This is an colonial house about 20 to 30 mins outside the main centre of Kandy. Our room (upstairs suite) had twin double four poster beds - with nets - and was very large and nice - outside was a communal seating area. It was very old and picturesque though they could lose the frilly net curtains. They are not...

We stayed here for two nights with our daughters aged 6 and 4. The hotel is a lovely old colonial building with some very grand but heavily faded rooms - the other selling point for out eldest were the two resident cats which kept her very entertained. The staff are keen to help and tried very hard to make use...

This is a quaint little bungalow which is very aesthetically done in a quiet part of the kandy town. The rooms are beautiful, the staff attentive and the area green and abundant. The only few problems which me and my husband faced while we stayed there for three nights were the poor wifi and the expenses incurred to make a...

This is as beautiful as the pictures shown, helpful staff and comfy beds. I would warn people though that it took us a good 30-40min to get into town which was annoying. Also our room was very light and noisy, the ornately carved doors meant the insulation was non existent. Nice breakfast, lovely grounds.

Favourable Trip Advisor reviews, as best I can recall, resulted in our booking the Manor House for three nights. I need to go back and read them! The Manor House has heaps of potential but requires significant upgrade and makeover. A charming architectural style blending a Kandyian Chieftain's tastes in the 1880's with all the Victorian influences available from the...

We've been 2 nights and we extended 2 additional ones because we found it the perfect start for our travel into Sri Lanka.

Very friendly and caring staff (Vishnu was the good soul of the house), beautiful victorian house. It will take you 20 min + from city centre by cab, but it's worth it. Internet connection was wiggly, but we didn't care about too much. The house is small and you will get personal care for your best.

We stayed for two nights at this small boutique hotel and it felt like travelling through time in an old colonial style house. The food was delicious and very copious, the staff very diligent and the house a real gem. It was relaxing to be slightly away from the traffic and pollution of downtown Kandy.

Manor House Kandy where we stayed one night is one of the most wonderful places I have had a chance to be in. Its an old colonial house lovingly restored by the present owners and each room has a distinct style and decor. The breakfast served in the garden lawns is so perfect.... lovely food, great place to stay!
