To be honest, I am shocked that so far this place has managed to hold a four star rating. When we arrived the guesthouse we saw did not live up to those kind of expectations... it really shook our faith in TripAdvisor. The decor was horrendous - like some sort of mountain chalet from the seventies: clashing patterns, ads for...

It's a simple but warm place, warm decor and warm people. The inn owner Lawerence is very kind and attentative, who tried to satisfy all our needs. And the room charge is very reasonable. It was very relaxing having breakfast by the window at the dining room.

Compared to cost accommodation in Nuwara Elliya, this guest house can be considered as very good value for money. The guest house keeper Austin Lawrence has been extremely helpful and attentive all our needs.

It was a very enjoyable stay here. It's run by a very friendly and helpful husband and wife. It's a little out of town but it's a short and enjoyable walk in there. There was free wifi too. The rooms are nice and I'd recommend it to a friend.

The hosts are the best thing about this place, they were very friendly and very helpful. The rooms were ok but we feel they are overpriced for what you get. Location was fair, around a 15 minute walk to town and therefore in quiet surroundings with lovely views of the hills.
