The room I stayed in had an amazing view over Kandy and although basic it was very comfortable and clean. The owner is also incredibly helpfully and arranged transport for us to get to our next destination. I... More

Room was large, little old, but clean. Nice view of the gardens and lake below. Really good service and amazing local food. Owner bought beer to the room too. Good value for money. Lock doors and keep windows closed due to the monkeys who love to play on the roof.

I do not need luxury on my backpacking trips, this accommodation was perfect for me. Low budget, but nice service, clean and nice room with own bathroom and very quiet, so you can sleep like a stone :) I felt very safe as a woman traveling alone. This accommodation was close to the centre of Kandy, so that you an... More
