Don't ever go to Ashley! Rooms are carpeted but never cleaned so it's dirty. Everywhere is dusty. The so called Assistant Manager was rude. While using internet, he was lifting his legs on the table in front while watching TV. Ordered for tea and the spoon is all wet. Beware in the morning if you want to have coffee in their garden terrace, the dogs just come barking and howling at you and that even if you scream for help, nobody's around. Gave some clothes for laundry and came back all still wet and white shorts stained! Just stayed for the night and transferred the next day.

We stayed two nights this year and it was not bad at all. Little bit difficult to find the way to the hotel at the first time but when you reach it, it was an excellent view of Nuwara Eliya town and the Gragary lake. The road to the hotel is very narrow, bit dangerous and cannot pass two vehicle at the same time.
The room was nice and we got a room with a lovely view. And the room was clean, clean bedding, clean bathroom with strong hot water. Though the hotel staff is very low, both of them were so friendly. The food is little bit high valued and the dinner we were served was not so good. It is good to have meals in out side than getting them from the hotel.
As a whole Ashley Resort is a very good budget hotel with a friendly staff and very attractive surrounding. Can recommend this to anyone who is looking for budget stay.

Room Tip: You can have food for a reasonable price from a restaurant named 2 Restaurant in the Grand Hotel ro...

this is a place one should avoid. limited staff, poor dinning, fly infested rooms/halls,unsanitary toilets most of the plumbing leaks and/ or drains are blocked.we had to change two rooms on arrival-one due to blocked wash basin the other because toilet outflow was leaking onto the floor and had terrible urine stink.dinner was cold food had to be warmed in microwave oven,promised items were not served.have feeling that items on display from lunch were served in dinner.travel agents book this hotel probably they get hefty commission.

Room Tip: do not select this hotel.

we stopped here for two nights... a mistake. It was priced at over $60 a night so we expected something a little bit special but we certainly didn't get it. its a tumble down / down at heal place generally (broken door handle, tv, some power sockets not working), mould spoors on the bathroom and bedroom ceilings.

The worst part has to be the dogs. There's some kennels outside and the dogs bark all day and all night. The dogs must have a rotor otherwise I have no idea how they eat or sleep themselves!

Also be careful if you don't like walking, its about 2k out of town up a hill.

To give some credit to this place the views over Nuwara Elliya are really good, it was clean, clean bedding, the shower was good (hot and strong) and one of the members of staff was friendly.

It is all really relative to the price, it's worth no more than about 4,000 rupees a night. Having spent the last 7 weeks traveling around India and Sri Lanka this is the first time that I have felt completely ripped off. We've had much better places for much less.

Had we not prepaid we wouldn't even have unpacked our bags.

PS... they charge for WIFI - seriously - in 2012!

We were in Nuwara Eliya on Dec 23rd and 24th 2011. The resort is located at a higher altitude than most of the hotels in this area. Infact I never found any hotel above Ashely...so you can ver well imagine the scenic beauty you are going to witness. There is a small waterfall behind the resort which adds to the charm. The Hotel was good but I think some maintenance/renovation work was in progress. Rooms were not very good but even not very bad. We were out the whole day for sight seeing and were only back at evenings ... so for us it was not very disappointing. Very courteous staffs and the dinner we had on Dec 24th 2011 was superb. Nice place to be for 1 or 2 days.

Horton Plains - Never dreamt that we would be charged an ENTRY fee of around 13,000 Sri Lankan Rupees for 4 Adults and the Jeep. It was a nice 4 hrs walk but a bit of injustice cost wise for other country visitors. Must experience for all who visit Nuwara Eliya.
