It's my first time in Nuwara Eliya. The place is cool,lovely atmosphere. But I arrived Galway Forest Lodge, I can tell this is an old hotel and hasn't been refurbish for quite sometime. The room smells old -- carpet, table, bed, etc looks old. There is a difference between old and being rustic -- and this is old. The lousy... More

I stayed at Galway Forest Lodge for two nights and found it really pleasant and enjoyable. Room: My room was on the second floor and faced the main road, across which was a farm growing vegetables. The room is cosy and nicely furnished, with three plush armchairs and a table by the window. The room comes equipped with a flat-screen... More

Nice hotel with decent little rooms. Clean bathrooms .Entire thing feels compact. No garden( don't make it an issue since anyway you are going out to enjoy the large natural habitat of nuwaraeliya ). Food is great.could not try the bar. Looks ok though. Staff friendly and service is good.

I have stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The stay was good. I have the window view of a small plantation. It was great to see a plantation when you open window. There is no air conditioned in the room because the weather itself in nurawaya was already cold. Was 17degrees at night. The bathroom is very near to... More

We stayed as a large group. The rooms were spacious and the breakfast plentiful. The swimming pool was well serviced. The downside to this stay was the open air party that was held in the middle of the grounds, with beating drums until after midnight - very off putting. When I called reception, there was no indication that it would... More

This is a simple but comfortable lodge hotel and, having read through some of the earlier reports, must have had some renovations and a clean-up. We found it to be clean and the room was a good size, with everything we needed except a kettle and a few tea bags. It is not that far away from the town and... More
