Myself and my partner stayed here in February 2014 due to the great reviews on this website. However, we were a little disappointed. Our room (upstairs at the back of the house) was a little dirty, with spiderwebs, dust & other particles indicating that it had not had a thorough cleaning in a while. If it were completely clean, the...

These people were occupying a room installed with air conditioner. They did not use a/c and used the room with windows open. So, an entry of a little spider is not uncommon in Sri Lankan homes. We provide good vehicles which are properly insured ie fully insured NOT third party, drivers that we provide are registered drivers for tourists, NOT...

A very nice place with a beautiful garden a nice view to Kandy and the mountains. The owner and his wife are very kind and helped us for organizing a guide for a tour to Knuckles Mountain Range and gave us some tips. We came accidently with friends and there were not enough rooms available. We were offered a private...

The room was booked by phone just before arriving in Kandy in the evening. I was going to stay here for one night but spent six nights due to weather conditions on the island. At the end of my stay, the Master, Mr. Tillek, kindly arranged my transfer to the Yala Park by minivan with an intelligent driver at a...

Clean Guest House on top of a steep hill with great views over the surrounding hills from the large balcony. The elderly couple who run the place are friendly and charming. Breakfast was great. There was decent wifi. The rooms are clean with nice furniture, aircon and mosquito nets. Would go there again.

This is one of the biggest lies against us. This person and his wife came here on the 14th June 2014, from the guest house he recommends now which he condemned at that time. Now, he is advising you to go there. That is OK. We, that is Bluehaven and us work together helping each other. His comments are all...

We stayed there just one night, no dinner, just breakfast. After breakfast we were sorry we didn't order dinner there, because the breakfast was delicious and I suppose dinner would be as well. The room was nice and clean, and the owners (older couple) are really nice and hospitable. I highly recommend staying there.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights. It was comfortable enough but a couple of things to note: there's no AC which is a downside for some people, breakfast is not included in the price, and you can only pay in cash. The rooms were, however, clean (although not spotless) and the view was lovely. When we arrived...

Clean hostel, beautiful environment and the owners are very nice and are willing to give you Information about anything. Good value for money! The place is a bit out of town but this was actually all we needed. Make sure you get the scrambled eggs in the morning!
