Stayed for two nights in this place in March. It is not a typical hotel, but more of a family run place. But that was not a problem since the room was nice and large and the staff was very friendly. Also we would highly recommend the food in this place - the breakfast and dinners we had were very... More

I stayed in Feb 2014 and will definitely return next time I am in Kandy. The service is incredible, the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are clean, spacious and well presented. The area is very quiet. The food is delicious and generous. Fantastic!

After staying here for two nights at the beginning of February I have to say that I cannot understand the glowing reviews it gets on TripAdvisor. The owner and his wife were away at the time of our stay but I do not think that this should be used as an excuse for what I thought was a very unsatisfactory... More

We recently stayed at Sweet Cinnamon for 3 nights and really fell in love with the place. We arrived early after a long flight and train ride to be greeted with a very welcome cup of tea and fabulous carrot cake. Our room was made available immediately and it was heaven! So thoughtfully laid out with flower petals on the... More

It was not easy to find the guesthouse but was well worth it when we got there. We were warmly welcome with a cup of tea and the best carrot we have eaten. Our deluxe room was very roomy even with an extra bed in it. We were sorry that we had eaten a big lunch as the dinner looked... More

I can endorse the previous positive comments. We stayed here for three peaceful nights in August. This is a beautiful and gentle setting with gracious hosts. Our room was perfect and complete with very thoughtful details. The downside is that you may struggle to find it in a tuk tuk , it is a shame that this cannot be resolved... More

We had a brief stay in Kandy, but having stayed at Sweet Cinnamon, we with it had been longer. This is wonderful accommodation, with two wonderfully hospitable owners. The gardens are lush and the accommodation very comfortable. Our food was cooked to order, with the staff at pains to deal with specific dietary needs. It was an easy tuk tuk... More

We stayed here for three nights over Christmas and had a fantastic time. The room and bathroom are spacious, clean and have high ceilings. They even provide all the necessities if you've forgotten them or you've run out; like toothpaste, toothbrushes and tissues. About a 20 minute walk into town it feels like you're in the depths of the jungle... More

Sweet Cinnamon is nestled in the hills just off the Main Street to town. It's quiet and the grounds are gorgeous, yet it's only a hop skip and a jump to bustling downtown kandy. The footbridge to the botanical gardens is just down the street as well. The rooms are cute and spotless and the breakfast is deeeeelishous. Last but... More
