“Excellent, very clean, superb hosts, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2010

Faiesz and Sue were great hosts, providing helpful advice and above all a clean and friendly establishment. The evening meal, consisting of a buffet of around 10 Sri Lankan dishes was plentiful, very tasty and very reasonably priced. The room was also inexpensive, well maintained and cleaned daily.
Highly recommend this guest house to all staying in Kandy.

Pros
-Clean and comfortable rooms
-Friendly owners
-Near city centre
-Free wifi (Con: range limited to ground floor but they are considering extending it)

Cons
-Room not ready at check in time (12 noon)
-Relatively expensive meals
-Neighbourhood dogs barked all night twice (out of five nights) - holds for all area guest houses such as Expeditors, Golder Roof, Highest View etc..

Overall - definitely recommended. Don't forget your earplugs at home though.

Good location, rooms very clean, with modern decor and food very good and freshly cooked Sri Lankan but limited menu. Doesn't serve food or snacks during the day. Not all balconies have a good view, but rooms are a moderate size with sky news TV.

Internet was free but limited to one laptop for the whole hotel. Wireless did not work except on one floor in a small space.

Tours offered but very expensive relative to other hotels in the vicinity, the owners don't take kindly to you using other transport than their own.

Average breakfast. Very good dinner, though. A good variety of dishes buffet style. However, some dishes are too salty (seems to be Kandy style), and some are western style. Not spicy enough.

Accomodations are very comfortable with hot water and large rooms. The biggest gripe is that everyone who works here seems depressed, and that affects the experience.

Stayed for 4 nights with a 2year-old child in December. Absolutely loved the place. The owners, Sue and Fayaz, are very helpful and accommodating. Got special child menu (vegetable soup and pasta). The best food we tried in Sri Lanka. Spotless clean. The best views are from rooms #7 and 9 and from the rooftop garden. Very cozy! Feels like home away from home. Great value for money.

Sincerely recommended place:
Sharon inn has simple and clean rooms: Excellent views over the lake, the city and the temple.
Owners and staff are friendly and the service is great: if you need help with your onward trip (accomodation, transport) Faiesz will surely help you out.
The dinner is very nice, certainly in my Sri Lankan Dinner top 3.

Don't hesitate. You've never experienced SriLankan food of this calibre. Obliging and personable hosts. All in the cleanest rooms overlooking Kandy lake
