Stayed for two nights and had a very comfortable stay. Lovely comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Added advantage of having a 24hr restaurant. Nice place to relax and the buffet spread was excellent.

We spent two nights at the Grand Hotel, and were very well looked after. The staff are exceptionally courteous, helpful, accommodation and never short of a smile or inquire about how were were or how our day was going. Arguably, the best staff of a large Sri Lankan hotel I have been to. This extended from most of the restaurant... More

We stayed in the hotel in May 2015. This is a beautiful British era hotel with so much beautiful interior & exterior. If you stay in this hotel, you will feel like you are in British time enjoying elegant service from hotel staffs. Room is quite ok with a clean bathroom. The interior of the hotel reminds me about the... More

We stayed there with our 3 kids for 2 nights in April. Our stay at the Grand Hotel was a great one. It had spacious rooms, nice settings and atmosphere, lovely garden, very nice and helpful staff, and a good variety of restaurants. The only thing that I believe could be improved is the condition of the toilets.

The whole town of Nuwara Eliya is not something you'd expect to find in the hill country of Sri Lanka - it's known as Little England for very good reason. The Grand Hotel is a formal colonial residence, and has retained its atmosphere. The rooms are a little jaded, but the service, food and 'pub' are fantastic. Do pay a... More

The Grand Hotel is an old colonial type hotel in the middle of Nuwara Alliya town. Set in the middle of a lovely garden and very close to the Golf Club, it has a lot a picturesque sounding that reminds you of an era gone by. The rooms that we took were among the largest and was very nice double... More

Our room was a Junior Suite which was great. Its been newly renovated and it has a nice terrace and everything in it... More

I noticed that the reviews from families were generally good. Probably the biggest reason for it is the spacious rooms. There are around 140 rooms of 3 types. Deluxe, Junior suites and Presidential suites. We stayed in the Deluxe and it plenty of space to spare despite the additional bed and a baby-crib. As most of the reviewers noted, it... More

It is a very old colonial era hotel. Rooms are large but the bathrooms are very small. The shower enclosure is extremely small. Do not drop the soap on the floor... you will not be able to pick it up. The hotel has a really nice bar and wine bar. Beautiful pool (snooker) tables. The grounds and gardens are really... More
