We had a terrific evening here. Nestled in the hills above Kandy, wonderfully peaceful full of wildlife--that doesn't keep you up all night. The room was nice, isolated from others with a balcony and comfortable chairs overlooking the city below. A/C present and worked fine. Also had a ceiling fan as a bonus. Staff were terrific--friendly, prompt, happy to assist...

The hotel is kind of far away from the city up in the hills, the road is bumpy but once you are here you can feel peace. The hotel is clean and simple, the dinning area is really cute, super clean and a great ambient. The bedroom is really simple, fan and ac, bathroom is big and comfy with the...

Yes, the road to the hotel is winding. Yes, the staff are friendly and accommodating. Yes, the room, though small, was clean. But, no, it is not air conditioned - at least room number five is not. And there are mosquitos so one can't keep the windows open. So, sleeping is a very hot experience.

A wonderful little guesthouse in the hills away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy. Getting here involved a beautiful, adventurous ride up the hill with a beautiful view of the valley below. One of the highlights was a lovely pool which was cleaned every morning and so inviting on a hot Sri Lankan Day. The owner, Manager and staff...

Let me tell you, the trip up the hill to the hotel is amazing, full of sharp turns and deeply inclined ups and downs, it was great just to go to town and return! They have an excellent kitchen with a great chef (Anura, the owner) that serves nicely prepared Sri Lankan and semi western meals, no need to think...

Lovely boutique hotel, great views, nice room with welcoming hosts. Tasty breakfast and pool a bonus. Rooms are cozy and beds comfortable. Basic bathroom with nice warm shower. However be prepared for an adventurous (quite scary) drive up to the hotel!

Do take the title literally, because getting to the hotel really is a little experience in its own right. With that said, this is possibly the best hotel we've been in during our stay in Sri Lanka. It's a lovely place, nicely decorared and with an excellent staff, plus it's small so you get to have your quiet little spot...
