I had very comfortable stay in this guesthouse. Rooms are clean and quiet, staff very very friendly and more importantly it has hot water! Very reasonable price for room and breakfast. 10min walking distance from the bus station.

A nice welcome in this clean and neat guesthouse. Maybe a bit dark inside, but anyway charming with a very good service. Bang for buck an excellent place to stay. If you want they arrange a jeep for a reasonable 3500 rupees to Horton Plains and breakfast to go if you want.

We stayed in the Carnation Rest for only one night. We stayed in the new built house. Our room was really spacious, with a small kitchen and kind of a living room. The bathroom was new and clean. Even if it's not that cheap, there's nothing to complain about. Breakfast was also tasty, we would come back again for sure!

It is a warm and cosy guest house. Which is important in cold Nuwara Ellia. The staff is nice and helpful. It is situated midway between the city center and the beautiful lake, which is ideal for a 2 or 3 days stay. A good address.

This place was recommended by a friend of a friend. The staff were friendly and the room was comfortable with a TV, and bathroom, which you don't expect to find with a budget hotel. The only thing that would have made our stay perfect was if they had heating in the rooms.

The hotel is located a 10 minute walk south from downtown and just off the main road, which made it very quiet. From the common area you have a great view of the hills across and you can even see a sliver of the lake. The hosts are very kind and attentive. Whenever we asked for directions or advice it...

We staid in the chalet. It was very nice and the room was very clean. It had hot water which is very important considering the fact that Nuwara Ellia is freezing and wet in August. If you're not much into hiking don't bother to go during August. The lake is nice though and the road from kandy to Nuwara Ellia...

The guesthouse is clean. The triple room was spacious with big beds and the shower was good with hot water. The breakfast was good. The wifi was shaky in our room. Although it got noisy in the hallway at night, we didn't really mind as we were exhausted and slept rather fast and early. We needed a good night's sleep...

We stayed here only 1 night and could directly tell it it is very clean, the room was nice, they have a nice indoors terrace as well where you can enjoy a drink - everything is OK / but they made us feel like we were not really welcome there... It might be a problem of communication as English isn't...
