“Wonderful warm welcome”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights in July and visited the tea plantations, Lake Gregory, World's End, the (slightly disputed and newly opened) tallest peak in Sri lanka and even saw some local rugby. The local climate is wet and cooler than much of Sri Lanka but the tea, fires and blankets certainly warmed us up a treat. We enjoyed good breakfasts, hot showers and very detailed directions to anywhere we wanted to go during our stay at Mountview Cottage.

We stayed there because we couldn't get accommodation in any other resort/hotel during our trip to Nuwara Elliya. It is a small 2 star property converted into a cottage. Rooms are small. We felt there were bugs in the bed, but the owner "argued" there aren't any. Everything felt damp and as if it has never been exposed to fresh air of sun-light.

Maybe that is what we could get for the price that we paid. Lesson learnt - book in advance and live in a better property.

We stayed for a night in July 2013. It was a rainy, misty and cold day, only 15°C. The room looked alright at first sight, but turned out to be completely damp and mouldy. We asked for a heater, which warmed the room, but also made you smell the mould really badly. We couldn't open the windows, because we were told it would not be possible to close them again.
The instructions for the warm water were so complicated, I did not dare to take a hot shower and test the capabilities of the anciet boiler. I just wanted to leave the place.
They don't have a restaurant, they have a tastlessly decorated dining room, where you get served some simple food, which was alright.
It might be alright to stay there during the dry season, but I doubt the mould will be completely gone. I'm sure from seeing other reviews here and the replies he will come up with some words to make the place appear in a better light then what I write, and tripadvisor is probably right to assume that someone is tempering with the ranking and the reviews for this place.
I wouldn't recommend staying there, I was glad we drove on to Ella the next day!

Room Tip: We had room 101 on the top floor. As other people wrote before, rooms at ground floor have view on...

This hotel is neither providing accommodation nor allowing drivers to stay in their hotel.it is better to book a room in another hotel for driver and stay in this hotel.They have only five rooms and not up to the standard for the charges collected by them.it is very difficult to reach the place during night time.

Myself and 3 friends stayed here for 2 nights in early June. Sadly the weather was quite bad during our stay but the hotel owner did everything he could to make us comfortable and at home in his lovely guest house.

The service was truly exceptional. Extra blankets, and heater were provided and cups of tea whenever we wanted them which was 4 English girls was a great feature of our stay.

The rooms were large and comfortable and there is a nice view over looking the town. It is set a bit away from the town centre which means its in a quiet spot which we liked. Food is provided in their on site restaurant - I would recommend the curry which was very good.

I would definitely recommend this guest house.

A special thankyou to Lawrence for making our stay so enjoyable. When we arrived it was cold and rainy but Lawrence made a pot of tea for us and brought extra blankets. It was clean and comfortable. A tuk tuk takes 10 mins to the centre and costs 200 rupees. Beautiful views across Nuwara Eliya from the guesthouse. Service with a smile.
