As part of our tour this was by far the worst hotel we stayed in. All was very pleasant on arrival with a cold towel and drink, but apart from that there was nothing really positive to say about this hotel. The rooms were a throwback to the 70's, mould around the shower and not draining at all, the beds...

Its situated a bit outta town but its location is least important. The lodge is well maintained. Rooms are large and spacious as well as comfortable. Breakfast offers a decent spread as well... Free wifi is available in the lobby. Just a few tips since its not very well insulated the sound echoes in case of soirees.. and the website...

Pathetic bathrooms fittings and amenities Also the rooms lack any ventilation whatsoever, not even ceiling fans ! All in all a sorry state of...

Very friendly staff cannot help the hotel become a better one. It obviously gets older without any renovation. The area around is beautiful, one of the most wonderful towns in Ceylon but there are many hotels better for sure. The restaurant had quite a decent offering but with no air ventilation we all got very smelly during the dinner. This...

Galway is nice boutique hotel in the hill station of Nuwareliya but tucked away far from city centre.. But the people were very friendly and service was excellent. free Wifi available in the lounge. Mobitel signal was not available. restaurant food was pretty good.

Galway forest lodge appears much better in their pictures than it actually is. Our two night trip in an otherwise beautiful place called nuwara eliya was marred by a hotel that compromised both on quality and service. Basic rooms with decent amenities but not maintained. The room did not have any blankets. When we got them, one of the two...

You have to remember you are in "Little England" and be prepared - we were, but not enough bedding! Having read other reviews, yes the hotel is tired but service was superb. On checking in we were brought hot towels and a pot of tea with biscuits. Dining service was very good as was the food and the rooms were...

it was a compromised stay as we could not get a booking in Kandy or Nuwara Eliya for this date (we stayed for a night only). Bedrooms are basic but with clean toilets & hot water. No replacement arrangement for power cuts. Blankets had worn out edges & need to be replaced. Service was chaotic & slow; however, buffet dinner...

we stayed only one night in this hotel. Unfortunately the only day we stayed there we had problems with hot water and no one to look after the issue. The rooms were decent. Food is just horrible with limited options and not worth a penny. I would definitely not recommend this hotel.

The hotel was reasonable and was fairly clean. The food was good and reasonably hot. There was no tea or coffee in the rooms, but drinks could be bought in the bars. We only stayed for one night and it was adequate. The bathroom was small, but OK. Nuwara Eliya is called Little England, as it is high and therefore...
