“Lovely place with great hospitality!!!”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Upfront our arrival we were in touch and Dhanushri arranged both transport for our bikes the last miles up to Kandy as our train tickets to Nuwaru Eliya. She and her family are a very warm and welcoming host and you feel at home right away.
Nice clean rooms and bathroom, self serving kitchen, laundry machine but what we remember most are the nice discussions on a wide variety of topics, all the information we received on where to go and what to do in Kandy.
I can recommend this place wholeheartedly!

“Our Best stay in Sri Lanka”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was our first stop is Sri Lanka and our host was so helpful with speedy & informative replies to all our questions, as we made our booking. We received a wonderful welcome and free pick up from the train station. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and fresh. The local breakfast was scrumptious and the downstairs kitchen very handy for a snack or cuppa. We enjoyed walking through the countryside near the guesthouse,and felt very warmly welcomed by the locals. I would love to come back to Kandy and would absolutely want to stay here again.

We really like to stay at the River Valley Residence. Nice clear room, nice people and a nice breakfast. Only is the location a little hard to find.

Dear Malou,

Thank you for leaving us an honest review. It was a pleasure to meet you both during your holiday in Kandy.

Although we are located about 5 km from the city centre, we understand that some drivers who are unfamiliar with the area may have trouble finding the place. We have also received feedback from a few guests saying that they were overcharged by some tuk tuk drivers originating from the city.

In order to minimise the inconvenience, we would like to recommend our guests to get in touch with us in advance to arrange pick ups from the station, etc, or inquire the average tuk tuk rates from us so that they are in a better position to negotiate a ride.

Thank you once again for your valuable feedback. Wish you all the best!

Best regards,
The Management

“Reasonable price,Quality Service and Comfortable Stay.Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I stayed at this family run BnB during my visit to Kandy while on a short holiday in Sri Lanka.The place was very safe and secure as this was my primary concern as a solo traveler.
The hosts were very friendly,helpful and attentive,they spoke in English very well which made it all the more better.My visit to major attractions in Kandy were convenient as transport facilities were provided by the Bn B itself at a reasonable cost.The breakfast provided was extremely delicious with a touch of authentic Sri Lankan taste.The place was very clean and comfortable,felt like home away from home.Surroundings were quiet ,peaceful and relaxing surrounded by abundant greenery,the Mahaweli river is a 3 minute stroll from the accomadation.Hoping to stay here again on my next visit and highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Kandy.
