We were booked to stay here tonight but ended up having to seek accommodation somewhere else. The owner has obviously lost the plot. Our driver phoned him for directions and he was met with only a rude reply. When we finally arrived at the door we weren't allowed in because apparently he had not told the lady that works there...

Loved the location so much! Great views of monkeys playing in trees and the jungle below from our room and the shared terrace. It was the perfect spot to enjoy the peace and quiet of the jungle - but also just a short walk into Kandy to make the most of the city. The rooms was big and comfortable and...

We had a nice visit to Forest Glen and it suited our needs for the nights we spent there. The rooms were quite basic, the bathrooms very basic with no storage space, a broken toilet seat and poor water pressure on the upper level. But the attentive staff made up for that and the location, close to town but away...

Great place to stay. Seems in the middle of nowhere, but you quickly realise that this is a special place, with forest vistas only 10 minutes from the centre of town. Access very easy and returning by tuktuk from anywhere in town is no problem. The hostess, Indra is very helpful. We wanted to come to Kandy a day early,...

Forest Glen is a unique experience; a heritage building with massive if simple rooms, very classy hostess who is an amazing cook, incredible views to the forest yet only a fifteen minute walk into downtown Kandy. It is an island of tranquility in a busy small city. Home-cooked breakfasts and dinner too if you want. The clientele is equally interesting....

After a day visiting it was very nice to come back to green and peaceful Forest Glen. The hostess was welcoming and cooked us delicious curries. The rooms are simple but clean. We enjoyed sitting on the terras where free wifi was available. Forest Glen could be a nice place to go back to.

Our stay in Kandy, Forest Glen was incredible. From the first moment we felt welcome, untill deep in our heart. The environement is breathtaking beautiful. Pure, untouched nature. Kandy city ( the center ) is located on 10 minutes walking distance and there always tuk-tuks to bring you back. Indra, the host, is an incredible lady. Time afte time she...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Forest Glen in Kandy. It's a real gem! Located in the hills overlooking Kandy, it's got amazing views. It's right next to a national park and only a short walk to the centre of Kandy. If you don't want to walk up the hill, it's easy to get a tuktuk. Our room was...

This beautiful hotel is nestled in the forest, absolutely stunning and tranquil surroundings, yet only a ten minute walk from the city. Its an oasis. The rooms are lovely and clean with terrific views, breakfast on the balcony is divine, and to wake to bird calls instead of traffic is bliss. I highly recommend it.
