I stayed at this guest house last week. I had read loads of comments regarding the guesthouse but still went with open mind. Kent guesthouse was absolutely great. It’s cheap, yet you have everything you need and more. The guest house is very close to Nuwara Eliya CBD. The food at the premises offers a great service and value for money. I had a double room that was clean, included free access to internet. Room was cleaned every day and the hotel was very tidy overall. Kapila and his staff were helpful and willing to help the guests anytime. The breakfast had everything you wanted, to Sri Lankan or Western taste and the meals at lunch and dinner were equally cheap and very large size. I would strongly recommend Kent guesthouse to anyone wanting to explore Nuwara Eliya at lower budget but with great service. You can also book trips to Horton Plains and sightseeing tours around Nuwara Eliya at affordable prices.
I would recommend hiring a scooter for day for adventurous tourist. Speak to Kapila and he will arrange you a scooter. This was a great way to explore Nuwara Eliya. I also went on a trip to Horton Plains with a tour operator organised by host Kapila. I found that was great value for the money. I will definitely stay in Kent guesthouse when visiting Nuwara Eliya next time.
