36 Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #30 of 465 Kandy B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 August 2017

Very friendly and helpful owner/host, very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, cozy living area and room. Going down to the city is a 10-15 minutes stroll down and a bit more exhausting uphill.
Great view from the public living room and balcony. We booked half boards and both breakfast and dinner was delicious. The only disadvantage is that we were required to pay cash, credit card would be more convenient.
All in all I can definitely recommend and will come again next time in Kandy!

A place like home, comfortable and clean, very welcomed host and provided very yummy dinner and breakfast as well. We can try the Sri Lankan food. Our room could see the dawn also. The location is high enough to see the centre of Kandy. This is the best place to stay overview all hotels or resorts which in our trip, high recommend to choose 36 bed and breakfast if you stay in Kandy, I will choose again if I go to there again, stay there at least couple of days.

The three story house has amazing views and is very clean and spacious. The manager was exceptionally friendly and helpful and served very tasty breakfasts. He was also very accommodating in terms of fitting in with our schedule. Lovely stay ... highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms were mostly quiet except for the one evening when there was noise from some surrounding hotels...

We stayed for two nights at this place.
It was very nice, you've good a nice view over the city from the balcony.
Room was clean and comfty.
You felt more like guests to the family of the "hotel manager" than being in a unpersonal hotel. He was very helpful even when we took over his kitchen for making dinner.
A good place to stay in Kandy.
Should we come back to Kandy we know where to stay.

i stayed here for 2 nights after a long haul flight from the US. i couldn't have picked a better place to relax and beat the jet lag. Mahinda was such a gracious host and helped us with anything we needed. it is about a 15 minute walk into town and lovely to be away from the hustle and bustle.

we stayed in room #1 and the views were incredible. the bed was super comfy and the place was spotless clean. breakfast was substantial and perfect for beginning the day. internet was reliable.

Mahinda's friend Sunil showed us around for a day via tuk tuk and i would highly recommend you do the same as it was one of my favorite parts of my 2 weeks in sri lanka. if i find myself in kandy again, and i hope i do, i would stay here without a doubt.

Room Tip: room #1 had a fantastic 180 degree view of the city below and hills beyond

The homestay is very nice, clean and comfortable. It sits up in the "mountain" over looking the town and the lake. It is walkable to and from the town (a tiny incline FYI) about a 15 minute walk or a very short inexpensive tuk tuk ride. The room is very spacious, has an amazing view and was very comfortable. Our room had air con. The hosts are beyond friendly and are always there to greet you when you come back to the house. Mahinda is a very nice kind man at the house. The wife, I forget her name is a doll who cooks up very delicious breakfasts. Mahinda got us a personal tuk tuk driver for the day, his name is Sunil. I highly recommend getting Sunil to take you are where ever you want to go. He took us to an elephant orphanage, to a spice garden to an amazing local lunch at a spot called Hotel Siyan's to name a few. Mahinda got us the tuk tuk driver for the day for only 2000 rupees.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

access to this 03 Room Homestay is a little difficult, if you do not have your own transport, however the overall experience of our stay was great
Felt we were home with Mahinda , his wife & Dinu taking such great care of our morning breakfasts, ensuring the rooms are tidy and also volunteering to bring us dinner from a restaurant close by.....they were just perfect and also the only reason for us to rate it a full 5 star
