Just to briefly some up our experience. John made us feel like we were staying over at our parents place again. The kindness and hospitality we experienced was tremendous. The rooms are more than ok for backpackers. John provided us with useful tips for the rest of our journey. FYI A ride from and to the city center is about...

Good: I booked a single room with private shower, what I got was a shared dormitory and shared shower. The owner was very understanding and things eventually got sorted out. The hotel’s about 2 km from the town centre, which is a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute walk downhill to get bus 622 to the centre for USD...

We stayed in the Blue Haven Guesthouse in Kandy for two nights, which was modest but great if you don't fancy a big hotel. The food was good, and the room big and clean. There are almost no good restaurants or bars in Kandy, therefore choose your guest house or hotel wisely, as most tourists eat where they stay. Ask...

Our room (7) was in desperate need of an update, paint was old and peeling and the mosquito net had many repairs. Unfortunately there must have been a dump behind the hotel which made our room stink of cabbage unless we kept the bathroom door shut. Also if you stay here bring ear plugs as the dogs were very noisy!...

We stayed at the Blue Haven Guest House as part of a private tour we booked through Blue Haven Tours. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, and the staff pleasant and helpful. It's the average type of guest house accommodation we stayed at on our trip - nothing fancy but perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay. We also ate dinner...
