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

Very nice location on the hill with an amazing view. Run by a very nice couple who is always friendly. Walking distance from the city center. Good breakfast and very clean. Price is very fair. Would suggest to pre-book as there are not too many rooms.

It is a bit uphill (there is a shortcut)but the room was big enough and very clean. The breakfast is like in all other places, toast egg and fruit. We had a room without view because they have a big shared balcony with view, watch out for the monkeys there though, they will steal everything if you are not carefull.

My partner and I spent 1 night at McLeod Inn. For a very reasonable price we got a lovely clean room (with an ensuite and fan) and a spectacular view. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was nice. The location of McLeod is up in the mountain overlooking Kandy, so you do need to get a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in april. The owners, a local couple, are super friendly. There are not too many rooms around a communal area which has a big balcony. From here you have the best views over Kandy. The rooms have fans and ensuite bathroom. They are okay, the beds were not extremely comfortable and squeeked everytime we... More
