The host (Thomas) was the most helpful host we ever encountered. He went out of his way to make us comfortable, arranged train tickets and...

The cottage is secluded and perfect to enjoy some peace and quiet away from the city. Thomas was extremely welcoming, and so helpful, armed with a handful of umbrellas to greet us on a rainy day, returning back to the cottage. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast.Would love to visit again!

We got a very warm, friendly welcome and the staff was friendly and helpful throughout. The location of the cottage was perfect - away from the hustle and bustle of the town but close enough to walk to. Definitely recommend this place to a group of friends or a family.

We arrived at Kandy Cottage in the night. Thomas was expecting us and there to greet us, along with his very friendly dogs Cookie and Micky - who my daughter immediately loved! The rooms we stayed in were basic but comfortable and homely. The first night I heard some clattering across the roof. Luckily I had read previous reviews and...

Set in a quiet oasis away from the bustle of town this delightful accommodation is like staying at a friends place. Whilst not having fancy rooms (fan not air con) any shortcomings are massively outweighed by the warm welcome offered by the charming Thomas and Mani. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent, and overall I highly recommend...

Such a lovely place. Tobias is amazing! He helps you wherever he can. On our first night he walked us to the city center and the second day he helps us to get on the right bus. The house is lovely and a short walk near the center. Highly recommended!

A nice and peaceful contrast to the noisey city of Kandy! Close to the forrest yet a short walk to the city. Tobi is an amazing host who makes shure you're spending your time best in Kandy! We had calm nights, great food and a neat and cosy room. We definitely would come again!

Thomas is the guy who runs the cottage and we had a great 3 days with him. He sorted everything for us and could never do enough for his guests. A true experience with nature is a given as well when you stay here in the cottage. Can't recommend highly enough. Thank you again Thomas.
