Great stay in McLeod Inn. Warm welcome of the friendly owner who was always there to help with any questions. Clean rooms, nice community area, awesome view over the city. Scooter rent right next door to explore city.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at McLeod Inn. The staff could not have been nicer, and the dining room has a beautiful view over the city. The breakfast was delicious, and they gave us lots of helpful hints about the city. We had a room on the bottom floor, but the ones higher up would have a good view. A...

We booked a double/twin room with lake view for our stay. The inn is old-ish (has been around at least 35 years!) but is well maintained and clean. As such some of the furnishings were quaint but definitely functional. The beds were relatively comfortable and clean, the toilet/shower was clean and the hot water worked. There is also a TV...

We had the room with the view of the lake which was stunning - can't imagine where you'd find a better one! The beds are basic but comfy (we had two twins pushed together but it was fine) and the room was clean; the bathroom was fairly small but not unreasonable. The owner was very friendly and kind and let...

We spent one night here in a double room based on the reviews. Our experience seems to have been different to the majority of glowing reports on here. In the two weeks we spent travelling around Sri Lanka our room in McCleod Inn was the smallest and poorest value and in no way resembled the room displayed when we booked...

Stayed here 2 nights. The room was modern, bright, spotlessly clean and spacious (and reasonably priced). The owner and his wife couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful, arranging tours, ordering tuk-tuks and providing useful advice about Kandy. The breakfast is good too. It is a bit out of the city centre set in the hill overlooking the south side...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Property is basic but very clean, owners are very welcoming and happy to help. Great view across Kandy. The hotel is about 15 mins walk from town, down some very steep steps and hill (you can get a tuk tuk but we didn't do this) We organised a car to take us to Ella...

The view from this place is outstanding. It was a basic little guest house but clean, the wifi worked well and the breakfast was good. They were also able to help us organise fairly priced transport and the family were very helpful and friendly. The guest house does not serve food other than breakfast although there are a few options...
