This was a relaxing homestay. Couple things to note however is that there is an implied curfew that the owner will let you know about. Also, there's no hot water with the showers. Other than that the owner and his family were very kind, and my room was quite comfortable.

We stayed here only one night during the Perahela (July-August) in a private room. A nice, clean place with friendly hosts. Not the place to stay if you want a great atmosphere with loads of other travellers, but a good, safe, quiet spot within easy walking distance of the city centre. Take a walk around the lake in the evening. Nice for couples.

Had a lovely stay here as I stopped by in Kandy for one night. Was difficult to find at first there isn't any obvious sinage and not many tuk tuk drivers seem to know it (I ended up always directing them by asking to go to Hotel Suisse but stopping earlier). The owners are lovely, the room was clean and comfortable. Had a lovely breakfast also.

This guesthouse is wonderful! Only three guest rooms, so do not expect a large number of other people to meet. The staff, a husband and wife, are absolutely wonderful and welcoming, and we suggest the breakfast in the morning (comes at a fee). Everything super clean and good location near the lake and walkable to the the train / bus (or tuktuk for LKR 200). Cheers!

A great little home stay just off Kandy's central lake. Hosts are incredibly friendly and very accommodating. Really good value for money and an awesome base for a chilled few days in Kandy.

We had a lovely time at 26D, it's a very peaceful place, the room is very comfortable and has a fan, ac isn't needed as it cools down a lot in kandy at night. Only thing I would say is that you can't let yourself in and out so can feel like you are disrupting the family getting them to let you out. However this means that it does feel very secure! Only place in Sri Lanka so far with consistent hot showers. Would recommend and stay again!

My friend and I stayed one night in this small guesthouse, well located in Kandy. The owner was friendly and helpful and clearly took good care of his property​. The private bathroom was clean with a hot shower and the bedroom was comfortable, equipped with fan and mosquito net although the bed itself was very loud whenever one of us turned in the night. Would recommend to those wanting to explore Kandy.

The room and the whole house was very nice, clean and well kept! People were super friendly and helpful. The only minus is that you can not come and go freely as someone needs to open the gate for you every time and in the evening you must be back around 10-10:30pm. Everything in Kandy closes pretty early, so this is not much of a problem though.

Slept for one night only as a stopover location. Mosquito nets and clean bedroom/bathroom. Reasonably priced breakfast and the host seemed nice. Very close to the Lake and the Temple.0

Really nice room with fan and mozsquito net. 10/15 minute easy walk to town centre - around 200 for tuk tuk from the bus/train station. Nice breakfast but pricey (495). Entry and exit could do with some change, bit annoying/burdening having to get them to let you in and out.
