“great hotel, great price, and so clean room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

First of all, I noticed how spotless clean the room was. Totally impressed. And the price was very good for me, a solo traveller. And its in a great place, a very quiet place. And on top of that , Neel, was a great source of help in finding me a good deal in traveling to Horton Plains!! Thanks Neel, and thanks Victoria Inn.

If you want to get advice about the city,you have to ask Gerald,the hotel manager...
If you need a friend, Gerald is there...
If you need a (cheap,close to town,near the Victoria Park) room,Victoria Inn is there...

This was a great place to stay in Nuwara Eliya and possibly the best sleep I had in all of Sri Lanka.
It may not be suitable for solo travelers as it is a little expensive for double rooms ONLY, but if you can afford it then it's worth it as the service was almost faultless and the clean rooms and peaceful setting make this place very enjoyable.

Cute place, a bit dirty (the shared bathroom especially), the staff seemed to try really hard but there was a large cultural barrier. Examples include catching us right before a shower to ask for payment before staying, or serving us spaghetti with garlic as 'spaghetti cabonara'. The wifi is dismal and there are heaps of mossies. The staff did try really hard though, I just think they are more used to local guests.

i would like to say something good about this place but i couldnt find anything but location. just to good thing is close to city and quiet place.
lack of management. the internet was cut off just because they didnt pay the bill !! the manager said they will fix it soon but it is obvious you cant activate it again in same day.
i stayed many guest houses and hostels many different countries but first time i had to pay extra because they didnt have change. when i was checking out i asked my change from mty check in 200rp manager just gave me 150 rp, said no change take this and immediately he run away.
unbelievable.

Horrible place because of the sheer greediness of the management. Were quoted 2200 for room when called but on arrival it became 5000. Too tired to find anywhere else the only plus was the hot water. Food dreadful. Manager had a loud argument with a couple over their room rate which had been written and signed by them on registration card but changed by management. He was still haranguing the young woman when l went to bed and l woke at six to hear it starting again.
When l wanted curry and rice they wouldnt do it for one person! Too hard!
My driver was treated like rubbish and there was no water for his toilet!
Presented with bill after atrocious dinner-blank face when l said my food was awful-and expected to pay immediately! But no change madame and they stiffed me 20 rupees even then.

When the manager has to get a brick from outside to bang a couple of nails back in to make sure the lock on the door actually works I think it's fair to say the place has been neglected!
Great location it just needs a bit of work. We turned up without a booking in NE and hence ended up here. I guess the moral of the story is book somewhere good in advance if you don't want to end up in a place like this....
