My friend had read so many raving reviews about the food at Freedom Lodge, our mouths were watering long before our tuk-tuk halted in front of the big wooden gates (minus reservations and all). But we were in luck! Not only did they have a room for me but they were also able to rustle up an authentic Sri Lankan...

We arrived at 7pm so having the owner Sarath pick us up from the airport meant we made it to the Freedom Lodge that night instead of having to stay around Colombo. Rs8000, about £40 well spent! This was towards the higher end of our budget but, again, worth it to get a clean room/bathroom and really friendly and helpful...

Sarath and Nalini continue to make this the most welcoming and comfortable place to stay, it's a truly beautiful place. The rooms are spotless with loads of space. Nalinis cooking is delicious. We very much enjoyed watching the twenty/20 cricket on tv with the staff!

We only stayed here one night but we absolutely recommend this place! The room is big and clean, the people are very friendly and the food was very good (though a bit too expensive for Sri Lanka norms).

This place is lovely. We felt very welcome by our hosts who introduced themselves and we were taken to a lovely clean room with a hot shower. The hosts here are very friendly but not pushy in terms of tour etc which for Kandy is a breath of fresh air. We did use their services to take us to the...

We've spend 3 nights in this lovely Lodge and from the first till the last Minute we fellt like at home. The owners are so lovely and the staff perfect. It's located on a Hill 5 minutes by Tuk-Tuk from the (polluted) center. The place is calm,clean and we were happy. Thank you.
