“A Charming Surpise in the Tea Country of Sri Lanka”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

When we started our 5 week trip around the world I didn't think that I'd be writing about the service and charm of a hotel in the Tea Country of Sri Lanka. If you have the opportunity to visit this lush landscape make a reservation at the Midky Hotel. The rooms are clean, modern, and obviously well cared for. And the friendly staff surprised us with above and beyond service.

When we checked out at 6am on a Sunday morning the gentle and caring hotel manager, Ajith, made sure he had 2 breakfasts packed and ready to go for our early road trip.

The boutique Midky Hotel isn't going to win any coveted hotel awards, but it did win us over and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Thanks so much to the staff and management at the Midky.

+: hotel looks new, clean and comfortable beds, modern and clean bathroom, nice (and necessary) heaters in the bedroom, big windows with a nice view on the mountains. Nice restaurant and good food.
-: First day we had hot water but second day it was just warm water, very close to be cold. Price a little bit high.
Globally a nice hotel with a nice staff.

New and clear room, fresh bedclothes, good bathroom, there is fireplace, helpful staff, very good wi-fi in the room, nice view from the window. Hot water all the time, but the little pressure of the hot water, but it is not a big problem. Perhaps the same situation with the water in all Nuwara Eliya. Will recommend this hotel.

We stayed here as a stop off on our way from Adams Peak to Tangalle knowing there wasn't much to do but the location of the hotel made it very difficult to leave without getting back in the car (we had just spent 5 hours travelling) as it really is in the middle of nowhere.

However the room was lovely with huge windows very comfortable bed with beautiful crisp white linens so we slept well. TV reception was poor but they had a film channel which was quite good, wifi was terrible same as the whole of Sri Lanka!

Breakfast was disappointing after coming from a much cheaper hotel where it was much better quality.

Overall the cost of this hotel (approx £100 p/night incl all taxes) is way over the top for what it has to offer, I guess that's why it seemed fairly empty.

We had a great stay in Midky Hotel. The staff are truely wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. They helped organise our trips, prepared packed lunches, truely great service. The hotel is very nice with a spectacular view. There are cheaper places in town and I feel the room rate was a bit too high.

I think we were the only guests staying and they must have upgraded us to the honeymoon suite (the room matched the description on their flyer). The room was very clean, modern and comfortable. The glass wall on the bathroom was a bit odd - would prefer normal wall!
Very friendly and attentive staff provide service with a smile.
Forgot to turn on water heater before shower - so it was cold - my fault they did tell me how to use it!
We ate in in the evening, but the food was not very nice (as they were quiet maybe the chef wasn't in?). Breakfast was nice with the usual delicious Sri Lankan fruit and choice of eggs plus bacon and sausages.
Not great value (once you include the government tax), and I thought on the whole Nuwara Eliya accommodation options were overpriced - I'd recommend carrying on for a few hours to Ella which is really nice. In particular the Waterfalls Guesthouse!
