Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very warm welcome after a tricky day when trains were cancelled due to landslide. Loved the tea and cake on arrival. The rooms were beautifully appointed with so much attention to detail. The staff warm and helpful. The meal was ok not the best we have had in SL but loved having the dining table to ourselves and played some games.. The staff were happy to let us drink a bottle of champagne we had brought with us and went out of their way to provide us with an early breakfast thank you.

My children and I stayed at this beautiful hotel with so much pleasure. We were treated with much love and attention. The house is very romantic and stylish. Very nice interior as well. Flowers everywhere. It is a quiet haven with walking distance from the city centre. (half an hour). The swimming pool is very nice and well maintained and cleaned. The (bath) rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden. I can fully recommend this paradise. Anne

This a beautiful hotel with lovely staff. It’s walkable to get into central Kandy but in a pretty peaceful location. The room was stunning with plenty of light, spacious and a comfy bed. The bathroom was stunning. We were welcomed with tea and cake and relaxed in a beautiful shaded outside space. We had a gorgeous Sri Lankan dinner in the evening and one of the best breakfasts of our trip the next morning. The staff could not do enough for us. We would definitely recommend this hotel, our only downside was it was one of the more expensive places we stayed and based on our 10 day trip it was probably a little over priced.

Strongly recommend this place. The welcome from George and staff was great and they helped us order a tuk-tuk to and from the centre of Kandy. The hotel is beautifully kept with all mod-cons and the breakfasts and dinner we had were delicious.

Immaculately kept and very clean this is a lovely place to stay with great staff and good food. Beautiful gardens too. We would return. The only disappointment was the clothes wardrobe in the room was scruffy and seemed very out of place compared to the standard of the rest of the room. There were only a few very inferior wire hangers. Strange as the rest was super.

At Sweet Cinnamon, you'll find a wonderful oasis of calm near downtown Kandy. The staff are incredibly accommodating and read almost every wish from the eyes. For breakfast we had fresh Kings Coconut directly from the palm tree. We would come back anytime and highly recommend the Sweet Cinnamon.

The hotel itself is very nice and we had a big room for us. The garden is big with lots of trees and flowers, some spices and of course cinnamon trees. Compared to our last visit (02/2020) the management and at least part of the staff has changed. Staff friendliness was very good and the new man in charge of the service asked more than once if everything is fine and if we had other wishes. Meals were very fine and since we were the only guests at that time (12/2022) we really felt like the owners of a beautiful villa. ;-) Still worth improving is the way to the pool which is a bit up the hill from the house.

After only five days into our 20 day tour of Sri Lanka we arrived at Sweet Cinnamon and after a long day of travelling, were warmly greeted at this delightful oasis with a cup of tea and delicious cake. Our driver received some information , that because of the Coronavirus, the airlines were cancelling many flights and that it would be prudent to go back to Negombo immediately to be close to the airport. We explained this to our host who was most understanding and said he would not charge us for the night. We did have a chance to look at the rooms which looked comfortable and spacious. On our return home we discovered that Agoda charged us and did not pass it on to the owner. We had a battle with Agoda and so contacted the owner and with his very kind help finally were reimbursed. We cannot express our gratitude more to Sweet Cinnamon for their understanding and kindness. We would certainly book there again when we can return to Sri Lanka and resume our trip.

The hotel itself was very nice and we had a big room for us. The garden was big with lots of trees and flowers, some spices and of course cinnamon trees. Meals were fine to very fine (only breakfast didn't quite reach the quality of other hotels in Sri Lanka). What we didn't like too much was that we had to climb some steep steps to reach the swimming pool situated on a plateau above the hotel with another house directly besides the pool (looking towards it). If possible, would have given 4.5 dots.
