We had an amazing stay at George's guesthouse. The rooms are big, on the terrace you sit a few meters from the water in the middle of palm trees and if you need any help, tour or transport George is always available. I highly recommend it!

Our family of four have spent the last two nights at the Kandy Guest House and have had an unforgettable time. George and family are wonderful hosts-nothing is too difficult for them-from picking us up unexpectedly from the train station, driving us around Kandy city and also a day excursion to sigiriya, followed by the spice gardens, best massage ever...

We loved it there! George is the friendly owner who has also his own driving company called Michelle Tours. With George, we explored a lot in and around Kandy. He showed us many places and some local insiders. The Guesthouse is very clean, the bed is comfortable and the rooms have a great relaxing view to the little river -...

We stayed in Mr George's beautiful home for 3 nights. Lovely relaxing stay with a balcony overlooking the stream and surrounded by tropical flora. The room is spacious, extremely clean and the bed is particularly comfortable with large French doors opening out onto the balcony. Nice clean bathroom too. It was lovely to experience life in a Sri Lankan home...

We stayed at this guest house for 1 night. The place is very clean and quite. The owner was friendly and we talked to his 82-year old mother. The best part is the food. We choose to have both dinner and breakfast here and the dinner is the best food we have had in the entire Sri Lanka. In addition,...

We spent some wonderful 3 nights at this home stay / guesthouse. Our room was neat and clean with a nice balcony. Sitting on the balcony you can only hear nature - a small river, birds and frogs. Very relaxing! The trains also pass by but did not bother us. Breakfast was very good and one evening we had tasty...

The joy of leaving the massive traffic jam behind and driving up to the coolness of the hills to Kandy Guest House for 3 nights was a highlight. The double room with balcony was a good size, as was the ensuite bathroom. Everything is spotless and the ample balcony was perfect to sit and enjoy the really delightful view of...

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...
