The place is very clean but dull.  The big setback are the owners.  Sharon is always impatient. The place has a very strict set of rules- no soft drinks from outside, a top secret Wi Fi access code- (Sharon is pinching it in your device, so you will not sell it to spys and at night there was hardly any...

The hotel owner's husband was unfriendly. When we arrived, there was no one to welcome us. The guy even told us that our driver, who was a local, was not allowed into the guesthouse. That was extremely unprofessional. Secondly, when he was speaking to us, he didn't make eye contact and was busy on his handphone talking to someone else....

We didnt stay at Sharons but had Rice and Curry buffet there. It was very tasty and varied (10 different curries). At 1100 rupees pr. Person its not the cheapest meal in Sri Lanka, but in my opinion it was well worth the money. Remember to book by lunch

We had not idea what getting to our room had to do with the rain. We soon realized that although our room had been booked and pre-paid weeks earlier, they were sold...

Up in the hills overlooking the lake in Kandy is a great guesthouse. The room was comfortable with a good shower and was very clean. There was even a balcony and a little garden. But what really steals the show is Faiz - possibly the kindest most helpful person we met on our travels. Faiz lent us his Lonely Planet...

Located up a hill from the lake in central Kandy, this inn offers great value. Clean large rooms, great view of the temple of the tooth from upstairs room (great if you don't mind a few extra stairs). Highly recommend the buffet, family style atmosphere and fantastic selection of delicious SL curries and local dishes. Owner is very helpful, friendly...
