We were a little anxious coming into our first homestay hotel with our 5yr old daughter at the beginning of our trip, but Sarath and his family were brilliant hosts, making us feel very welcome right from the first phone call through a 5-night-stay! To get to our room, we quite literally had to walk through their living room and...

We rang on our train journey and were quoted 20,000 rupees, however when we arrived we were were given the choice of the 2 most expensive rooms (30,000 rupees and 25,000 rupees) - these were the Penthouse suite and another large room. When we looked at the room we were ecstatic - even though we were travelling on a budget...

Sarath is an absolute gentleman and a magnificent host. We booked the penthouse suite and had a lovely night time view of the temple of the tooth from our private balcony. Would heartily recommend the freedom lodge.

Freedom is a comfortable stay with a very lovely family willing to assist with any request. The room aren't flashy but really comfortable. The breakfasts are great. The location is good and would recommend staying here while in Kandy. I would not give Kandy more than 1-2 days stay - much nicer places in Sri Lanka!!

The host family was very nice and helpful. The food we got (rice & curry) was very good, although the most expensive we had in 3 weeks. We did not book in advance and still got a good room on the 1st floor. It was clean and more or less well maintained. It was very nice that it was not...

So, we expected a lot when reading all the reviews (especially the LP gives good reviews). As we didn't book ahead, we got a small room next to the actual lodge. And here we go. The room was small and dark. The bathroom was very small and smelly. The bed is average, and there are a lot of mosquito's. Luckily,...

I have been travelling for more than twenty years and have stayed at numerous lodgings. So, I tend to keep an open mind as I realise that there can be hiccups. But, my experience at this lodge surpassed some simple hiccups! When I first arrived, I was offered dinner...but I was quite surprised to hear the price of Rs1000 for...

First of all let me say that we fully enjoyed our two night stay at Freedom Lodge. However, it didn't get off to the greatest of starts. Firstly, having booked an airport pickup with the hotel we were left waiting at Colombo airport on our arrival from London, and ended up having to get our own cab to Kandy. It...

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of March on advice of our guide book which recommended a basic but clean place to rest your head whilst in Kandy. As the below review there is much construction work currently taking place but after having a conversation with a local restauranteur we took this in our stride as the...
