Not far from Kandy's lake is Freedom lodge. A beautiful white house in a nice garden. Held by a realy welcoming family. One of our best place to stay in Sri Lanka. Breakfast is served on a large terrace. The guest house is only 5 mn away from railway station.

This is a great place to stay in Kandy, close enough to the centre but away from the loud traffic. We had a nice room (the bathroom was a bit rough round the edges but fine) comfy bed and nice balcony. The owner was very friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Really nice big house you feel really safe in. Also nice rooms but bit pricey compared to other places in Sri Lanka. We also took the possibility of eating curry there because we thought it would be something special. But it was pretty regular for a really high price. So I can recomend staying here but eating somewhere else.

The rooms are spacious and clean, breakfast is ok and the owners are really nice and helpful. It's a bit pricey, but that is the case everywhere in Sri Lanka where there are many tourists and few guesthouses. Still on of the best places we stayed at in SL.

Nice home stay with a very nice family. Breakfast ok and dinner good. The room was simple and very clean. A bit noisy as the upper part of window and door is just a grid.

This was a family run establishment, clean, well-appointed room; very good homemade Sir Lankan food; no more than 15-minute walk from central Kandy; interesting guests from all over; very helpful owners and staff; perhaps best place we stayed in during 3.5 weeks in S.L.

We really loved our stay here. They were very welcoming and friendly to us. God service. Our room was nice and clean - and surprisingly big! The location is also pretty good and close to many things. Our "host mom" was so nice to tell us every time before we left how much we should pay for a tugtug to...

We stayed for 1 night and our opinion is that this guesthouse is overrated! Rooms were simple and clean. Our room was facing the street and was quite noisy. We had dinner and food was ok but nothing exceptional, however it was the most expensive we had in a guesthouse during the whole trip.

Freedom Lodge has everything travellers could want in a guest house. The hosts are unbelievably friendly and helpful in informing you about what to visit in the area (the botanical gardens, temple of the tooth and a local Sri Lankan dance show are definitely worth a look in!) We were picked up from the airport when we arrived and were...

We read the review in Lonely Planet and when we get to Kandy we were straight to this guest house. The rooms are ok, the bathrooms ok as well, I will try to avoid rooms next to the kitchen as the smell is quite upsetting most of the day and the noise in the early morning can disturb a little...
