Nice room ”
It's situated at higher altitude, so the room is very cool. Awesome place which can accommodate up to 2 person per room, however will need to get driver to reach their place as it is not accessible. Highly recommended, love it.

Beautiful cottages with super helpful owners”
We were super surprised when we arrived it is much better than the pictures. Beautiful view and super clean. The owner was very kind and helpful with everything. We would have stayed longer if possible. A must in Nuwara Eliya. Walking distance to city Center. Only negative point we have is that the WiFi didn’t reach to our room. But we were welcome anytime in the living area where the router is.

Nice, simple place.”
Ten-fifteen minute walk from downtown (not that you need to spend much time downtown). Sherwood is a simple, nice place on a hill with decent views and a nice staff. No food when I was there, but the Summer Garden guesthouse right next door has good eating options.

Price was a bit debatable but guess its the seasonal hike. The rooms are really beautiful speacially their attic room. Amazing night and morning views from the room. Very pleasant and helpful staff. P.s. Use pen or pencil to attach your 2 pin plug to the 3 pin plug point :D

Best place in Nuwara Eliya”
The Location, View & Hosts
This was our first international trip and I am so glad we chose Sherwood for Nuwara eliya. We were to stay there for 2 days but fell in love with the place so much that we asked for them to extend our stay by a day. Unfortunately, it was all booked and rightly so!! Ugh..still wish we had spent that last day there. From the food, to the view and the location..It was perfect! We arrived there late at night but Mishaan and Suraj made us a great dinner. Though they had a set non veg menu for the night, Mishaan ensure that our vegetarian friend wasn't left hungry. The food was excellent and would definitely recommend it! We booked a room at the attic and had a kickass balcony. The view was perfect and the mornings even better. Just wish that there would have been a heater to keep the room warm but the fireplace in the hall made up for that! The next morning they even helped us set up a taxi to visit Horton plains.Overall, I would definitely recommend to stay in this place and can't wait to come back the next time.

the house is very beautiful and the staff there are very nice and helpful. They booked the car for us to go to Horton Plains and saved us a lot of money. And the lunch they prepared for us are very yummy and traditional-Sri-Lanka-Style. They recommend a local restaurant and the food there indeed tasted very good.

Highly recommend ”
The location is good, the house and rooms are lovely, People are nice.
I have stayed in a room(attic) for 2 nights. I wished I had more time staying there. The location is very good, only about 1km away from the center down to the hill, so it's quiet, convenient and of fresh air and very good views. The house is so lovely, it's modern and British/European style, there is a gorgeous garden filled with all kinds of beautiful flowers and plants. Room is clean, and of facilities. The living room is good. The owner and staff are very nice. Talking to Mishan was a pleasant experience (and he is cute ;p ), the other day I was having a rest in the garden, and they brought me a tray of tea and milk ... That's paradise . Anyway, love it there.safe and cozy, Highly recommend!

location, view and the landlady
I had chosen this place just based on the good reviews. . turned out they were true .. the landlady is very helpful..since we are vegetarians i was worried about the food..but she cooked for us and it was real good..the view outside the cottage was awesome, surrounded by flowers and the weather is always cold and cloudy .. i dont knw the hue and cry about the location .. i found it difficult to reach for the first time but with the shortcut it was easy..and about the place itself it is good..the rooms are nice and spacious enough..the dining place is good amazing hospitality..definitely i would stay there again if i happened to visit nuwara eliya..

Great location and what a view from the room. However, it's quite a hike to and from the town. I guess you just have to put up with it if you want the view and tranquillity. Nice and obliging staff. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Rooms were ok, it is hard to reach there by private vehicle and once u reach there, there is nothing much to do to spend time. But the care takers of this place is so nice, They have been very welcoming and helpful. It was nice to see kind people like that who run this kind of place :) Recommend to go there and we will surely go back again

We were pleasantly surprised by our homestay at Sherwood Cottage - it is a beautiful guesthouse with only two rooms so very private, and the family are very welcoming and attentive - they will even cook breakfast and dinner for you to have at the home if you like (we recommend!). Loved this place.

Food, location, hospitality
Nice guest house on the hill with very friendly hosts, very clean and cosy, nice view, a little far away from main sights, but we had a driver with us so it wasn't a problem for us. One thing that dissapointed: it was redicilously cold in the room and bathroom! There is a fireplace on the first floor but somehow hosts didn't use it that day.
