Lonely Planet review
Perched atop St Andrews Rd, and possibly the highest hotel in the land, this place has superb misty- mountain vistas and an eclectic decor combining 1970s retro and numerous buffalo heads. It’s all enough to make you forget you’re in a tropical country. It’s worth paying extra for a balcony with views.
Our independent authors have visited Rising Lion Guesthouse and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Nuwara Eliya.
