Beautiful garden, nice hosts

Beautiful garden, nice hosts
The garden was beautiful, the hosts were nice, good breakfast.About 40 mins walks to the train station, 250rb by tutu! It's not safe to walk back to the GH at night! The room rate was too high compared with others, cheaper will be much greater!

Peaceful and comfortable stay

Cleanliness, location, friendly staff
A homestay run by a very friendly elderly couple who speak good English and were always ready to give some pointers or directions around the town. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. It's located on a small hill and very peaceful and quiet. Only suggestion would be that it might be nice to have some sort of common pantry with some coffee/tea, it would be nice to have a hot drink on a cold Kandy night!

Ocean of peace in buisy Kandy

nice garden, very friendly owners, cleanliness
We stayed 3 nights at RTL and really enjoyed our stay. The owner family is very friendly and helpful, rooms and sanitary facilities are big and clean (a Little bit dark). We enjoyed a lot the quiet place at the Veranda, watching the birds bathing in the "bird pools". Bed matresses are comfortable - exceptional for Sri Lanka! Breakfast is good, we enjoyed it very much in the nice garden.

A relaxing pretty location, excellent service.

Location, Expert attention and service, Great information
My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay here. Lovely gardens, comfortable, roomy room, good airconditioner, lovely Rice and Curries. Our hosts were particularly attentive and happy to explain everything about Kandy, and we enjoyed the homely aspect of our stay here. Our host was even happy to take us by car to visit the nearby hospital, for which we are grateful. The Kandy lake is nearby and a lovely walk in the morning is a wonderful way to start your day. Thoroughly recommend.

Comfortable walk to town centre

Friendly helpful but descrete owners
We stayed in Kandy at a very busy time due to the festival which we had not realised. The owner kindly organised tickets for us the following night. The Royal Lodge was far enough away that we didn't get any festival noise nor spoil the pleasure of sitting on the lovely veranda. We enjoyed a very nice Sri Lankan dinner along with plenty tea and sandwiches as required when we skipped dinner one night.

cannot recommend, just a merchant

clean, nice garden. it's all.
i stayed there with my wife, but i disappointed in the service. the hotel is family runned, like homestay. but owner is only interested in commercial spirit. surely it had some advantage : nice garden, n clean room. but too many disadvantage like below : he got twice hotel price caz it is the period of 'perahera festival.' i understood it anyway all the word the owner told us is what related to money. (like that : "buy perehera ticket, buy botanic garden ticket..") and every service fee is so expensive compared with the level of hotel. breakfast is 6 USD per 1 man, airport transfer is surprisinly more 80 USD!! and location is also not good. 30minute on foot from downtown. anyway, i think this hotel makes guest uncomfortable, n definately overpriced.
