When you arrive here there is no indication what so ever this is a guesthouse. It looks like a normal house in a street. It is about a 15 minute walk from the center of Kandy. Once inside you get a warm welcome and feel at home. Kumari was very responsive on the e-mail when I mailed for information. The...

My adult son and I stayed 4 days in this lovely home right in the centre of Kandy, and it was the perfect place for us. The spotlessly clean rooms upstairs open onto a nice little verandah area where we could sit amongst the pot plants, and we had our meals in the family dining room whose walls are lined...

Friendly and good service by the owner. Very homely too! I love the balcony with its mini alfresco gardens. Love the family photos in the dining room - the dad used to be a temple chief. The home cooked Sri Lankan dinner feels authentic - it is a must try! Breakfast was ordinary with just the usual toast with jam,...

The name does not like: very friendly! Centrally located, affordable clean rooms with hot showers, a great verandah to chill out on (WIFI and 3 Coins), and tasty food are all reasons to enjoy your stay at Maduaglle Friendly Guest House. But, the main reason for staying here is to soak in the warm hospitality provided by the wonderful hosts...

Owner very welcoming and oblidging. Room felt safe & secure behind the main part of the house. Has international wall plug and free wi fi that operates well from your bedroom. Home made meals are made from organic produce. Make sure you try her home made jam with morning breakfast. Lovely family. We would definately recommend for the price paid

This lovely, friendly and family-run guest house is a fantastic base from which to explore Kandy. The location is great, only a short walk from the lake and town centre and easily reached from the station by tuk tuk. The house itself is beautifully decorated, and gives a facinating insight into the history of the family who have lived in...

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely guesthouse. You will be excellently looked after and advised by the wonderful Kumari. The rooms are clean and simple. The breakfast is tasty and Kumari's dinners are certainly worth trying for good Sri Lankan food. You will be warmly welcomed here as it is very laid back and relaxed. Excellent value. Its...

You'd never know it to look at but behind the White exterior there is a lovely family run guesthouse hiding. The owner is amazingly helpful, telling you the best sights, when to go and how to get there. Great home cooked Sri lankan food. Rooms are basic but clean and nice. There is an early wake up call by a...

We recently stayed with Kumari. She was very helpful and friendly and her place was perfect for visiting Kandy and surroundings. So much so that we cancelled our stay in a guesthouse in the hills over Kandy and extended our stay with her. You really can reach everything in Kandy on foot from her place. Don't be put off by...
