Very professionally run by a friendly family and staff and a great central location, walkable to anywhere you might want to go in Kandy. The breakfast is amazing. Not often we recommend somewhere unreservedly, but you will be in good hands here.

Booked for 1 night’s stay; excellent budget hotel with small but adequately furnished rooms and bathrooms. The service was great, with helpful information given about the local area, excellent breakfast (the best during our 5 day stay in Sri Lanka!) I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a good budget hotel in the centre of Kandy.

Great location, hotel is clean and rather modern. It is situated in the Kandy centre, but it is quiet inside. Breakfast was amazing, the best I had in Sri Lanka. Staff is nice and helpful. I recommend it!

The manager was very friendly. He gave us a map of the area and information on things to do. The room itself was clean. Complimentary...
