I was starting to wonder where my driver was taking me, as the road gradually deteriorated and headed back down hill. However, at the end of the road was the gem that is The Change Guest House. This is a small hotel but it has real character and the staff are very friendly, providing excellent service. With a small swimming...

Anura (the owner's) heart and soul project after travelling and working in hospitality around the world. Anura designed this wonderful hill side property which is so incredibly welcoming as soon as you step off your tuk tuk and clasp your eyes into the interior. Beautiful, clean, high ceiling en suite rooms with own balcony looking over Kandy valley. A nice...

This guesthouse is well located on the high of Kandy, outside city noise and turmoil. We loved the rooms and the hotel open to the air with nice pool. The decoration is original and personnel very welcoming. The boss of the place is also very present and wants to make your stay memorable. The food in the evening was delicious....

We had a good stay at The Change. Takes some time to get here by tuktuk (500rps), but you'll get a reward: the view. Dining room is bright and spacious, room was alike, with a balcony and a clean bathroom. Internet is slow, don't come here counting on Skyping your relatives. Meals are okay, not bad but fairly overpriced.

You arrive in an old colonial style building, which is "the change". It's a very nice, hidden place in the hills of Kandy with a magnificent view and a swimming pool. You get a very warm welcome from hotel owner and Sisil Peiris. Beautiful and very calm place!! You must stay here when you come to Kandy!!

Lovely hotel situated in the most beautiful scenery in the hills. Lovely staff and friendly atmosphere. Beds are so comfortable one day we slept till 11:45am, so make sure you set up an alarm if you really have to get up early, otherwise you will sleep so long, as the place is very relaxing. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting...

The manager and the cook are very nice. They offered us free fresh juices. The hotel offers a very nice view on the mountains around Kandy. We had a great time at the swimming pool.
