Lovely clean room, great location with amazing views of the lake. 15 minute wander to the lake itself and a further 5 into the main part of the city. Breakfast a tad expensive for what they provided but there were many other local options available which were cheaper and better. Lovely couple who ran the guest house who were only... More

We stayed just a night at this quiet and well organised place with fantastic views over Kandy. The graceful owner and his wife could not have been more helpful , and the rooms were simple, clean and comfortable. Everything you could want from a budget place to stay.

We arrived at the hotel exhausted after a 24 hour trip from the UK. Straight into one of the bedrooms with big windows and views over Kandy, and then into the comfy bed. Ashan, our host, is perfect. Nothing is too much trouble, and he is very knowledgeble - he even recommended our hotel in Nuawar Eliya. He also arranged... More

We had a great time here. The rooms lead down to a staircase which lead to Kandy lake and the city. We really appreciated all the advice and assistance we received from McLeod Inn. We opted for the room without a view and were really happy. Small rooms but manageable for three or so nights. The communinal area is beautiful... More

This hotel has probably the best view in Kandy from a nice communal balcony. The place is very clean and tidy and rooms were good. You can order breakfast for an additional 400Rp (£2ish) which was also nice. The owners were both very nice and friendly. The only drawback is the 10.30pm curfew. I had no problem being back in...

We stayed here a for 2 nights but if we could we definitely would have stayed longer. Rooms are very clean and for a good price (breakfast not included). They do not serve dinner. The view from the common room is amazing! You can choose to take a room with a view over Kandy but these are more expensive. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2014 The breakfast is also very filling (lots of fruit!), owner is very friendly, rooms are spacious & clean. Our room had a... More

We stayed one night in Kandy, 17/10/2014, and were lucky to be staying in the McLeod Inn. Greeted by a very warm welcome, friendly, beautiful accommodation with a breathtaking view of the city - which can be sampled from the communal balcony. Our room was a bargain and our breakfast was simple but superb - Won't get a better cup... More
