Clove Garden Kandy City

Reviewed 3 November 2016

I cannot recommend this place enough as a place to stay. Two friends and I had an amazing stay at the Clove Garden. The quality of the accommodation and attentiveness of the staff was that of a luxury hotel, but this place has the added advantage of also feeling homely. The rooms are in excellent condition, decorated with flowers. Even the room without A/C was very breezy and comfortable for us. They even welcome you with a piece of cake! :) This venue actually made Kandy for us, more than visiting the sights inside town! For example, we spent a whole morning lounging by the pool, listening to the sounds of the jungle. Shanaka and the rest of the staff were incredibly kind and helpful, going out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable and that we had the information we needed, or recommending things to see - Shanaka even put us in touch with contacts for later on in our trip! Make sure you stay in this place if you can - and more than one night, because it will be hard to leave!

Room Tip: Clove Garden rooms are cosier in the jungle although further from pool. All rooms comfortable and sp...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this guest house for only one night. The place is a little bit out of the center of Kandy but it is worth it as you get some calm and peace in a very beautiful area with a lot of trees. We could use the beautiful swimming pool just for the two of us (we were the only one as this low season period). We could enjoy the pool for the whole afternoon without any problem.
The staff was very friendly and welcoming, checking on us from time to time. The owner also gave us some tips and recommendation for the evening and was very flexible as we had to leave around 7am.

The room was nice and comfortable and the A/C working very well. The bathroom was clean and ok.

The location is about 10' by TukTuk (300/400 LKR not more!) from Kandy railway station and market so it is very not far !
You can buy beers and other alcohol in the supermarket on the way (next to the tunnel) and enjoy it in the garden.

We had freshly homemade pancakes for breakfast with some fruits and very good coffee (which is not the case everywhere in Sri Lanka).

I definitely recommend the place for a nice and quiet stay in Kandy. The price/quality ratio was very good.

Spacious rooms -very neat and basic & friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend if you want a night in kandy that is out of the hustle of the city noises. Short tuktuk trip to the city. The hosts were very helpfull and arranged a driver for us in the next city to help us travel.

We had a wonderful stay at Clove Garden. The rooms were clean and well appointed and the owner and his team did a great job of looking after us. They organised dinner at the hotel for us, which was very welcome especially in our early jet lagged exhaustion so the kids could just fall into bed when they were finished eating.

We enjoyed a few swims in the pool during our two day stay, a great transition to the heat.

Overall a good spot that we highly recommend for families travelling to Kandy.

It was a pleasure staying at Clove Garden for 2 days with my husband. The staff was very courteous, a typical Srilankan trait I suppose and the breakfast was very yummy. Although slightly far from the city center, connectivity was not an issue as we took the rikshaws late in the night as well. Was the highlight of our trip to Kandy!
