We stayed at the Freedom Lodge for 2 nights. We had a room on the ground floor, which was satisfying. Also the bathroom was nice, with hot water. We got a nice, family vibe from this place, since you all eat at the same table with the other guests. The breakfast was excellent, you can help yourself to a small...

Thanks Sarath and Nalini for a wonderful stay! You were very friendly, hospitable and helpful, the penthouse suite was big and had a nice view from the balcony. Even though it rained for 3 days straight we still enjoyed our stay in Kandy and would happily recommend the freedom lodge to anyone. Make sure you have one of Nalini's home...

My girlfriend and I needed a place to stay in Kandy for a few nights whilst seeing the sights and the Freedom Lodge was perfect. We had the super budget ground floor room, but at £20 per night including breakfast we were happy as Kandy itself is a very busy city and this place is just up the hill away...

Guesthouse with real guesthouse atmosphere, hence the owners are around all day. Okay price, but 4500rs for the old room with only a bit warm wather and quite old and dark room should not cost more! We had a cockroach in our bathroom :( The dinner for 1000rs is overpriced and not authentic as if you go down to the...

We stayed here for 2 nights during our trip around Sri Lanka. We had a penthouse room on the top floor which was spacious and had a balcony overlooking the garden. The room itself was of a high standard with a comfortable bed with mosquito nets. The bathroom was quite modern with a good shower and hot water. We had...

Our first room smelled terribly of damp, so we moved to a better one - same price, which was odd. When we came back a few days later (having left our luggage - very helpful, thanks) after a trip up north, we had a 3rd room - no balcony, no mosquito net, but higher ceiling and newly decorated, but more...

After a dismal experience in Sigiriya, Freedom Lodge was a total relief. Good sized room, bright, spotlessly clean, clean and fresh smelling sheets and towels, lots of hot water (even if the system, like so many others in Sri Lanka, would scare anyone with even a basic understanding of the combined effects of water and electricity!). The room wasn't mossie...

It's a perfect stay for a couple and some comfort. It's very calm and my room had a balcony. In the evening, people gather to the ground floor and discuss altogether, with the owner. there are many american tourists. Price is 4500Rps with breakfast, which is a good value based on location and comfort provided.

We stayed a couple of nights across NYE 2012. The place is clean, decently situated near to the lake, and run by a very friendly and professional guy. The food was good. Actually one of the highlights were the other guests - a nice mix of nations, ages, some with kids - all happy to share New Years Eve with...
