Nothing to recommend, nothing to stay away from. We took the Rough guide recommendations and tried this place. The view from the room was truly amazing and the room was quite clean, mosquito net and fan included. What bothered me was mainly the approach of the manager, who insisted that the restaurant in the place is awesome and they make...

We went here following LE ROUTARD, the view on the lake is nice but the workers aren't. You have plenty of guesthouse in the same area we are advasing you to choose another one. They asked for a early check out. It seemed like they were getting us out as soon as possible. We weren't able to go out after...

Room (left side next to jungle): we have chosen the room with 2 huge glass windows (practically glass wall) - amazing view but entire night I could...

After having difficulty with another property we found Highest View last minute in the Lonely Planet guide. The manager sounded very friendly on the phone and said he had room for 2 nights; there was no aircon but no curfew so we went over and checked in. They were very welcoming and although the rooms were a bit run down...

This guesthouse is basic, with little more than a bed, fan, wardrobe and mosquito net in the rooms; however it is clean and pleasant and the views across Kandy lake from the balcony rooms or the top-floor restaurant are fantastic. For the price (3000 rupees for an ensuite room; 2500 for one with shared bathroom) it's great value in Kandy....

The Highest View is located in a nuce spot and offers great views over Kandy. It's also clean and 3000 Rs seemed appropriate for the room. But the owner is a self-important little man with strict rules that he will let you know at every turn while at the same time smoking inside his hotel the whole day. He gets...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights. We were on holiday and were planning on staying in hotels rather than guesthouses, but were surprised at the costs in Sri Lanka so decided to save a few pounds. We looked around at a couple of other places in the Sarananka Road area, and Highest view seemed the best of...

First, it's not a hotel - it's a very basic guesthouse. This place was highly recommended by my guidebook, so I showed up by tuktuk late in the day. Don't make the same mistake! He showed me a small room, absolutely basic, bed, fan m-net, not even a chair and asked $30. I said it was too expensive, so he...

This is a good transit hotel. It is basic, but clean and the staff helpful. Everything was greying with age, but not dirt. Our sink was broken and they really had no urge to fix it. There was hot water, mosquito net, a great view from the restaurant and they have their own tuk-tuk which is very useful if you...
