    Acceptable”
    They didn't offer the triple room I booked. Instead they offered a double room with inadequate space. They insisted that they are unable to offer the room as they have offered it to someone else. They raised many arguments to justify what they did. After several rounds of arguments they agreed to give a family room from a nearby hotel.although there was enough space, non of us liked that room but we had no where to go and we had to stay in that room. There was only one little piece of soap. one towel cloths rack and a tiny cupboard and slow running hot water. There was no room heating as promised. After complaining repeatedly they offered a heater but insisted that they will turn it off after one hour of operation (as they claim that it will over heat the room). For me that is just a lie. As mentioned they have turned off the heater after about an hour and we had to spend the night without any heating. This was the worst experience I had and I'm ashamed about these kind hotels. Please see whether it is possible to charge them back for not offering what they have promised.......

    Attic room is not suitable to live in”
    Pictures of the place look great, and we were looking forward to having a cosy stay in the Attic room on the two cold (and rainy) nights in Nuwara Eliya. However, when we got there it was anything but. The first thing that came to our attention is the state of the bathroom. At the shower area the bathroom wall does not reach the ceiling, leaving a large gap for the cold wind to come through. The shower water was also weak and lukewarm so it was very hard for us to take proper showers there. The bathroom space is quite big but I don't get why there is no light installed at the shower area, only one dim light bulb in the other corner of the space, which means we shower while being cold and in the dark. The wash basin is so miniscule that you can barely fit your hands in there and I don't get why a standard sized one (like the other rooms) could not be installed given the space available. The door also does not shut properly and creaks loudly when the wind comes through the bathroom. The first night was hardly bearable as there was no heater in the room unlike the other twin bedrooms. On the second day the winds were stronger and we realized that there are small gaps between the "logs" so the wind could also come into the room through the gaps. We gave up on staying in this room when the wire leading to the wifi, electric kettle etc burnt itself and our electricity supply was cut off. Good thing the two twin rooms under us was unoccupied on the second night and the manager/host was helpful enough to let us stay there instead. I have stayed in other guesthouses and hotels both in Sri Lanka and elsewhere. I find it outrageous that for the price the amenities are in such bad shape and it feels like the owner of the house didn't even bother to make the place livable for guests. It's downright annoying and we couldn't wait to leave the property.

    The location was ideal..We stayed in the attic which was smaller than it appears in the photos..not recommended for claustrophobic people..the bathroom wasn't very clean and the shower was broken as well..However, the owner was very friendly and the place was relatively clean..overall it was acceptable for the price..not too great but could've been worse..

    The log house was a really cute and cosy place to stay. Our host Roy was super nice and attentive! He helped us organise rides and walked us to a restaurant on our first day. Really great guy. The room its self was very cosy and quaint, it had everything we needed for our two night stay. We didn't have breakfast included but you can organise it for a small cost (it was about 1300rupes for two days).

    Quirky little place”
    WiFi, price, quirky feel
    Our stay at the log house was brief but pleasant. The staff were friendly and just let us get on with it. The room was nice but basic and a little cold in the evening although there are warm blankets provided on the beds. The WiFi is super fast and I was able to watch the football which was a bonus. The breakfast was basic eggs, toast and tea/coffee. The bathroom was basic and the shower was quite weak and not that warm. The road leading up to the place is not the best when it's raining so it's best to walk up the hill with your bags if your in a normal car. It's worth the price we paid.

    Horrible ! ”
    Nous pensions arriver dans un charmant petit chalet, nous avons trouvé une maison hantée ! Hôte très bizarre et peu bavard qui répondait à peine à nos questions. Chambre mal isolée, sale, froide et le robinet de la salle de bain qui fuyait, sol inondé. Pas de séparation au niveau du plafond avec la chambre d'à côté. Nous avons meme vu le propriétaire refaire le lit sans changer les draps. L'hôtel est de plus mal situé très en retrait du centre et la ville est sans aucun intérêts de toutes façons. Nous sommes restés enfermés de 19h à 8h du matin. Seul point positif la wifi dieu merci car ca nous a occupés en cette soiree bien lugubre. Fuyez Nuwara ELiya il y a tellement de belles choses à voir ailleurs..
