It´s true what some other people already wrote here (unfortunately just read it when it already was too late). We were backpacking almost 3 weeks all around Sri Lanka in August and September without any problem except for this hotel. We arrived by train at Nuwara Eliya, and had not booked an accomodation. Some locals reccomended us Chez Allen and... More

We arrived in Nuwara Eliya not knowing where to stay and ended up staying at this place because the weather had taken a turn for the worse and we didn't fancy getting sodden in the rain. From the decor to the people running the place, everyone looked terribly seedy. The person who picked us up from the bus was incredibly... More

When we arrived the family didn't expect us, we make a reservation the day before but the didn't see it. The family is friendly. We had a small room in the back of the house. We asked if there were rooms with some beter view, but that was not possible. The room was cold and it was not possible to... More

this guest house is welcoming and the modest rooms very comfortable. The hospitality from the Hostess and her very helpful son was friendly and supportive. Meals were tasty,It was enjoyable to be in a small dining room conversing with other travellers and hear their tales of travel in Srl Lanka. In brief, a friendly and homely place to stay and... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Chez Allen for one night. I was immediately struck by the friendliness of the host family. We mostly dealt with a very well-mannered, accommodating young man who served us some great local tea and was highly informative about Nuwara Eliya and Sri Lanka. Rooms are spacious with an amazing view of the mountains. Bed... More

Stayed in Chez Allen for one night whilst visiting Newara Eliya. The room itself was basic and clean altough had no moz net or a/c although luckily we didn't need it them that night. The location of the house is good with great views across the hills although it did prove a little difficult to find at first. It's up... More

We booked 3 nights at ''chez Allen'' and paid in advance by Agoda. We were very disappointed by the house and the rooms regarding the price we paid (2rooms at 45$ each): lot of humidity or moisture spots on the roof, stained bed sheets with holes, only a thin old plastic cover on the ground. The main hall is decorated... More

Allen and his wife are very nice hosts. We stayed for two nights, one of which we left early in the morning at 5.30am to go to Horton's Plains and Allen's wife prepared us a packed breakfast to take on the trip (very toast & bananas, but I really appreciated that she got up early just for us!). The rooms... More

Rooms are very comfortable, with a big bed and clean bathroom. The food isn't spectacular, but at least breakfast is free and you can ask for a refill of your tea/coffee anytime. Malika, Allen's wife, was a gracious hostess and we felt very well taken cared of. The brother, Patrick, was also our tuktuk driver for our three days stay.... More
