We had booked for one night in the moonlit room but were lucky enough to have the entire cottage to ourselves during our stay. The cottage is tucked away from Kandy central; about a 10 minute walk from the lake, spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. Our room was comfortable and spacious. Thomas, the new manager of 2-3 months was helpful...

Kandy Cottage impressed right from the outset as they arranged transport to collect us from our previous accommodation. The cottage is in a really quiet location yet is only about 15 minutes walk from the main road leading into Kandy itself. The cottage is managed by Thomas who is superb. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was...

I stayed one night in Kandy and had the good fortune of picking Kandy Cottage. I arrived from the train station in the evening, and Thomas was there waiting to meet me on arrival. From the moment I arrived to the time that I left he was nothing but enormously helpful and informative. The tone of the stay was set...

This is a fantastic little gem in Kandy. It is much more than just a place to sleep- it feels like a Sri Lankan home from home! Toby and Mani are so accommodating and helpful. Make sure you eat there as the food is absolutely delicious and many of the ingredients are sourced in the garden. I thoroughly enjoyed staying...

This place really exceeded my expectations. From the time I booked Tobi went out of his way to accommodate my requests. He also met me off the train, which I didn't expect, and gave a mini guided tour of Kandy on the way to the cottage. The cottage is on a hillside just outside Kandy town, and is surrounded by...

Tobi, the manager, went out of his way to make me and my friends comfortable and happy. The tour of the garden (where I ate right off of the trees), stories and tips, nice decorations, and amazing breakfast made this the highlight of my week in Sri Lanka. Great for families, couple, friends, and singles... Would go on and on...
