We were delighted to arrive after a 7 hour train ride from Ella; we were warmly welcomed with fresh juice and told they were expecting us. Upon arrival we noticed the fenced in, secured perimeter which gave us a sense of security and privacy that was excellent! The house, although a bit difficult to find or to direct local tuk...

We stayed at Manor House just outside Kandy centre for two nights. The site itself has a lovely colonial feel and the furnishings very rustic. The room itself was very clean and a good size although the bed wasn't very comfortable. I was overwhelmed with how friendly and helpful all the staff were, they really made our stay enjoyable so...

Away from the hustle bustle of the Kandy town, this is a "Live Life King Size" place. A carefully renovated/re-crafted statesman bungalow which takes you back in times.

This is an entirely unique experience. We stayed in the tower rooms used in the past by the owners to survey the surrounding Padi fields.

I have stayed at hotels all over the world - in 5 continents, and this is by far the most hospitable place I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The Manor House is about 5km away from the Kandy city center, and is located close to a public bus stop where you can easily reach the city. The...

As in most parts of the world...the people are the best part. The manager and Noel, who served our meals, were engaging and informative. The housekeeper is adorable and fun. The rooms are beautiful and rustic. The one in the front can be a little noisy if the other guests decide to enjoy the front veranda at night. The tower...
