Note: I'm only just getting around to writing reviews from our fun month trip to Sri Lanka. My husband and I stayed here just over a year ago. The drop-down selection of dates provided by Trip Advisor only goes back 11 months, so I selected February 2013 as the closest date. The hotel was under construction when we arrived, but...

Freedom Lodge good location, very clean and friendly. Nice public areas and room, bathroom large and airy. Nice and quiet after noisy town. I thought food very average and not the greatest quality. Breakfast included in rate and fruit looked like it had been sitting out all night . as favourless and dried out - quite disappointing. I had evening...

Staying with Mr. and Mrs. de Alwis was like staying with locals. It's like staying with a family. Their house is beautiful and very clean. Great food in the evening, and nice breakfast in the morning in the garden. From the top floor there is lake view. It is quiet and that's what we need after noisy Kandy full of...

We stayed Sep 29 for 4 nights. The owners were delightful - friendly, courteous, helpful and kind. We needed a private car for transfer to Dambulla and they arranged the best driver and quality of car we had during our entire trip. The rooms were clean and spacious, though air conditioning would have been nice. The food was good. The...

We've spent 3 nights in Kandy, and have chosen the Freedom Lodge following a recommendation in our Rough Guide. Bottom line - it deserves its recommendations. Clean and comfortable rooms (much better than similarly priced guesthouse in Colombo), very reasonable price, and a very friendly staff. Above-average quality dinners are also offered. The place is walking distance from the city...

We stayed few days in Kandy during the Esala Perahera in August. First night was at the Freedom Lodge, a place strongly recommended by Lonely Planet and to be honest this "Guest House" should even not be mentionned in the guide. Nothing to meet the eulogistic comments of the guide : noisy, dirty shower, hard bed, and a buffet like...

We stayed in Kandy one night and Fredom Lodge has been an excellent choice. The hotel is located in the city centre, just few minutes above the lake. Our room was clean and cozy, and the staff very fiendly and gentle.

Very friendly and welcoming family! The rooms are nice and simple, the breakfasts are good and the family can help you plan your trip! This place feels like home and offers good prices... Dont believe the tuktuk stories about this place, who try to lure you somewhere else where they do get provision!
