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!

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.

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.

Hidden gem”
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 with great decoration ”
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!!
