Avian Breeze
Ranked #11 of 254 Nuwara Eliya B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Very old and cosy atmosphere, feels like your back in the colonial days.
Services very good with friendly staff. The restaurant was serving nice food, the prices were not to high.
If you come to Nuwara Eliya we would definitely recommend that you stay here.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room we'd recommend that you chose a garden room. The rooms in the house are...

Very helpful and attentive staff, good restaurant serving Sri Lankan and Western meals. Ask for the a la carte menu if you do not want the set meal. Meals are freshly cooked, no buffets which is a pleasant change in SL. Clean room with plenty of hot water. We stayed in the Garden Room which was quiet. Some rooms are off the dining area and reception and may be noisier

My husband and I stayed here in December 2013.. We stayed on a HB basis and we have to say the food and service was top quality. The rooms were a bit basic, but the service and the food made up for it. We will certainly return again but book the superior room and stay longer. The staff here were very helpful, efficient and friendly and we had a very enjoyable stay. The hotel is set in beautiful, well kept gardens and the area is very nice to walk out.

Room Tip: Book the Governors suite

We stayed here for two nights as part of a island wide tour. We were travelling with an infant and were staying in the Governors suite, which was large and comfortable. The plus points were the exceptionally attentive and helpful staff. The downsides were the paper thin walls and door which led directly to the dining area. In addition, although there were Sri Lankan food options for the evening, breakfast was the usual western fare. Fortunately our guide arranged for a change and we had some fantastic rotti with garnishes on our final day. Overall not a bad place but probably a little too closeted and noisy if travelling with young children who need to sleep!

A charming and friendly welcome. A comfortable well sized room in what I take to be a new annex. Rather too far out of town for my liking and so difficult to get a sense of Nuwara Eliya in the short time we had there.
I was frozen in the night with just one blanket as the evenings are cold but the staff were quick to provide more bedding for the next night.
I was led to understand that our breakfast would be ready for 7.00 as we needed to leave at 7.30 but we didn't get it until 7.30. And when we returned hungry from our walk our promised lunch wasn't there either! The staff who were different from the night before, looked very blank about all this but to be fair a tasty vegetarian spread was rustled up within 15 minutes.
The first hotel where there hasn't been a Sri Lankan breakfast on offer. So for me a rather dull option of white toast and eggs.
I feel it's a well meaning hotel with most charming staff but it has been very difficult to feel that we ve communicated effectively and that can be most frustrating.

Avian Breeze is great little hotel for the night but is out of the town a bit so it's a bit difficult to leave once dropped there in the afternoon for the night.

Food is beautiful, Sri Lankin and Western - no buffet but 3 course meal.

Rooms are old but clean. Be sure to have pants and a jumper. It gets quite cold at night.

Staff at hotel very good.

Wifi cuts in and out in rooms but fine in dining area.

Don't need more than a night in the area.
