4 out of 5! What a location and what a break! The price you pay is for the location, hospitality and experience. One of my best stays ever! Had no wifi or even TV/Radio but I have no complaints for that is why we chose this kind of place. All you need is a good book in one hand and... More

Difficult place to review - the views are jaw-dropping, the service very attentive (you effectively have your own butler), the cottage is vast and clean and the food was excellent - candle-lit rice and curry dinners; breakfast overlooking virtually the entire south of Sri Lanka. However, the mountain top setting means that there are strong winds at most times and... More

Just go, experience colonial living in a unique setting without insane prices and a homely feel The butter cake gie afternoon tea is a must as are fish rolls and the rice & curry. A good bottle of scotch is worth throwing in the bag. Only beer served here on and its in top of a hill

I stayed 2 nights Mountain View Holidays, in Aerie cottage, which could have been transported directly from the English cottages, furniture included! Very warm welcome by houseboy and then the chef came and asked what I would like for dinner. The service was one of the best I have ever had. But the best thing about this place was the... More

My family visited these cottages second time, for me it was first. We all felt in love with the place. Three cottages are located on top of the hill with each villa being secluded and with own private beautiful panoramic view of the tea valley below. The cottages remind you of old times with a fire place, old furniture, and... More

Staying at Kelburne was the highlight of my trip in Sri Lanka. We stayed in Wildflower cottage, home from home, with spectacular, breathtaking views at all times of the day, and a feeling that you're truly getting away from the hustle and bustle and being amidst nature, whilst being supported with excellent service. All the staff at Kelburne uphold the... More

We stayed here in August with our two children aged 8 and 14. This is just the most amazing place. We were in Aerie Cottage and the views were amazing. The staff were excellent and the cottage was just wonderful. This had to be the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka.

Our family of five stayed in Aerie. The views were simply breathtaking - we had breakfast on the veranda, with the tea plantations right beside us. The service and food were excellent, and the presentation immaculate with fresh flowers in the intricately folded napkins at mealtimes. From here it was easy to take a tuktuk along to the nearby tea... More

What a marvellous place! A 1930s former planters bungalow, interior designed extraordinarily accurately and 5200 feet up – one has a vertiginous view of the bottom of the plains below and, in the distance, the Indian Ocean. Food is great (served by one's personal chef and bellboy) and temperatures are pleasantly cool, given the altitude. The bungalow is surrounded by... More

We stayed in Aerie cottage, which could have been transported directly from the English countryside, furniture included! Very warm welcome by the staff ( houseboy and cook). We arrived in the evening so only appreciated the next morning the fantastic views. Our houseboy provided fantastic service even anticipating what we would need, we had a delicious meal in the evening... More
