Delicious dinner here!!! Buffet dinner quite expensive but so worth it! The man running the place also was so kind, I had a sore throat so he kindly sent me home with some table salt to gargle and also got his guitar out to play Eric Clapton tears in heaven before we left. Lovely man, good spirits, good Sri Lankan...

An affordable and clean enough budget stay in the beautiful Kandy. Staying at Sharon Inn makes you feel like you are high up away in the mountains, but also close enough to walk into Kandy town. Excellent value for money and friendly staff. Definitely recommend.

Great location with excellent views. Friendly and welcoming with well equipped room and bathroom. Superb food - the best we had in 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. The owner was very helpful in organising both tours and onward travel.

Based on reviews on trip advisor we decided have dinner on our 1st day in Kandy - disappointed! 1).The owner/gentleman on the ground floor as you enter is plainly rude and in a bad mood in general. We should have left at this point, but since this was highly recommended, we decided to try the buffet - another mistake. 2)....

Lovely set up atop the hill. The food is very healthy and tasty. Loved the roof top restaurant.The decoration is very local style and tasteful. The place is clean and well maintained.The view from the balcony is just too pretty. Perfect for enjoying the serenity of nature with a drink or soft music. The staff is super friendly and helpful....

Dinner was beautiful. Authentic and fresh. Bonus was as we were paying our bill, one of the owners enquired about our plans and organised a fantastic driver and day out for us. It was perfect. These guys have been established for a while and deserve all the praise. Highly recommended.

If you are in Kandy you have to go to Scharon Inn. Either for spending there some nights and enjoy the hospitality of the host family or for dinner to get the best curries in town. We had a good time at this place and like to recommend it to everybody.

Sharon Inn was one of the highlights of our Sri Lanka trip. The accommodation is close to the lake and town and its very comfortable with nice views down the valley. The hill is a little steep but there are loads of tuk tuks if you don't want to walk. The food is homemade and excellent. It's quite mild by...

Our first encounter with Sri-Lanka. The host was very kind and helpful. The rooms are vintage-like and comfortable. The shower is very good. You have to try the buffet dinner in the restaurant upstairs. A very quiet and beautiful hotel. We had such a nice time there
