“Basic B&B”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

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).

The location of the hotel is very good, close to the park and grand hotel - but Nuwara Eliya is not very big.
The room we got was a bit damp (i think this is a common problem in Nuwara eliya since it is such a wet place). The sheets and bathrooms were not very clean either though.

Service was reasonably good, they have breakfast take away packages for when you go on a Horton Plains tour in early morning and breakfast in the hotel was also nice.

All in all we didn't expect much for the price we paid, since NE in general is quite expensive, but we've had much better places in SL.

Spent there one night. The staff was very friendly. The room was fine, excellent shower with lots of hot water. We even hot extra sheets and blankets at night. Breakfast was basic like every other place in SL. I would recommend that place and would stay there again,

Room: clean, spacious enough. Friendly staff, very good food, convenient location.
I can confidently recommend this GH.
When you're sitting in the dining room, you see very clean kitchen through the door. It always says something :)
Confidently recommend this GH for any class of travelers.

a driver took us to this guest house and we stayed here for 1 night.
the rooms were damp and both towels and sheets were used ones.They have not changed any of it from the previous night.We saw hair on the pillows and sheets.We had to stay the night here as it was really late and cold.
the room was smelly and very dark.
definitely not a place to stay if you want clean rooms.
the price was ok and affordable but we have stayed in guesthouses which offers you better service for cheaper rates.

Our driver bought us here after an issue with another guest house. My friend and i were really impressed with value for money. We stayed one night, ate both dinner and breakfast in-house both of which were delicious. Beds were comfy, tv had good reception and shower had hot water. Definitely recommend to the budget traveller! Oh and they accept visa and mastercard - a rarity for guest houses.
