We spent five nights at this hotel. It is conveniently located to the town centre, the lake and the Temple of the Tooth. While on a busy main road, we occupied a front room and did not find it exceptionally noisy. A cold towel offered on arrival on a very hot day was much welcomed. Throughout our entire stay we...

For the price, the place is nice. Good location near to stuff in Kandy. Really nice staff who helped us plan our excursions A nice homely feel. It's a no frills place (only provided soap in bathroom) Would definitely stay again though.

Hotel staff accommodating and gave good travelling advice as well as organising local tours. The room wasn't fantastic but for the price and quality of the service well recommended for people who visit Kandy for a few days.

My wife and myself enjoyed this hotel as it was nicely located and it easy access to the center of Kandy Town and Daladamaligawa. On the whole, a thoroughly relaxing and trouble free stay. Would definitely recommend!

A basic hotel which was perfect for a one night stay, it was on a busy road but still quite quiet. The room itself was quite warm but not so much that you couldn't sleep. Breakfast was good and the shower was decent. A little walk to the station and the major attractions so perhaps not as central as we...

First of all: the room was clean. Same goes for the bathroom. The staff and owners a very friendly and always willing to help. We didn't eat there, so I can't say anything about the food, but the kitchen looked immaculately clean! The reason for only 3 stars is that we booked and payed for a superior double room, but...

The hotel is run by a family with nice compact rooms. The available space is utilised very well. The location is good too very close to (1km odd...walkable) from kandy centre. If you need to dine at the hotel... Order in advance. However, there are restaurants open till about 830 pm in the evening. The breakfast was good. All in...

We were very impressed with this hotel. The staff were very helpful and the whole hotel had a clean and fresh feel to it. The rooms are basic but perfectly comfortable and clean. Great hot showers were an even bigger bonus!

Great little find in a great location. The rooms are set back from the road so you can't smell the horrible fumes from the cars in Kandy. We had a fan room with no exterior windows. Breakfast was okay. Very kind and helpful staff.
