I came to srilanka with my family and we are 9 people in total including 2 kids and i have a special need brother. Intially i was suppose to book the whole package to srilanka as i am very familiar with such things and did it multiple times but my dad had no trust in me and took his so called friend's advice to trust a certain person who makes packages in srilanka and the accommodation was terrible and this hotel was one of the hotels that we stayed at and its terrible , it has no heater , the windows are broken , the bathrooms are so small , rooms are tiny and not clean , there are flies all around the place and the list goes on . At the end don't trust anyone arrange everything by yourself or the outcome will be unpleasant.

Condition is average and clean. I was there in high windy season and it was a nice experience to have a holiday. the place is few kilometers away from nuwaraeliya city and walking distance from gregory park. the place is close to gregory lake and the wind through the lake is very cool. The staff is friendly and the meals also was in good condition. we have booked entire hotel for our trip and enjoyed well

Based on the reviews on tripadvisor we selected this hotel. But be warned by this review. The owner has provided some misleading information. There is no wifi available although it's mentioned on several websites like Agoda. If we had known this upfront we never would selected this hotel. We needed wifi because we needed to plan our trip and without wifi it is impossible. This was however not the most serious issue. The electric boiler in our bathroom leaked water close to the electrical system this caused a serious dangerous situation. The owner however speaks almost no English and he had no solution for it. We therefore decided to move to another hotel nearby and made a complaint to Agoda because of the misleading information and the insecure bathroom. The price quality level of this hotel is out of balance. The comfort level of this hotel justifies in my opinion half of the actual rates per room. If you're not dependent on wifi, you'll find the dated decor and comfort level ok and you'll pay half the price of the actual room rates then probably it will be an ok accommodation. An unsafe bathroom by a leaking electrical boiler however is unacceptable.

Silver Star Inn is a pretty building a bit away from Nuwara Eliya (some 20-25 minutes walk) with a very interesting eclectic interior. At the same time, hotel facilities are extremely basic. The room was not very big, but very cold and moldy. It was actually so cold that it was a challenge to go to the shower, which, by the way, was also quite unattractive. There was no sheet to put under the blanket, so we had to sleep under the bare woolen blanket, as the innkeeper was nowhere to be found in the evening. And on top of that all they seem to turn off WiFi router for the night, as the Internet connection was available only during daytime. The room on the first floor facing front has a nice lake view, but that's about its only positive side. We've left very early for Horton Plains, so I can't be sure about breakfast quality as we've had packed breakfasts. Those were pretty unappetizing. There are 2 roads from the hotel to the town: the one to the left from the hotel provides better views, but goes by a local dump, and the one to the right is cleaner, but doesn't provide any good views. There's also a nice park to the right from the hotel.

the location is out of the way and on the wrong side of the lake. mattress was terrible and hotel has terrible sound insulation (I had to ask the host to keep it down twice after 1am). not particularly clean bathroom. however they were accommodating with dinner and breakfast.
