nice location, otherwise mediocre”
so the location in park is nice in noisy kandy, though it also means the main sites are less accessible. the family and staff are polite rather than friendly, and you may have to wait a bit for them to show. our room was quite mediocre: no view even though others were available, not entirely clean, not well furnished. breakfast was decent. given the price at the top end of guest houses, not worth it i'm afraid.

nice location, didnt feel at home”
Nice Location, however we didnt feel at home at Forest Glen because of many things. Our room wasnt really clean when we arrived, its very loud inside the house, somehow it was a problem that we arrived at 1 AM after the Perahera finished at 0:30. The Dinner was good but overprised (5000 for 4 Person).

EXCELLENT JUNGLE LODGE ADJACENT TO THE CITY”
Fantastic location adjacent to Udawattakele forest, yet a walk to the city. Quiet and peaceful but in walking distance to the centre of Kandy.

Forest Glen”
Location was excellent but service is minimal. No meal option at night and very basic breakfast. Wifi was deliberately restricted (turned off at night) until I complained. No additional assistance/information offered.

Great stay”
We enjoyed our stay at Forest Glen very much. The location is very peaceful and calm, with many birds and monkeys to watch, however it is still in walking distance to the city. Food is excellent and the owner's very helpful. We could stay as well in their house in Dambulla and we enjoyed it a lot. Away from everything but in a beautiful garden with Mongo trees and a nice gardener, helping whereever help was needed. A nearby Hotel provided dinner in superbe quality. It was a very good experience and we hope to come back one day :).

great location ”
nice location, peaceful surroundings, comfortable room
Forest Glen is in a prefect spot to see Kandy.. nice and close to get into the city quickly .. but also far out enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the jungle location. The buildings and rooms were lovely and the bedroom and terrace views of trees and playing monkeys were great. The staff were helpful but not as super-friendly as elsewhere in Sri Lanka. Saying that, I would stay there again without hesitation so all in all, very good.

Nobody home, nothing worked”
interesting common area
I don't really have anything positive to say about this place. When I arrived the owner was out of town. I was given a key by a neighbor who spoke no English. There was nobody around to help answer questions about the hotel/location/Kandy. The room itself was ok. Very baic, which is fine. The lighting in the room was poor. My toilet wouldn't flush and the shower was cold with poor water pressure. The location is up the hill, only about a 15 minute walk into the city. It's not that quiet though as there are barking dogs in the neighborhood. The view from the location isn't that great either. The neighbor served breakfast in the morning which was nice, as I didn't think I was going to get breakfast considering the owner wasn't around. I wouldn't recommend this place although if the owner is home maybe it's a different story.

Handy for Kandy”
Great location close enough to walk into Kandy but felt out of town. Good location to use as a base to visit places further afield. Very relaxed stay.
Great stay very friendly owner made us feel very at home., and was able to organise a driver for us to take us further afield using Kandy as our base. Great location, felt like we were miles away from Kandy but was just a short walk into town.
