The owners and staff provide hands-on service and care and do all that they can to make you relax and enjoy your stay.
We echo the many comments about the cleanliness of this hotel, the sensational views, the spacious communal areas, the cable TV (where we could watch movies and the cricket) and the tasty and ample food.
While an earlier comment mentioned losing money, all rooms have posters advising guests not to leave any valuables in their rooms and free lockers are made available.
My wife and I had to check our email daily and we were especially glad of the free and fast Internet and computer service that was provided by the Sharon Inn.
We noted that some people commented on the way the Sharon Inn was near the end of the road and there were many stairs to climb but the position high up on the hill overlooking the lake and the town means that the rooms have marvellous elevation and a balcony from which these views can be savoured.
We have taken away many rich memories of our 4 day stay at Kandy's Sharon Inn but here are two:
1. The food at the Sharon Inn is second to none. We had a Sri Lankan breakfast every morning that consisted of a pot of Sri Lankan tea, a plate of tropical fruit and a plate of the traditional string hoppers with coconut sambol to give it some kick. Such generous servings and very reasonably priced.
We had a Sri Lankan lunch most days with rice, a meat dish, about 8 vegetable dishes and some papadoms. This was a total Sri Lankan experience.
The variety was only greater for the evening meals. No wonder many from other hotels come to dine at the Sharon Inn in the evening.
2. The homely touch is illustrated by the way the owners help you arrange tours or transport to different attractions. Also on our final morning, when we had to leave early , the owner and manager got up to make us a cup of tea and prepare a breakfast we could take on the train. It doesn't get much better than this!
