Stayed at the Drop inn with my girlfriend for one night. Herbert and his staff were very friendly and obliging hosts. We had the room on the top and the view over Kandy was outstanding! The room was basic but nice and clean. Bathroom was also ok, seen much worse. Breakfast with freshly cooked omlette, toast, fruits and tea/coffee was... More

The hotel itself is very basic, but adequate. It is a good value place to stay for those on a budget, relatively close to Kandy center and with good wifi. The main selling point about this guest house is the owner, Herbert. After our stay, I realised I had left something in our room. Herbert was incredibly helpful on the... More

We stayed at Herbert's place for two nights and we were very satisfied with the service provided. Even though rooms were not oustanding, the location is nice and Herbert is a great host. He dropped us off a couple of time down town and tried to arrange things with the train station when it was fully booked. His driver is... More

We stayed here during July 2015 as a couple. The hotel is up a hill over looking kandy but is close enough to walk to the centre (15 mins) or by tuk tuk (100 rupees max!). The owners were very friendly and we bartered with them to get a driver to dambulla for 2000 less than the local tuk tuk... More
