We made a wonderful 1 week trip around Sri Lanka with Dimuthu. He is a skilled driver and advised us on how to arrange our visits for the best. He was flexible and dedicated. The Guesthouse in Candy is well located with a swimming pool and a nice view on the city.

Of all the places I stayed in Sri Lanka, this was my favourite. Excellent value with a team that was so obliging we felt like visiting dignitaries - only I know they treat all their guests the same way. After the (polluted) hustle and bustle of the centre of down it is, as the title, suggests a "haven" of peace...

Beautiful location, pleasant staff, reasonable food but dilapidated and filthy rooms. Such a shame as the location is great. Very busy, so they should spend some money as they are obviously making money. So much of the accommodation in Sri Lanka is sub standard and in need of refurbishment. Often felt they were getting it too easily. Prices equivalent to...

The driver was very friendly, did driver very well and showed us a lot of things. He even stopped at beaches to show us, we did not know before and was waiting patiently, when we were for quite a while at one of the beaches. In advance the email communication with the agency was great - they replied very quickly...

Our stay was OK, but we did not find the rooms clean enough, and the swimming pool did not look welcoming at all! We did not have dinner there but the breakfast was very poor compared to our other hotels in Sri Lanka. Staff was OK

The pictures for the guest rooms must be really outdated. We booked 2 different rooms, one on the 2nd floor and one on the ground floor. They were both the most disgusting rooms we have stayed at in a long time! The room is filled with mildew that when you walk in, the odor hits you right away. I couldn't...

Lovely guesthouse, basic rooms, and beautiful views. The guest house is slightly out of the town centre and is a leisurely walk into town (however I would not walk back in the dark - one of the downfalls but a tuk tuk is cheap back up so not a big problem), and as it out of time it is so...

We stayed at Blue Haven for 3 nights, it is excellent value and has a lovely view. The rooms are basic but clean. The food is really delicious and remarkably low priced, each meal seems to be individually cooked, it takes a while to come but is worth the wait! The staff are delightful and very helpful. We highly recommend...
