“Lovely overall stay ”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Very clean, friendly hotel. Warm Sri Lankan welcome. Beautiful room with views over looking the valley. Lovely breakfast and Sri Lankan curry meal cooked upon request - both delicious. Very good hotel by Sri Lankan standards and a welcome stop.

Stayed January 2014

For $150 US a room this is not worth it at most $75
In our 2 week trip to Sri Lanka and 6 places that we stayed at this was the biggest disappointment
This is not a new property it has a refurbished bathroom
it is not a hotel but a house
the photos on agoda have been photo-shopped
the owners are rude
I have travelled all over Asia and this would rank as my worst stay

Booked the room on the top level which in my opinion is the best room as it had windows which faced 2 directions - overlooking the road which led to Nuwara Eliya and the road leading to the town - as the hotel is at a bend. Very nice garden to sit in in the morning and spacious room with luxurious bedding and sheets. Heater was modern but it took a while to heat the cold room. They provided hot chocolate in the room and it was nice. Service was good the guy carried our luggage up the stairs for us and attended to all our needs.

Main grouse was 2 things: Toilet - towel handles dropped off and were shoddily fixed. Toilet was cold as the ceiling was exposed to the rest of the room.
Food was prepared on request, however it was relatively the worst i've tasted in my 13 days in Sri Lanka. I ordered Chicken Bryani and a curry chicken. I only ate half of it and couldn't force myself to eat the other half as it didn't taste fresh and was dry and stiff.

It's a bit chilly up here so a warm welcome with hot chocolate was a great start (especially for the kids). Nicely upgraded rooms and the food was great with the staff going to extra efforts to make everyone happy. They even had hot-water bottles ready for night. Ok, it's not so easy to walk everywhere from here but they will happily arrange a tuk-tuk quickly for a 5 min hop into town.

This seemed a new or newly refurbished hotel-a modern bedroom. Great view from it when cloud lifted.Was wet and cool when there but bedroom heater worked and tho we were only visitors, a curry meal was put on for us. Attentive and willing staff.

We were visitors in Nuwara Eliya at the worst time, wet and cool, although not freezing cold like the locals think! The hotel was more or less empty and the atmosphere was therefore very quiet. We ate there one night and had a very nice curry with all the trimmings,
The room was fine although as others have said, there is a damp problem. Nothing that extractor fans in the bathrooms wouldn't solve I expect. Overall a nice stay.

We didn't want to stay in one of those old colonial buildings and were looking for a nice, clean and quiet hotel. Our room turned out to be nice and clean as what other reviewers observed, and we had good sleep with the heater on and hot water bottle provided every night. Linens and towels were fresh. We were very surprised by the food. Mr Kumar would ask us what we would like for each meal and the food always turned up tasty and well presented. All the staff were helpful and friendly. Our driver enjoyed his stay too! We were there for 2 nights and would certainly recommend this place.
