Family who runs the place is very nice, ready to help you any time. Rooms are clean. We had a room with no balcony, at first we were sad but in the end I think is much better because of the noise from street.

Sevana Guest House ticked all the boxes on our 2 night stay triple room stay. Clean, close to Kandy centre, nice rooms with all mod cons, top tucker (generous breakfast with home made jams), lounge with widescreen cable TV. Best of all was the friendly, professional, customer service from the lovely (husband and wife) owners, children and staff.

The best of hospitality and accommodation. The rooms are amazingly comfortable and air conditioned a really retreat after a long day of excursions. A small team runs the place the food is fantastic too. So close to everything that you can't imagine. Excellent and very friendly service. The owners are so hospitable and offer you free super breakfast.

Very clean, caring, friendly, centrally located and overall great place to stay. We had a wonderful, relaxing, quiet and safe time there. All the staff (and family) was helpful and friendly.

We went to Kandy last year and searched for a good guesthouse in our travelbook. The location of this guesthouse is very good to discover Kandy. The people are very lovely. Our plan was to stay one night, but we stayed 4 nights, because of the good service and clean and nice rooms. Ravi was our Tuktuk driver and we...

Sevana Guest house was practically our childhood 2nd home. And when they first opened up for business, our family was given a complimentary room. I have spent some nights from time to time and I am a frequent visitor to this nice place. The rooms are in exceptional quality with either A/C or non A/C and also some equipped with...

I arrived here with a friend in the late evening without a booking. We asked if there was a Non AC room available and they had a room with balcony available. Because it we were already busy that day for 15 hours, we were happy to take the room. A little bit above our budget, but we couldn’t be bothered....
