Delicious。店主人很好,景色也很美,可以看到努握勒城市的全景,还会坐中国菜,非常好的味道,店铺还在装修,以后可以有22间房子',非常美,视野辽阔。价格也很实惠,明天去霍顿平原徒步,还可以打包便当。房间非常满,真的很不错,彩色很好,有许多菜,每个人都可以吃到可口的饭菜,房间的价格在高峰期是6500卢比,一般时候是5800卢比。房间很干净,也比较大,非常不错的说。现在正在建2层,会有22间房子,是最高的旅馆。非常物超所值。

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

We are the other couple that missed money. It isn't the large sum but someone is doing it very smart (only stealing euros and very smart only one banknote). I don't know who to blame (son, other guests or owner) but it is strange coincedence that two people was robed at the same time during the probably dinner. To bad... More

Chez Allen is a good place to stay regarding its location. Its only a 10 minute walk away from town (taking the shortcuts!!) and has a great view from the veranda. The family are very friendly and helpful. My wife wasn't well during our stay and they gave her some ayurveda medicine. We also had a great trip via the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Allen was very helpful in arranging a trip to Worlds End and his wife is a very gracious and kind hostess. We ate bfast and dinner in the guest house and they were good, especially the vegetarian curries with rice. The rooms are very basic, as you would expect in a guest house, but... More

Chez Allen is a very pleasant guesthouse with homestay-feeling. From the bus-station or the center of Nuwara Eliya it is a 20 minutes-walk to the guesthouse. If you have heavy luggage, it is better to take a tuk-tuk to get there. From the perfect terrace of the guest-house and the frontfacing rooms you have a superb view over the city... More

Older son is very entrepreneurial,keen and up to his job. The only less exciting thing is the room (standard double). There is no view and humidity gets to your bones,so... More
