Our list of cheap hotels in Nuwara Eliya you can consider when you explore Sri Lanka.
There are two things to consider when looking for cheap hotels in Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka to stay – location and price. Some travelers opt to stay near the town center while others prefer to stay near the tea plantations or to some other tourist attractions.
Gregory Lake Holiday Home
I opted to stay at Gregory Lake Holiday Home because of its very affordable price and its convenient location near Gregory Lake Park. I only paid around Php1,000 (US$20) for a comfortable room good for two people. There were hostels which offer dorm type accommodation but I prefer staying alone so I paid a little higher. Gregory Lake Holiday Home is about 10 minutes by tuktuk to the town center. It has a quiet neighborhood and close to a tea plantation. The owner of the guesthouse was accommodating and friendly.
