"The location of the hotel in Nuwara Eliya is stunning as is first sight of the hotel interior. We were welcomed with a smile and cup of tea together with traditional juggery (a sort of crunchy fudge). Our room had a view of the garden and was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The staff during our stay were excellent, as was the food, especially breakfast. "

"Treat yourself to a nice hotel in Nuwara Eliya because there's nothing in town and not really any place to go out. Best place to stay is here or at the Grand Hotel. However, in this hotel there is a set menu for dinner whereas in the Grand Hotel there is a restaurant and a coffee shop with good food. Both hotels have bars and billiard tables. In fact the Grand Hotel has three. The rooms here are quite nice, like staying in an old house in England. The only problem is that I had a view of a brick wall and when I asked to change rooms they took me to the other older wing where there were only two single beds in each room so I ended up stuck with the wall, not very nice since the only reason to come to Nuwara Eliya and Ella is to enjoy the view. The dinner menu wasn't anything special, breakfast was alright but forget about getting a decent cup of tea. It was nice to have a radiator in the room as I was able to dry my still damp washing and a nice touch was to find a hot water bottle in bed. The bar had a happy hour with a 25% discount and that was nice. Had to ask the train times to Ella several times before the receptionist called the station. I was surprised that they didn't have a list of the train times available since nearly everyone takes the train from here to Ella."

"It was a memorable stay in the heart of Nuwara Eliya, just beside the Gregory Lake. The staff was very helpful and the food was awesome. The place was ideal for quiet, comfortable and cosy stay. Little disappointed on the room heaters as it was not sufficient enough. I was staying at the best rooms and rooms were very clean . The prices were little bit expensive but really worth it."

"We travelled to the Tea Factory Hotel from Kandy getting higher in altitude as we went. The mists rolled in and eventually we turned down a narrow bumpy road that led through some tea plantations. The very imposing Tea Factory Hotel loomed suddenly out of the fog. On arrival, we were welcomed with a warm towel and cup of sweet tea. Some of the machinery from the old tea factory days remains and the reception area is very tastefully furnished. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable with tea supplied from the hotels own miniture tea factory. The bathroom was functional but the bath/shower area furnishing was slightly dated. Evening meal in the form of a buffet and the bar area was well thought out with a range of tasty food. Reception staff were faultless throughout our short stay. If you are staying in the area specifically to visit World's End in Horton Plains, the van to take you there leaves from the Grand Hotel in Nuwara Eliya (1 hour's drive from the Tea Factory Hotel) so it would make more sense to stay at/near that hotel. However, if you fancy staying in an unusual hotel with spa, gym, good food and outstanding staff service then I cannot recommend the Tea Factory Hotel highly enough. (The road to the hotel will certainly give your vehicle's suspension a thorough testing!)"

"I ended up reaching this hotel when I was super sick and after a couple of hours of checking in the hotel I realised I needed medical attention. Felt a little unsure about finding the right doc in new country but our worries were unwarranted as soon as we told the hotel staff about it. Not only did they arrange transportation but also organized priority medical service at a very busy OPD and to add the hotels HR manager came along with us taking all worries away. Thankfully I recovered overnight and next morning went for breakfast and their entire staff came and checked with me if I was comfortable. I am amazed by service level and genuine concern every staff displayed. Not just the hotel staff. The hotel itself is very beautiful. If you are in Nuwara Eliya do consider this brand new hotel with lovely interiors and unmatched service. Heartfelt thank you to staff of Galway Heights"

"Beautiful place and very well maintained. Right from the point one enters Ramboda Falls, you are taken down to the hotel in a van. The hotel is well built and has a great location. Rooms are clean and the view from the room is good. Has a natural water swimming pool and one can walk down to the waterfalls. Would rate it 8 on 10. Only disadvantage is that it's cut off from Nuwair Eliya (around 20 kms from the city which on these curvy roads would be atleast a 45 min drive). But if ou have a cab/van of your own, then its good. The breakfast was good. I just hipe that prices dont increase as the ratings improve "

"The hotel is situated in the middle of a tea plantation where you can stroll around and look at how the tea is being farmed. This entails also great views from the room and main building. The rooms are spacious, very clean and nicely equipped. The staff is extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food from the hotel garden was absolutely delicious. While the hotel is an oasis of peace, one has to consider that it is a bit off the beaten track. Therefore, there is not an abundance of activities nearby. A good option is climbing Adam’s Peak when it is open (it is closed off-season). Another possibility is to rent a bike from the hotel for a short tour. "

"We took a chance on this place as it didn't have any reviews and was obviously pretty new. Lovely room, staff and location. They couldn't have been more helpful. There were only a few people staying so they made breakfast to order rather than operate a buffet. They even included us in their celebration for new year. Great place."

"Very close to town center (100 ruppies by tuktuk or short walk) and at the same time calm and relaxing. Very helpful staff, they did all what we asked with a smile. Very nice balcony view of village and cloudy mountains. Very enjoyable fresh vegetable food and excellent value. Nice little garden for kids to roam. The cleanliness isn't perfect but good. No refrigerator but this seems common in Nuwara Eliya and Ella.In the morning we enjoyed feeding the many funny crows and other birds in the area. "
