"If you want the full colonial experience, this is the place. It is better than Singapore's Raffles as Raffles has been clinically updated while keeping the false facade of period features. The Grand Hotel has the full works, from staff, room, facilities and a large selection of scrumptious food. ..."…"

Good Hotel & great service

"The hotel was really good and service was acceptional from the reception staff. The room nice, however the view was facing another hotel and court yard, so you couldn’t look out of the window to admire the views. Also the hearing in the room wasn’t all that it kept cutting off every 5 minutes and ..."…"

Beautiful bungalow for a one night stay.

"Beautiful colonial bungalow where the service and food are excellent! Only down points are the location; it’s in the highest village and therefore the access road is not the easiest to navigate making Nuwara Eliya less accessible. Also, we were in room 2 and the noise from the rest of the bungalow ..."…"
