Travelled there in a chilling rainy day with a friend of mine and a tuk tuk driver took us to this place. Honestly speaking, the house itself looks clean and decent.
We lived in the downstairs double room and paid two thousand 500rs. The window of balcony door is broken so the winds went through for a whole night which is very cold. The owner did not apologize this after we found out the broken door, but instead they are really strict on letting us use lights in the living room.
No towels were provided so I called the lady to bring towels. She came down with towel and suddenly got really angry to see that the toilet light was on, and I was waiting for the towel so I came out to fetch them I wasn't in bathroom, then the long lecture begins with few dirty words from the owner saying we are bad women bcoz we don't let them make money.
I explained I just turned on the lights and for a few seconds I come out there is no problem with that. Then the husband keeps saying how expensive the electricity is, even for ONE SECOND out of bathroom u should turn off lights. The wife walked into bathroom and shut off the lights when I was still in.
They keep the curtain in living open so they can see from outside. I closed it, they came back to open again. They lock the entire living room and our bedroom from outside. I have NEVER EVER seen a guest house treat its guests like this. Husband even ask us to pay and move out at midnight. Keeps standing in our room for a few minutes educating us about there is no profit to make if we don't turn off light in barroom for a second.
Really we have no problem with the house, but the crazy owners really made us an extremely bad experience staying in nuwara eliya. If you think 2500rs for the double room is too low, sure you can rise the price of the room instead of giving the guests a bad night.
