We had a great time at Bernard's place. The apartment is lovely, quiet at night, very clean, comfy bed, well working shower, equip. kitchen (we only used the fridge) and with a beautiful view from the terrace. Within walking distance to the town center and return (uphil) tuk tuk is only 150LKR. Bernard and his wife and daughter are very welcoming and gave us lots of information about Kandy and area. We enjoyed the super yummy breakfast, which we were unfortunately never able to finish (so many choices), a mix of Western and Sri Lankan dishes, perfect! Furthermore Bernard offered free pick up and drop off in town, and he made sure that we got on the right bus.
We highly recommend to stay with Bernard and his family and we def will be back!
Thank you for your lovely review. You are warmly welcome to come again.
Bernard and Uma
We stay two nights in this guest house and it was great. Bernard and his wife were adorable. My girlfriend was sick and they proposed to bring the breakfast in our room. The food was delicious and the room just so clean!
We had a very pleasant stay in "Great View". It is very well located just outside the centre of Kandy and after a little climb....a great view indeed ! It was just what we were looking for. Bernard and his wife are excellent hosts and provided us with an excellent breakfast as well. We loved our stay and absolutely recommend this house.
Mr Bernard and his family are so warm hearted and helpful on all local needs of ours. He picked us up from a lost tuktuk driver and dropped us off at the bus station for our next destination. Bernard's place is worthy for money, independant small villa perfect for couples. I love the Sri Lankan breakfast under mountain view.
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.
We really enjoyed our 3 nights stay. The location was good for us, being out of town and therefore a little quieter, but with the centre easily reachable.
With a supermarket, laundry service and excellent take away in the neighbourhood, plus with the fantastic Sri Lankan breakfasts, hospitality and tips from the hosts, it all added up to a great stay in Kandy!
Thank you Paul for staying with you.
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!
Es war so toll! Die beiden gaben uns super Tipps für Unternehmungen und kandy, um nicht nur touristisch unterwegs zu sein :) Frühstück super-direkt mit Rezepten und netten Erklärungen. Nur zu empfehlen!
We were so fortunate to have stayed with Bernard and Uma at Great View. The place is great with the most amazing views, the breakfast is delicious every day, but most of all it was a wonderful experience for us as we got to meet these wonderful people and some of their family. Their warmth and generosity is something we will never forget and feel that we now have special friends in Kandy. You could not wish to stay in a better place.
We had the best stay at Bernard and his wifes place in Kandy. They are so nice and helpfull and they are very good people. We only stayed for one night, but we wish that we could have stayed longer. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and it only took 10-15 minuts to walk to the city center.
When we were leaving, Bernard gave us a ride to the station and his wife had made a nice breakfast for us we could eat on the bus.
I can really recommend to stay in this place!
I had the pleasure of renting one of Bernard's apartments in Kandy during June and July of 2010. It is a beautiful, safe space very close to town with all the amenities that one would need. Bernard and his family are delightful people. I spent approximately six weeks with them while doing research in Kandy. I connected with him through my professor who teaches at my university in the US. The apartment was very clean, reasonably priced, and comes with reliable internet. Bernard and family are extremely hospitable and gracious people. I ate the majority of my meals with them in the main house, where Bernard and his wife Sumedha prepared fresh and delicious Sri Lankan curries everyday. Bernard provided me transport when needed and even took colleagues and I touring to some historic sites in Sri Lanka. He even went out of his way to setup a television in my apartment so I could watch the world cup! I cannot say enough good things about my stay with Bernard and his family. I highly recommend this location and staying with a family like this made my time in Sri Lanka very meaningful.
