The Hotel name give the impression of coming into a nice hotel. Yet the first impression is diappointed on second glance: the room 204 I got as a single traveling women was incredible noisy, while the couples of the groupes were located in the rooms facing the quite garden. My room was leading right out onto the ver noisy and...

Very poor east European 1960's style block of a hotel next to the police station in Nuwara Eliya. We were allocated to rooms which faced onto a dirty alleyway. The rooms weren't that clean and could do with a refresh. The buffet was not up to the standard I'd come to expect in Sri Lanka and at the highest price...

Arrived here in the pouring rain to get some shelter and a quick bite to eat. We arrived to an empty restaurant, however it was 3pm. The food was nice and reasonable, and service was quick. The hotel itself seemed quite derelict though, and didn't have the best of surroundings. Think it's in need of a makeover. As a note...

Stayed here as part of a group tour. Lots of old world charm , but needs to be updated/ revitalised. Rooms are spacious, but have musty smell due to ?moisture. Can't talk to views as my room looked out to police station. There was no heating or air conditioning in room, but you could hire a heater. Staff very friendly...

Nice looking hotel from the outside. No lift - rather unexpected. Terrible view from our room - see photo. Room generally grubby and rather smelly curtains needed to be kept shut with other windows facing. It was cold and there was no heating without paying extra for a heater. Hard beds. Good communal areas with comfortable chairs and very helpful...

This property is long past it's best-before date. Adequate in many ways, it is need of a revitalization. Rooms are spacious, bathrooms tired, no heating or air conditioning (it gets cold at night), no kettle, no safes, poor security on doorways. Centrally located, it offers an passable breakfast. The manager Johnny is helpful and accommodating. Free wifi throughout hotel.

We stayed here one night on a bike tour. Room was ok, but unheated. Wifi in room was the best of the trip. Dinner was disappointing, possibly because we pre-ordered then arrived late. I got the wrong meal, not only cold but poor quality and over-cooked. Rogue elephant bar is comfortable. Location is central, easy walk to shopping area and...
