We had to change our itinerary and stay Mt. View Cottage just for one night, but it was pleasant stay. If you like having Sri Lankan curry for dinner and/or breakfast, let the staff know a day before you are going to eat. During the dinner, when I had mentioned them that I love dosa, they made us very very... More

We have been here just one night but it was raining so we can't appreciated the view which should be fantastic. The street to arrive is dangerous so it is better to ask a pick up at the city centre. The rooms with balcony are nice, the standard rooms not so much. The staff is really very nice and helpfull.

Had the pleasure of staying here for a night. Located at a high point, it has a wonderful view of Nuwara Eliya. We were woken up by the pleasant sounds of Buddhist chanting from the temple across the valley. The room was clean even if it was a tight squeeze for 3 of us. This was made better by the... More

Do not ever stay here. It was literally the worst experience of our holiday. Grossly overpriced, basic accommodation, freezing cold, shabby furnishings, terrible dinner cooked by the owners' grandad, no alcohol and very weak wifi. It'd be better described as a hostel.

The view from the massive room window is really great, but you have to work for it. Walking up is not easy. It is probably the highest located guesthouse in Nuwara Eliya. It is great value – go for it. The rooms are large and well maintained. Blankets are provided due to cold temperatures in the region. However, better air... More
