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... More

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... More

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... More

The hosts were lovely, very friendly and helpful. There were great views from our room which was warm and comfortable. Technically it is a 10 minute walk into town, but that is down a very steep path. It had been raining heavily when we there and there is no way you could have made it back up that path in... More

Although it seems quite a drive from town, there is a shortcut walking pathway straight to town. The manager speaks English very well. We stayed there for only a night but liked the place a lot. The hot water and thick blankets were helpful, since temperatures could go below 15°C. A tuctuc from nanu oya to the hotel is about... More

We arrived late at night and the hosts are waiting for us. They gave an upgrade to a room with an attic. They very nice and prepared a breakfast for us as well. I feel bad because we are only staying there for one night. I would like to stay here for four days. Thank you so much for your... More

The views were stunning, the cottages were absolutely beautiful with amazing little flowers everywhere - the staff were very friendly and professional. Wifi only worked in the lounge not in the rooms, the bed was actually the most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept in, it was so noisy that when you moved slightly it woke you up!, they also...

Place is clean and good. Have a good view from the rooms and you can watch Nuwara Eliya city from there very well. But lot to improve. They do not offer tea, coffee in room. No TV, Internet (Wi-Fi) Heaters, dryer etc. Most importantly, it seems that they do not have a permanent staff over there to assist visitors. We... More

Have your wits about you on the drive up the little winding road which takes you up the hill out of the centre of Nuwara Eliya. The driveway is also steep and narrow for those with their own transport. However, on arrival you will be greeted by an awesome view of the valley as you look past the steep rooves... More
