We had a great stay here! The rooms were clean and everything worked just fine. The breakfast was the best we had so far. It was plenty and a mix of Sri Lanka and Western Style and each morning we were able to try a new Sri Lankian dish.
Regarding practical issues, it was a great benefit to be collected from and driven to the train station when we arrived and departed, respectively. We were also able to leave our luggage for one night so that we could do a one day trip to the cultural triangle with light bagpacks.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay of 5 nights and would highly recommend it.
Superb! The whole experience was lovely and they were perfect hosts and both had a good sense of humour. Lovely breakfast, knowledge of the area and advise for our stay.
The rooms were perfect with good views over the hills. clean and very spacious. Ours was an apartment rather than a room so that was a nice surprise.
They also lived in the nicest area of Kandy - their hillside is the Beverly Hills of Kandy, although we didn't see the Sri Lankan equivalent of Arnold Schwarzenegger!
Very nice experience in Bernard and Huma's home. Thank you very much for your advices to visit kandy and the region of temples. A special congratulation for the breakfasts which allow us to know better the sri lanka's gastronomy. Thank you for your smile and your kindness.
The room was very clean. Bernard and his wife was really great hosts. Bernard helped in every question we had. The breakfasts were very tasty. It is really nice place to stay. The place is quiet with great mountain view, but not far from city center.
Definitely recommend this place if you plan to visit Kandy.
Bernard made our time in Kandy one of our best experiences in sri lanka. he and his wife are so friendly people :)
the apartments are located up on a hill with an amazing view, in walking distance from the city centre. Anyway, bernard gave as a lift to town whenever possible. moreover, he provided us with lots of useful tips how to spend the day, where to eat...
the rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable, exactly as shown in the pictures.
a real highlight are the sri lankan breakfasts :) we even got the recipes for the delicious sambol, dhal, pol rothi... thank you so much!
We liked the place so much - we spontaniously stayed one night more than we had planned. we strongly recommend this place!
Bernard and his family are wonderful, wonderful hosts! They went out of their way to help us plan our trip, patiently answering our queries on e-mail and phone before the trip. Once we arrived, they even drove us to see Nuwara Eliya and Sigiriya and arranged a car to drop us back to the airport.
The house is situated on a slight eminence and the view of Kandy city and Nuwara Eliya in the distance is breathtaking! The room is basic but comfortable, and Uma is a great cook. Basic necessities are within walking distance -- laundry service (cheap, fast and reliable), a supermarket (well-stocked and reasonably priced), a restaurant above the supermarket (food not great, but it's edible). There's also a nice bakery right across the street.
All in all, a great place and great people -- highly recommended.
We stayed for 3 nights here - family of 4 (2 children aged 10 & 8) and had a wonderful time in an ideal location. Sadly we didn't get to meet Bernard, but Uma was a perfect host. They had provided us with a large double apartment (2 bathrooms, 2 large double bedrooms with fans, kitchen with fridge and kettle, diner, lounge) so that we could enjoy space as a family, which was brilliant. There is also a large, private terrace/balcony outside, with an excellent view over Kandy and the surrounding hills. The first thing our daughter said as soon as she woke up on the second morning there was "I'm SO excited about breakfast again! Let's go now!" A tremendous, huge Sri Lankan breakfast was served each day by Uma in their beautiful house and nothing was too much trouble. An excellent start to the day, and a good chance to get tips and any questions answered. We found a good value, popular restaurant (5 mins walk away above the supermarket) for the evenings, and there were great shops, too. We used the laundry, tailors, supermarket and bakery. See you next time, Bernard! Thank you both for a memorable part of our Sri Lankan tour. Good luck!
Fiona and her family with two lovely girls were a pleasure to have with us. They were very cooperative and friendly. When they left the house it was kept so tidy. I loved the friendly and adorable manner of the two girls who seemed very intelligent and well mannered. It was a blessing to host them.
Looking forward to see them again in the future.
