“Magnificent stay!!!”
Reviewed 25 February 2017 for a stay in August 2016

My wife and I stayed here during our honeymoon. The guest house is run by the Munasinghe family, who is the friendliest lot you can imagine. We had a wonderful stay, and it was the nicest place we stayed on entire Sri Lanka. The family is very helpful, the room and the home made breakfast were excellent. The place is very clean and nice green surroundings.

Would recommend the pick up service when arriving, as it might be a bit difficult to find the first time. We also rented the van and Mr Munasinghe is a careful and considerate driver. Mrs Munasinghe even arranged our next place to stay in Sigirya. They all speak very good English.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 16 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This is the best hotel we have stayed so far I dont even know where to start. Dhanushri and her family are a warm and welcome familie. I called Dhanushri that we would have an early check in and that wasnt a problem. When we arrived my girlfriend was really sick and she got some special herb tea. We arrived in the room and I can officialy say I wish my house was so clean. I have really not 1 remark about it. The room is spacious a Nice shower with hot water some new soap and a very good fan. There is also a kitchen available to do everything you need. When you walk out of the gate to the rivier it takes like 2 minutes and it is just a beautifull view. The breakfast you get is amazing and everything you want and really enough. Ask for a tour threw their herb garden they Will explain everything and it is really nice and informative.

“Lovely place with great hospitality!!!”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Upfront our arrival we were in touch and Dhanushri arranged both transport for our bikes the last miles up to Kandy as our train tickets to Nuwaru Eliya. She and her family are a very warm and welcoming host and you feel at home right away.
Nice clean rooms and bathroom, self serving kitchen, laundry machine but what we remember most are the nice discussions on a wide variety of topics, all the information we received on where to go and what to do in Kandy.
I can recommend this place wholeheartedly!

“Our Best stay in Sri Lanka”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was our first stop is Sri Lanka and our host was so helpful with speedy & informative replies to all our questions, as we made our booking. We received a wonderful welcome and free pick up from the train station. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and fresh. The local breakfast was scrumptious and the downstairs kitchen very handy for a snack or cuppa. We enjoyed walking through the countryside near the guesthouse,and felt very warmly welcomed by the locals. I would love to come back to Kandy and would absolutely want to stay here again.
