      Dirty and a good bit out of Kandy”
      We stayed here 2 nights. The location is a good bit out of Kandy. We had an air con room, which actually isn’t necessary. The room has a bad smell and it felt dirty. It could really do with a fresh lick of paint and a good cleaning. There was a door right next to the bed that was locked but went into the staff kitchen where they congregate and chat and you hear every word! Not ideal. The pool is nice however we didn’t have the weather to make use of it.

      superior room view, comfortable bed, friendly staff
      We booked the best room in the guest house and we were not dissapointed. This guesthouse is about 10 min drive to Kandy but the surrounding mountain views were very much worth it. We had amazing views from our room, we were offered breakfast on our balcony area instead of the communal dining area and the food was plentful, wonderful and the stafff always served us with a great smile. This guesthouse is great value for money as its very clean, and in a gorgeous area. The only fault is the water pressure in the shower, we barely had any water so washing our hair was difficult! BUT we managed and this was a minor inconvenience in an otherwise perfect stay in this guesthouse. highly recommend staying here, we loved it!!

      Secluded hotel with good food”
      Food, Price
      Hotel is not near town. Nothing within walking distance. 300 Rs Tuk Tuk from train station and 300 back from Tooth Temple. 700 Rs to the Botanical Gardens. Hotel food was very good quality. Room didn't have A/C, even though I paid for it. Mosquito net & fan. Evenings were cool, I was very comfortable. Plenty of hot water in shower. Wi-Fi was spotty, but had Dialog 3G so not a problem and didn't approach staff about it so not sure what the solution was. My room was secluded around the corner on the same level as the pool. Almost all of the other rooms were upstairs. I had a nice outside sitting area shared with a near by room. Room iteself was very basic. Two twin beds. Only one outlet. Hit my head on the doorway to bathroom a couple of times. Smarts. Staff was very helpful. Owner's son and his wife were running the place. Spoke English well and helped coordinate cars and drivers to town as well as to Sigiria Rock (7000 Rs) and back, as well as a direct drive to CMB Airport (7000 Rs). The do lots of other tours and such. Most of the other travelers were middle aged or older Europeans.

      Nice pool and accommodating staff
      We were a bigger group who were a little rowdy but the hotel staff didn't seem to mind us. Some uptight French ladies complained about us being noisy at the pool around 7pm. Met some cool English and Scottish blokes who made up for it though. Overall great stay for a few days. Staff will help you with anything there such as tours or transportation.

      Very clean pool, accommodating staff, good food
      My cousin and I wished that we had more time to enjoy this hotel. The view, the outdoor dining area, the super clean pool and the wonderful staff made this a pleasant experience. It was very difficult for our driver to find, but once he did, he had no difficulty locating it again. The phone number should be prominent in all sites in order to facilitate finding it. This is not the hotel for someone who has trouble with steps. The wi-fi worked well, which was our only way of communicating with friends and family. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

      I had a wonderful time at this hotel! Waking up to rainforest sounds is an experience I will not forget in a hurry. It is fairly close to a lovely UNESCO World heritage site for hiking through tea plantations and the rainforest. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with mosquito nets around the beds. I suppose there were a couple of small things in the rooms that needed fixing (e.g. the door lock and the shower head holder), but these were very minor things. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was decent.

They helped us to planned our days and everything was not too pricey.

      Quiet, views, walk into Kandy
      Very peaceful place away from the busy city, but within walking distance (20 mins down hill and along a busy road). Chunchie was so friendly and helpful and able to organise transport and maps as required. There were great views over the mountains from the shared terrace outside the rooms and from the dining area . Would recommend the de-luxe rooms on the top floor. Only downside was the green swimming pool, as we had really been looking forward to using it, but were completely put off.

      Staff, Service, Tours
      The guesthouse is located about 20 minutes by foot from the centre. But that's the plus in our opinion. You can hear no noise from the city or any traffic, you just could listen to the nature around. We were welcomed very warmly and the staff was always very attentive and helpful. We were already in contact with the manager of the guesthouse Mr Linton and he organized our pick up and transfer from the airport to the guesthouse which we definitely recommend to have a smooth start into the holidays. We were picked up by our driver Praba who was very nice and very helpful. We had a nice chat with Mr Linton, told him about our travel plans and although we planned our trip already from at home and booked our accommodations in advance Mr Linton listened to us and made suggestions to improve the itinerary and made a great offer for travelling with a driver for the next 6 days. Although we did not initially plan to book a driver we did a day trip with Praba and we then quickly decided to book the trip Mr Linton offered to us. We did not regret it and it was definitely the best choice to have Praba as our driver. He was very nice, calm, decent and helpful. He stopped at the right points for a photo and made great suggestions. I do not even think how exhausting it would be without him in the ruins of Polonnaruwa or Anuradhapura. Praba is a very good driver and we felt very safe in his car. Additionally regarding the guesthouse: the room was nice, the staff was very helpful. There is a nice terrace where we had breakfast, dinner and some refreshing drinks after the days of sightseeing. We can totally recommend Blue Haven guesthouse and tours.

      Price - Swimming Pool - Staff
      Blue Haven is just north of the city. Which makes it quieter and chill. There was a pool, internet (slow), and A/C all good things t. We were on the go the few days in Kandy, traveling to Dambulla and Sigiriya- always coming back to a friendly staff ready to assist in what we needed. Linton the owner is great, very helpful and fast to answer questions by email. He has the best prices for cars at 7500 rupees (60 USD) for day driver or ride to the airport. I thought maybe 60 USD was expensive for the ride from the airport to Kandy, but overheard a few people saying they got a good deal at 80 USD. The ride out was around 3.5 hours, but we stopped at a few places, Madava the driver will want to stop at all these places for you, but if you aren't interested its no worries. We took the train in to Colombo at 6:30 a.m. and arrived at 10 a.m.= 3.5 hour ride on the train for 300 rupees a piece 127 rupees = 1 USD - very cheap for the train - it was easy and beautiful country side to take in.
