“Great host, wonderful cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Dammika at the Misty hills is a wonderful host and the staff are very attentive and helpful.
The cottage is wonderful and homely, the views from the cottage are spectacular and breathtaking.

The food was to a high standard and very tasty, complients to the chef!

I would definitely go back and stay at the Misty hills, only this time for longer.

Dammika thank you once again and a big thank you to the staff who were great and made our stay very memorable.

Big thank you, be back soon!

Dammika provides highly professional, yet extremely personalized service. The cottage is very comfortable and far more cosy than being in a hotel. Food is excellent and service impeccable. Beautiful location. I would highly recommend Misty Hills to travelers to Nuwara Eliya.

Room Tip: The two front rooms have a beautiful view of the hills

Tucked away in the misty hills of Sri Lanka's Central Province is the stunningly beautiful tea garden town of Nuwara Eliya. Crisp air, rolling meadows, sleepy lake, cool sun - all these make an ideal setting for an idle getawy and no better place than Misty Hills Cottage to savour the experience.

The bungalow was clean and well equipped for a 'home away from home' stay.

Excellent personal attention with very professional service is what made our stay so wonderful.

An excellent BBQ dinner was also arranged at an extra cost and this made it even more special.

The staff were also wonderful - all our meals and personal comfort was well looked after including an evening turn down service with chocolates for those with a sweet tooth.

We would definitely recommend a stay here for people looking a cosy place to stay, with nice views , close to the town but not right in it, and great food and service.

Thanks Dammika and all the staff.

regards

Room Tip: Nicely done up rooms, clean linen and towel were provided.

I don't really know if my experience was typical as I was one of the earliest guests at this establishment, but if it was, you will be in for the treat of a lifetime should you decide to stay here.

Essentially, Dammika has integrated 5-star hotel service with high quality premises and the result is stunning. This place is expensive when compared to typical guest house pricing, although it isn't very much above the local average but when compared to hotel prices, it's a bargain and possibly offers better accommodation and service than all but the very expensive.

Food was excellent. There was no set menu when I stayed there, but I was consulted at breakfast time (Silver Service, incidentally) as to what I might like to eat for the evening meal and at what time, then there it was – perfectly cooked and served by a waiter who would not have been out of place at any upmarket hotel restaurant.

Nuwara Eliya itself doesn't seem to offer much to the uninformed tourist but Dammika and his staff are an absolute goldmine of local information and had I not already committed to other destinations I could have quite happily whiled away an extra 2 or 3 days here.

my partner and i had a truly memorable stay at the misty hills, nuwara eliya. the 4 bedroom cottage was outstanding, fully selfcontained as well as tastefully and immaculatly furnished. the views of the surrounding mountains and tea plantation were supurb. misty hills is a few kilometres out of town, this is an advantage as it was quiet and serene. there is a tuk tuk and driver to take you where ever you want to go, so getting around is no problem. the food supplied was delicious and the service sensational. the owner Dammika has established a 5 star service experience, with the help of his devoted staff members - Sunart and Morelli

we took a driver from kandy, as it was getting late in the day, this was recommended by the owner of "the orchard guest house, kandy", where we stayed the previous three nights - good advise, as well as a terrific place to stay in Kandy.
