We had a nice visit to Forest Glen and it suited our needs for the nights we spent there. The rooms were quite basic, the bathrooms very basic with no storage space, a broken toilet seat and poor water pressure on the upper level. But the attentive staff made up for that and the location, close to town but away... More

Great place to stay. Seems in the middle of nowhere, but you quickly realise that this is a special place, with forest vistas only 10 minutes from the centre of town. Access very easy and returning by tuktuk from anywhere in town is no problem. The hostess, Indra is very helpful. We wanted to come to Kandy a day early,... More

Forest Glen is a unique experience; a heritage building with massive if simple rooms, very classy hostess who is an amazing cook, incredible views to the forest yet only a fifteen minute walk into downtown Kandy. It is an island of tranquility in a busy small city. Home-cooked breakfasts and dinner too if you want. The clientele is equally interesting.... More

After a day visiting it was very nice to come back to green and peaceful Forest Glen. The hostess was welcoming and cooked us delicious curries. The rooms are simple but clean. We enjoyed sitting on the terras where free wifi was available. Forest Glen could be a nice place to go back to.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Forest Glen in Kandy. It's a real gem! Located in the hills overlooking Kandy, it's got amazing views. It's right next to a national park and only a short walk to the centre of Kandy. If you don't want to walk up the hill, it's easy to get a tuktuk. Our room was... More

This beautiful hotel is nestled in the forest, absolutely stunning and tranquil surroundings, yet only a ten minute walk from the city. Its an oasis. The rooms are lovely and clean with terrific views, breakfast on the balcony is divine, and to wake to bird calls instead of traffic is bliss. I highly recommend it.
