Comfortable family room on top of building. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is excellent with good hopper and eggs. We liked the detail of offering us some food typically eaten for the new year like kookies. Defenite place to come back as they make you feel at home.

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Everything from the check-in, tour arrangements, breakfast, response to queries was excellent. All staff, especially Shanani, are friendly, extremely helpful and ready to help at all turns, courteous and professional. They will go above and beyond any expectation. The rooms are quite big with a balcony, and most importantly - powerful aircons....

We had the top story room for our stay with 2 adults and 2 children. The room was well kitted out with 1 double and 2 single beds, AC, roof area to sit and safe. The room and bathroom possibly not boutique hotel standard if that's what you are after, but absolutely fine. The owners were really lovely and went...

We stayed one night and were very well treated. There owners wanted to give the villa an exclusive feel so there weren't sign boards either at the villa or on the roadside. There were only a few rooms (5 if recall) and the staff made you feel like you were the only ones there. We arrived to be greeted by...

We were given the room located on the top floor with a very large terrace. Very good room with all amenities (including safe and fridge). Breakfast was very good. Good location : 20-minute walk to the Temple of the Tooth and to the city centre. Quiet neighbourhood and friendly people in this guest house. Recommended place in Kandy.

Stayed over night and was very pleasant. The home-cooked dinner was wonderful and hosts very accommodating. Only problem we noted was a lot of traffic noise in our room. but that may have been as we were on the top floor with a wrap-around balcony.

A really warm greeting and super friendly service were the standout features of Villa 49. It's location is a bit out of the way at the end of the lake and 100 metres up a busy narrow winding road. However it is about a 20 minute scenic walk around the lake to Central Kandy which gave us the impression of...

The location of the hotel was convenient, above the lake, although the walk down to the main road from the hotel was not for the faint of heart. There isn't a pedestrian path and traffic can be heavy on the narrow road. The service at the hotel was excellent, every request was met with friendly assistance, including changing our room...
