Silver Falls is located 2km from Newara Eliya and should rightly be considered 'over the hill'. In fact 'over that mountain' according to its smiling helpful manager. It has a sort of faded end of empire delapedation about the place, but guess it might have well been the roman one. Its 'Stonehenge bar' has seen less investment than the British original and if you ever want to know what a lighting shop looks like after thieves have been in, just look at the ceilings. They must have the Guinness world record for the largest miss matched collection of light bulbs each hanging from its own unique ex light fitting. If you get hungry at breakfast, you're never far from an extra portion. Just glance under the tables in the bar. Our room had none of the creature comforts and a radio knob that pre dated radio itself helpfully reminded you it didn't work by falling off and working its way up your left nostril during the night. Water in the shower was hot but the fluffy cotton ever yellowing 'tie dye' toilet seat cover, was alas in more in need of a wash than we were. This hotel is very 'tired' and in serious need of makeover. Personally speaking, if I were you, I would probably find an alternative in Newara Eliya itself. Then at the very least you are not beholden to three wheelers or buses. Or over the hill!
