Where to stay in Peradeniya

Since most people visit Peradeniya on a day trip from Kandy, the suburb itself offers a limited choice of accommodations. Most of the lodging options lie along the highway that passes by the town, connecting Kandy with Colombo, but you also can find several inns and guesthouses near the university, in the botanical garden area, and in the surrounding verdant hills. Most of the choices suit budget travelers, while offering all the basic amenities for a comfortable stay.
