The proprietor at this property os extremely welcoming and has excellent English. He will collect from the town centre as well which would be very welcomed after a long bus journey (if only we had known!) The first thing he did was warn us of all the scams and advised how much Tuk Tuks should cost etc which was great....

Stayed here for one night. Rooms are clean and comfortable and food is nice. Trip was arranged for us at a reasonably good deal. Not far from the town, about 10mins down the hill, through the shortcut. Lovely views. Would recommend this guest house.

Stephen was very helpful. He arranged a driver to collect us from Colombo airport at 3am, and when we arrived had our room ready for us to check in early at no extra cost. Room was clean and perfectly adequate. Shower wasn't great, a dribble, but it was warm. Breakfast was good.

I thought the rooms were very clean, although basic, and ours had a beautiful view over Kandy. I thought the location was pretty good, although it was a little walk down the hill, via the short-cut to the town centre. Overall I thought it was a nice place to stay. My main gripe was that this was the only place...

We came here for dinner by recommendation of our driver. We are vegetarians. We were not disappointed. The local vegetable dishes we ate were well cooked and each one had its own distinct flavour and texture. Service was attentive. Moderate cost. Good value. We would eat here again.

The room was large, very comfortable and absolutely clean. The balcony was nice and we liked the great view over the whole city of Kandy with its lake. At first the hotel seemed to be a little too far away from the city center but there are shortcuts which the friendly staff will explain you. Therefore it was very quiet.

I love my stay at the Blinkbonnie Guest house. It offers amazing value for money (I paid £19 for a twin room). The room I stayed in had an amazing view over Kandy and although basic it was very comfortable and clean. The owner is also incredibly helpfully and arranged transport for us to get to our next destination. I...
