We planned for 1 night at Victoria Inn initially. But once we reached here, the staff courteousness made us extend our stay for 1 more night. We were charged 3000 SLR without breakfast, compared much less to the surrounding hotels. Do not expect too much from this hotel at this rate at Nuwara Eliya you will hardly find any other option. The view was very good from the road-side rooms at 1st floor. Food menu options were less but food was good and fresh.

Room Tip: Cost of food was a bit on the higher side. Local market is nearby (around 5min walking). You can eas...

The best thing about the Victoria Inn is its proximity to town. The place has great potential but our room was not clean, damp (I understand a mountain climate is always a bit more humid but when the bathroom door is rotting away) and the owner was far from friendly. Glad to be leaving.

First of all, I noticed how spotless clean the room was. Totally impressed. And the price was very good for me, a solo traveller. And its in a great place, a very quiet place. And on top of that , Neel, was a great source of help in finding me a good deal in traveling to Horton Plains!! Thanks Neel, and thanks Victoria Inn.

This was a great place to stay in Nuwara Eliya and possibly the best sleep I had in all of Sri Lanka.
It may not be suitable for solo travelers as it is a little expensive for double rooms ONLY, but if you can afford it then it's worth it as the service was almost faultless and the clean rooms and peaceful setting make this place very enjoyable.

Cute place, a bit dirty (the shared bathroom especially), the staff seemed to try really hard but there was a large cultural barrier. Examples include catching us right before a shower to ask for payment before staying, or serving us spaghetti with garlic as 'spaghetti cabonara'. The wifi is dismal and there are heaps of mossies. The staff did try really hard though, I just think they are more used to local guests.

i would like to say something good about this place but i couldnt find anything but location. just to good thing is close to city and quiet place.
lack of management. the internet was cut off just because they didnt pay the bill !! the manager said they will fix it soon but it is obvious you cant activate it again in same day.
i stayed many guest houses and hostels many different countries but first time i had to pay extra because they didnt have change. when i was checking out i asked my change from mty check in 200rp manager just gave me 150 rp, said no change take this and immediately he run away.
unbelievable.
