We (2 adults, 2 children of 4 and 6) stayed at Villa 49 for 2 nights. The location of the hotel is good, with a nice view over the mountains and short walk to the tooth temple and city centre. The public areas of the hotel, incl. rooftop terrace, dining area, small garden, make you feel home. The rooms and...

When you walk into a hotel room and you see a warning not to let stuff outside for the monkey's you know you are in the right place. We had the top room and a great view over the village. Didn't see any monkey's though but that's ok, our stay in Sri Lanka made up for that. Then there was...

Stayed here very recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good location, just 10mins walk into town, nice room with balcony. What really made it great were the helpful owner and staff plus the brilliant home cooked food! Thank you for arranging our drivers and for the lovely meals.

We left a modern, unpersonal hotel i Colombo and didn't quite know what to expect at the Villa 49. But we loved it from the moment we walked in! So charming, only six rooms, and the first thing the lady who runs the place did, was to offer us tea and breakfast! So we got breakfast in the small, but...

Imagine a lovely place, with the loveliest hostess ever. You'll be served a homemade special blend tea upon your arrival. If you can, take the time to know better the hostess for she is a charming lady who will prepare for you an incredible dinner and/or breakfast. Make sure to eat everything though, for she would have made it especially...

They give you quite some space at Villa 49, both in terms of room and service. We had a wonderful room on the first floor, with a small balcony overlooking the hills around Kandy. The room was equipped with everything you need: fridge, ac, good bathroom, wonderful bed, etc. The service was impeccable, with attention to detail and catering to...
