I took the bus from Colombo to Nuwara Elia without a hotel reservation, and the Sri Lankan guy next to me recommended I stay at Sunhill. He was trying to be nice, but there must be better options out there.
The room did not have heaters and it gets quite cool in the evenings. Also, the rooms aren't clean or modern, and the restaurant was pretty damn forgettable. I asked for some Sri Lankan food and was told I had to order from the western or Chinese menu because it takes too long to make Sri Lankan food. I ended up getting some Chinese cuttlefish dish that didn't whisk me away to shores of Hainan Island.
I've lived in some remote parts of the world, so I don't mind staying in places with no heat, in dingy rooms or in places with lackluster food, but I expect the price to be comparable to the amenities. At $35-40 a night I expect a little bit more.
On the positive side the staff were pretty friendly and helpful.
