excellent location and helpful owner
location, owner, food
We came too early and were welcomed and helped with fixing our itinerary. The place is close to the center of Kandy, but very quiet, so you can sleep well. They even fixed good food for us even though it was not ordered in advance. Simple accomodation, clean and really worth the money.

Good location for temple
Room size, location, cleanliness
The room was quite big ( we had a double and one single bed.), clean and opened onto a big roof top balcony which we could use. Although the food was fairly expensive it was good. The room is about 10 minute walk to the Buddha Tooth Temple and you can walk round the side of the temple along the lake into town which takes15-20 mins. The setting was quiet and we had a nice view. There are several restaurants about 5-10 mins walk. It is opposite to one of the places to see local dance and fire walking. The staff were really friendly. We stayed 3 days and would certainly go back.

Nice place, good location
Location, Staff, price
The room was quiet and close enough to walk to town. The room smelt of mildew a little on arrival, but fans cleared that out.

My stay in Kandy
The staff make the hotel and this family run business worked hard to cater to my every need. They gave advice and suggestions, provided good upon demand and even operated as your guides.
Very good indeed. I recommend Kandy to all visitors to Sri Lanka (particularly the train journey from Colombo Fort.) Must sees for me included: Sigarriya, Dambula, tea plantations, the botanical gardens and Millenium elephant sanctuary. The Fair Lee guest house served my needs perfectly. Thank you.

Good place to stay in Kandy
convenient, quiet, and friendly staff
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Fair Lee Guest House. The owner and his family were kind and helpful, and we liked the location, since we could easily walk to the lake and the main part of Kandy. Would recommend if you are looking for a quiet, clean guesthouse in a good location.

Peaceful and good value guest house
Peaceful, good value and close to everything
It was a difficult time for the owners to have guests but they made me feel at home. It is a in a lovely peaceful setting yet only a ten minute stroll and you are at the lakeside and Temple of the Tooth. It is exceptional value and the room is clean and modern even with A/C for a little more. There a few places to eat that are very close and only R150 to the city centre by tuk-tuk.

Tolles Guest House in Kandy
Sauberkeit, tolles Bad, ruhige Lage
Etwas abseits auf einem Hügel oberhalb des Kandy Sees gelegen. Zu Fuß ist der Rundweg zum See über Treppen relativ gut zu erreichen, kurz darauf ist man im Stadtzentrum. Das Zimmer war geräumig und sauber. Das Bad war groß, schön und sauber. Der Besitzer war eher zurückhaltend, sehr nett und höflich. Wegen 5 tägigen, abendlichen Prozessionen war in Kandy selbst die Hölle los. Überall wurden uns sehr aufdringlich Sitzplätze angeboten und generell hatten wir den Eindruck, dass man in Kandy zu der Zeit als westlicher Tourist Freiwild für Abzocker war. Trotzdem ist die Stadt sehenswert. Wir können Das Fairlee Guesthouse guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen.
