Our first room smelled terribly of damp, so we moved to a better one - same price, which was odd. When we came back a few days later (having left our luggage - very helpful, thanks) after a trip up north, we had a 3rd room - no balcony, no mosquito net, but higher ceiling and newly decorated, but more...

After a dismal experience in Sigiriya, Freedom Lodge was a total relief. Good sized room, bright, spotlessly clean, clean and fresh smelling sheets and towels, lots of hot water (even if the system, like so many others in Sri Lanka, would scare anyone with even a basic understanding of the combined effects of water and electricity!). The room wasn't mossie...

It's a perfect stay for a couple and some comfort. It's very calm and my room had a balcony. In the evening, people gather to the ground floor and discuss altogether, with the owner. there are many american tourists. Price is 4500Rps with breakfast, which is a good value based on location and comfort provided.

We stayed a couple of nights across NYE 2012. The place is clean, decently situated near to the lake, and run by a very friendly and professional guy. The food was good. Actually one of the highlights were the other guests - a nice mix of nations, ages, some with kids - all happy to share New Years Eve with...

Fabulous room and such very friendly family and staff. The penthouse room with balcony and stunning rooms - booked last minute but made to feel like a returning friend - Just wish we could have stayed longer. Would thoroughly recommend

Very welcoming and family very friendly. Large room with comfy bed. Nice outside areas. Good dinner though maybe a bit overpriced. Pio Mendes proved to be the best driver- friendly, knowledgeable, safe, considerate- really couldn't have asked for anything more and thoroughly recommend both Freedom Lodge and Pio.

A gorgeous homestay with the most lovely couple – Sarantha and Nalini. It was like staying in an old family friend’s house. We felt immediately welcomed and made to feel at home. They were full of good tips for the local area – sights to see, tips on getting up north to the Ancient Cities, as well as ‘scams’ to...

This was a lovely place to stay, the owners are friendly and knowledgeable, the rooms well appointed and it was only a short stroll into town. We didn't get to enjoy the family cooked dinner but did have a lovely relaxing breakfast out on the deck.

We would recommend paying the bit extra for the penthouse with private balcony because the views across Kandy are lovely. We sat out there enjoying our short eats from the Bake Shop across the lake and watched the monkeys frolic on the roof tops. A very friendly and welcoming family. A great place to stay whilst in Kandy and very...
