To be honest I would not recommend this place. Not at all! The only thing I like was the wooden restaurant with small fire place but that's it. I called there in advance to check availability and price up. The men asked how many people are we and when I said I am alone,he told me it is 1000 Rp.... More

This was the worst place we stayed in our 2 week trip in Sri lanka ( we are used to normal guesthouses of 2500 rupees)!! The management was super unfriendly, rooms were very dirty and dirt came out of the toilet everytime it was raining (75% of the time in nuwara eliya). I wouldn't recommend this place at all!

King Fern Cottage is a great opportunity for a bit of luxe on your budget travel. It is located near to Nuwara Eliya City Centre, easy walking distance. The Cottage itself is located very beautifully over small streams and the interior is designed with wood and glass - very cosy. The room itself was big, with a comfortable bed with... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere at King Fern Cottage. The design feels as if you are in an expensive jungle lodge (lots of wood, stream flowing past, roaring fire in an evening) but actually the location is very convenient on the edge of town. Each room had an individual design and was spacious. The bathroom was adequate - the beds... More

We stayed a couple with three children, a very nice place, very special atmosphere, the design of the place is really nice, the little stream that crosses in a guest house, very relaxing, the staff and the owners are very nice, and of course the rooms are very nice and clean, highly recommended

This place was a perfect, really peaceful and the staff were really nice. The glass windows from the floor all the way over the ceiling is so cool - it's like staying in a treehouse! The food was good and it was in a good location, easy to walk around town from here.

From the moment we arrived we were delighted by our cosy treehouse amongst lush green surroundings. We loved Chulan's charismatic personality. He and his staff go above and beyond to ensure you have a pleasant stay. Great value for money, sensational hosts and relaxing tranquil environment. What more could you want in nuwaraeliya :-)

Stayed here 2 nights in a very comfortable room. It was clean, fresh linen and lots of needed blankets. Our room had a private little porch with a stream running underneath and a view of trees and shrubbery. The staff were pleasant and helpful. It is located awhile away from the main town but it is an easy walk. Really... More
