Its about 10 minutes from the center of Kandy but you neither will hear its noise nor have to breath its dusty air. What you hear are the birds of the forest. Feels like another world away from all the trouble. The hostes is very kind and the house is fascinating. Highly recommended!

Our best stay in Sri Lanka.
The Colonial House and Lady of the House made us truly feel welcome and at home. Surrounded by Jungle and very quite with super clean, comfortable and cosy rooms, we had the best sleep ever. It is worth staying a few days. Kandy city centre is only a 10 minute walk away, but you could easily spend a whole day at the Forest Glen and just dream the day away. We also had a super amazing Curry and Rice dinner cooked for us by the owner. Also one of the best meals we had in Sri Lanka.
You are lucky to stay here. We would come back any time!

What a wonderful spot, 10 minutes walk into Kandy but very quiet and surrounded by trees. A very comfortable, clean large room for a family with hot water shower and wifi. The food at breakfast and evening meal was superb and reasonably priced. Indra was a lovely lady, kind and provided for all of our needs. She was very knowledgable about the area and also interesting to talk to as she had travelled and studied in Australia. Highly recommend this place. We will return.

Forest Glen is only a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Kandy and is set in a beautiful peaceful spot surrounded by forest and wildlife. The villa is very comfortable and relaxing and has a lovely charm to it and Indra and her helpers are very welcoming and hospitable. It's great value for money and we would love to go back some day.

Forest Glen is a nice place to stay after sightseeing in the busy town of Kandy. It is located near by a forest and you hear only birds singing. The rooms are big and clean, the owner is very friendly. Breakfast is served in a big kolonial style dining hall.
