Kandy is a busy city. So staying in a quiet and nice place like Forest Glen is really great! It is only 10 minutes walking to the city or 5 minutes by tuk-tuk. Indra is a lovely person who gives a warm welcome and serves lovely breakfasts. Nice rooms, nice balcony, ... Only positive comments for this great guesthouse!

Stayed here for one night. Close to town. The guesthouse owner, Indira, was very helpful. She arranged early breakfast so I could catch bus and got me an early tuk tuk. Educated in Australia so had lots to talk about in common.

The rooms are nice and clean amd the breakfast was lovely. The place is a bit outside of the center what is nice at night as you are away from the traffic but on the other hand you have to be aware of the 10min extra walk (or Tuktuk).

I went with my family to the forest glen guest house. The place when you stay in kandy is ideal because it's outside of the city center, but close enough to go to the main points with a tuk tuk, or even by foot. The guest house is in a small forest and you're not disturbed by the pollution of...

We spent 3 nights with a toddler. This was recommended to us, but our experience was rather disappointing. The rooms are clean and well sized, but bathrooms could do with some repairs/renovation. The location is outside the city at the border of a forest, so it is quiet with lots of monkeys and birds. Hot water and Wifi works fine,...

My wife and I were looking to find a quiet place, but not too far from the town centre. Forest Glen was the perfect place! Located close by the entrance of Udawatekelle sanctuary but only a ten to fifteen minute walk to town. Our room was large, comfortable and overlooked'll ed the sanctuary. Mornings and evenings spent on the balcony...
