Wonderful, helpful, friendly owner who was so thoughtful and caring. Ensured we had a great time at her place and in Kandy. The staff was very courteous and personable. The room was beautiful (we had the top floor) with excellent air conditioning (very hot there). Great location close to the lake but far enough where you don't here the noise....

My husband and i stayed at Villa 49 in March 2016 and loved it. It is located at the end of lake from which you could walk to local restaurants, hotel and into town to the attractions. Or it is a short 2-300 reupee ride in a tuk tuk. The villa itself is over 3 or 4 levels on the...

This is a great little hotel in the b&b style with a nice breakfast in the dining room opening onto a small garden. The hotel is good value and the rooms are good size with small ensuite. It may be difficult to find as it is up the driveway for number 47. Close to the lake and centre of Kandy.

Great spot at the top of the lake, about 15 minutes walk from the centre. Shanani, the hostess, was excellent in every way including organising our trip to Sigiriya and pick-up from the airport. Room was comfortable and spacious, with good air con, hot water, TV and fridge. Excellent home-cooked curry on first night - highly recommended.

A clean place with good size rooms. Nice host who served and excellent breakfast with variation. Speedy wi-fi and help with tuktuks. We had the room with the giant balcony where the views were amazing. The location is perfect slightly separated from downtown buzz and lakeside traffic.

The seven days we stayed in villa 49 were great, especially the personal attention of Mrs. Shanani and her staff. Always a friendly chat at breakfast and when we came back to the hotel. This is the added value compared to a hotel. They serve a lovely breakfast with special homemade jams and snacks, such as pancakes. Highly recommended, good...

A wonderful little guesthouse with even more wonderful views - ask for the room on the top floor and have your breakfast overlooking the city! Stairs well worth the climb! Hostess extremely friendly, helpful and anxious to please....our second visit and not the last! Food great and try the homemade jams!

We had a nice big room which was nicely decorated. Shanai the owner was very friendly and her staff are very helpful. We had a lovely dinner listening to 50 style retro tunes in the back ground which was a really nice touch. We walked into town along the lake, which is a short walk down from Villa 49. We...
