Arrived at Kandy late at night and we were looking either for two rooms or an apartment with two bedrooms. The owner gave us an apartment with two bedrooms but charged as two separated rooms. We paid almost 80 euros (a lot of money for this place) Rooms were basic, spacious and quite clean - but in the bathroom were... More

We went for the buffet dinner here because of the Lonely Planet review. it was all westerners, with their guide books in tow as well. the food was lovely, but we ate equally nice if not better in Kandy for a fraction of the price. There was a nice display of food but nit enough when everyone went back for... More

It is difficult to understand how the lonely Planet came up with their review as I found it to be very ordinary and there are many other guest houses and hotels to choose from that would have been much better. The room had no view, the furniture was broken and very little care is shown to the guest house. While... More

I went to this hotel because of the recommendation of Lonely Planet , however when I arrived at night , I found it high on the mountain top, an the road was dark, I think it unsafe. And the so-called delicious buffet, however ,was just 10 simple dishes( of nornal curry rice). When the waiter asked me what kind of... More

As others have stated, I came here based on a recommendation in a guide book - the Rough Guide. It was a journey up a long, windy, broken road. The owners seemed nice enough, but the cost was steep! The dinner was good - the eggplant curry was amazing, and one I still dream about today. The breakfast was just... More

A bit out of the way up a very steep hill but quite a nice little place. Sadly the food was exactly the same every single day but fine, and the rooms were clean but nothing special. The German lady owner was very pleasant and was more than happy to give advice on what to do and where to go,... More

I recommend you give the Sharon Inn a wide berth. With trusty Lonely Planet under my arm I booked a double room instilled with confidence after the many years Lonely Planet and I have travelled together. It was overpriced but I was willing to pay extra for a good recommendation. We were extremely disappointed - from the indifferent (my partner... More

Suggested by both Lonely Planet and the Rough Guide, my wife and I didn’t have doubts in looking for a room here. The approach was immediately disconcerting. Past the sort of muletrack to drive up there (hard for tuk-tuk’s too), after a while the owner appeared disappointed to interrupt his lunch (it was 4 PM), finally confirming the room available...

The rooms are OK, but nothing out of the ordinary. Our double room had 2 beds put together in stead og 1 big bed and the beds were made with rough blankets. Hosts were friendly enough. We paid 6000 rupee for a night, and the stay didn't offer us more than the average 3500 rupee places.

I was there at sharon inn for about 4 days in December 2013. The cost of the room was a little expensive but it was clean, tidy and spacious. We did run into some trouble with the maid robbing us of our money. Faiesz and Sue immediately sprung to action, helped us catch the thief, and did come along with... More
