Only stayed here one night and would have liked longer. Arrival by tuk tuk and greeted warmly by Ramoni and Grace. We had the loft bedroom and full use of living area - all home comforts catered for. Best sleep ever in comfortable bed with very much appreciated hot water bottle.

Dear staff at Sincere Wilderness, Your guesthouse in Nuwara Eliya looks terrific on the website. I am travelling with my husband and two kids (both 8 years old) to Sri Lanka for two weeks, and we were looking for a room for two nights (arriving on the 29th Oct). It was 25 years ago I travelled in Sri Lanka so I am very excited. I was wondering, does it work to stay the for of us in your "cottage"? If so, what would that cost? Moreover, do you have WiFi, and how far is it to 'town' and to the common trekks from your homestay? Looking forward to hearing from you, Best, Eva Erman, from Sweden
Dear Eva and Family we are honored and privileged to hear from you in this site, we love to host you, also to meet you in warm welcome, yes we can give our cottage for you, its 50US$ with breakfast children free, no added taxes wifi, hot water,,10 minutes walk to city center Best regards, Lal,Grace and Romeni

"Great family location"
"There is only one room."
"There is only one bedroom but it has facilities for a third person to sleep in the main living room (I think!)"
"There is only one appartment, so book well in advance"
"We would have stayed longer had the Sincere Wilderness cottage been available. Since it wasn't, we ended up moving next door to a very nice room at the King Fern Bungalow and still eating in the evening at the de Silvas'."
