I just returned from Nuwara Eliya were I stayed at the Hill Club and visited the Tea Factory Hotel for the day. While chatting to staff, I was told that some tourists specially from Dubai try to take in ovens, hot plates to cook their own meals in the rooms at places such at the Tea Factory Hotel! They try to take in provisions as well. The staff at the hotel search their possessions and refuse access to such equipment, resulting in heated arguments.
Some tourists add tea leaves to the coffee maker/ kettle and pour the tea leaves down the sink clogging it!
One outside guest had tried to go up to the rooms without permission and when told politely to desist, he had raised his hand at the staff member.
Just wanted to post these few comments so that tourists know what to expect when they arrive and can behave accordingly with respect towards staff at hotels.
