Our stay was OK, but we did not find the rooms clean enough, and the swimming pool did not look welcoming at all! We did not have dinner there but the breakfast was very poor compared to our other hotels in Sri Lanka. Staff was OK

The pictures for the guest rooms must be really outdated. We booked 2 different rooms, one on the 2nd floor and one on the ground floor. They were both the most disgusting rooms we have stayed at in a long time! The room is filled with mildew that when you walk in, the odor hits you right away. I couldn't...

Lovely guesthouse, basic rooms, and beautiful views. The guest house is slightly out of the town centre and is a leisurely walk into town (however I would not walk back in the dark - one of the downfalls but a tuk tuk is cheap back up so not a big problem), and as it out of time it is so...

We stayed at Blue Haven for 3 nights, it is excellent value and has a lovely view. The rooms are basic but clean. The food is really delicious and remarkably low priced, each meal seems to be individually cooked, it takes a while to come but is worth the wait! The staff are delightful and very helpful. We highly recommend...

This was really about great value for our money. The Blue Haven guest house is about a 10 minute tuk tuk ride from the center of Kandy. It wasn't an ideal location for what we were looking for, as we wanted to walk around downtown more, but it was still fine. Great view of the hills and the jungle. The...

The staff at blue haven guest house were lovely and genuine. The rooms are basic but nice and the mosquito nets were an added bonus! I really enjoyed the breakfast as they varied each morning - I always went for the Sri Lankan option!

Blue Haven Guest house is well maintained and provides good facilities for the price. The location is far enough out of the town to provide picturesque views yet close enough to travel to Kandy for some sight seeing. Where this guest house stands out the most is the service. As mentioned by other reviewers, Blue Haven Tours and the owner,...

We met Mr Linton at Columbo railway station, and I am so thankful that we did. The first thing Mr Linton did was make reference to a 2009 lonely plant book where his tours had been mentioned, he also showed us his comments on trip advisor. These are two sources I swear by when travelling so I had time for...

I stayed there in october for 2 nights. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and big enough. The best part is that for the good price you get a swimming pool which is really nice after a long walking day. So, I really recommend this guest house. I needed a car with driver so the...

I found Blue Haven Tours on the web through an Internet search but they were easily the most professional of all the companies I contacted for a quote for a 5 day tour. Pradeep who is the office manager was prompt in his responses, always clear, sorted out a small error he had made with the price in a very...
