delicious. The room was clean and spacious. The house is on the hill in the south of the lake in a quiet area. There are some...

We stayed 3 nights end September 2014 in this family homestay. The eldery couple is nice, although in the beginning the man is a bit reserved. In this time of the year they don't serve dinner or breakfast, but there is a small restaurant around the corner. They have 3 room, each with badroom, clean, hot water, enough place for...

I walked to The Glen from Kandy town. A bit of a walk up but it was no biggie. Of course, along the way up, there will be people trying to convince you to take their places but just politely decline and be firm with you choice. The Glen is a home and not a hotel. The elderly couple who...

We had a chance to stay here for 2 beautiful nights. The elderly couple was hosting us their place, preparing great food and giving great advise for sight-seeing in Kandy. Nice and clean rooms, very nice hosts and homely atmosphere. Be aware of the tuk-tuk drivers, some of them try to get a comission from other places, when they bring...

This place is really good. Very kind owners, the room was nice, big and clean with free wifi. They have also a dinning room. Breakfast is good but you can also bring your food. They don't cook dinner. Location is also good. We walked to the city. It's not too far. Marko & Lidija

We were delighted to find this gem of a B and B amidst the hustle and bustle of the rest of this steep street! The rooms are still impeccably clean with reliable hot water. The hosts are very helpful and for a charge Camilla was happy to do our laundry in her washing machine for us. A big bonus when...

We stayed here in April for a few days after staying elsewhere in the area. It is a bit hidden away up the hill with lots of new developments and hotels being built nearby but is still a nice cosy retreat. The owners are lovely, the rooms are beautiful but it is misleading when advertised as they did say they...
