Grand Hotel
Nuwara Eliya City Center,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"The location of the hotel in Nuwara Eliya is stunning as is first sight of the hotel interior. We were welcomed with a smile and cup of tea together with traditional juggery (a sort of crunchy fudge). Our room had a view of the garden and was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The staff during our stay were excellent, as was the food, especially breakfast. "

Panorama Green View Hotel
Nuwara Eliya City Center,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"loved this hotel, the owner, staff and all. few things to consider to further improve our stay: 1- wifi in rooms? 2- better insulation of rooms to retail the heat. Dec. weather in Nuwara Eliya is cold and the rooms have to be better prepared to retain the heat. usage of carpets, removal of tiles, etc. 3- more parking if possible? 4- availability of a heater in the room? but all in all, great stay. hope to comeback during more cooler climates!"

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!)"

Thuring's Holiday Bungalow
Nuwara Eliya City Center,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"The staff were nice, but, the location is up to the hill, you have to take tuktuk to the downtown for dinner. At the time I arrived, this was new year in Sri Lanka. There was a big party besides the lake, the people celebrates and sings till 2:00am, although this was noisy, but the atmosphere is happy. The breakfast is wonderful. "

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."

THURULIYA HOTEL
Ramboda,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"Very easy to locate the hotel if you travel from north sri lanka to nuwara eliya. Its a little far from Nuwara Eliya city center. The view from the Panorama rooms is AMAZING !! Wifi speed is also good in the rooms. The furnishings of rooms are also nice and cozy. You can hear the Ramboda Waterfalls from the balcony of the panorama rooms. Its really soothing. Standard panorama room does not have AC, but its not noticeable as the place is pretty cold. We had to leave for Horton Plains in the morning 4:30, and the hotel was kind enough to pack us good sandwiches and water bottles for breakfast THAT early in the morning. Much recommended. Its a beautiful place."

Tea Bush Hotel
Nuwara Eliya City Center,Nuwara Eliya - View on map
"I had to change my room twice due to no hot water. And with the cool weather at Nuwara Eliya, you need HOT water! But nonetheless, we were upgraded to a better deluxe room which was very nice of the manager. The hotel is more pricey than the others but totally worth it. Service is fab and the food at their restaurant is the best I've had in Sri Lanka. The rooms are clean and spacious which is good. It is a short walk to the city centre and also to gregory lake. But since it is on the highest point of the hill, the walk may leave you a tad tired. "
