Everything i came back for, was still there, only better. Ebel the manager & his team warmly welcomes us.... More

The gardens are very tidy and the rooms are comfortable. Leslie the chef cooked our meals and they were delicious -... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights over Chinese New Years and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is a modernist villa built into the jungle; it has beautiful rooms and a lovely wait staff / caretaker. The food was delicious. And they were helpful in picking us up from the train station. There is no wifi which was... More

We stayed at Weir House during Easter with our 3 children. The house is located in a small valley above Ulapane with beautiful countryside around it. The highlights of our stay were the food (which was a great introduction to Sri Lankan food for us all) and our walk along the irrigation canal (just below the house). We also had... More

The house is built on a gradient hill, located next to a river. The sound of running river, the lush spice trees around the house and the birds chirping were all very soothing and idyllic. We were 4 and had the house to ourselves. We visited Kandy, did water rafting, climbed Adam's Peak and toured around the tea plantations. But... More

Renting a whole house with staff in a wonderful rural environment was an unexpected highlight of our tour of Sri Lanka. The house is beautifully furnished; the food feels like real 'home cooking' and the team could not do enough for us.

We have just returned from Sri Lanka and spent four nights with our four children at The Weir House. We felt so warmly welcomed by the attentive staff who ensured our every need was met. From the beautiful house with its luxurious accommodation, well stocked bookshelf/DVDs, the rain forest surroundings, atmospheric candlelit evenings, afternoon teas and homemade cakes, the wildlife...

This place is a real heaven and if anybody has such possibility, definitely should stay there! First of all the property designed by famous Sri Lankan architect Mr Geoffrey Bawa, is a real masterpiece. It's absolutely stunning - very interesting building with tastefully decorated interiors situated in very peaceful and beautiful area. This is the place where you can truly... More

Thank you for your kind words and we are so glad that you had a great time at the Weir House. I just wanted to correct one small misconception and that is that the house was designed by a student of Geoffrey Bawa and not by Bawa. Thank you for your lovely comments on the food and service and we... More

The Weir house is a private holiday home that is rented out when the owners are absent. We received a warm welcome from Lucian who manages the home with the help of a cook and house boy who were also on hand to greet us with the best cold watermelon/lime drink of our trip.
