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...

Dreadful lighting in room. No table in room. No soap. No blankets unless asked for them. Shower run into bathroom (no curtain) making floor very slick. View spectacular and hosts very attentive however. A few small changes could add enormously to this hotels appeal.

Stayed for one night in this Inn. Came in at last moment and thankfully they had a room available. The room was about $30 a night and quite basic. Not even a blanket and with a shower with not so much water pressure. This didn't matter its very safe and full of lovely travellers and has a nice vibe. You... More

Worth the climb of the steep hill to the guesthouse, the view of the lake is beautiful. We had a room in the back (no view) which was nice and clean. The host was welcoming. The value is good in Kandy as prices are more expensive than in other place. There are also rooms with view on the lake, probably... More

We stayed in this guesthouse for two nights, and had a really good stay. The rooms are clean and the guesthouse has a great view from the balcony over the lake. You are away from crowded, noisy Kandy, but able to walk there via a shortcut. The owner offered us an umbrella when we wanted to start walking to the... More
