I'm not sure if this hotel put a negative spin on our Nuwara Eliya experience or if the town rubbed us the wrong way first. We got a creepy vibe from the place. The manager (owner?) wasn't very understanding, the waitstaff made us super uncomfortable by asking for money and telling us how little money he made (and this wasn't... More

I don't understand how these people keep this place any longer. Everything is bloody expensive and people have no sense at all. We were said that there is a TV, yes there was one but TV channels were not working. Food is ok, but so expensive for a small amount. Not recommended

First when we got here they told us that all the rooms has WiFi and TVs, but their TVs and WiFi was not working. Also we booked the rooms with breakfast but in the morning the manager said that there are no breakfast for us. When we wanted to leave they called police because they wanted to charge us more....

Horrible experience. Complete mood spoiler to our trip. Bad service and over priced. Wi fi not working. No toilet paper or towels. Water does not stay hot for 2 people to shower. I will not recommend it to anyone .

The owner was so greedy and had no ethics . Initially he was agreed for certain amount and in later he increased the hotel rate . room was dirty with bad smell . Bedsheets were moist even washrooms were not upto the mark. Worst place.

This has to be one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at. Owner and staff may seem friendly, but everything centers around siphoning more money out of guests. Rooms aren't soundproof at all, they shortchange you on everything . By my count, 75% of guests that stayed along with us lodged complaints. Stay away from this place!

Tourists beware. This place is definitely overpriced and unclean. Windows do not lock and the much advertised hot water is nonexistent. There are no towels or basic bath necessities. Lastly, the bed linens smell like they had not been washed in a while. We decided to leave the same night we came.

Though warmly welcomed when we checked in, our stay was doomed every minute after. We were at first overjoyed with an impression of a rustic hotel plus being given a room at the topmost floor overlooking the race course, and, we soon realised how overpriced it was indeed -- walls are made of plywood, hot water was only good for...

Never Go to this place, it’s a Nightmare..... Colling Wood Hotel should be closed for ever, it’s terrible, Food was the worst ever I have ever tested, been a hotelier myself, I was a shamed of this kind of service. Food was cold, no test at all, presentation was nil. Staffs were the same, no idea what was happening around.... More
