This place was a great surprise! The rooms are big and clean the the bathrooms are very nice and modern. The staff is also very talkative and willing to help. The chef who makes the breakfast does a great job cooking. We were very happy to find a place like this, a true good experience.

City was full due to Esala and prices higher everywhere But we found Forest villa very different from what was advertised in internet. The Place was very dirty, room and toilet. Nice location, out of the crowded city center But our room was very noisy as there was always somebody talking loudly downstairs. I wouldn't Book it again

Rajith, the hotel manager is a cool dude. Always smiling and very helpful. Nimesh, the cook does a top job in the kitchen. The rooms were clean and ours was pretty big. It's a little bit out of the way, perched up on the top of the hill but it is super peaceful up there. We fell asleep each night...

Sewer gas coming up through the drain, 1 sheet on the bed (ask for and got a 2nd), ridiculous large furniture that you did not want to touch, and mothballs in the armoire that were foul. Even at $60 this was a horrible place.

very good, comfortable, clean, for a budget traveler this is an exceptional bed and breakfast, ideal for long walks, close to the city centre, and travel connections to other cities way to go Madani and Team.

Only planned to stay 1 day in Kandy, but liked this place so much we ended up staying 3 days. Rooms were basic, a few grubby marks on the walls but otherwise fine for about US$20-25. Beds super comfy. No problems with mosquitos despite a few holes in the old window frames and no mosquito nets. Shared bathroom was always...
