We only chose this place because it was the cheapest we could find. But it certainly didn't live up to similar guest houses of the same price range in Sri Lanka. The room was depressing and is in dire need of a complete refit. There's mould around the window, the mattress looks like it has just been pulled out of... More

Nice place to stay in Nuwara Eliya, the manager went out of his way to help us when the internet stopped working. The rooms are clean, though there are quite a few mosquitos so bring your repellant as there are no mosquito nets. The one gripe we had when staying here was the manager interfered with our organisation of a... More

This place needs to taken in the context of its price. It likely one of the cheapest hotels to stay at in Nuwara Eliya, so you have to accept that there will be some compromises. That being said you get free WiFi, hot water and a great friendly staff if you stay here. Neal was amazing. I didn't want to... More

The Victoria inn is well located in Nuwara Eliya, unfortunately that is the only good thing that I can state about the place. The hotel is run down and need of modernization. The staff are well meaning but totally incompetent, simple things like ordering a beer took 40 minutes and when they delivered the beer it was warm. The staff... More

We just spent 2 nights at Victoria Inn. Location is good right in front victoria park. However, hotel desperately needs a soft renovation even to Sri Lankan standards. Compared to other hotels we have stayed definitely not clean enough. We stayed there because Single Tree was fully booked. We booked directly 4x4 through Single Tree and they made sure we... More

We planned for 1 night at Victoria Inn initially. But once we reached here, the staff courteousness made us extend our stay for 1 more night. We were charged 3000 SLR without breakfast, compared much less to the surrounding hotels. Do not expect too much from this hotel at this rate at Nuwara Eliya you will hardly find any other... More

The best thing about the Victoria Inn is its proximity to town. The place has great potential but our room was not clean, damp (I understand a mountain climate is always a bit more humid but when the bathroom door is rotting away) and the owner was far from friendly. Glad to be leaving.

First of all, I noticed how spotless clean the room was. Totally impressed. And the price was very good for me, a solo traveller. And its in a great place, a very quiet place. And on top of that , Neel, was a great source of help in finding me a good deal in traveling to Horton Plains!! Thanks Neel,... More

This was a great place to stay in Nuwara Eliya and possibly the best sleep I had in all of Sri Lanka. It may not be suitable for solo travelers as it is a little expensive for double rooms ONLY, but if you can afford it then it's worth it as the service was almost faultless and the clean rooms...
