“Most comfortable bed ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

We spent two nights in a deluxe room on the top floor. Very spacious and I have to say that the bed was the most comfortable bed I think I have ever slept in. The view was relaxing as you look out over the lake and the stream. Dhamushka the chef was very accommodating and my rice and curry was delicious. The whole place was very clean, so clean I felt I should take my shoes off at the front door. Parking is a little tight and the pigeons on the roof a little annoying but I would definitely stay at Gregory House again.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with family

My partner and I thouroughly enjoyed our stay at The Gregory House in Nuwara Eliya. After hearing tales of overpriced and damp-ridden guest houses in NE we decided to spend a little extra for our two nights in town and we were not disappointed with our choice. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the bed was large and warm, perfect for those chilly NE nights. The accomadation is a little further from town than other guesthouses but still only takes 4-5 minutes in a three wheeler. It's also located a few minutes walk from the recently refurbished Gregory Lake where you can hire a bike. The staff were also extremely accomadating and supportive. For a relatively new establishment The Gregory House is doing everything right and the value for money is excellent. Highly recommended.

It seems our confirmed e-mail reservation got lost, so we were upgraded the first night and downgraded the second night, so we have stayed in the third floor and first floor.
The amenities in the room were as good as in minimum 4* hotel,mother mattresses are super.
But both of the rooms were a bit smelly.
One of the employees could nearly not speak a single word of English, the other couldn't help us with anything. We have asked him help to organize a tour to the tea plantations next day and he told us ok, a little bit later he would come back, but he never did. So we just went to another place, but he could have told us, that he cannot make any reservation.

We live in The UK and we have chosen Sri Lanka as our get away destination. Then we decided to stay in the hill capital of the country, I couldn't have been happier we choose the
The Gregory house.it is the best. Me and my missus stayed there for a long weekend in January. Its a location perfect hotel. The room was clean and comfortable easy to walk to and from all areas of interest.The housekeeping staff was excellent and always left extra towels or toiletries when we left a note. The breakfast was perfect and saved us time and money having to get something in a restaurant .Nuwara Eliya town within close proximity,The staff was friendly and helpful. The Gregory house exceeded our expectations and when we return we will be looking to stay there again.

The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, the location great, a one-minute walk to Gregory Lake. The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Best of all is the food -- this is a wonderful example of Sri Lankan home cooking, absolutely delicious with the degree of spiciness suited to your taste. We recommend that you have a meal here even if you are staying elsewhere or are just passing through.

We spent one night at this hotel on January 14th, We had nine people and a little baby. I learned that the place has been acquired by the present owner recently, and have done a marvelous job in upgrading the facilities. The staff is good and well trained and at your disposal. Lunch and dinner were served well and was excellent. I do not hesitate to recommend this place for anyone who is looking for quality accommodation in NE. Great View of the lake and the adjoining hills.

We went there for 2 nights and were a family of 4 so we took 2 double rooms:

(++) everything looks new
(++) very clean rooms and bathrooms
(++) smells good in the rooms
(++) hot water comes fast and is abundant
(++) very comfortable beds with mosquito nets and clean bed sheets
(++) TV with cable in all the rooms
(++) good free wifi
(++) beautiful views from 1st and 3rd floor rooms
(++) reactive and attentive staff
(++) great food for dinner with choice of various meals. The chef is excellent, as good as in 4-5 stars hotels.

(-) 2nd floor bedroom: in front of kitchen and has no view (the room never smells of food and is very large though)
(-) 1st floor bedroom: the toilet is right outside the room, separated from the lobby by a transparent door (not the best for ladies)
(-) served artificial, cheap jam for breakfast but corrected it 2nd morning
