The Hill View Bungalow is a 20 minute uphill walk from town, but the accommodations are comfortable and affordable. Due to a mix up on my end, I arrived a day early, and no rooms were available. The owners kindly offered me their own bedroom for the night. The dinner and breakfast are a bit more expensive than the options... More

We have stayed there for one night only. Good location but the place itself wasnt really anything special. Cheap sleepover. Bathroom was dirty, no towels, warm water was warm for 3 minutes only. Not much "View" too. Very basic.

We stayed here mainly because it was pretty cheap and it had positives and negatives. When we booked we asked for a double room with a view and a private bathroom for 4000 rupees a night. When we got there it was two single beds pushed together with a shared bathroom but with a really nice view for 2500 rupees.... More

We stayed at the Hill View Bungalow 1 night. When we arrived to the bus station in Nuwara Eliya we were approached by Wijihta, the owner of Little Heaven (also on TA). As we did not want to stay at Little Heaven he showed us some alternatives in the area, first Chez Allen, then this. The room was ok with... More

Me and My girlfriend stayed for three nights in this lovely and intimate little guesthouse located on the hillside with a beautiful view over the town. The friendly staff, lead by the ever so nice Mali, helped us to maximise the stay in Nuwara Eliya by organizing trips and advantures. On top of that the food Mali cooked was superb,... More

If you are looking for a budgetary room in Nuwara Eliya, here can be a right choice to stay. The owner is quite helpful to arrange the journey when you would plan to the other city. He can plan the journey, transportation, even the guesthouse of your next stops. Just remember to bargin a reasonable price for yourself.
