We stayed with George and his family for one night and had a wonderful time. As other guests' comment this is more of a homestay than a guest house, which gives you a wonderful chance to spend quality time with a Sri Lankan family and learn more about the country and culture. The guest house is located 20 minutes away...

We had private balcony room with beautiful view to nature. The room was clean, without A/C, with hot water and free wi-fi.The owner was very helpful (with good english) and his family is very lovely. Breakfast was perfect. We paid 5000 rupies for 1 night with breakfast (2 people). I can recommend this to everyone.

We stayed at kandy guesthouse about a week ago and it was definitely one of our highlights. We stayed in an upstairs room with a balcony over looking the river, and this was a great place to chill out and read, while watching the little squirrels run by! George and his family helped us out with everything we needed, and...

We had a lovely 3 night stay at Kandy Guesthouse. Our flight landed at lunchtime so we arranged a pick up from the airport to take us straight to Kandy. George's (the owner) brother, Ravi, picked us up and also drove us to Sigiriya and back on our third day. We had a room upstairs with a balcony that looks...

Our stay at George's was lovely. We stayed downstairs which was bright and spacious with a brand new bathroom attached. The grounds and garden were beautiful and the sound of the river added to the tranquil atmosphere, not to mention the amazing wildlife that can be seen. The rooms were all lovely but also felt slightly damp when not aired....

Great hospitality and great host. All round great stay. George replied to every query I had promptly and even arranged for a Tuk Tuk to pick me up from the station to make sure I didn't get lost. Lovely family and lovely house. Having a view of the creek at the back really made the stay very tranquil.

Don't be fooled by the hard-to-find location because Kandy Guest House is really a hidden gem in Kandy! We were skeptical at first as our driver got lost and couldn't find the place but after putting in a phone call to George (who gave more detailed instruction), we arrived to an hidden oasis complete with a balcony, garden and a...

George and his wife are great hosts, helpful, well organized and supportive. Their house is a quiet getaway from the ancient capital, located in a busy and pretty rural area which gives you a feel for the "real" country. Rooms are spacious and tidy, with excellent home cooking. It's also a base for various excursions and right around the Royal...

George totally deserves his great TripAdvisor reviews. He works incredibly hard to ensure you have a wonderful stay. The location of Kandy Guesthouse is perfect, overlooking the river (all the rooms have balconies or terraces), away from hustle and bustle. Our room was immaculate with a comfy bed and a water heater for a hot shower (not a standard feature...
