It is a very rustically guest house and also a bit hard to find. Buut once you get there it is lovely. You have a nice view on the jungle, a nice lawn, and a very cute dog called: Molly. You just have to like curry.

This hotel is like a little quiet haven away from everywhere. The gardens are glorious and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The food has been outstanding (although I've not been keen on waffles and pancakes for breakfast). The BBQ they did new eves years was fabulous, with a bonfire and fairy lights decorated all the trees. Rooms are...

Dinner was reasonably priced and plentiful. Lovely...

On arrival we were greeted with warm cake and coffee and a beautiful place to sit while we waited for our room to be ready - we arrived before the 2pm check in. Our room was stunning, with flowers on the bed and in bowls around the room. We were offered on arrival 3 meal options as I gather there...

A smal place away from the hustle of Kandy- very relaxing. Excellent, nicely decorated room. The breakfast was lovingly prepared. Big, nice pool (but a little cold). Very friendly staff. Highly recommended.

We only stayed 1 night here, but it was absolutely lovely. We were met with tea and delicious carrot cake. the rooms were delightful, with thoughtful touches. Breakfast was gorgeous, and we only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the lovely food and tranquil setting of Sweet Cinnamon. We would love to return to Kandy, and if so,...

We arrived in Kandy for the Perahara and what a hustling bustling place the City was. It was refreshing to drive only 1.5 km and arrive at the very tranquil Sweet Cinnamon. The first impression was that it was very small, but quaint with lovely lovely staff. Once again the Sri Lankan people excel in customer service. So warm and...
