The welcome drink and snack provided was lovely. The guest lounge had a nice ambience although non-existent wifi. My room had 3 beds, the shower was hot, heavy curtains in the front-facing bay window either made me completely visible to street level or blocked out all the light. The location is central. Loaner umbrellas were available in the lobby. Front... More

We stayed at the Windsor Hotel as our previously booked accommodation was unfit to stay in (Fairlyland Inn). The town was very busy and all the decent accommodation was fully booked so we had little choice and ended up having to stay at the Windsor. The hotel may have been good in its earlier days but it is sadly now... More

Like just about everything in Nuwara Eliya this hotel is overpriced but is a good midrange option. I paid $US84 for a double room that was a little musty but was comfortable with a decent bed and good shower. Buffet dinner was ok and was 2050 LKR which again is expensive by local standards. Very friendly staff and a central... More

Location was very helpful. Food was incredibly overpriced. Wifi was basically non existent. Bathroom maintenance was horrific. The shower is not even a shower but merely a cubical with a shower curtain. Otherwise the room condition was average, do not expect an incredibly clean and comfortable bed. This hotel is okay.

Windsor Hotel was very nice and accommodating. The staff speaks English well and I noticed the staff conversing in German also. The hotel has an excellent menu and food is served in large portions. I recommend any of the available soups on the menu. The rooms are clean. The beds are hard as only thin mattresses are used. The blankets... More

The hotel needs to be upgraded the location is good. Food was not great rooms very bad condition and the bath rooms are not clean. We booked for two nights but only stayed for one night. Staff was ok but the hotel looked haunted and we were the only guest in the hotel.
