I fell extremely sick whilst my stay at this hotel, NOT FROM THIS HOTEL. The manager looked after me as if I was one of his own children checking my temperature and genuinely caring about me. We had only booked to stay there for 1 night however we had to push it to 3 nights as I was too sick...

A beautiful villa with nicely decorated rooms. All done by the owner himself, and the result is top. Good bathroom with a hot shower and you have great views from your balcony. The usual breakfast (toast with marmalade and omelet) but made with care and accompanied by a freshly made smoothie. Dinner was also good. Very friendly and hospitable staff....

The ride into The Change was rough and bumpy but we were immediately greeted by a sincere and warm manager that made us feel right at home. We had dinner of rice and curry which was really delicious! It's been a couple of days after my stay at The Change and I'm so missing the place!

The guesthouse is on the hills overlooking Kandy. The inside and decoration is very nice. The view on the city is stunning in the morning. Nice pool if you're travelling with kids. We stayed in one of the family room, which is was impeccably clean, though a bit spartan. Food in the evening was great, and staff was extremely friendly....

Located outskirts of Kandy city and it is difficult to reach as the road conditions are not the best. Hotel is in a nice place and views are great. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful.
