We stayed in a double room upstairs with balcony doors which opened out on to the most beautiful view of Nuwara Eliya. Was very clean, with a warm shower and really friendly hosts. They put out afternoon tea for us with biscuits when we arrived. We also had a curry for dinner which was delicious. One thing to watch out... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed there 2 nights. We arrived really late in Nuwara Eliya and our taxist recommended us this place. The room was ok, but it was really cold. We didn’t expect such a cold climate in the Hill Country. The towels had special smell, but they were clean. The special smell of towels was not a problem... More

Reasonable rent, free pick-up service from the town centre, free welcome tea and cockies, and nice and friendly staff etc. To be honest, this hostel was really good, but I suspected that was too good to be true, while I was staying there.... If I had read reviews on tripadvisor before, I would have enjoyed my stay there....

Beautiful house with an even more beautiful terrace.The owners were very friendly and helpful. There are rooms with a shower on the second floor and 3 rooms with shared shower and toilets on the first floor. The rooms were very clean and you can really feel at home there since there is a living room. Sadly there is no heating... More

We hired Rajith, the owner, as our driver (unfortunately we were bound by a reservation at another hotel in Nurelia). He picked us up in Kandy, drove us to Horton Plains, and took as down to Midigama over the following days. Rajith is a very responsible and experienced driver, and is very reliable. His Geely is brand-spanking-new. Highly recommended! His... More

Spent three nights here. The room was very clean with excellent hot shower! The view from the house is awesome and you can enjoy it better if you manage to get the upstairs rooms with the balcony. We would have love to stay in one of them however at the time we stayed they were already occupied. The family hosts... More

We stayed two nights at the Hill View. It's not the cheapest choice in town but you don't get such nice views for free... ;-) Try the sri lankan breakfast! If you need a tour guide ask for Santhe! He's the man! Don't go to the teafactory on weekends. No production - it's not worth it.

Travelled there in a chilling rainy day with a friend of mine and a tuk tuk driver took us to this place. Honestly speaking, the house itself looks clean and decent. We lived in the downstairs double room and paid two thousand 500rs. The window of balcony door is broken so the winds went through for a whole night which... More

The food was excellent, the rooms were kept very clean and neat! Me and my wife stayed here, and I have to say, everything was just excellent! The management here is very friendly and cordial! I recommend any future guests to this area to stay here!

Travelled Sri Lanka for 2 months at the beginning of 2013. After a horrible start in Nuwara Elliya it was an absolute blessing to find accommodation at this lovely guesthouse. The downstairs rooms had a communal bathroom but the upstairs rooms were all ensuite. The rooms were very clean and the food was fantastic! It had a great communal feel... More
