We stayed here one night during our visit to Nuwara Eliya. The hotel looks grand just like its name. It use to be Governor's house & office during the colonial era. It still retains the same charm with large wooden panels, fireplaces, stately furniture & furnishings, winding wooden staircases. The glory of the past era has been beautifully preserved and its almost like a visit to a heritage building. The only & big disappointment is the esp. the bathroom that badly needs renovation. The old plastic hung for shower curtain, worn out fittings & cabinets are a turnoff. The room was fine with a cute fireplace, lovely old style dresser but bed linen looks old n not very clean. The breakfast spread is okay, dining room again is a vast hall with large colonial dining tables & furniture. The lawns are pretty again. There's a nice Indian restaurant just outside the hotel near the entrance.
