Heritance Tea Factory
Kandapola,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"We travelled to the Tea Factory Hotel from Kandy getting higher in altitude as we went. The mists rolled in and eventually we turned down a narrow bumpy road that led through some tea plantations. The very imposing Tea Factory Hotel loomed suddenly out of the fog. On arrival, we were welcomed with a warm towel and cup of sweet tea. Some of the machinery from the old tea factory days remains and the reception area is very tastefully furnished. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable with tea supplied from the hotels own miniture tea factory. The bathroom was functional but the bath/shower area furnishing was slightly dated. Evening meal in the form of a buffet and the bar area was well thought out with a range of tasty food. Reception staff were faultless throughout our short stay. If you are staying in the area specifically to visit World's End in Horton Plains, the van to take you there leaves from the Grand Hotel in Nuwara Eliya (1 hour's drive from the Tea Factory Hotel) so it would make more sense to stay at/near that hotel. However, if you fancy staying in an unusual hotel with spa, gym, good food and outstanding staff service then I cannot recommend the Tea Factory Hotel highly enough. (The road to the hotel will certainly give your vehicle's suspension a thorough testing!)"

Galway Heights Hotel
Nuwara Eliya City Center,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"I ended up reaching this hotel when I was super sick and after a couple of hours of checking in the hotel I realised I needed medical attention. Felt a little unsure about finding the right doc in new country but our worries were unwarranted as soon as we told the hotel staff about it. Not only did they arrange transportation but also organized priority medical service at a very busy OPD and to add the hotels HR manager came along with us taking all worries away. Thankfully I recovered overnight and next morning went for breakfast and their entire staff came and checked with me if I was comfortable. I am amazed by service level and genuine concern every staff displayed. Not just the hotel staff. The hotel itself is very beautiful. If you are in Nuwara Eliya do consider this brand new hotel with lovely interiors and unmatched service. Heartfelt thank you to staff of Galway Heights"

Oak-Ray Summer Hill Breeze Hotel
Nuwara Eliya City Center,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"Hotel is good and certainly live upto your expectation Food is expensive especially break fast with very limited option for India Veg Tourist. We have 2 rooms, in 1 room there was some problem with washroom shower, as it was not fix to wall, we check in at 8 in evening as we head directly from Colombo to Nuwara Eliya, thus it was 5 hrs drive. We slept just after dinner, next morning when we checked shower is not Ok,we informed hotel staff, and we went to check places near nuwara eliya. When we returned back senior staff told initially that it is our fault and we broke the shower cap then we convinced them that we did not broke later they said ok. Only this was bitter experience, rest all was OK and upto the mark. Regards Shivam"

Oak Ray Tea Bush Ramboda
Ramboda,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"The view from where this hotel is situated is unbelievable. Many foreigners stay at this hotel or stop here for food/tea. The room is very clean and comfortable. There's no AC needed in this hotel as the climate in Nuwara Eliya/Ramboda is very cool. The bathroom was nice and clean and the shower felt so relaxing. The view from the room was amazing. We ordered room service dinner and it was plenty for two people. The breakfast was delicious and they placed a wide variety of options. Very nice view while having breakfast. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Nuwara Eliya, especially if it's their first time."

Grand Camellia Hotel
Nuwara Eliya City Center,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"This is located few kilometres away from Nuwara Eliya town centre but very easy to get in (Don't complain, take a bus to Mahagasthota and a taxi. It costs less than two dollars). The staff is nice and welcoming. But the most important thing was the room. This is a very large clean room. Definitely worth twice the money I paid. The free breakfast was good enough. It is not a buffet breakfast, but if you need more, they will happily give you as much as you need. Don't go to fancy and expensive hotels in Nuwara Eliya if you want to stay few nights. Grand Camellia worth more than what you pay. I'll definitely go there again."

Serenus Boutique Villa
Nuwara Eliya City Center,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"There is no hot water for such a price, is the worst condition for a hotel compare with all other we lived inSrilanka. But the staff is very patient. If you do not mind live in ground with horrible smell, than book the room for two. Otherwise do not book the hotel. The toliet is very small as well."
