George was super helpful during our trip to Sri Lanka. We booked his tour service - Madumal took us on a wonderful day trip. George also helped us during the holiday period with his driving service, his local knowledge, advice and experience was invaluable. George also has the facility to purchase train tickets on your behalf - I would recommend... More

A wonderful, peaceful place to stay!. My private balcony overlooked a stream. Delicious breakfasts served on china. George was incredibly helpful with ideas and supplying me with a driver (ask for Sandy - he's great!) to the places I wanted to see.

The location is great because of the garde in full nature, but it s a bit far from Kandy centre. The rooms are clean and good. The balcony is really top. Breakfast is excellent and the George, the host is a very kind person. The only negative point is the train passing by the house in the night. This sound... More

This great place is situated a bit outside of Kandy, but the spectacular views from your balcony are well worth it. Very peacefull. The best room we have had so far and a nice shower.

When the tuktuk driver dropped us in front of the guest house, we were a little taken by its seemingly inconvenient location but after we got our bearings, we realized we were actually not that far away from all the amenities! Peradeniya botanical garden is a short tuktuk ride away. Our room had a cute little balcony which overlooks a... More

We had a wonderful stay at Kandy Guest House. The flowing river by the side of our room and balcony was a charm like no other. We slept like a baby at this wonderful place and also had scrumptious meals there. Loved it!

George and his family are amazing and friendly hosts. The homemade dishes are way more delicious than those you could expect in a hotel. The room is comfortable and clean. The yard and the balcony are good places to spend your time chatting with your friends or family. The sight of the room is beautiful and peaceful. I would definitely... More
