Do yourself a favour and stay here!! We could not fault this beautiful family homestay. The family are so welcoming from the moment you arrive. Instant comfort in the surrounds. Clean and well equipped rooms with private ensuite. Extremely helpful hosts with not only local knowledge, but also transport to and information of places beyond Nuwara Eliya. And will share tips to make your Sri Lankan trip even better! The continental breakfast was really nice and service 10/10. Sri Lankan food also available. We planned to stay one day, we stayed three at this home. Location of this homestay is a five minute walk to town, less to the Victoria Gardens and ten to the Grand Hotel and surrounds. Ideal location saw us needing a tuk tuk only to a tea plantation. We wish we could take this lovely family with us for the rest of our holiday!! Side note: take a walk up single tree hill and stop in to the Buddhist Temple to meet the monks. We were fortunate enough to have a private teaching and meditation class.

Three of us stayed here for three nights. The room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was fantastic. More food that you could ever eat and happy to provide take away for the early starts. The staff were really lovely, obviously knew a lot about the area and more than happy to help plan and give options for things to do. So friendly and willing to help. Nuwara Eliya is in the hills so a little colder than the rest of Sri Lanka. There are plenty of additional blankets provided if you do get cold though. Good location, we walked into town easily, take a torch though. An hours drive to Horton Plains, plenty of tea plantations to visit. Single tree hill is close too so went for a walk up there one evening. There is a golf course very close and a big park. A walk to the lake is nice too. Would recommend staying here.
