About a ten minute walk from the town center. A small hotel with friendly staff. Rooms are clean and oke. Dinner was good and the take away breakfast tasted good. For one night this is ok to stay. The hotel does not serve any alcoholic beverages and has no place to sit together in the evening. The wifi doesn't work...

Homestay, it has nice rooms, the food was good. Walking distance to the city. Internet was not so good at the moment we were there. Service was fine and also very early. We had breakfast at 5.30 am and this was no problem! We used the hotel only to stay the night. Can't tell you more.

the guest house just only 5 minutes drive to Nuwara Eliya center. There were three beds nice arranged for us. And included one free bottle of water. However the toilet was not really working properly for us. Everything was ok. You get what you pay.

Clean, friendly and professional people, great location as it's central (city centre) and allowing access to the main sites, like the Tea plantations..It's then a great choice, esp. for the relatively economic value, for 2 to 3 or 4 nights stay.. strongly recommended..

We stayed here for one night, on our way to Horton Plains. It's a small, family run hotel in the suburbs of the town (5 minutes walk from the center). The food at the restaurant was great and the guys there were polite and discrete. They even prepared us breakfast for the go at 4:00 o'clock am. We absolutely recommend...

Stayed for one day, considered other accommodation in this price zone during my trip to Sri Lanka, this one was quieter and cleaner, also there was plenty of really hot water. Nights can get a bit chilly in this place so AC isn't really necessary. Also not a single thing was broken in my room, which on Sri Lanka was...
