We stayed for 3 nights. Staff were attentive and friendly. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, also organizing trips and taxis. Kandy was approx. 5min drive away. But transport -tuk tuks- were ready available and cheap. Room was adequate but the house is small and we were aware of noise from our children and...

I stayed for only 2 nights at Kandy Cottage before exploring the rest of Sri Lanka. I wish I had booked for more! I have never had such a positive and welcoming at a guesthouse in my life! The property was amazing and the managers kind and extremely helpful (Thanks again Tobi). Kandy Cottage is conveniently located right above Kandy...

Kandy Cottage is a real find. The people, the atmosphere, the location are just right. This is Sri Lanka the way it used to be and what people love best about the country. Toby and his team are delightful and their enthusiasm for sharing genuine Sri Lankan food, culture, history and wildlife with their guests is infectious. The location is...

Let's get the negative out of the way first. We stayed at the Moonlit Space, which admittedly was not the romantic room it promised to be, and the cottage was also not necessarily in a "wooded area" but more into a crevice carved into the hill surrounded by trees. There were loads od bugs in the bathrooms as a result...

Kandy Cottage is a delightful place to stay in Kandy. It is calm and peaceful - a home from home and a lovely place to return to after a day's battling in Kandy. Toby, Henry and the other staff could not be more friendly or helpful. Toby goes the extra mile in helping his guests get what they need and...

Kandy Cottage is a very special place, and you will be lucky to stay there! Very quiet and calm, and a pleasant respite from Kandy's hustle and bustle. The food is absolutely delicious, and the people who work there are all very kind and welcoming. The rooms themselves are very clean and decorated with care. I highly recommend staying there!

My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights at the Kandy Cottage in February of 2012. We loved our stay and look forward to returning. Why did we like it so much? 1. The property itself is nice. The interior is well-maintained and clean. The exterior is decorated with edible fruit trees, a nice lawn and is away from the bustle...
