My wife and I spent a night at the MountView Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Laurence the owner is a very friendly and interesting man who contributed to the experience. He made a pot of tea and brought it to our room on arrival. The hotel is a little difficult to get to and not very well signed but... More

We stayed only for a single night at MountView cottage. However, it should be noted that the access to the hotel was so bad and the road to the hotel could accommodate only one vehicle at a time. but, it's not a fault of the hotel. Then the staff was really helpful and the breakfast was also nicely prepared and... More

An acceptable hotel and we stayed for 2 nights. The staff were good and concerned. We arrived late night and staff made sure we were comfortable. Very cold in night (winter season) and no heaters available. The mountain view is available only for few rooms, choose accordingly. The breakfast was included in the booking. Quality of food was okay but... More

Very cheap, nice room and great view. The food was really not delicious, and is a big downside when the hotel is outside the city. The room smelled damp, and everything felt a bit moist. Overall good for what we payed,but the food really was a let down.

This hotel is nothing fancy, but it's perfectly acceptable. The view is beautiful, which for me is one of the main reasons to visit Nuwara Eliya in the first place. Our room had a nice little balcony where we could have enjoyed the view had it not rained most of the time. Breakfast was good, we got both English and... More

The rooms in this place are alright and clean. The gentleman in charge was just so friendly and kind. Sadly our boiler broke down. The manager offered access to another shower but we just braved the cold water. The accommodation is in the vicinity of a Buddhist temple so the chanting at 5 am can be a nuisance for light... More

This is the coziest place to be in Nuwara Eliya. The location and the scenery are wonderful (you can have your breakfast overlooking the tea plantations). The 2 km walk uphill are definitely worth. Otherwise there is always the possibility to hire a tuc-tuc (very cheap). The host has a trusted tuc-tuc driver who is very reliable and a really... More
