We recently stayed for 5 nights at Kandy Cottage and what a find! Situated approximately 10-15mins walk from the busy town centre, the cottage is tucked away within the forest, the location is just excellent to explore Kandy. The rooms are fairly basic but lovely and clean and the cottage has some pleasant communal areas in which to sit and...

We had booked for one night in the moonlit room but were lucky enough to have the entire cottage to ourselves during our stay. The cottage is tucked away from Kandy central; about a 10 minute walk from the lake, spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. Our room was comfortable and spacious. Thomas, the new manager of 2-3 months was helpful...

Kandy Cottage impressed right from the outset as they arranged transport to collect us from our previous accommodation. The cottage is in a really quiet location yet is only about 15 minutes walk from the main road leading into Kandy itself. The cottage is managed by Thomas who is superb. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was...

This is a fantastic little gem in Kandy. It is much more than just a place to sleep- it feels like a Sri Lankan home from home! Toby and Mani are so accommodating and helpful.
