Amazing experience staying here
Stayed here for 1 night whilst travelling around Sri Lanka on honeymoon. What a charming hotel. Surroundings are amazing, views are incredible, staff were excellent so really enjoyed our stay. Had the high tea which was very good and reasonable. Did the tea picking experience which we really enjoyed, but was unfortunately cut short as we had to leave for our next destination. Food in the buffet restaurant wasn’t as good as we had during stays at other hotels, but found some that we liked. Would definitely recommend a stay here if you can
Spot on other than the road to the Accommodation
This is a quirky place which endeavours to replicate the British Colonial age of the past. Personally I think the trousers to dinner is a bit odd when people where there in jeans and a t shirt!!!. However the food was superb both for dinner and lunch. The service goes the extra mile all over. Some of the reception processes are somewhat antiquated in this day and age and take an agenda still reply on paper and not technology. The room was lovely other than the climbing frame to have to get into the bath. Anyone with any element of mobility difficulties is going to struggle to get into the bath/shower. The mini organic tea factory was the best explanation of any tea making visits we made anywhere. We highly recommend this place other than the awful road to get to it from the town Main Street.
Lovely but remote.
Arrived late but staff very happy to help us settle in quickly. Dinner was beautiful (but don’t have any coconut samballa unless you’ve got an asbestos mouth!!! It’s HOT and I only had a tiny bit. Waiter was lovely tho and brought me some yoghurt to take the heat away). Service fabulous if not a tiny bit subservient (not necessary for me). Slept like a log in the very comfortable bed. Breakfast equally good with lots of choice. Just a bit of a trek to get there. Seemed to take forever.
Exceptional top class service. Lovely surroundings with tea plantation views. It is a tea factory converted so it has an industrial feel which is part of the charm. The rooms are lovely but could do with a renovation especially in the bathroom. However, to be fair we have to remember it is the original building. It has a lovely outdoor area to make the motif the views. Remember to pack warmer clothing. The tea plucking tour was fun but what we especially liked was the fine dining dinner on the train carriage. It is pricey but the food is exceptional and it is a different experience. The only real negative is the lack of sound proofing but I don’t see how that could be changed and that it is a bit out of the way about half an hour from Nuwara Eliya on a windy skinny road . Overall, lovely especially for a special occasion.
high end luxury and worth it
- high end place hidden in the tea plantations of Kandapola - 4-5 star service and stay, worth the money - Great splurge as a couple, solo, family - I ate too much because the food is top class - Great lounge/bar area - Think of it as a getaway where you can stay on the property for multiple days, recharging your soul
