“Not a Great Stay for Us!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

This place was very average in our opinion. Rooms were old, bed was not comfortable, had to move rooms twice, food was bland, location was inconvenient. BUT THE STAFF WAS FRIENDLY AND DID THEIR BEST! We were especially impressed with Kasun from the front desk. He was extremely professional and went out of this way to service us. Thanks, Kasun!

This is quite an old building having belonged to the first Prime Minister of Sri Lanka. The room was small, but comfortable. I would describe the standard as budget in the room.
We found all the staff very pleasant and helpful. The manager printed out my boarding passes for me at no cost. They were not fazed by us arriving late after a long drive.
The restaurant was very good. A fixed menu was served for dinner with mainly Western dishes but they were well prepared. Lunch was a la carte and excellent local dishes. We ordered 3 veg curries and rice and they gave us 6 different ones! All delicious and introduced us to things we hadn't tried before.
The hotel is a long way from town, but it is pleasant to walk along the road near the hotel and look at the activity in the vegetable gardens which abound.
The only downside was that our room was not serviced at all during our 2 night stay. We don't mind using the towels for 2 days, but sweeping the floors, taking out the rubbish and making the bed would have been welcome.

Room Tip: The Rose Room is worth requesting as it opens from the garden. All other rooms in the main building...

Our first impressions on arrival were good. The reception from the staff was very warm and friendly. We were escorted to the Rose room which from the outside looked very attractive. It was however quite dark ,and although it looked out over the very pleasant garden it was rather chilly. There was an electric fire provided for our use, which was not particularly efficient. The bathroom was rather disappointing, and was certainly in need of modernising.

The food was quite good but served in a rather unexpiring restaurant. The staff were excellent, always friendly and most helpful

Room Tip: Some rooms will be warmer than others.

Having travelled from Nuwara Eliya to the Avian Breeze we were met by a very unhelpful / rude receptionist, we had made a slight error in our booking and they were totally unhelpful and so rude to my wife that we left. The room was very very basic for the price and due to the rudeness of the staff we walked out and for went our $95 deposit. We then had to catch a bus back to Nuwara Eliya where we found a very friendly guest house for half the price. If you want to stay in the middle on nowhere with rude staff this place may suit you. we have had a fantastic two week tour of Sri Lanka, this was our only low point.

Room Tip: If you just ignore the rudeness of the staff this place really is no where near Nuwara Eliyia. Perha...

We stayed one night and we appreciated.
The room was big, nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. However the bathroom should be renovated.
We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and we liked it, not bad.
The service was good too.

Our party of 5 stayed here in January 2014. Throughout our stay the staff was courteous, helpful, and did their best to ensure our requests and queries were attended to, to the best of their abilities. We were also pleasantly surprised by the rooms - They were spacious and clean, and most likely newly renovated. Apart from some water heating problems, it was overall a great stay, and one of the nicest and quaint hotels in thea area. Recommended.
