The train from Ella to Kandy stops in fact at railway station in Peradeniya and not in Kandy, therefore we preferred to stay in KANDY GUESTHOUSE in Peradeniya. The gentle owner, George, waited at the railway station to bring us in his guesthouse. We were happy as we had quite heavy luggage. We arrived at his beautiful villa in the...

George's home is beautiful, located near a lovely stream. The rooms are very nicely decorated and the bathrooms large and clean. George and his family are extremely accommodating and breakfast served on the balcony was extra special. I stayed at George's home with a group of girlfriends and would highly recommend.

My friends and I travelled to Kandy and stayed with George and Michelle in their beautiful guest house. The rooms were clean and the location was lovely alongside the river. George is very accommodating and organised a visit to a reputable gem store, took us to a great restaurant for lunch and then saw a cultural concert in the evening...

Each room has their own bathroom and the water is hot with good pressure! The house is on the river which is lovely. Breakfast was included and...

It was a breathtaking forest view, not only that while having some drinks in the veranda you can see the train passing by and you can hear the water flowing from the small spring nearby.. environmental friendly place.. quiet place and good for families, friends and couples.. A lots of tourist spots near this place so we didn't feel bored...

He organised a custom made perfect itinerary for us which included a Kandy city tour, temple visits, relaxation in the Botanical gardens, visits to the viewpoint, tea factory, spice gardens,...

The family owners were very friendly and helpful, making our stay in this idyllic river setting well away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy delightful. George kindly took us to the train station for the next leg of our journey which was pre booked so we couldn't take advantage of his many tour suggestions though his other business Michelle...

We enjoyed everything, and everybody was very kind. The food and the service was excellent. We had a nice room, with a beautiful view. We really enjoyed the little balcony front of our room, where we spent our evenings.
