This place provides you amazing views.Located at one of the best location in Nuwara Eliya. staff is very polite and helpful. They allowed me to prepare the food for my daughter. The food is not that good. rooms are small but the views from this hotel compensate for it.

Beware very dangerous hotel at night no security no reception nothing. Very very difficult road . No any service . Nothing near to the hotel . All the driver do not go to this hotel you have to walk from the main road. I do not recommend any foreigner even to try this risky hotel

The experience me and my husband had at Mount View Cottage was really wonderful and unforgettable. It took only a few minutes to reach from Nuwara Eliya town.We were warmly welcomed by the friendly hospitable staff and that gave us a homely feeling.The place was so calm and tranquil surrounded by the misty hills.And we could capture an amazing view...

What's not to say about this almost fairytail-like location; Beautifull view, very clean and spacious rooms and friendly and helpfull staff! Worth the money. We also took a trip to world's end, without even asking they proposed to make a breakfast lunchbox for us to bring with the next morning.

Booked a room here via email and got quoted 50 USD for B/B accommodation for two. We paid online using their booking system. On arrival it turned out that "B/B" did not stand for Bed and Breakfast since the price didn't include breakfast. We never found out what the two B's were for because the staff didn't speak that good... More

It was raining a lot and the car couldn't go up the steep hill where the hotel is at. The rode was very slippery. We entered the hotel and it had a very bad smell. The reception is dull and ugly. They showed us our room and it was damp, nasty smells all over the place, carpets wet with humidity... More

A great place to stay. Fantastic views. Great hospitality by Kasun and family. Raghu, who works in the cottage is one tireless soul. He planned and took us to various places in and around Nuwara Eliya. Kept us entertained with his sense of humour. He recommended the Fresh Strawberry house overlooking Gregory lake for strawberries and fresh cream.

This place has a history behind it but it is old with the beddings old and dirty. it has a beautiful surrounding but unfortunately need a a lot of overhaul. Everything you have to ask especially iron and iron table. The price is high for the place and it is not even a 3 star.
