Today we were booked to stay at Mountain View Villa for 1 night. The road to the Villa was dangerous, our first impression of the outside was it was either a building site or someone had dropped a bomb on the place! No one but builders were there to greet us. After walking down some very steep internal steps We... More

First of all, it was very hard to find it, as it is located on the hill with super narrow road to it and many similar crossing roads, which really confused the driver. Vehicles going to another direction were constantly jamming the road, which was curving through littered areas. No lunch available as 'the cook went home'. We were promissed... More

We had a pleasant 2 night stay at Mount View Cottage in February. The room was very comfortable with a good shower/ toilet and a small balcony overlooking a really nice panoramic view. The food was good and a cold beer was always available. The manager was helpful and jovial and was good enough to organise a van to take... More

To be honest, I am shocked that so far this place has managed to hold a four star rating. When we arrived the guesthouse we saw did not live up to those kind of expectations... it really shook our faith in TripAdvisor. The decor was horrendous - like some sort of mountain chalet from the seventies: clashing patterns, ads for... More

It's a simple but warm place, warm decor and warm people. The inn owner Lawerence is very kind and attentative, who tried to satisfy all our needs. And the room charge is very reasonable. It was very relaxing having breakfast by the window at the dining room.

Compared to cost accommodation in Nuwara Elliya, this guest house can be considered as very good value for money. The guest house keeper Austin Lawrence has been extremely helpful and attentive all our needs. The accommodation seems to be aimed at budget/short term travelers and has just sufficient room for a spacious bed a small table and a chair. The... More

We were really grateful for the recommendation to stay at MountView Cottage. We were greeted by the father of the owner who couldn't have been more welcoming and warm. The public areas, rooms and bathroom were pleasantly decorated and shiny clean. The bathroom was spacious and we had a great shower. We had free wifi and a television. I'm not... More

It was a very enjoyable stay here. It's run by a very friendly and helpful husband and wife. It's a little out of town but it's a short and enjoyable walk in there. There was free wifi too. The rooms are nice and I'd recommend it to a friend.
