We stayed here for one night before we embarked on our train trip to Ella. I booked a superior guest room, it was really clean with good quality linen A/C and a brand new fitted wetroom. We paid £37 for a night here and it exceeded my expectations, this is a great place to crash if you are looking for somewhere clean and hospitable. Please be aware this place has no elevator and quite steep stairs so you may want to keep this in mind if you are not the most mobile of people, if your a light sleeper like me this is on a main road so you may need to pop in some ear plugs. I'm giving this place 5 stars as you really could not get any better value for money for a clean hotel, with polite staff anywhere in Kandy.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for the superior room

This hotel is not plush, it's a guest house run by a Sri Lankan family who also live here. However the location is superb for all the main attractions in Kandy, the rooms are clean, the en suite had a really good shower and there was a little seating area too. We booked a superior room with air con which was great, really cool, plus there was wifi throughout the property. But the 5 star review is for the value for money that this hotel offers, the room was incredibly cheep and the staff were terrific. After yomping through the midday heat of the busy city we were greeted with cool towels and a lovely welcome, and on check out day the manager realising our train was later in the afternoon offered to 'mind' our luggage until later in the day for us to enjoy the city.
When we return to Kandy we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We booked a superior room with air conditioning, would recommend this.

This is a nice small guest house not far from city center. The signage of the hotel is not easy to find and the guest house door is inside the garage. You need to drive slowy and the next door is pharmacy Kumaran(?). As this guest house is at Kandy-Colombo Highway, but it is about 5-7 minutes walk to Clock Tower. As it is at busy road then expect some traffic noise but not in midnight as the traffic get lesser. The check in is very efficient and the receptionist is very kind with all the information. No lift in this guest house and expect to climb stairs. The eating area is just at the ground floor with the kitchen, the host cooks the meal and it tastes great. The room is adequate in size, clean and very nice bed. No coffee or tea making facility in room,but you can help yourself in the kitchen area. Two bottles of free water given in each room and there is no cloth hanger inside the room. In every floor there is sitting area. The bathroom is small with standing shower, the water power is average but the hot water is great, it gets hot very fast. Wifi is not that good and quite slow inside the room. To get stronger signal,it is better to go to common sitting area. The breakfast is ala carte with three choice, but is sufficient. The kitchen staffs are so kind and work very well. As this is a guest house, it is suitable for guest who spend more time outside and just need a clean and comfortable place to sleep. Very recommended for short stay in Kandy....

Room Tip: Choose room at the back if you are a light sleeper as rooms facing the front immediately facing the...

I was very impressed with every aspect of this small hotel located in the heart of the city.
The staff are all very professional and courteous. The rooms are very clean, with comfortable beds, quiet a/c, and abundant hot water.
There was a choice of breakfast options, all served with delicious homemade marmalades (orange, pineapple and passion fruit).
They arranged are all transportation (tuk tuks and long distance taxi).

This hotel is a delight. Breakfast wonderful, home made jam yummy! Staff all very polite and welcoming, room had a fan, wasn't so large, hot water and a private roof top garden. Is within walking distance of the Queens Hotel, Temple of the Tooth, the Lake and en route are many restaurants to choose to eat from. Highly recommend this clean, well run hotel.
