We stayed here for 2 nights and it definitely was worth the price. The rooms were spacious and the Manager was extremely helpful and went out of his to way to help us out. We had the choice of eggs / fruits for breakfast. They even were able to pack sandwiches for us when we had to leave early in... More

Finally, I have found the hotel I have been looking for in Nuwara Eliya. The price was surprisingly good. The food was clean and very good. Servise is excellent. It's much more than just an accommodation, it's a home away from home complete with a network of helpful stuff who will look out for you.

Staff is very nice and helpful but unfortunately there is not enough staff to handle everything so the service appears not so good, rooms are expensive for what we get, nothing special, avoid room number 2, location is not good since you need a tuk tuk to go anywhere and the hotel does not provide free shuttle to the city...

We came here on the basis of a very good review in, 'Le guide du routard' but were tres disappointed. The rooms were cold and the heater, having the power of a small hair dryer, provided less heat than the light bulb. The Rock is at the top of a big hill with no transport so it is difficult to...

A small hotel set half way up the hill above the lake. the manager Graham is the perfect host, helpful and friendly with nothing too much trouble, We required assistance with e mails and printing which he was more than happy to arrange. Our room was large, clean and warm which was very welcome as it was rainy and cold... More

This small hotel is cosy and comfortable. It's situated part way up one of the hills from the town centre. The staff are very nice and friendly, the beds ok and the food good. We stayed three nights and would stay there again. A good base from which to visit Hortons Plains National Park and Adams Peak.

I didn't like this place at all. Our room was FULL of flies. There were loads of dead ones on the window sill and the floor. Place also didn't look hoovered. The furniture was supposed to be in a British style but just felt dated. Breakfast was ok. The usual eggs and omelette. Dinner wasn't great either. The waiter at... More

We stayed one night as part of a tour. This place was better than it looked on first sight! The surroundings need tidying up and a lick of paint. Hotel style reception and generally very good service. Spacious room. A proper bar with more than just Lion beer. Breakfast was good: the food at dinner was acceptable, but ordinary. Nice... More
