The trouble with having a generous lonely planet review and charging way over the odds is that everyone will be disappointed. This is a basic, budget stop that should be charging a fraction of the price and then it's guests would be happier. We had no hot water, no wifi, slept 2 to a (slightly damp) bed, the kettle plug...

The views are stunning, however that's it. Superficially the cantilevered hotel looks impressive, once inside it doesn't take long to notice the tired state of this hotel. The rooms are a good size and there are the bare bones here to make this hotel work, unfortunately the uncleanliness and lack of attention to detail makes staying here an unpleasant experience....

We stayed in this hotel in September,2014 for one night.The booking was easily done online and i would like to appreciate their service in that aspect.It was a crowded time in Nuwara eliya. They.They gave us a Super deluxe room for a discount price,but the price is not worth the facilities and hotel conditions.The hotel is old fashioned,but comfortable.The rooms... More

We travelled there as a couple. The place is located at the deadend of the road. Access roads are bit narrow. Seems like a old bungalow or a house was converted to a hotel. Old furniture and wall everywhere. We stayed at room 101 and it doesn't have a continuous hot water supply. Cable TV was not working during our... More

I would give Tea Bush 3.5* if Tripadvisor allowed half points. We stayed for two nights in one of the hotel's deluxe rooms, which is in a separate building and not part of the historic older bungalow. The room was clean and well equipped, but was really small. The room contained a very very large bed and as a consequence... More

The website makes the hotel look much nicer and off the beaten path than it is and is misleading. We left after one night. The staff is the best part of the hotel; the restaurant too isn't bad, the outside isn't bad, but the lobby areas and room itself were hostel-like. The room smelled like mildew, furniture was old, and... More

Looked nice from the outside and the staff were very helpful. Location is also excellent. Unfortunately in our view the Teabush Hotel is overpriced. We paid c. £70 for a triple room (but it was clearly a double with a single bed added). The double bed was excellent but the single bed was broken and needed to be replaced (which... More

this is a historic hotel atop the hill overlooking nuwara eliya. the rooms are a little dated, even though they said it was the newer one. the room is small but quaint and provided all the necessary amenities, even free wifi. the customer service was great and the service at the restaurant was perfect. would come again
