The rooms are nice and clean amd the breakfast was lovely. The place is a bit outside of the center what is nice at night as you are away from the traffic but on the other hand you have to be aware of the 10min extra walk (or Tuktuk).

I went with my family to the forest glen guest house. The place when you stay in kandy is ideal because it's outside of the city center, but close enough to go to the main points with a tuk tuk, or even by foot. The guest house is in a small forest and you're not disturbed by the pollution of... More

We spent 3 nights with a toddler. This was recommended to us, but our experience was rather disappointing. The rooms are clean and well sized, but bathrooms could do with some repairs/renovation. The location is outside the city at the border of a forest, so it is quiet with lots of monkeys and birds. Hot water and Wifi works fine,... More

My wife and I were looking to find a quiet place, but not too far from the town centre. Forest Glen was the perfect place! Located close by the entrance of Udawatekelle sanctuary but only a ten to fifteen minute walk to town. Our room was large, comfortable and overlooked'll ed the sanctuary. Mornings and evenings spent on the balcony... More

We were booked to stay here tonight but ended up having to seek accommodation somewhere else. The owner has obviously lost the plot. Our driver phoned him for directions and he was met with only a rude reply. When we finally arrived at the door we weren't allowed in because apparently he had not told the lady that works there...

Loved the location so much! Great views of monkeys playing in trees and the jungle below from our room and the shared terrace. It was the perfect spot to enjoy the peace and quiet of the jungle - but also just a short walk into Kandy to make the most of the city. The rooms was big and comfortable and... More
