We had heard horror stories of accommodation in Nuwara Eliya, and were pleasantly surprised. This place is clean and service is OK, but that's about it. I don't think there's a lot of good hotels around in Nuwara Eliya in general though. Dinner and breakfast were OK, but not special. There were hot water and warm blankets, but we were still quite cold at night.
The location is very good (close to park and centre).
