We stayed there for two nights. It was comparable Cheap, But the bathroom was Not nice. An older couple runs this place. A renovation of the bathroom would be great - But for 26€ per night it is fair aß it is.

We came by car which we had rented not in perfect condition, without help from the owners of the place we just would't go any further. Great views,...

great family homestay, the host family are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The Patriarch is a retired Naval Commander and has many a tale to tell. The house is situated in a quiet residential street, above and away from the hustle and bustle (and noise) of Kandy below. Still only a 15 min walk or short tuk tuk...

We had tea together, tasted a real Sri Lankan curry dinner cooked by the host's son, ate passion fruit from the garden and had great conversations with the hosts. The place is situated on a...

The hosts at Spica are amazing - very attentive, speak excellent English and have a few stories to tell. Any information you need, they have it. The location is great - I loved being away from the city but near enough to walk. I always walked into the centre and got a tuk-tuk back for no more than 200 rupees...
