“Great view and location but”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

I booked Dewy Cottage for few fiends and myself who were travelling together. We had an early vhrck-in for a reasonable price and also 2 nice comfortable rooms with Hot water. We have a really good impression about staff as well as the manager who took care of us very well.
Choices of Menu to be improved and consistent housekeeping services will be appreciated. We would like to return to the place in the future.

paid about 5000 LKR for a double, rooms have no heating, that is just for info and not part of my rating.

good things first:
- the common area is nice
- the breakfast was good
- the view is great

the not so good things:
- room was smelly
- we had no hot water on the first day, because the manager forgot to switch the heater on
- the water in the shower had very low pressure, washing hair for women could be annoying
- the shower head was leaky, there was tape around it, but that didn't really fix the issue
- we had to ask for room keys, toilet paper and towels, because they were missing at the first place and got a not so friendly reaction, when asking for it
- some room doors jumped open by themselves, if not locked
- breakfast was served in the attic, which wouldn't pass a European stress analyst examination, because the attic is built upon very thin wood planks
- when we arrived, the manager didn't tell us, that his price indication is without 10% service charge. we are traveling for almost two weeks in Sri Lanka now and every hotel so far gave us price indications including service and taxes

Dewy Cottage offers a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle City. The guesthouse is run by a team of friendly staff who serve warm heartedly and make your stay enjoyable.
Despite the guesthouse located in the mountain, it just take 10 mins walk to the Main Street. It is well located in my opinion.
Overall we had a very good trip in Nuwara Eliya and enjoyable stay in Dewy Cottage. Will definitely return here on my next trip to Siri Lanka.
