We really enjoyed our stay in this friendly guesthouse with beautiful view to the woods and monkeys at the balcony. The owners and the manager were very helpful and made us feel welcome during our short stay. They also organise daytrips for fair prices, and you can get tickets to the famous kandy dance performance, which is definetly worth to...

Our room was cozy with a small bathroom attached and everything was clean. The guest house has a beautiful view and there are many balconies where you can sit, relax and watch the birds and monkeys. It's about 20 min walking from the entrance of the temple of the tooth. Breakfast was delicious and you can always ask Cusum to...

Though only 10 min by tuk tuk from the city centre of Kandy the Green Woods fulfills the imagination which comes with its name: from the balcony you look across to a giant wall of green forest. As I understand the guesthouse is a Mecca for birdies, but even we, without any special interest in birds, enjoyed our stay and...

The guesthouse is in a very nice location between trees, a short walk from the town center (it's nicely quiet there). The common area is very nice, room was pretty basic with a bathroom begging for a facelift. Hot water in the rooms and free wifi included. Cooking is only breakfast, for dinner we were referred to the Bamboo Garden...

If I were just rating the rooms then I would probably have given it an average rating. It is fair to say that they are basic, but clean. Sunil and the location make this in my opinion a very good place to stay. Sunil gives you such a lovely warm welcome and is always on hand if you need him....

We stayed four nights at Greenwoods and came back for a second time when we were passing through Kandy again. It is a very relaxing place set in a forest, yet only a short walk from the Tooth Temple and downtown Kandy. One has the sense of being deep in the Sri Lankan forest. A large troop of Macaca monkeys...

I feel that the place either once used to be nice or has a potential that it never fulfilled. Either way, right now it's a very mediocre guesthouse, in which you wouldn't want to spend more than a night or two. The problem however is not its location (the tuk tuk ride from the station will take longer, but on...

It's 15 minutes walk away from the lake. Over all nice place to sleep, but nothing fancy to talk about it. They didn't serve food that night when I stayed there. The little we talked with the owner he was polite. They arranged tuktuk back to buss station.

We returned to Greenwoods last December, having stayed there for a week for the Esala Perahera in August 1985! It was great to see Nana and as we hit Kandy for the very worst of the unusual December rains we were so glad that we were at this lovely place. Although the rooms are quite small and simple, there is...
