“great place”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

great location, exceptional manager Herath, nice house. hot water, warm blankets. nice view over the park, 5 min walk to the center (restaurants, supermarket, market and the bus station). upstairs there is small kitchen to make tea and two couches with the small table in the living room. The only thing missing is the fireplace. Really welcoming and warm stay made by the manager.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

This guest house is really nice. Rooms are nice and clean and large. Hot water was very welcome. The gardens and views are particularly lovely. Hereth was a very kind man and made us feel very welcome. Location is great , close to town on foot.

We stayed in Park View Guest House for couple of days (24th to 26th Dec). Park View Guest House has beautiful view of the Victoria Park & the hills beyond. We stayed in the family room on the ground floor which has some amazing views just by the window! The room was spacious with clean bathroom & 24/7 running hot water (a must in cold & windy N.E)

One of the advantages of Park View is that it is close to the city center where one can find all the essentials. One can walk up to the main bus stand as well, from where you can catch buses to all major cities in Sri Lanka.

Herath, the manager of the guest house is a man with big heart - when we were unable to find the guest house for the first time, he walked down quite a distance to escort us! He also suggested the places to see around & helped us with the bookings to visit Harton Plains. Herath also has a good hand at making delicious hot tea!!

If you are looking for budget stay, don't look beyond Park View!

Good location, close to town, but still a dark road at night. To us it was just a cheap bed for the night. It wasn't dirty but it didn't feel clean. The room was damp & the ground floor bathroom window wouldn't lock (we could lock the door from the room inside). We used the Travene for breakfast and hung out in the lobby of the Grand Hotel for comfort/warmth, & bought a nice jacket at the downtown market :)

The place is simple but nice. You need to be prepared to use sleeping bag as it gets cold during the night. You can feel the humid in the hotel…
It is really close to bus station and Victoria Park. The park is a must see plus the gardener is a very nice person who showed us all interesting endemic Sri Lankan plants and herbs. Great place to relax after bus travel! The hotel staff is helpful and nice especially Sidney. He even lighted a candle and prayed for us when we were running a bit late from trekking in Ella.

Parkview good location 5 min walk from bus station. Very friendly staff, rooms large and clean. No restaurant, can eat breakfast and lunch in town. I ate dinner at sister property 5 min walk at Travene Guest House - set menu each night, cosy, fireplace and affordable. Nuwara Eliya not an attractive town and unfortunately a bit damp and cold. I enjoyed Pedro Tea Plantation, but otherwise did not enjoy that much.

I made a very short trip to Nuwara Eliya, and one of the brightest part of my trip was this hotel. It liked it's cleanliness, homely atmosphere and a feel good factor. If you are interested in not spending a fortune for a stay in Nuwara Eliya.. Then this is the place...Located just above the main bus stand. I would like to say special thanks to Heratha, the manager for his humble and welcome gestures.

Room Tip: It's a basic guest house with not much of dining facility.. Be prepared for that.
