We have stayed 2 nights in this hotel and were very pleased with it. Our room had ac, a very nice view over the lake and a clean bathroom. The owner helped us with all questions and provided us with everything needed. The breakfast was included. We also used a laundry service, which was not expensive and totally worth it.... More

We had the MOST pleasant stay at McLeod Inn. Ashan, the owner, and his wife were extremely hospitable and friendly. The location is quiet with a stunning view of the lake and the temple. We occupied one of the lake view rooms which was spacious, newly renovated with upgraded aircon and satellite TV. The entire inn is spotlessly clean. The... More

McLeod Inn looks down over Kandy and the Lake. We had a room with a view, but there is also a communal balcony which enjoys the same beautiful aspect. The accommodation is clean and very comfortable and Ashan and his wife are extremely kind, informative and helpful. It is a short tuktuk ride to town or one can walk down... More

The hotel looks onto the Kandy Lake and is very peaceful. To get into town, you either catch a tuk-tuk or walk which is about 15 minutes. The owners are lovely people and helped us organise a driver and a car for two of the days we stayed in Kandy, as well as recommending a few restaurants close by.

Ashan and his wife were very kind and helpful. Rooms basic but clean with ensuite bathroom--towels changed every day. Marvellous lake view from dining room. Up a hill from the busy town so quiet spot. Highly recommended.

Just sitting out on the balcony with a beer and looking at the city was something I could do every day. Try to get one of the rooms with a view. Very close by (but down and up alot of stairs) is the restaurant Sharon which is worth a visit. The owner at McLeod also has contact with a great... More

Our bedroom and bathroom were comfortable & clean, and more than adequate for our brief stay ( one night ). The balcony off the dining room was a plus - lovely view over the lake. We walked to the Garden Cafe ( very good) which is at the end of the road, less than 15 minutes walk, tuk tuk ride... More

The couple who owns the place are very sweet, generous and helpful. The rooms are clean, and there is a shared terrace with a stunning view over the lake. Moreover the other guesthouse's in the area were more expensive. We would highly recommend this place!

Very friendly guesthouse. I stayed in one of the rooms with a view, was worth the extra cost. The guesthouse put me in touch with a great driver (Suresh) to take me around the cultural triangle for a few days which ended up being the highlight of my 2 week stay in Sri Lanka

Spent 3 nights last months, the rooms are basic but clean, the view is probably one of the best in Kandy and the owners are absolutely brilliant, full of good tips and very accommodating. Great value for money!
