Kandy Guest House is in a very quiet, green and relaxing location. The food is fantastic! Try and clarify the price before (the food is fantastic but a bit pricey). The location is beautiful - right next to the river so you can hear the river when sleeping! One thing, however, is that it is not actually in Kandy. It... More

Such a pleasure to stay at George's place last week. Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Exactly what you want in a small guesthouse! The food was great - really authentic Sri Lankan. Even had banana curry, never tried until now. Really liked the bedroom down by the river, and very good bathroom (but George, perhaps frost the... More

Our first experience in Sri Lanka with the family (daughters 6 and 8) was our stay at Kandy Guest House and it was memorable. George the owner very kindly offered to pick us up in Kandy since his home is 10 minutes away from the city in a very calm area away from the noise and stress from Kandy. When... More

George and Ann are amazing hosts. And their children are so sweet too! You really feel at home here. George is so helpful, he took the time to help us get a jacket made for our wedding, surprised my partner with a birthday cake, and gave us lifts to and from town. Ann is an amazing cook! Wonderful Sri Lankan... More

If you are looking for action: don't go here. However if you like a serene, tranquil place to read a book and to have excellent food: do go here! Whole family is dedicated to give you a good time. We were picked up at the train station by George (the owner) by his own initiative. Room had a private balcony... More

We chose Kandy Guesthouse due to its 4 & 5 stars ratings and the positive reviews we read on TA. Although its location is 20 mins from Kandy by car, we didn't regret staying here for 3 nights. The house is lovely and comfy, the roaring river behind it, and lots of greenery everywhere. As a result, the air is... More

Starting with the bad, the guest house is not in Kandy. Its about 20 minutes outside the city of Kandy. Also to get to is very difficult and our driver who did not know the area could not find it. The owner came down to meet us. At the end of a long day it was extremely tiring. The bathrooms... More
