This is the first time we've ever left a review for a hotel we haven't stayed in. But, we did check in! The room was below average, not something we're unused to having been in Asia on a budget for the last 15 months. However, what really ticked us off was the owner's or manager's complete disregard for a couple... More

Hot water and Wifi are unreliable and owner\worker uses the saloon to entertain his friends till very late hours. Location is very nice - quite but central and the rooms are fine, only little cold and damp. Good starting point for hikes.

We arrived in Nuwara Eliya with no accommodation booked (probably our first mistake, as there are limited options here for budget travellers), and ended up at Victoria Inn. Our first impression of this place was alright- the receptionist "cut us a deal" and offered us a double room for Rs3000. A clean room with a private bathroom. We however find... More

The Victoria Inn is close to the city centre of Nuwara Eliya and to the Victoria Parc. The rooms are small, the bathrooms are dirty, the water from the shower is only dripping. Wifi didn't work... So, yeah. Ok, if you need a place to sleep, but for 1000 Rupees you can definitely find much better places in Sri Lanka...

We´ve stayed at this hotel for one night, regular price was 3500 Rs, but we squeezed it into 3200 Rs per room, still quiet a lot for such accomodation. Room was ok, we had hot water, wifi worked well. Located close to the park, and approx. 5minutes wlaking distance into the city center.

Unfriendly, dirty, no warm water no wifi even though manager promised. The guy in the reception spoke no english when we complained, but when he wanted money he spoke fluently. Its VERY humid and because of that, water was dripping from the walls (smell of fungus) and the bed was soaken wet. We didnt even stay one night.

We arrived late in rainy Nuwara Eliya and met this guy from the hotel, who took us there with mini van (3 min from bus station). Room was old, but clean. It's not that comfortable for staying several nights. Service was okay, food also okay, if you don't expect miracles for low price this is for you. Not that bad... More

We arrived in Nuwara Eliya later than expected. All the good hotels had no room left. That’s why we slept in the Victoria Inn in Nuwara Eliya. It was a nightmare, it was the worst hotel ever. The staff wasn’t friendly, the room was dirty, there were a lot of insects. The air in the room was very humid and... More

I booked this "hotel" through Agoda and one of the conditions was that there be an onsuite. When checking into the hotel, the bathroom was in the open, to be shared by everyone, including the reception area. The room stank as if there was a sewer running through the room. The room was located on the ground floor and had... More

Should not called a hotel at all. Incompetent hotel manager didn't give us any towels or toilet paper. Food was okay but not beeing worth waiting over 1 1/2 hours for a soup. They also try to make different prices to guests or forget their bookings to give the rooms to other people.
