This is a well priced place run by warm, helpful hosts; I couldn't have asked for more. If it's available I would recommend this place to anyone. The view is beautiful, the rooms are simple and the location is ideal

You can book a room with the awesome view of the lake and the city with the Tooth Relic Temple or you book a cheaper room and enjoy the same view from the balcony. Nice beds, mosquito net, van and towels. The simple 'western' breakfast costs a little on top of the room price for coffee or tea, white toast,... More

After strolling the streets to find a guest house, we came across a couple who recommended us McLeod Inn. We took the challenge and went all the way up hill and up some very steep stairs to find a bell which we rang. The owner welcomed us and showed us the available rooms (they have rooms with or without view... More

This family-owned B&B is a jewel in the crowd. Rooms are not exceptionally big, but very clean. The husband and wife who own this place are the nicest people you will meet in all of Sri Lanka. Very helpful in arranging transport, or dinner at a neighboring hotel. By accident we broke the toilet seat cover, which we told them... More

Amazing view of the lake from our room and from the restaurant. The prices were low compared to many other places in Kandy. Really nice people and atmosphere. Probably the best place to stay in Kandy!

Spent four nights at McLeod during the perahera in August 2014 and felt very relaxed immediately. The room was small but very clean and quiet and I spent most of my time on the communal balcony anyway, which has an amazing view over the lake and the hills beyond. Sitting up there in the evening listening to and watching the... More

This place has probably got Kandy's best view over the lake and two rooms with panorama windows. Close to town and the temple of the tooth and very friendly and helpful staff. There are several restaurants nearby.

We planned on staying one night but stayed three nights in mcleod. Th couple who runs the place are very friendly and relaxed, help with excursions ans information, provide a clean, safe, basic room. The view on the lake, the hills, the temple of the tooth is amazing. Ask for the rooms for a view if you so you can... More

It really is. We loved everthing about our stay at Mcleod Inn. The owners are helpful, kind and very serviceminded. The room is the cleanest room we're stayed in so far (we've been here for 24 days!) The balcony has a lovely view and it's only a short walk to the lake and city center. The hotel does not cooperate... More

The place was clean and looked welcoming. The rooms are basic but there is a shared access to a great balcony that overlooks the city. However, proprietors were very unfriendly. No smiles, they told us that our Sri Lankan family friend who also was our driver was unwelcome to stay there because it was only for 'tourists'. When we offered... More
