Amazing place to relax and enjoy nature. The house is located by a stream and the view from the balcony is out of this world. George and his wife go out of their way to make sure your stay is memorable. Breakfast is lovely especially the roti. What a peaceful place!!!!!

I booked the room in Kandy GuestHouse because I wanted to escape from the noise of the city (Kandy). Everything in the guesthouse was as I expected, i.e. comfortable and clean rooms, nice atmosphere, quiet, view on the river, good breakfast and wifi, staff speaks English very fluently. The guesthouse is far away from the city (about 5 km) but...

This was our first introduction to Sri Lanka and we were blessed to have found George and Ann's wonderful home and hospitality. We were made to feel so at home and our room, overlooking the river was just incredibly relaxing ( by the way, every room has the same lovely view), a true forest hideaway. We booked 2 nights loved...

Kandy Guest House is in a very quiet, green and relaxing location. The food is fantastic! Try and clarify the price before (the food is fantastic but a bit pricey). The location is beautiful - right next to the river so you can hear the river when sleeping! One thing, however, is that it is not actually in Kandy. It...

Such a pleasure to stay at George's place last week. Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Exactly what you want in a small guesthouse! The food was great - really authentic Sri Lankan. Even had banana curry, never tried until now. Really liked the bedroom down by the river, and very good bathroom (but George, perhaps frost the...

Our first experience in Sri Lanka with the family (daughters 6 and 8) was our stay at Kandy Guest House and it was memorable.

George and Ann are amazing hosts. And their children are so sweet too! You really feel at home here. George is so helpful, he took the time to help us get a jacket made for our wedding, surprised my partner with a birthday cake, and gave us lifts to and from town. Ann is an amazing cook! Wonderful Sri Lankan...
