Beautiful setting and great service
We stayed in Nuwara Eliya for one night on our tour of Sri Lanka. Upon arrival we were met by what felt like a beautifully British hotel with perfectly manicured gardens. We then had afternoon tea on the lawn in the sunshine. The rooms are wonderful and fitting with the style of the hotel. The one thing we noticed with this hotel was that the pictures do not do it justice, in person it is so much nicer and more beautiful. We went to the royal hotel for dinner also and were not impressed thus would highly recommend visitors to NE stay here. The staff were great and so was the food.
English feel of a stay
The beautifully trimmed hedges in the gardens gave me a good feeling as we were being driven up the road to be dropped off. First impressions were good, as it felt traditionally English. Rooms are more of an English cottage style and this is where it falls a little short for me, esp. the attached bathrooms. I do prefer the common areas of this 131 year old building, and being able to enjoy the warmth of a fireplace. Buffet also had a good spread in comparison to some other hotels we stayed in.
A good older style hotel
We actually stayed in this hotel 20 years ago, also while on a tour. The hotel is a older traditional style, very cosy - a big open fire in the bar in the evenings as Newara Eliya is very high up & a lot cooler than the rest of the country. . A beautiful spacious bedroom with a 'cottage' feel, really pretty (tiny flowered curtains & bed throw). The staff were very friendly & helpful. The hotel was on the edge of town, but there were plenty of Tuk tuck's to take you into town.
The fire place
This is the best thing i like to do in N'eliya. Sit by the fire place in St.Andrews and have a drink, especially in the cold days. They have a beautiful set up, staff are nice and friendly and the atmosphere is just beautiful.
The room was nice and cozy, although there was no bathtub available. The flowers and the hotel garden was beautiful. The buffet for all meals were great. In the night we consumed a bottle of wine in front of the hearth. Overall this hotel had a very English feel to it.
