  The wonderful view
by mafi_moya

Perhaps the best value for money place I've stayed at in Sri Lanka. Rooms cost about 600 rupees (6 dollars) per night, including a delicious breakfast. The staff are very friendly, they can arrange a pick up from the train station if you phone ahead, there are usually other tourists to meet, and the rooms are spotlessly clean and comfy with private hot-water bathrooms.

Best of all though is the stunning view - probably the best in Kandy (even better than the top end hotels). The two front rooms (there are only about 8 in total) have full length windows so you can wake up in bed and look straight out over Kandy Lake. You'll need to book ahead for these though - if you miss out there's a balcony to sit on. Great for a book and a beer watching the sunset.

Address: Rajaphilla Mawatha, south side of the lake
Theme: Bed and Breakfast
