I stayed 2 nights in this very welcoming family-run hotel. The room was impeccably clean and comfortable. Dinner is fantastic. The owner is a good source of information for travelling around Sri Lanka and he set me up with a driver for a couple of days. Recommended.

Sue and Faiesz run the place impeccably and efficiently! The ladies working around the hotel and in the kitchen are absolutely delightful! The rooms were clean, mosquito nets excellent, showers delivered hot water and our verandah overlooked the lake. We stayed for three nights and ate there every night as the food was to die for. The buffet has different... More

This is a pretty good hotel overlooking Kandy lake. Presently they have twelve rooms in a 5 storey building. Upper floor rooms have nice views. Stayed there four consecutive nights, plus a fifth one after our return from Polonnaruwa. Rooms are very clean, bathrooms are fairly big and well equipped. One of the few places in Sri Lanka in this... More

We stayed here for 6 nights during our 6 week visit to Sri Lanka, then stopped for a further night on our return from Trinco. The Sharon Inn is a real find, the owners Sue and Faiesz are very knowledgeable and helpful, their staff are delightful and happy. Rooms are clean and fresh with great showers and verandahs! Food is... More

I stayed at the Sharon Inn with three friends and we all loved every minute of our stay. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They were so friendly and smiley every day and it was a joy to come home after a long day sightseeing. The breakfasts (included in the price) and the evening meals were... More

We enjoyed our stay of 4 nights in Feb. 2014. The rooms were clean and comfortable (if a little over-stuffed with furniture). Nice breakfast, good location. Beds were comfortable and the balcony was a nice spot to sit and read in the afternoons. Staff and owners were friendly and very kind to our toddler. I'd suggest booking transport elsewhere, though.... More

Owners Faiesz and Sue were very frienly and helpful, only needed to be asked and they provided good advice and organised what we required, tuktuk and taxi service etc. Excellent breakfast and evening buffet. Rooms were spotlessly clean and well maintained. Would stay again.

Helpful and friendly staff. Very clean. Great views from the upper levels but as it is built on a hill, here are lot of steep stairs to get to some of the rooms. The best thing about this place was the fabulous dinner: excellent spread of mainly vegetarian curries at a very reasonable price.

Stayed here for 2 nights in January 2014. Good standard accommodation, very clean and in good condition, but it was not cheap at 8600 rupees for a double room with aircon and breakfast, though rooms may be cheaper if you call in or book by phone at shorter notice. Not all rooms have a view over Kandy, so ask for... More

Don't understand why this place gets any good reviews. At 6600 rupees a night it is outrageously overpriced for a guest house anywhere in Sri Lanka. The arrogant owner is just trying to rip you off at every opportunity. A beer costs 490 rupees!! The owner said because this is in the Temple of the Tooth area and he had... More
