We arrived in the rain and dark and were welcomed very warmly. The lounge was very nice and comfortable with carpets and a fireplace. We had a nice dinner there and felt really well taken care of. It also has a really nice atmosphere in the evening with nice music. But 2 points minus: the rooms are really dark and... More

We stayed at king fern for three nights in early September. I emailed and called before hand to arrange stay. Unfortunately whilst the manager kindly text me whilst I was on train to ask my arrival time, I didn't see it so wasn't aware of the free shuttle from rail station. On arrival we found the place to be lovely,... More

The room we stayed in was very very basic. After waiting for our room to be ready we arrived back to our room and the door was open which meant a lot of bugs got in and it had our bags in there so anyone could have got in and taken them. The wifi was not working during our stay,... More

We stayed two nights at King Fern Cottage and loved it. A running stream runs through the centre and around the guest house setting the relaxed and cool tone. The fit out is funky and relaxed. We were collected and dropped back to the station in a fitted out open air Jeep, very cool! Staff were fantastic and fun, special... More

We booked another hotel that said at the last minute that they had no room. We called King Fern and since they had no room, they found us a hotel in 10 minute at 8pm. They brought us there for free, it was a nice hotel also. We then went for dinner at King Fern and it was really good.... More

I stayed three nights on this cottage. Actually I left my mobile phone in the train at Nanoya station. Manager and guide Mr.Chanaka helped me so much. Mr.Chanaka taked me to the police station and explained and made document instead of me, because I can't speak SInhara. I felt lonely and miserable when I lost mobile phone. because I put... More

When arriving at the cottage, they told us that someone with the same name canceled their booking so they did not have a room for us anymore. Only a cheap and not appealing room which they normally don't sell I think. They told us that a friend of the same company had a room for us and they brought us... More

This guesthouse is really quirky and feels like you're sleeping in a treehouse and for that alone was worth a visit. Very reasonably priced too. We got two rooms in the guesthouse and one was perfect but the other was a little cold and felt a bit damp so make sure to bring a good pyjamas! The food was nice... More

This place is located on St. Andrews Road which is about 12-15 kilometers from the Nanu Oya station (the nearest train station to Nuwara Eliya). Their staff usually picks up people who have booked rooms in advance at the guest house. The place has a very relaxed vibe to it and the interiors are quite well done up. The seating... More

What a lucky find. We absolutely loved our stay at King Fern - beautiful glass/wooden/leafy hidden away gem. It was particularly cold during our stay but the roaring fire in the evening and thick blankets on our beds meant that we were not bothered. Only a two-to-five minutes walk away from the town center although the hotel offers everything you... More
