We have crashed in Vishmi's Rest for overnight stay to continue our journey home after exhausting days of travel. We just needed peace and sleep. When I called the manager gave me exact directions to reach the premises. Though situated away from town centre its not very far provided you have a vehicle and you can reach main attractions in...

OK, I read all the reviews before choosing to stay here for one night, as a transit stop to our next location. Value for money? Well, considering we paid less than $40, I suppose the fact that you get a meal with a bed is a good thing. Other than that, the room was EXTREMELY damp, and cold, and smelled... More

Far from the town center; fairly close to the lake and the race course with ... nothing much to see. We were the only customers at the hotel. Warm welcome and nice room. Two men in charge which may explain why it lacks a little charm and cleanliness. Cheap and good rice and curry for dinner (+ a large beer... More

We stayed only 2 nights, and had a very good experience. It was very, very quiet at night, and our host cooked us a lovely breakfast, and was very helpful and friendly all round. The rooms are very spacious and pleasant.....a good place for those who like a quiet place to stay. I would stay here again - recommended, thank... More

The holiday bungalow in the heart of the central highlands of Sri Lanka, home to the famous "Ceylon Tea". Its 5 Min Away from Central Town So its much more calm. The room was very clean and very spacious with hot water. The staff including the manger were extremely helpful, Try Roti for breakfast :-) Delicious food always,

We stayed there one night in mid-August and were very impressed. The room was very clean and very spacious with hot water. The staff including the manger were extremely helpful, and would answer any queries giving their advice on matters generally i had about travelling around Sri Lanka. The chef there makes excellent home made curry too, very impressive! Overall... More

The room was cold damp & smelt badly of mould & durian. The bed was damp & even an electric heater couldn't warm us or the room (for which we were charged an extra 3500 rupees). The manager told me the bed was damp because of the weather...therefore perfectly acceptable? After smelling the kitchen & the rancid butter on our... More

Nuwara Eliya is a great place to visit if you are going to SL. This rest house was a good price and as such is relatively basic. For the price though you get a clean room and ensuite with boiling hot water and friendly staff who make great food.

This is a new guesthouse and is the best guesthouse we stayed in Sri Lanka, beating some 4-star hotel we stayed before in Sri Lanka during our trip. The room is spacious with a comfortable & soft bed. The hot water works perfectly well which is essential in the cold weather in here. Service staff is attentive to our needs.... More
