We stayed here after booking last minute online through a booking site. It was an epic wee slog for the tuk tuk to make it up the hill but walking downhill was easy enough and only took about 20min to town. The owner, a retired Naval Officer, and his family were lovely and most welcoming, We arrived at about half...

Now I will start by clarifying further - we did not stay here...we booked but did not stay. I will also preempt that after seeing another negative review that coped a tirade from the hosts I expect the same...and I'm not surprised. We booked for two nights, in a triple bed room. We followed the more positive reviews and were...

This person, supposed to be a senior contributor to TripAdvisor, should have known to have turned up at the Spica after 1200/noon, which is our earliest booking-in time. She turns up with her daughters just when we had finished serving breakfast about 0930 and when we were also bidding farewell to some Chinese guests. This person had the audacity to...

We stayed in Spica for couple of days (21st & 22nd Dec 2013). As the name suggests, Spica is a nice holiday "home".. the Commander & his wife look after the guests as their own family.. Some of the suggestions about the places to see/eat were invaluable for us! One of the things to be aware of is that Spica...

Tillek is a great host. Their breakfast is fantastic with a variety of fruits and eggs and plenty of toast . It is high up above Kandy with great views. We ate in one night and the food was great. You need your own alcohol. They have a computer to provide free access to the internet plus they also have...

This was the beginning of my 6 week trip to Sri Lanka. What a wonderful warm stay i had at this lovely place. I had a very nice quiet room on the first floor and always was happy to return in the evenings after my full day out sightseeing. All my questions were always answered and the host was always...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights after scouting a number of places for accommodation that would meet our budget. The General and his wife greeted us with a smile and opened their home to us both with brilliant English and keen for a chat. First impressions last and this one was brilliant. A clean, friendly, homely place...

The best thing about this special guest house is the charismatic couple who own it; they run their business with passion and an attentiveness that is yet yo be matched in my travelling experience. They will tend to your every need, no matter how small. I felt as valued as I did welcomed. The house itself is spacious, bright and...

This guesthouse is located in the beautiful hills above Kandy with great views and a peaceful atmosphere. However, it's location can also be a bit of a drag - it takes at least 30mins to walk up to the house and 20mins to walk down. This is a minimum of 150rs each way in a tuk tuk which is something...

My stay here was just average; the location is remote. I didn't mind at all the walk down, but be prepared to get a tuk tuk to return. My room was very average as well. I think I was room 5; it opens to a nice balcony/deck, but right next door is the owner's daughter and 2 very young children,...
