The guesthouse is located in the mountain, offering a picturesque birdview of the Kandy city and the lake. Room is spacious and clean. Kandy lake is only about 15-20 minutes walk away by a shortcut, but even the longer cut wouldn't cost you more than 35 minutes plus a stroll in the mountain is most pleasant. And staff are very...

Second time at McLeods and still a great place to stay. Ashan (spelling?) and his family are very accommodating and helpful, it’s spotlessly clean, the location is fabulous – can’t fault it in any way and hope to go back some day.

We have stayed here before, 18 years on it is just as delightful and still unspoiled. Ashan the owner and his wife are so friendly and helpful, they had a great driver who took us to the Ancient Cities. Rooms are 3000 or 4000 rupees depending on whether you have a view. The views are spectacular across Kandy Lake and... More

We stayed in a few places in Kandy and this was surely the friendliest welcome we received. The management were unfalteringly helpful and rarely greeted you with anything but an ear to ear smile. The rooms were basic but everything we needed. The view from the balcony was awesome. The location sees it in the middle of the backpacker area... More

We can recommend this place! Simple but clean room, cheap and the common area has a great view over Kandy! What we liked the most is that they kept their prices low, unlike the rest of Sri Lankan guesthouses that is written down in the lonely planet. Please keep it this way!

Lovely guesthouse up on the ridge, has a large balcony with views over the whole lake at Kandy. Great place to sit with a book and cup of tea in the evening. Guesthouse owners were very helpful with advising on local transport, arranging taxis, what to do in the area etc. We went for the room with a view over... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was one of the cleanest places we stayed in Sri Lanka. The rooms are simple but they were very clean and comfortable. We chose the room with a view so there was plenty of natural light with a complete wall of windows! The view from the common balcony was beautiful and it... More

We stayed here twice, both for two nights. The first time we stayed in room 2, with a view. This was a great view and it was nice to sleep an night with the lights of Kandy shining in the evening. The room was clean and plenty of space. It was 4000 rupees, which we think was a bit overpriced.... More
