We have stayed here before, 18 years on it is just as delightful and still unspoiled. Ashan the owner and his wife are so friendly and helpful, they had a great driver who took us to the Ancient Cities. Rooms are 3000 or 4000 rupees depending on whether you have a view. The views are spectacular across Kandy Lake and City, but you can drink your fill from the balcony while having breakfast or unwinding at the end of the the day. It is immaculately clean, rooms have en suite etc.
No evening meals but a short walk to Sharon Inn (highly recommended) or for a splash out and out there experience - Helga's Folly.

Room Tip: Book Early!

We stayed in a few places in Kandy and this was surely the friendliest welcome we received. The management were unfalteringly helpful and rarely greeted you with anything but an ear to ear smile.

The rooms were basic but everything we needed. The view from the balcony was awesome. The location sees it in the middle of the backpacker area so easy to arrange tours and find good food. It is a lovely ten minute walk around the lake to the middle of town and they arranged tuktuks (at the right price for a change) for us to go to the station when the time came to leave.

Good value for money, great service. Would highly recommend.

(only problem was that, being Scottish, we pronounced it "McLoud" which caused no end of confusion to tuktuk drivers)

We can recommend this place! Simple but clean room, cheap and the common area has a great view over Kandy! What we liked the most is that they kept their prices low, unlike the rest of Sri Lankan guesthouses that is written down in the lonely planet. Please keep it this way!

Mc. Leod inn is a Decent , budget Accommodation @ Kandy ..... ... This place is good for budget travellers who like to be in value of your money type accommodations, near-by is the beautiful range of hills at walking distance for your pleasure. Food is available for the guests.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Lovely guesthouse up on the ridge, has a large balcony with views over the whole lake at Kandy. Great place to sit with a book and cup of tea in the evening. Guesthouse owners were very helpful with advising on local transport, arranging taxis, what to do in the area etc. We went for the room with a view over the lake which was incredible. Really great value, highly recommended.
