My wife and I stayed 3 nights and this review is taking some thought to write, because for our experience we found there were two aspects to comment upon, so I will split the review. Business point of view: There was no room fridge to cool your drinks or medications if you have any. Simple basic meals took 40 minutes...

We spent 1 night here in April and really enjoyed Charlie's hospitality. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and we ate lunch and dinner in the villa - the chef's Sri Lankan cuisine is excellent. There is a pool in the garden and a pool table upstairs which was a fun way to spend the evening....

We had a comfortable room called "Lavender Fields" overlooking the pool, where we spent our first chilled out afternoon. Charlie the waiter was very professional as well as being a "cheeky chappie" and made meal times fun. From here we visited Temple of The Tooth and the Royal Botanical.

We stayed here after travelling 20 hours to get to Sri Lanka from the UK and couldn't have been happier! Although the restaurant was closed the chef made us food when we arrived. Lovely accommodation, gorgeous decoration and beautifully clean. Highly recommended! Of note for anyone who would love a beer after a long trip there is no license so...

This is the ideal small hotel. You get to know all the guests. Waiter Charlie gets to know you and helps with everything. The food is great for choice. And made when you like. The refurbished house is superb. An architectural work - that works. We would happily return to Clove

Arrived here after a tedious 3.5 hour drive from Colombo and a chilled atmosphere what just what we wanted. We did arrive around 9pm but the staff were keen to accommodate and whipped up a lovely nasi gureng and veg fried rice. The room is gorgeous with a 4 post bed, plenty of space and great en suite. The birds...

This is a charming boutique hotel with excellent service where the staff are helpful and attentive and both the evening meals and breakfasts were tasty and well presented - nothing was too much trouble for Charlie and his staff. When we asked if we could have breakfast by the pool it was arranged immediately. The bedrooms were comfortable and the...

We stayed 2 nights at Clove Villa and can highly recommend it. It's a little bit of a drive from the centre, but don't let that put you off. It's not expensive in a tuk tuk and it is wonderful to be able to escape the noise and pollution of the centre of Kandy. Charlie a great guy who will...

3 friends stayed at Clove villas for 2 nights so we could have a nice base from which to visit Kandy and it's attractions. The room was comfortable and very well appointed, 3 of us had enough space to feel comfortable. The best part about the place by far was Charlie who from arrival to departure, looked after us extremely...

We stayed for one night. Room was well equipped, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and tasty. The lobby is nice and the neighborhood seems safe. Driving there from the center was a bit long, but that was not an issue in our case. Highly recommended.
