This is cute little hotel in heart of Nuwara Eliya. Among thousands of properties, I finally selected this hotel because of the location, price and good communication. Rooms are spacious, well furnished, has cable TV, a safe, a fridge and a very good bathroom with uninterrupted hot water. Staff is very friendly, caring and attentive. We booked 2nights half board basis. English breakfast is excellent. Their Chinese dinner is average but the second day Western dinner is delicious. I recommend to order Western for dinner. Fruit juices and soups are very good too. Hotel has a well maintained beautiful Garden, a cute English pub and well furnished and decorated interior. We are well satisfied for the price we paid and I definitely recommend the hotel for family and couple stays.

My wife and I stayed at this British styled Glendower Hotel in N' Eliya , from 18 to 20 September 2020 with some of my school friends. It was a very pleasant and a homely stay I would say. The staff was very courteous and treated us very well with some good food. Their GM Mr. Malcolm was always helpful and personally looked into the needs of all in-house guests. The Hotel is also very clean , all floors well carpeted with large rooms with very beautiful décor. The washrooms also very colonial type and clean. We take this opportunity the Thank Mr. Malcolm, Milan and the rest of the team for looking after us well.
