Friendly and good service by the owner. Very homely too! I love the balcony with its mini alfresco gardens. Love the family photos in the dining room - the dad used to be a temple chief. The home cooked Sri Lankan dinner feels authentic - it is a must try! Breakfast was ordinary with just the usual toast with jam,...

The name does not like: very friendly! Centrally located, affordable clean rooms with hot showers, a great verandah to chill out on (WIFI and 3 Coins), and tasty food are all reasons to enjoy your stay at Maduaglle Friendly Guest House. But, the main reason for staying here is to soak in the warm hospitality provided by the wonderful hosts...

Owner very welcoming and oblidging. Room felt safe & secure behind the main part of the house. Has international wall plug and free wi fi that operates well from your bedroom. Home made meals are made from organic produce. Make sure you try her home made jam with morning breakfast. Lovely family. We would definately recommend for the price paid

This lovely, friendly and family-run guest house is a fantastic base from which to explore Kandy. The location is great, only a short walk from the lake and town centre and easily reached from the station by tuk tuk. The house itself is beautifully decorated, and gives a facinating insight into the history of the family who have lived in...

You'd never know it to look at but behind the White exterior there is a lovely family run guesthouse hiding. The owner is amazingly helpful, telling you the best sights, when to go and how to get there. Great home cooked Sri lankan food. Rooms are basic but clean and nice. There is an early wake up call by a...

We recently stayed with Kumari. She was very helpful and friendly and her place was perfect for visiting Kandy and surroundings. So much so that we cancelled our stay in a guesthouse in the hills over Kandy and extended our stay with her. You really can reach everything in Kandy on foot from her place. Don't be put off by...

Kumari and her husband, along with their team of helpers run a lovely and cosy guesthouse very centrally located in the town of Kandy. When you enter you are met with a friendly welcome, a cool drink and a calming old-world atmosphere that comes from Kumari's family and past generations having lived in this home for the last 200 years...
