A smal place away from the hustle of Kandy- very relaxing. Excellent, nicely decorated room. The breakfast was lovingly prepared. Big, nice pool (but a little cold). Very friendly staff. Highly recommended.

A few kilometres from busy Kandy town centre, Sweet Cinnamon is a peaceful haven with amazing food and staff. Our room was big, clean and the bed had a mozzie net which we were grateful for having been nibbled on previous days. Dinner is SriLankan curry and rice and there is loads of really tasty food! Breakfast was good too.... More
