We stayed for 5 nights between Christmas and New Year, and had a wonderful, relaxed time. The location is great: walking distance from the lake, but quiet and with great views. The food, which included a variety of local vegetarian specialities, was delightful. The owners could not do enough for us: making emergency calls to the train station to secure... More

My husband and I had high expectations of the food at the Sharon Inn courtesy of the Lonely Planet - these were definitely fulfilled plus all other aspects of our 3 night stay at the Sharon Inn were excellent. The hosts Sue and Faiyez were very attentive, helpful and generous with their time and conversation. The staff were excellent and... More

We stayed here for four nights and had an overall good experience. The hotel is very clean (leave your shoes at the door), the room was basic, but had a good shower and a balcony. Could do with better pillows, they are very flat and the bed is very firm. We stayed for the buffet for a couple of nights,... More

I stay at Sharon Inn every time I visit Kandy for work. The owners are lovely and the perfect hosts! Sharon Inn is always lively with friendly travellers and the dinner times are legendary with the most delicious home cooked Sri Lankan buffet served every night. The rooms are tastefully decorated using local materials and clean with great views. I... More

We stayed in Sharon Inn in December 2010 and we would recommend this guesthouse for several reasons - good quiet location compared to the city center, excellent food for the dinner buffet (jackfruit curry, dhal), very clean rooms, wifi worked OK, well organized trips and reasonable staff, especially the tiny introvert waiter was remarkably helpful. The only minus point would... More

My girl friend an my self booked the Sharon Inn for only three nights at the beginning of November. We came in from Hikkaduwa almost around mid-night, and the owners happily greeted us despite the time! We had read quiet a few of the reviews for the Sharon Inn, and it really did live up to it's reputation of being... More

There are many good reviews of this Inn and its top ranking suggests that it is the place to stay in Kandy. Before arrival I emailed to ask if they had a room for one night, but got no response. I presumed that they were not interested with short stays and wanted guests on longer term. Nevertheless on arrival at... More

Stayed here in Oct for 2 nights. Its a good base for exploring Kandy, although being at the top of a steep hill not great to walk too. The rooms are basic but very clean, the service was good and the owner very friendly. We had the set Sri Lankan meal and that was great value. The beer is reasonable... More

When we (myself, husband, two kids and two seniors) arrived at Sharon inn from Negombo we discovered that our reservations had been cancelled!. The hotel has... More

We were recommended to stay here by friends - as it has long been established as a favourite in Kandy. However - the owners are too used to having this reputation, and they have stopped putting the effort in. They were grumpy, hard to make converstation with and also quite rude - as they ignored my girlfriend when she tried... More
