The name does not like: very friendly! Centrally located, affordable clean rooms with hot showers, a great verandah to chill out on (WIFI and 3 Coins), and tasty food are all reasons to enjoy your stay at Maduaglle Friendly Guest House.

But, the main reason for staying here is to soak in the warm hospitality provided by the wonderful hosts who will do everything and anything to ensure you make the most of your stay.

We also arranged with our hosts a driver for the length of our stay in Sri Lanka (4 weeks). We received a very competitive price (cheap!) and a very professional, kind, thoughtful, safe driver who we recommend for anybody looking for a driver over the course of their stay.

Thank you!!

Room Tip: Need a driver? Look no further......... a very kind man with some 40 years of driving experience who would love to drive you. Contact this guest house.

Owner very welcoming and oblidging. Room felt safe & secure behind the main part of the house. Has international wall plug and free wi fi that operates well from your bedroom. Home made meals are made from organic produce. Make sure you try her home made jam with morning breakfast.
Lovely family. We would definately recommend for the price paid

Room Tip: Book early, we were unable to extend our stay, as her limited amount of rooms were full

This lovely, friendly and family-run guest house is a fantastic base from which to explore Kandy. The location is great, only a short walk from the lake and town centre and easily reached from the station by tuk tuk.
The house itself is beautifully decorated, and gives a facinating insight into the history of the family who have lived in it for generations. Kumari herself is an incredibly welcoming host; she will go out of her way to ensure that you enjoy your stay, and will cook up a delicious Sri Lankan meal served with a smile every evening. Her food was comfortably better than anything we ate in Kandy town.
The rooms are basic but clean, and there is free wi-fi access within the house.
I would highly recommend staying here for an authentic Sri Lankan experience.

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely guesthouse. You will be excellently looked after and advised by the wonderful Kumari. The rooms are clean and simple. The breakfast is tasty and Kumari's dinners are certainly worth trying for good Sri Lankan food. You will be warmly welcomed here as it is very laid back and relaxed. Excellent value.

Its location is perfect for exploring Kandy on foot and with Kumari's help we organised trips to the Elephant Orphanage and Lion's Rock at Sigirya. Both were excellent (get to the Orphanage early for a less touristy experience). We the took a local bus to the Botanical gardens which are worth a visit. The guest house helped to make our stay in Kandy very memorable.

You'd never know it to look at but behind the White exterior there is a lovely family run guesthouse hiding. The owner is amazingly helpful, telling you the best sights, when to go and how to get there. Great home cooked Sri lankan food. Rooms are basic but clean and nice. There is an early wake up call by a train but only the one and it really isn't a problem. Would definitely go back
