During a round trip we have a night in Lourdes INN hotel spent (2 were planned, but due to the poor weather the day before we could Horton plains not visit). So a strange hotel we have not yet seen. It is far from nuwara eliya, in the hills between tea plantations nearby of a small village. It is situated on the hillside, therefore you have to constantly climb stairs. The first us offered rooms have we denied: in the second bed to arrive, you had to cross the first climb; the bathroom was so tight, that you only with ... hoops on washbasin passed, around the toilet to reach; showers should have been a middle flood run. The second room was something spacious; the bathroom definitely not. There is no air conditioning, the window you can nevertheless do not open. The rooms have glass doors and window the hallway( curtains are there)-are so very badly soundproofed. To the dining room you have several floors down, he has the great charm a cafeteria. Meals had we à la carte, it was so la la. The only thing, what you undertake can, is a walk by Teefelder; without your own vehicle you have no opportunity, into town to come. The whole thing is so remote, that not even one of the ubiquitous Tuk-tuks dropping. Strange was also the staff: man carried Trainingshosen and baseball cap; the waiter etc. Looked therefore more like a Schlosserlehrling from, the owner seemed not very aesthetic. During our stay we saw, that other guests the night in this hotel generally refused and a other required. We were glad, that we on the next day again leave could.

In the context of a tour we have a night spent in the hotel. this is located on a hill with a wonderful view on the tea plantations in the immediate vicinity. You can a few beautiful Walks in the area and the tea plantations look at the nearby. There is also a Tamil village nearby with a small Hindu and a Christian Church. the hotel was very clean and probably really new. Everything is well maintained, the employees very friendly and the welcome you get (as usual in Sri Lanka) a cup of tea (free of charge) in the ... room. the bathroom was quite narrow, the shower hot, but only with moderate water pressure. the dinner was in the restaurant served, which was two floors below (stairs). There were only two other guests since, so that the servers we had to ourselves. The unfortunately annoyed since this the whole time next our table and maintained to clear something empty. the hotel lies on the edge of nuwara eliya so that a walk in the city center not so easy possible is. With a vehicle 5a 10 minutes it takes.
