Stayed for 2 nights! A very nice place, quiet, with a beautiful surrounding area.. great for pictures! Bit of a walk up the long flight of stairs but located in close proximity to the town and the bigger hotels! The owners are kind, and even gave us some warm beverages when we returned late at night during a slightly rainy...

We stayed over a week in the family room(s) of the Sherwood cottage. Like other travelers we also noticed a few minor flaws (a dirty shower curtain), but most of all we very much enjoyed the excellent view, the sounds from the village in the early morning, the fast internet (our room was located above the main router) and the...

We were there only for one night. It was a very nice room. Hosts are also friendly and welcoming. There was no heater but we went there for feel that cold climate so it was okay. The only problem was with water geyser since it was limited capacity. It takes around 30mins to heat. So we had to turn on...

I was there in August. It was quite cold (around 10°C), rainy and the window could not even close properly. I slept all dressed and the morning after I had sore throat. The shower curtain was dirty and disgusting. In order to get hot shower you need to turn on the boiler, but after the first shower you have to...

It was the worst hotel experience in our lives. It was so cold during the night as there were no heaters. Even with several blankets I couldn' t keep my daughter warm. So I don't recommend this hotel to families with kids. As we were leaving early the next day ,we asked for tea. But as there was no one...

Cute & comfy cottage in Nuwara Eliya. We stayed in the Attic Room, which has lovely mountains views. It is a bit far from the city center by foot but you can get along easily with a tuk tuk for 100 rs.

Located at apt place, the upper floor rooms provide very beautiful stay. We chose family room despite being just two of us only for the sake of viewing this beautiful city from the top most possible place. Beds were comfortable and staff was friendly. Bathrooms are nicely made. We were there just for a night so it was pretty short...

Brief but very good stay. Can't comment on the views as this was a flying visit, arriving late in the evening then up very early for World's End the following day. However, our room was gorgeous, big comfy bed and the lady who owns the place made us a pot of tea to warm us up from the rain! Only...

Despite booking a deluxe room and paying the hefty off-season price of 6800 rupees per night, this hotel did not convince us. Our room was basic, moldy and did not offer a view. WiFi is limited to the reception area and towels were dirty. The set menu dinner was disappointing and tasted rather stale. The breakfast was the worst we...
