I booked this place over the phone and was relieved to find their English was excellent, I was quoted 3600Rs a night incl breakfast but when we checked out & my partner paid the overall bill, I found the room charge was 6000Rs a night? Bit confusing, but I didn't realize until after we'd left in a car - so... More

A real thank you for making our stay in Kandy memorable. The tours where fantastic, and the food something to look forward to at the end of the day.

Stayed here for three nights in one of the top floor rooms in September 2011. Room was spacious, place was spotlessly clean and garden very pleasant to relax in after day exploring. The owners were great, organising cars, transfers etc. The rice and curry was a highlight for me, highly recommend this place.

We stayed for three nights in Sharon Inn. Our room was very clean, the sri lankan food was excellent and the owner helped us planning our visit. He even made the reservations for our next hotel in Dalhousie. If you want nice food, clean rooms and kind people, you should go to Sharon Inn.

We chose this guesthouse because the Rough Guide to Sri Lanka claimed it had the best curry in town. That was definitely not the case. In fact, you had to be fast to fill up your plate, or the curry, served buffet style, did not have any meat left in it -- the staff only replaced the vegetables! A beer... More

After fifteen years we were back in Kandy, in the Sharon Inn. We had a very special stay again. Good room, clean guesthouse, friendly owners and very good staff. And the Sharon Inn had by far the best beds of our three weeks trip. At first we stayed four days. We left some luggage in the Sharon Inn and made... More

Nice and clean guesthouse but unfortunately the owner was quite grumpy and inhospitable to us during our stay. The employees were very friendly and helpful yhough. The dinner was nice but be sure to be hungry as it is a lot of food! If it was a bit more friendly to us, the rating would have been higher...

At the top of a hill above Kandy Lake, Sharon Inn is a relaxed, good-value place with very clean, comfortable rooms (mine had a balcony & a view) & a congenial, welcoming atmosphere.

We stayed for a couple of nights half board in February, and chose to go back when we passed through Kandy on our return trip.This is a popular, well run guest house and the owner and his wife were welcoming and helpful.
