Very friendly and accommodating hosts. The location, while a fifteen minute trip out of Kandy, is set in beautiful jungle. I view this as a positive but needs to be borne in mind.

the hotel was in the middle of nowhere and very difficult to find. The map provided had little resemblance to reality. The room had no air-conditioning and only a fan on request. We had two other rooms which came off ours so couldn't lock up our room. Upon returning to the room at night we were locked out and the person answering the mobile number provided refused to open the door. We had to knock on the residence below. The included breakfast consisted of toast and jam, tea and coffee.

The lady who runs the place is lovely and helpful but the location is not ideal. If you want to be near Kandy then do not stay here as it's in the middle of nowhere up a mountain and kandy tuc tuc drivers do not know where it is. Saying that the lady was a great cook, very kind and knowledgeable and gave us lots of good information. If you're happy getting the train out of kandy and walking long distances to get to your hostel then it's fine. If not then stay nearer to kandy lake.
