This hotel was a friendly, family run hotel with amazing views of Kandy. It is set on a hillside, off the beaten track and not too easy to find. However, it is worth the visit and tuck tusk will take you there if needed. We stayed in the newly developed block in a very clean, good sized, air conditioned room...

We visited this hotel with family and though the location was a lil difficult to reach , the stay at this hotel was all worth it! The rooms were cosy and clean and it was like living in an ancient styled villa .. There were books to borrow to read and ancient styles decor all over the place. We were...

Finding the hotel was a little difficult as it is out of Kandy and on back roads. My room was set up for a family with queen bed and two singles with ensuite (and A/C) but was fine. I had the impression that they were not expecting us (even though our travel company had booked us) but service was fine....

Great hotel with friendly personnel, nice rooms (incl. AC) with fantastic view from the hilltop facing Kandy city. To get there, driver or TukTuk recommended as the hotel is situated outside of the city on the hillside. Perfect after an exhausting day in Kandy city.

This is really basic old small hotel witch would need quite a lot of repair to get in good shape. It is good for one night stay but not much more. It is situated on the hill with a narrow rough and winding road. CHECK IN/OUT went smoothly. ROOM is normal size, clean but without closet, refrigerator, hair dryer or...

We managed to obtain two double rooms here at very short notice after the Hotel Suisse cancelled our rooms less than four hours before we were to check in. From the first phone call the Manager, Anura, and his staff were accommodating and helpful. The road up to this guesthouse which clings to the hills [providing a lovely outlook from...

We spent two days in this guest house and it was perfect for us. It is not near Kandy, you need 10-15 min by tuktuk to reach it. But it has a great view over Kandy and is so carefully designed (minimalistic, cute, local, cosy chairs, large bathroom, romantic dining room, pleasant pool) that we could easily stay longer if...

Our room was nice enough and the bed was comfortable, but when I asked for a blanket (there was none of any kind), I was given a mattress pad. The room REEKED of moth balls that had been tossed by the dozen into the armoire. The smell was overpowering to the extent that I had a hard time sleeping until...

The Change is great place to stay near Kandy. Kandy is just too busy but the The Change is excellent choice to stay - nice rooms, nice owner and staff and great food. And the best is great view. And the breakfast in the nice decorated room with a view and small pool in the garden. We have really enjoyed.
