Went there for a day and place seems to be ok. We were not in the place at the day time. Far from the city and there prices are different from their Web site. Road access is not good. Little or No space for two vehicles... Room was ok but is not super quality. Our room door lock got stuck... More

I stayed here with a group of friends in August 2014. We were 12 people, so we booked the entire house for one night. And already upon arriving we all really regret that we didn't stay longer! The house is really beautiful with large rooms, comfortable beds and warm blankets (which you need in Nuwara Eliya!). Wasantha, who runs the... More

Nice accomodation, good room and good food . After we ordered food the owner went to the market ....after about two hours we got the food without information before . Very cold there in night time. The prices everywhere in Sri lanka for accomodation are much to high for what you get, as well in relation to other asian countries.

Wasantha, the manager, is super kind, always helpful and ready to explain much more than what concerns his hotel, hence getting around Nuwara Eliya, organising or even joining and leading the trip to neighbouring places like Horton Hights etc. Exceptionally good food at the bungalow (actually little hotel). The bungalow is at the hill, overlooking the city, offering wonderful sights... More

Stayed here for 4 nights (Dec 2014) and absolutley loved it! Wasantha and Chithra are so lovely and kind even looking after my friend when she was ill. Great advice on the area and what to do and amazing true Sri Lankan cooking! Great hot showers, warm blanket on the bed, fire, nice social area and just a general cosy... More

Wasanatha was a great host, organised everything for us with a smile during our stay and gave us lots of useful tips and history of the area. Good rates in a large house on the hill with a homely feel with a nice view over the town. The rooms were slightly dated but charming. Great food, plenty of tea and... More

I was been here on May 2014 and the host is very friendly and helpful for any of your problems on travelling. The view of this house is really great and every room is clean and comfortable. One day the host invited me to join his family dinner and talked a lot of his experiences about this guest house. A... More

We called a day in advance to ask of there were any rooms left and the price (3500 LKR with breakfast he said at the telephone). We arrived at the place and got a room. The location is far out of the centre, so very time you need a tuktuk to get somewhere or to eat. As we asked at... More

The host was very friendly and helpful for organising things. The food is good and will be cooked under your noes in the huge living room/kitchen/dining room. The house was a bit humid although that was due to the season. Our room and especially bathroom could do with being freshened up.

We stayed at King Fern Bungalow for 3 nights. We had a rocky start when we found out that our shower was broken. But Wasantha made sure that the electrician came in that night to fix it so we could have a hot shower. He is very concerned for the satisfaction of his guests, but make sure you ask for... More
