We’ve been in Sri Lanka for over 2 weeks now and the food at the Sharon Inn is without a doubt the worst Sri Lankan food we’ve eaten. Toned down flavours and not a hint of spice in sight. If you want bland, overpriced tourist...More

The family room we had was huge and clean. We even had a small balcony. The view from top terrace were we eat both dinner and breakfast was fantastic. You could see monkeys from it too.

I would absolutely recommend staying at Sharon Inn. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Beds very comfy. Don’t miss dinner at the rooftop restaurant - a buffet of delicious Sri Lankan curries! Sharon Inn is a peaceful oasis within walking distance of bustling Kandy city.

The food isn't bad at all, but the restaurant serving method is all wrong. We didnt know they only serve food on a specific time,. We wait over 1:30 hours until they served the food. The restaurant was fully booked, so over 50 people run...More
