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

We walked in off the street to Sharon inn with a request to turn a double room into a triple room. They were more than willing to do this for us, which we really appreciated! The cost of the room was quite expensive but it was clean, tidy and spacious. The bathroom especially was immaculate for mid-range accommodation. The main... More

So the Lonely Planet raved about this place (as I've heard many other guide books have) but I just cannot see what the fuss is about. For what you get it's pretty expensive, the rooms are beyond basic and the tuk tuk drivers waiting outside charge twice as much as everybody else. And it feels like a hostel. The main... More

Our Rough Guide was very positive about this hotel but I think the review is a little bit too positive. Ok, the rooms are clean, the buffet at night was delicious (and good value for money) but there is just no atmosphere here. Rooms very basic and staff wasn't into talking / very hospitable.

We stayed here for two nights, rooms were great, clean and comfortable beds. Food at night is fantastic! Lovely curry buffet. Definitely worth a try even if not staying here. Male manager was quite unfriendly and didn't seem happy to advice on anything. Prices he suggested for taxi were very high, much more than what we arranged ourselves.
