The Glen
Ranked #65 of 380 Speciality Lodging in Kandy
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We had a chance to stay here for 2 beautiful nights.
The elderly couple was hosting us their place, preparing great food and giving great advise for sight-seeing in Kandy.

Nice and clean rooms, very nice hosts and homely atmosphere.

Be aware of the tuk-tuk drivers, some of them try to get a comission from other places, when they bring you there.
Stay at your route and get to The Glen,
room-rate will be probably even better, hosts will be great for sure.

If we are around, we will visit back!

Ben and Tina

p.s. Sad to read the previous comment, we can't imagine the couple would force you to be back at 10, our experience was different from that and usually communication is key!

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms, we had a nice double-room with bathroom.

This place is really good. Very kind owners, the room was nice, big and clean with free wifi.
They have also a dinning room. Breakfast is good but you can also bring your food. They don't cook dinner.
Location is also good. We walked to the city. It's not too far.

We were delighted to find this gem of a B and B amidst the hustle and bustle of the rest of this steep street!
The rooms are still impeccably clean with reliable hot water.
The hosts are very helpful and for a charge Camilla was happy to do our laundry in her washing machine for us. A big bonus when travelling for several weeks!
We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when visiting Kandy.
Thank you and may your business continue to thrive.
We hope Poppy Hanna has now opened up in Colombo.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the large room for two, with enough space for our bags.

We stayed here in April for a few days after staying elsewhere in the area. It is a bit hidden away up the hill with lots of new developments and hotels being built nearby but is still a nice cosy retreat.
The owners are lovely, the rooms are beautiful but it is misleading when advertised as they did say they had WiFi....what they didn't say is it is not included in the room price and costs extra. There is a PC for free use in the main area, but it never worked when we were there.

Room Tip: The rooms they do have are lovely

We spent three nights here in May . The Glen is a great place for a relaxing stay , there are three rooms in this Homestay .The price for the rooms is quite reasonable . The rooms are very clean and have attached bathroom . The couple who own the place Carmilla and Deen are just so nice , they go out of their way to make your stay pleasant . Its about a 15 minute walk to town or 150 rupees for a tuk tuk .Breakfast at the Glen is available and good . There is a restaurant just down the road that serves nice food for evening meals . If you want a beer, buy it in town and you can store it in the kitchen fridge. I would stay here again and recommend it as a great place for couples .
If you arrive without a booking and they are full there are a number of other places to stay near by .
