Beautiful place ”
This house is very well done, decor is amazing, the pool and garden are absolutely beautiful. Rooms are very nice with good hot showers and AC. Staff and owner are super helpful and the food was excellent. Short drive into Kandy but worth it for this oasis.

An unique designed private villa with pool”
Very good design throughout the whole house. Well located away from the hustle bustle of the Kandy city centre. Love the breakfast session by the pool side. Owner's family and staff are lovely. Definitely recommended to stay at this villa if you are travelling to Kandy!

Gorgeous!”
Urban castle is a beautifully designed guesthouse worthy of a five star boutique hotel. Loved the natural light, open spaces and carefully selected art pieces. The pool is a lovely treat after a hot day of sightseeing. Gaya is very helpful host, and even gave me a ride to Kandy town for a massage. Perfect place for travelers seeking peace and quiet from the busy city.

Excellent hospitality and ambience ”
Prasad and Gaya were the best hosts. They were very welcoming and kind. The place itself is amazing: beautiful garden and pool, lovely outdoor seating areas to catch the sunset/sunrise and read a book. The Sri Lankan meal spread that they prepared for us was worth every penny. Such delicious food! We had a wonderful time at Urban Castle. Thanks for the hospitality.

Gorgeous !!! Love it A to Z”
A pure beauty in the countryside. Modern and decorated with very good taste and antiques, this homestay was a very agreable break in our Sri Lanka roadtrip. Breakfast and dinner though very slow/complicated to be served were absolutely delicious and very tasty. Thumbs up for the cook ! Owner and her family are very caring and will take good care of you.

Beautiful oasis in sweet spot”
We enjoyed our brief stay in this gorgeous hotel. The food and staff were fantastic and accommodating. They will be adding a pool and garden restaurant in a few months and it will surely make the hotel all that much more amazing.

Beautiful Property outside of Kandy”
We stayed at Urban Castle in January. The accomodation is stunning, the decor and styling excellent. We unfortunately had a problem with the owner and our driver which was sorted on our arrival but was an unnecessary situation. As we arrived late they provided us with a beautiful dinner overlooking the pool. Our room was very nice, shower was great. Breakfast was plentiful and very fresh. The staff were lovely and attempted to help us with any requests (there english is minimal). The only downside is the location. Although it is in a lovely quiet suburban street it was very hard to find and was too far out of Kandy for us as we only had one night there. If we had stayed a few days the place would have been perfect as the train was close by. The owner is a very nice Sri Lankan woman with exceptional English and was very accomodating.

Feels like home”
Urban Castle is the most stunning hotel we have stayed in Sri Lanka. We spent a good amount of time just marveling at the well-designed lobby and room filled with art pieces and antiques. The owner is very warm, as well as the resident dog :) It is quite far from the city center but we will come back to Kandy just to stay here again!

Dream House Hotel”
Feeling more like a house than a hotel, I really enjoyed my stay at Urban Castle, wishing only that I had more time to spend there. The house is an attraction in itself, with a design inspired by the great Geoffrey Bawa, and the owners certainly among the coolest people in Sri Lanka. Breakfast and dinner was excellent too. If you are looking for a place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of Sri Lanka, look no further, because this is the place to stay.

The best in Kandy (Dont even look at any other option)”
This is by far the best place we have stayed in Sri Lanka. Prasad and his family are the best host you would be able to get anywhere. The architecture of the place is unique with amazing antiques that he has collected from all over Sri Lanka. Amazing taste in designing the house. looking after all your needs, will help you in every step, you cannot think of any other place to stay. In case you are visiting Kandy and have booked at some other place, please do cancel it and book it here. You wont be disappointed.....VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Wonderful staff”
From the moment we were greeted at the car and shown into this beautiful Guest House we felt at home. Gaya is the perfect host, so very helpful and accomodating. We were so worried that we wouldn't get the train from Kandy to Ella as it was sold out, she checked on the day for us that we could get unreserved tickets and organised a tuk tuk to get us to the station in time. Urban Castle is beautifully decorated, there are lounge areas you can sit in if you wish to. Rooms are sparse but beautifully decorated, Arriving late in the afternoon we chose to have dinner at the guest house, choosing Sri Lankan curries, they were beautifully cooked. Breakfast was lovely with fruit, a choice of eggs and a generous serve of wonderful fresh breads. Upon leaving Gaya reminded us that we had her number and to contact her if we had any problems what so ever on our travels in Sri Lanka, if we needed help or advice.

Absolutely Wonderful!!”
We stayed here for 5 nights after leaving our other hotel 2 days early. They quickly accommodated our change in plans as we were driving to the hotel. Everything about Urban Castle is incredible. The decor, the rooms, the food, the staff, the ambiance, everything! We were there over the New Years holiday so we had some unexpected downtime and we felt like we were at home there. Every detail in design and comfort is attended to. The food is incredible, prepared by a wonderful chef. We ate dinner there almost every night. While it is a bit outside of Kandy we were so happy for the seclusion and peaceful setting. They arranged tuk-tuks for us when we needed them so it was really no problem getting to Kandy and back. We were both very sad to have to leave this little treasure after 5 days. The bedrooms are dreamy! Tip: Take the address of the hotel with you to show to drivers in Kandy. If you are touring Kandy make sure to see the Bontanical Gardens, they are gorgeous!

Hidden gem ”
Everything about Urban Castle was fantastic! - location out of kandy with only a short tuk-tuk ride to get there. Glad we didn't stay in kandy as its a bit hectic so was nice to get back to our little oasis after. - facilities were great, especially the lovely pool. - tasty Sri Lankan food - lovely staff & the owner was very helpful. If you need a driver to your next destination then defiantly use her contact. We had a fun ride to sigirayi, stopping along the way at a few sights. The driver really made the journey. Would defiantly recommend to all.

We loved everything about this place. The location, peacefulness, the room, the owners/staff and the food. When we read the review from previous guests, some thought the location was a bit off. But we really liked that it was a bit far from the buzz and hectic city Kandy. You could easily go there in no time if you missed that. We had an amazing stay and was taken good cared by the friendly staff and the owner who helped us with a lot of things. We would love to come back!

The hotel was very well stylistic mix with modern and historical things. The garden is small and beautiful we have the breakfast and also at night you can have a nice drink and break in the mini bar of the garden. Room was supper big and wash room very big also . Can hear a little train noises . And in the morning can hear kids go to school. The elder couple working in the kitchen were so kind and nice person . The owner has a dog a little shy with people . We stay 2 excellent night there.

Such a cool and welcoming place!”
We stayed here two nights during our visit in Kandy. First I thought it was a little far but then I realized that this is the perfect location for us. Kandy is loud and busy, here we found a wonderful place to rest, with even the possibility to take a local train to the center of Kandy instead of a tuktuk. The place itself is beautiful, the room very spacious and clean with many creative details and nice furnitures. The owner and staff are very welcoming and nice, the food was delicious too. If Urban Castle was a chain with many subsidiaries, I would have stayed with them during our whole Sri Lanka trip. Highly recommend!!
