This was a fantastic homestay. Rooms excellent - ceiling fans but no aircon. We had one evening meal here - excellent home cooking 20 dollars a head.... Breakfast - again fantastic home cooking. A delightful pool as well.

There isn't much more to say about Baramba that hasn't been said below. The most beautiful grounds, pool and room we had throughout sri lanka. Magnificent view. Short tuk tuk about 200-300LKR into town, but a bit more on return as it can be tricky to explain to the drivers, but easy enough to navigate to by memory or on...

We had the big room which was really huge and also very well designed. Actually the whole property is really beautiful. You could watch the birds and squirrels during breakfast. Kandy itself was very busy and we were happy that we could go back to baramba house. It is located on a hill a bit outside of the actual town...

I don't generally write reviews but Baramba House was simply the best place we stayed in in a month of travelling around Sri Lanka and so I add my compliments to those of all the other reviewers. Fantastic rooms, the best cooking we experienced but for me it was the kindness and friendliness of Barbara and her partner who made...

We stayed 3 nights and could quite easily have stayed longer. All the other reviews say it all. Barbara's cooking is simply outstanding. The house set up is perfect and the small pool a perfect relief to the city heat. We would recommend using Kumar, as your tuctuc driver to ferry you into town and back, especially at night as...

My wife and I have travelled extensively and prefer home stays and boutique B & B's where possible. We chose to stay at Baramba House based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed in fact we were delighted with our choice. Set high in the hills with fantastic views this extremely comfortable B & B is a real gem....

Without doubt, the most stylish place we stayed in during our holiday in Sri Lanka. Fantastic accommodation with views to die for. Delicious food beautifully presented and freshly cooked by Barbara. Loku was very helpful in identifying the trees and plants in the garden and suggesting what to see in Kandy. Far enough out of the madness of Kandy but...

We stayed here for one night on our way out of Kandy. Barbara and her husband were so wonderful and helpful. We had an unexpected issue with hot water due to work being done at the house so they were kind enough to discount the price of the homestay. Their breakfast was quite possibly the best guesthouse breakfast we have...

We stayed at Baramba house for 2 nights in August 2015. We felt very welcome. The house and guestrooms are very tastefully decorated. The place is situated on a hill about 15 minutes drive from the busy city centre of Kandy. The whole setting is great, with a nice well mainted swimming pool. Barbara, the host makes a GREAT breakfast,...

During this years Sri Lanka trip we stayed four nights at Barbara's Baramba house. The place is slightly difficult to find, so I recommend a driver that knows the place already. The room we had must have been the biggest...it was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed has no mosquito net but the windows do a good job of keeping...
