An old colonial house converted into a guest house in an absolutely beautiful setting. It is set in a peaceful part of Kandy very close to the station and other attractions. Extremely friendly hosts make your stay pleasant and peaceful. The price is very good for such a beautiful location and level of comfort. At night you can see bats the size of eagles and I even was fortunate enough to see wild boars roaming around the garden. The manager provides travel advice and helps to order tuk tuks at reasonable prices. I did the booking through Red Dot Tours and had excellent service from them and the manager of the cottage.
The train ride is absolutely beautiful. Although the train can get very crowded, the people are very friendly and helpful. As the ancient diesel train gradually climbs into the mountainous countryside, cool breezes usher in a wonderful feeling to the traveller, not to be missed.
The scenery is breathtaking. Sit on the right hand side of the train for the best view. Takes about three hours and costs about £4.
Go to Colombo Fort Station and get the train to Kandy.
