The other glowing reviews are no accident, this is a great place to stay when visiting Kandy and the surrounding area. The cottage itself is a short distance up the hill from Kandy (an easy walk down in the daytime and a short Tuk-Tuk ride back up) in a lovely setting in its own grounds. Accomodation is relatively basic but...

Sorry. This is a delayed review. I and my boyfriend stayed for 3 nights in March. We enjoyed the cozy room and everything around it. Tobi and Andrea were so nice helping arrange everything even for my trip going forwards to other places. The food were terrific and they really care how it's prepared for different guests and make them...

We stayed for 3 nights (4,5 and 6 March 2012) and loved it. Tobi was a mine of information and he and his colleagues could not have done more to make us feel welcome. The service and food was tip top. The location is very good as well as so close to town yet up in the hills in another...

We stayed for 3 nights. Staff were attentive and friendly. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, also organizing trips and taxis. Kandy was approx. 5min drive away. But transport -tuk tuks- were ready available and cheap. Room was adequate but the house is small and we were aware of noise from our children and...

I stayed for only 2 nights at Kandy Cottage before exploring the rest of Sri Lanka. I wish I had booked for more! I have never had such a positive and welcoming at a guesthouse in my life! The property was amazing and the managers kind and extremely helpful (Thanks again Tobi). Kandy Cottage is conveniently located right above Kandy...

Kandy Cottage is a real find. The people, the atmosphere, the location are just right. This is Sri Lanka the way it used to be and what people love best about the country. Toby and his team are delightful and their enthusiasm for sharing genuine Sri Lankan food, culture, history and wildlife with their guests is infectious. The location is...

My wife and I were in Sri Lanka for Christmas week 2011. Our trip was last minute and Tobi at Kandy Cottage worked with me in the weeks before our trip to get us into Kandy Cottage for the nights we needed. We were coming from Dambulla where our online reservation was unable to be honored by the hotel and...

Let's get the negative out of the way first. We stayed at the Moonlit Space, which admittedly was not the romantic room it promised to be, and the cottage was also not necessarily in a "wooded area" but more into a crevice carved into the hill surrounded by trees. There were loads od bugs in the bathrooms as a result...
