Stayed here last week for 4 days. Wonderful, quiet hotel with a relaxing atmosphere & fantastic views over the lake towards the Temple of the Tooth. Its a no frills establishment but is clean, welcoming & has everything most people could need. Its a lovely 15 minute walk into town & a short tuk tuk ride back. The manager &... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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

My husband and I stayed here for four nights. The owner was extremely helpful, recommending good restaurants and arranging a driver (very nice and gentile person) for one-day trip to Sigiriya and Dambulla. The view from the common balcony was fantastic. They also serve beer, soft drinks and delicious tea with a very decent price.

We enjoyed a wonderful few days at the McLeod inn staying in one of the top floor corner bedrooms with floor to ceiling windows and stunning views of Kandy lake. There are 2 of these bedrooms and I would say they are worth the little extra. The rooms were light, very clean and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and... More

This place is fine - clean rooms and with a communal balcony that has great views over Kandy. The rooms themselves are a bit dark and pokey, and there seemed to be mozzies everywhere. We passed through Kandy twice and spent a bit more time looking for accommodation the second time. There are definitely options out there which are lower... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in mid February 215. Agreed booking via email as could not do via website/booking.com etc. Decided against getting breakfast as it looked as though it was more of a European style, toast and tea - went to local cafe a short stroll away which provided some great local food options. Bedroom and bathroom were clean... More

We stayed here on a recommendation and we were a bit underwhelmed. We thought the room was fine, but very bare. There was a nice view from the guesthouse, but the road is lined with hotels with nice views. We were also a bit put off by the curfew, which was 10pm. The checkout time was also pretty early. The...
