A front view of the Grand Hotel, Nuwara Eliya: 'There are few hotels in the East which command the advantages of this well-known hostelry. It is situated 6,200 feet above sea-level, in a magnificent climate, and in close proximity to golf-links which are said by experts to be the best east of Suez. The hotel stands on 17 acres of ground, and there are 7 acres of kitchen garden, whilst there is a private dairy pleasantly situated on high land.' (Wright 1907, pp. 832-833).
