Lonely Planet review
One of Kandy’s longest established guesthouses and still one of the best. Excellent views and scrupulously clean rooms decorated with Sri Lankan arts and crafts add up to a relaxing place to stay. Not surprisingly it’s one of the town’s busiest hotels and the owners are fully on the ball with travel information and tours.
It's a good bet for those travelling with young children as they have baby cots as well as a family room sleeping up to five people (Rs 12,000). The nightly buffet dinner, served at 7.30pm under the starlit rooftop restaurant (Rs 1100), is a tasty shortcut to falling in love with Sri Lankan cuisine. Dinner is open to outside guests, so phone to make a booking.
Our independent authors have visited Sharon Inn and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Kandy.
