    The staff is very kind and helpful. They are so lovely and smiling! The room was big, lighful and very clean. All amenities available (safe, hairdrier, etc.) The food both for dinner and breakfast is delicious! I definitely recomend this place. I suggest also to hire their professional driver, Mr. Praboda, very cautious and an excellent Englih speaker.

    We adored our stay here: room,tasteful furniture/decoration touch and food made our stay most delightfull!The owner is very helpful and friendly really enjoyed meeting her!The location is also great close to the temple of tooth,you can enjoy a nice evening walk long side the lake up to the temple and back,very romantic!Also the breakfast is great don't miss the tea (best we had in our entire trip) and the home made marmalade! If you like feeling welcomed like in a friends or family house go there-vrey relaxing!Last but not least the roof top is a must...have your diner there!

    1. The staff was cordial and helpful. 2. We had lunch once here. Lunch was very tasty.

    1. The first thing I didn't like (or rather hated) would have to be the shower. There were two hand held shower heads, one for very hot water and another for very cold water. There was no way to get warm water. Probably we could have tried holding both the shower heads together but sadly we didn't have hands big enough for this. 2. Bathrooms were too small. The width of the bathroom was such that we could touch both the walls if we stretched our hands. 3. There is no lift here. 4. I did not like the towels here. They were worn out and brick/reddish colored instead of usual white towels that most hotels have. 5. They have not subscribed to many TV channels. So its not a place to stay if you just want to laze around in the room. 6. I didn't find the bed very comfortable.

    Utmost hospitable and warm - felt at home. The food was also very delicious and lot of specialities. Neat, clean and spacious rooms. Superb views from the 2 balconies. Close to the city centre

    Wifi could be improved. A sign board should be added near the entrance from the main road as well as at the main gate.

    Three night stay. Rooms clean, tastefully furnished, facilities great, mattress and bedding high quality. Host was able to organise tickets to Perahera. Breakfasts were great (sandwiches packed for an early morning train). Ate dinner there first night which was excellent. Walking to Temple and Kandy city no problem.

    - the free pick-up from the station, very convenient after a long train ride with all you luggage - Mrs. Shanani, the owner is very very friendly and will do anything to make you feel comfortable - Shanani works with a very good driver, a relaxed guy who makes sure you end up at the right places at the right time at reasonable rates. Had a very good tour with him and a relaxed transfer to Pollonaruwa - great breakfast, they go on until you're satisfied :-) - very friendly staff in general - Beautifull room with big terrace - you will have a hard job to beat this place in price/quality - if you don't feel good in this place, the reason probably lies within yourself

    - the monkeys having fun on the roof of our room early morning (we had top floor room), but what a way to get woken up instead of our boring PEEP PEEP PEEP PEEP :-), an experience on itself, we had even doubts if this shouldn't be in the like-column :-)

    one male staff was helpful and friendly

    Way too much overpriced for this quality of room and food. The breakfast was just ok. The toast and waffle were very dry. Dinner price was insane. Better dine in the city. There are a lot of choices there. After we had waited there for quite a long time, the guesthouse owner told us that they couldn’t offer us any room before 2 pm. Therefore, we got a room to use the basin for washing our faces and hands. In that room, we saw a rat running from the shower room to bed. In general, the room is pretty OLD and the location is very bad. Although the guesthouse is located on the hill, the air is very bad, even in the early morning, you wouldn’t want to open the window as the air is almost poisonous. There is no comfortable road for pedestrian. Very dangerous and uncomfortable to walk there. Inconvenient location! The TV didn’t work. The mattress is very old and too soft. The most incredible thing was the SUPER WEAK water pressure. It took me almost 45 minutes to finish the shower (usually I only need 10 min. to do it). The Wifi Signal is not good. The towels are dark and very old. They didn’t look clean. The shower curtain was quite short so that the floor became totally wet after shower. No 24 hr front desk. You need to look for someone in house for assistance. There is no front desk. It is not as nice as described on the website! Be aware! Tips: There are many options of guesthouses and hotels in the city where you get even better air and deal!

    If you are looking for your corporate fancy hotel experience, keep looking. On the contrary, Villa 49 is a charming guest house that almost felt like home after 2 days. Our only regret is that we only booked 2 nights! Location is 5 minutes away from the lake, at the same time, it is quiet. Nice clean rooms, with all the amenities you'd need. We were served breakfast on the rooftop with an amazing view. Great home made food and super friendly staff, especially the owner who was warm and welcoming. Not to mention a brilliant cook! We had a home cooked dinner at the villa dining room (ask for it) which was the best meal we had in Sri Lanka. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

    Nothing.

    Very friendly yet humble staff who went out of their way to help us. Pleasant roof top room. Food was simple but tasty. Location was great for exploring Kandy city. Could go to temple of sacred tooth and dance show on foot. Owner also recommended us a reliable driver to take us to other further away sights.

    Basic bathrooms but clean. Wifi unreliable at times but to be expected.
