Stayed in this guesthouse for two nights. The room was basic, but had everything I needed and was very clean. The rooms don't have a balcony, but the big one next to the central breakfast room is great. I spent a lot of hours there, drinking tea, reading and enjoying the amazing view over Kandy lake. The owner is incredibly...

We are a couple in our 30's and were looking for a value, yet good quality stay for a few days. We stayed here for 4 nights in the end, oct 2015. The place is kept very clean and the host is very helpful and pleasant. The communal areas for eating and the balcony overlook the valley and the lake...

Mcleod Inn was so much more than we had expected. After trekking around Sri Lanka for a month in some very questionable accommodations we were greeted with warm hospitality, a beautifully clean room with hot water, beautiful breakfast and it's only a walk or a very short tuk tuk ride into the centre of Kandy. The hosts are amazing and...

Great hospitality, beautifully clean rooms and delicious breakfast make this one of the best guesthouse we have stayed in on our trip. Awesome views out over the Kandy Lake and an easy stroll down the hill to the centre. Highly recommend.

We stayed here for two nights and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The hosts are very kind and helpful (even giving us tips for our journey further) and the rooms are spotless. Then there is the view.... Which is absolutely stunning! Perfect for enjoying a hot or cold drink on the balcony. The only thing that could make the...

Stayed for one night, the host was lovely, organised a Tuktuk for us early in the morning and advised us about buses. The rooms were clean, with a mosquito net and the ensuite really did have hot water. The communal area and balcony is just lovely, views over kandy lake and town. We bought some beers and wine to have...

This is one of the cheaper guesthouses which looks over Kandy. It is about a ten minute walk to the city centre or you can easily get a tuk tuk. The staff were very friendly and helpful and looked after our bags once we had checked out on our departure day. The room was clean, fairly minimalistic and the bathroom...

McLeod Inn is a nice wee hotel up on the hill. We got the last room which was the one on the left as you go in the front door. Paid RS2500. Decent room, nice and clean with comfy bed but no blanket just a sheet, I was a bit chilly during the night. Easy walk down into town which...

Great accommodation, clean and reasonably priced with an amazing view over the lake from the terrace. Loved our stay here and breakfast in the morning is worth paying a little extra for. Very friendly helpful owners. Couldn't recommend highly enough
