So charming, only six rooms, and the first thing the lady who runs the place did, was to offer us tea and breakfast! So we got breakfast in the small, but...

Imagine a lovely place, with the loveliest hostess ever. You'll be served a homemade special blend tea upon your arrival. If you can, take the time to know better the hostess for she is a charming lady who will prepare for you an incredible dinner and/or breakfast. Make sure to eat everything though, for she would have made it especially...

They give you quite some space at Villa 49, both in terms of room and service. We had a wonderful room on the first floor, with a small balcony overlooking the hills around Kandy. The room was equipped with everything you need: fridge, ac, good bathroom, wonderful bed, etc. The service was impeccable, with attention to detail and catering to...

We stayed three nights at the Villa 49. They had also arranged pick-up at the airport in Colombo. Everything worked perfectly, the driver was already waiting for us when we arrived and drove us safely to Kandy. He was very, very friendly, provided information and recommendations, so that we also booked a tour with him the next day, which was...

Only spent one night at Villa 49 but it was highly enjoyable! Very comfortable and clean rooms set among peaceful surrounds. Top notch service from the manager, hard to even find in many 5 star resorts. Highly recommended.

Villa 49 is a delightful place to stay. It is located in a quiet street not far from the lake and within walking distance of the town. The staff are kind, friendly and helpful, and happy to provide advice on anything you might think to ask about the town and the surrounding points of interest. Our room was spacious and...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and had a lovely stay. The staff are welcoming and friendly; especially Asanka who ensured we were happy and comfortable throughout our stay. The room was large with a beautiful view and was spotless. The breakfast was good but the toast was cold before the margarine and jams arrived! They apologised...
