TravelPod Member ReviewsRising Lion Inn Nuwara Eliya
We stayed in 2 rooms. The room upstairs was dark & dusty. The one downstairs slightly brighter, but noisy hotel staff disturbed our sleep at night. Food on the other hand was quite good. I had the tastiest freshly-made garlic soup here. The cook who was also the waiter was generous in his servings. The owner on the other hand was a bit of a stiff neck. For USD60 per night, it's not worth staying here.

... tea businessman from Nanu Oya and he was very friendly. Some Sri Lankans were very nice... It was at around seven that I arrived at Nanu Oya. I had dinner at an eatery. Actually, the only Sri Lankan word I had learned was "Sarai" meaning hot. So I used the wornd and successfully avoided hot food. Anyway, I stayed there until its closing time. After that, I waited for my train in the resting room of the station for 2.5 hours, reading LP ...
... reading room for a pot of tea. Our rooms where very English country house although we were out the back section without view of stunning lawns. Before dinner a member of staff brought hot water bottles to our rooms and placed them under our pillows. Tonight most of us opted to dine in the formal dining room where me must wear a jacket and tie. Lucky for us we had one chivalrous man in our group who braved a borrowed jacket to dine with the ...
... by us - and the driver was turned around leaning out and waiving at us. It was our driver from yesterday!!!! How funny is that. And how lovely that he remembered us! We knew he was heading back the same way today, but didn't know the time - so what a coincidence that we bumped into him! After that, the rest of the way was pretty normal. As normal as walking down the railway track is. At a large prayer tree (covered in flags) we turned off the railway and headed across the ...
