5 minutes walk away from kandy's main attractions and most important from kandy's noise, this hotel is next to the jungle! The food is really good, the lady that owns it is nice and speaks perfect English. Rooms are ok for budget travelers,

I am writing this review as I feel I must commend Indra for her hospitality. She looked after us very well during our two days in Kandy. We then left to continue our travels knowing we have to be back a few days later for an event and she let us keep our luggage in her home. On our way...

Situated within a beautiful rain forest, but still very close to downtown Kandy (15 min walk), this friendly house is really great and highly recommendable! The jungle sound during the night is just amazing!

If you are looking for a calm and friendly place in Kandy, Forest Glen is the right choice for you! We planned to stay only for one night but finally we stayed much longer. The breakfast was delicious and we were given all information we needed during our trip.

It was only by chance that I ended up here. It was the ideal place for me to have time out. The rooms are basic but very clean. Indira and her family are so lovely. They really cared for me in so many ways. It was incredible to have monkeys outside and sometimes on my window sill. Such a wonderful...

I stayed in this family owned guesthouse in transit after a retreat in the mountains of Kandy. The location is superb : still in the middle of nature an yet very close to the city center (an ideal switch from silent retreat to the lively city). The lady of the house is very helpful : she adapted to our wishes...

It was a very pleasant stay in this gesthouse with perfect location (it is in the forest but only 10 minutes walk from the city) . The owner is very nice and helpful. Homecooking here is excellent - try vegetarian rice and curry and herbal tea :)

Definitely my favourite guesthouse in Sri Lanka so far. The rooms are spacious and very clean, the commons are beautiful and make one feel at home (or rather, at grandma's). The verandah is perfect to relax and enjoy the sight and sounds of the forest.

It was nice to stay in this well-maintained family home. The location is too good - amid dense jungle and still just one kilometer away from the heart of the city. The food was very good too. The owner willingly served us the food we requested for. Rooms are basic but comfortable.
