Tillek is a great host. Their breakfast is fantastic with a variety of fruits and eggs and plenty of toast . It is high up above Kandy with great views. We ate in one night and the food was great. You need your own alcohol. They have a computer to provide free access to the internet plus they also have... More

This was the beginning of my 6 week trip to Sri Lanka. What a wonderful warm stay i had at this lovely place.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights after scouting a number of places for accommodation that would meet our budget. The General and his wife greeted us with a smile and opened their home to us both with brilliant English and keen for a chat. First impressions last and this one was brilliant. A clean, friendly, homely place... More

The best thing about this special guest house is the charismatic couple who own it; they run their business with passion and an attentiveness that is yet yo be matched in my travelling experience.

This guesthouse is located in the beautiful hills above Kandy with great views and a peaceful atmosphere. However, it's location can also be a bit of a drag - it takes at least 30mins to walk up to the house and 20mins to walk down. This is a minimum of 150rs each way in a tuk tuk which is something...

My stay here was just average; the location is remote. I didn't mind at all the walk down, but be prepared to get a tuk tuk to return. My room was very average as well. I think I was room 5; it opens to a nice balcony/deck, but right next door is the owner's daughter and 2 very young children,... More

we only stayed here one night but it worth every penny! For a family room we paid about 14 pounds. The couple who run this place were really lovely. They helped us arrange a driver and helped us plan our trip. The room was basic but clean and comfortable.

The Spica Holiday Home is a Gem. Situated in the hills 2 and a half Kilometers ( 15 minutes walk or 7 minutes in a Tuk-Tuk) from the centre of Kandy; it is very quiet with fantastic views over the valley. Tillek and Chitra, a couple in their 70’s, are the most amazing hosts. You will receive the warmest of... More

We stated two nights and enjoyed it a lot. Lovely views, quiet and relaxing yet a short walk (15 mins) to central Kandy and a quick tuk-tuk ride back (approx 300 rupies). Very nice place, lovely, clean rooms. Wifi works well. Their home cooking is excellent!! Felt like a real homestay. The owner, mr Tallak, was very helpful and assisted... More
