Great family run guesthouse, clean and comfortable with good breakfast. Tours can be arranged by the owner and they help with all travel questions. Around 600 metre walk east of the Temple of the Tooth and nice quiet area. Good family atmosphere.

It's a small family managed hotel and it's owner was very friendly and helpful. You can decline breakfast offer and try to bargain. It seems to be distant from lake and city center but actually it's only about 15 minutes walking (tuk tuk has to go around lake).

The owner is a very nice old man. He organized a trip for us - he booked a car with a driver and went with us as a guide. He knows a lot about Kandy and sights nearby. The breakfast was delicious, but a bit expensive. Location is quite OK - it is 10-15 minutes of walking from the Temple....

I booked this hotel through Booking.com and was under the impression the bathroom was off the bedroom not down the hall. The bathroom had a strong moth ball smell that also came into our room. When I asked about the smell they said it was to get rid of bugs and the odour. They had put the moth balls in...

Near the lake and the temple, a little bit far from the railway station. Our room was clean and the price for breakfast a little to high! The nature is near by. Monkeys come to you! A good restaurant - Pub - is in a near distance (300 m)
