Sharon Inn was recommended to us, and after seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor our expectations were quite high. Sadly, Sharon Inn did not deliver in the end and we even left angry. Let me give you some examples: The room had a great view and a nice balcony. Unfortunately you cannot spend time there because of tonnes of monkeys... More

We stayed here for three nights, the Sharon Inn is great value for money. Soon as we walked in we could see straight away that it was spotlessly clean.We had an ensuite room with fan and tv it was very comfortable. The breakfast was good and plentiful. In the evening the buffet was brillant so we ate here every evening.... More

We stayed here for a few days in October and really enjoyed it. The Sharon Inn is a small guesthouse up a steep winding road from Kandy lake. It's very clean and the owners were very helpful and welcoming. I would recommend having the evening 'rice & curry' meal if you can one evening of your stay too - it's... More

We stayed in Sri Lanka for 10 days and this place was truly the worst! Faisal, the owner was unfriendly and rude once he found out we were not going to eat in his guesthouse. He never mentioned anything about breakfast or dinner or how much they cost when we were booking, so we thought it would be no problem.... More

We were happy to stay in this hotel for four nights and had a lake view room. First before our trip we planned to change the hotels when moving to other towns (Dambulla, Nuwara Eliya), but after a couple nights we loved our stay so much that decided to return to Kandy Sharon Inn in the evening after trips rather...

As a solo traveler I felt welcome and had a nice, clean room. I got good advices for my trips to Kandy, Sigiriya and the Knuckles Hills. The dinner was delicous and the service very friendly and helpfull. I liked it and stayed for four days.

This place has everything you need in Kandy. The location on top of the hill provides great views of the lake and monkey watching in the morning. The room was spacious and clean. We came back every day to find our room cleaned up and the beds made. They can arrange all of your trips/tours etc. as well. The real... More

Very disapointed and a rip off in terms of price/value for money . Both owners were far from warm and friendly .The family unanimously voted it the worst place we stayed.We also found out the owners have a very unfriendly approach to Sri Lankans ,who are not welcome as guests or even when guides drop of tourists. We were attracted... More

Sharon Inn is located at the top of a very steep hill (a cheap bajaj ride) with some views of Kandy from some of the rooms. The rooms were clean and neat, with all the basic requirements, for a great price. The dinner buffet was awesome - a great introduction to Sri Lankan cuisine (try the eggplant pickle!). The owner...
