Stayed at Ceybank for one night with the family. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Food is average as well. My mom couldn't climb stairs frequently so they were helpful in providing room service for her. The rooms were spacious, but smelled of old property. The poster beds creaked everytime we made a small move!!! As a result we couldn't sleep... More

You can see how beautiful the rooms and the building used to be, but unfortunately, now it's just overpriced for what jou get (we paid €70). Furniture is old and here and there in need of maintanance. There is a small elektric fire you can use in your room so that's ok. Breakfast was ok but not great, more than... More

This is an excellent place when you need to spend time with you family with little more privacy especially when it is holiday season. Good location, easy to access, but for sure it needs more maintenance and attention. Prices are reasonable for what they offer and may be could do better with a slight increase of rates. Food has a... More

This is an excellent location, very close to all Nuwara Eliya attarctions. This is a very old building belongs to colonial era. Very friendly and helpful staff. Don't expect star class hotel experience, but you can get more than what you pay for. Ideal for local visitors and even foreigner who want to experience Sri Lankan people and culture more... More

We stayed at Ceybank Rest last Saturday 13th June 2015. This place needs a renovation so badly. Rooms are spacious but quite average. Bathrooms are not that clean. Sink was broken and the tap was leaking. They have put more effort to maintain the garden than cleaning the rooms. They don't have fixed heaters in rooms so we had to... More

To say that his hotel has seen better days would be an understatement. The arrival is promising, with a lovely building and garden. The reception is just about OK with a likeable colonial feel. The rooms however are a total disaster. Run down, shabby and grotty. Bathrooms more so, especially as there was no hot water on the night I... More

I spent one night in this hotel. The room was OK, shower good, and I had a nice pasta meal delivered to my room. BUT.....open getting into bed, felt some crawly things. Luckily there was a second bed in the room so I hot-footed it into that bed to sleep. After getting home however, and unpacking my suitcase and clothes... More

We traveled to Nuwaraeliya on 15th May 2015 and we decided to have dinner at the Ceybank Rest. We were not thought to stay at this hotel as we had already booked another hotel in Nuwaraeliya (Not far away from this hotel). However, we did not find comfortable with the bungalow that we booked. So, we decided to hunt bungalows... More
