Basic rooms but clean and well kept. Great views from the restaurant and sitting area. We had checked in for two nights but then changed our plans, the owner was really nice about it and even did our laundry overnight so we could leave early.

Ashan and his family were so friendly and accommodating. We were recommended to eat in some great places (Garden Cafe & Sharon Inn) where neither failed to impress. Great value for money, the view from the balcony is second to none. Ashan also recommended Helgas Folly which is a must for visitors and only 5 mins up the road. You...

We really liked the value for money, as it's inexpensive. The main reason for the five star is the helpful and honest owner and the second reason is the nice terrace with great view, where you can meet other travellers. Good showers and very fast WiFi.

The title says it all, really. :) We stayed for two nights in their most romantic room (at least i was told it was). We had a great view of the Lake and Tooth temple, it was clean and quiet but basic, probably best suited for backpackers. Ashan and his wife were excellent hosts, spoke good English and helped us...

We stayed three nights at the McLeod Inn. The room was clean tidy and had a spectacular view city and Kandy Lake in the distance. The veranda is the best spot in Kandy for sundowners The manager Ashan and his wife are the nicest and most helpful couple you could wish for. Nothing is to much trouble for them. They...

We caught a TukTuk from the train station (R250) to the top of the hill as we had heavy packs by this stage of our trip. The location of this guesthouse makes for a beautiful view overlooking Kandy, especially sitting on the balcony enjoying a beer! The hosts were super friendly and helped organised a day trip for us. The...

I can't say enough about this place. The family that runs the lodge are so welcoming and helpful and sweet. The son is adorable and so well behaved. The rooms are very comfortable and homey. The toilet and wall have almost no space so it's a bit tight, but there is a warm shower and betting over the bed. The...

I stayed here for one night on my way to Ella and then again for one night on my way back to Colombo. As most guidebooks will tell you McLeod Inn is the best value for money that you'll find in Kandy. It is also the best value I have found anywhere in Sri Lanka. I have only been here...

Mcleod Inn was a winner for us. We stayed in one of the front rooms which had large glass panels along one wall offering stunning views of Kandy city. The room was clean and bright and the shower lovely and hot. The owners were great hosts giving a friendly, efficient service making us feel very at home. There is a...
