We read the review in Lonely Planet and when we get to Kandy we were straight to this guest house. The rooms are ok, the bathrooms ok as well, I will try to avoid rooms next to the kitchen as the smell is quite upsetting most of the day and the noise in the early morning can disturb a little...

Incredibly spacious room, super clean, well located (10min away from the town), nice hosts. Could improve the breakfast, it was not very exciting : white toasts, jam, eggs. We had dinner twice (1200.- each) at the guest house, tasty except the starter and the desert. I would recommend just eat there once as the second time was exactly the same....

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Kandy. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean, bathroom was basic. There is an overhead fan but no A/C. Mosquito nets are provided. Our first night we were bitten by something in the bed, so would advise bringing sleep sacs, which we used the second night. There were columns of ants...

I really liked it, very basic but clean and the towels smelt of conditioner. I have found all the accommodation that fits this description over priced. But to eat well and drink is relatively cheap. The breakfast here is to die for. The best I have had in Sri Lanka and I am nearly at the end of my trip...

We stayed for three nights and were very comfortable. The room was spacious and spotless and breakfast was served every morning on a gorgeous patio - although you have to keep an eye out for crows and monkeys who want to steal your meal. The Freedom Lodge is a bit hard to find, with no obvious markings on the outside,...

Our room was spacious, elegant, light and clean. We ate two evening meals here, both delicious. The owners were friendly, extremely helpful in all respects. Excellent value for money. I would love to stay here again. I did not book our room directly, and had a problem with the tour company who did the booking. I suggest future travellers deal...

Set up on the hill overlooking Kandy Lake the lodge provided easy access to all areas of the city. Rooms were spacious and clean. We were happy to spend time in our room in between exploring the city and having dinner. All meals at Freedom were superb, particularly breakfast. If you are looking for reasonably priced, comfortable lodging with excellent...

We found this place accidentally after a tip from a local security guard. It's really lovely if a tad pricey. We booked a meal for the evening and discovered it to be the most expensive that we had in Sri Lanka and to be honest, not worth the money. We had far better home meals elsewhere for a third of...

We didn't stay over night (unfortunately) here but had a delicious fresh home cooked meal. We joined the other guests, communal style to dine and, as always this is a fun and informative experience. The owner was very efficient and very friendly and his calm was contagious. The property was beautifully landscaped and was a invite I'm sorry not to...
