Nice little cottage with chimney in the community room. It is a little walk from the center but it is located at a hill with nice view. Nice hot water, nice water pressure in the shower. Over all it was very cold in Nuwara Eliya and there was no heating in the room. But that's common in Sri Lanka. So... More

The weather in July was cold and damp, and in rooms without heating they were too, but not sure what else you could expect for the price. The owners were fabulous, lots of cups of tea, extra blankets. You need a room in the main block, so you can easily use the lounge, which has a fire and wifi. Good... More

The guesthouse itself is really nice, good view, nice rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Nuwara Ellya is a nice little town to walk around but the weather there was not nice, as most people say, cold and damp, and rained all the time when we were there, but it's not the guesthouse's fault. Locals say it rains most time, so... More

We stayed here 2 nights, but wanted to leave the next day (but could't because of sickness). Our superior room was on the 2nd floor and had 3 window doors from which a cold draft came in. We slept under 3 blankets. The bathroom was smelly and also were the towels (which weren't dry the next moning, coz of the... More

Nuwara Eliya was the place we would have mind missing on our journey. We were there in July and it was very cold and rained continuously. Sherwood Cottage is well away from the center (which is not very funny when it rains) and the place did not live up to the nice review on TripAdvisor. The rooms were very cold... More

The location is good. The staff seemed nice, but I was only there one night. They did not show us how to turn the hot water heater on and we were not able to get the switch to work, so we were not able to take a hot shower, which was a bummer. Make sure to ask for an extra... More

We arrived after a tortuous bus ride from Candy that had more hairpins than my mums beehive. (Take the train, it's awesome). We called Mishan from the bus stop and gave the phone to the tuk tuk driver who deposited us at the guest house. Mishan welcomed us and said they would prepare dinner, we didnt need to go out...

This small guesthouse has a beautiful view over Nuwara Eliya. The rooms all have a nice view and en suite bathrooms. It is away from the hectic centre. Only the road to the house is a bit hard to find and not in the best condition.

Nice clean and friendly, though high up on the hill. We did have to pay for driver accomodation and food, at a lower rate. The breakfast we ordered was very nice though. they are building a new place next door, so in a year or so, this could be very nice indeed. The views over Nuwara eliya were amazing!
