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.

We were there with a four years old child. We all got sick, so they took great care of us and they even have a doctor in the house who brought us some medicines. Thank you for that! We loved observing monkeys in the 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.
