After an overnight flight from London, and a longer journey from the airport than it should have been (our driver took a wrong turn - we saw parts of Sri Lanka not on the itinerary!), our holiday really began when we drove through the gates of this wonderful estate and were greeted by the charming members of staff. Minutes later... More

This old planter's house is set in a plantation of pineapple and coconut is a short journey from the international airport at Colombo. We staid in a bungalow near to the main house. It was set for two groups though we had it for ourselves. Finished in timber the buildings are old but well kept. There was a verandah overlooking... More

This was the perfect place to begin our holiday in Sri Lanka in mid-January 2015. We had two nights to unwind after our flight and acclimatise to the heat after January in London. We loved the peaceful and very beautiful setting, the house, the pool and the activities. The house is very spacious, as are the rooms, bathrooms and verandahs.... More

We were so glad to have stayed two nights here rather than the one night suggested by our tour operator. Having arrived on an overnight flight from London and been driven here it was a perfect place to unwind and acclimatise. The staff were charming and the food superb. We were taken for a delightful walk through the village, driven... More

We stayed here at the end of our Sri Lankan trip and had mixed feelings about it. The room had our first mosquito net in 3 weeks, and our first mosquito attack. We found dead ones inside the netting. The manager sorted this out next day with some repellent, although the only way to plug it in was by unplugging... More

We stayed at Horathapola for two nights following our flight from the UK. It was a truly peaceful and relaxing experience, just perfect after two flights and a car journey. The staff were so kind, welcoming and friendly, and the food was wonderful. For us, this was an idyllic start to a holiday. We went on a most interesting village... More

Our first night in Sri Lanka was spent at this attractive place. Our room was huge with a balcony overlooking the stylish pool. Acres of beautifully maintained wooden flooring and wicker planter chairs transport you to a bygone era. In late October we were the only guests and were treated like royalty and welcome to use all areas of the... More

First two nights in this beautiful colonial type rural setting was a magical introduction to Sri Lanka. Extremely peaceful and relaxing, the type of place you could start to write a book even! All the staff are very welcoming and attentive and the rooms are superb which set a very high bar for our three other places we stayed. Go... More

This was the perfect place for my family and I to regroup after an 11hr followed by a 4 hr flight(s). Very nice grounds. Outstanding attentive staff. We all enjoyed cooking a Sri Lankan dinner with our fellow travelers. The bull cart ride into the coconut grove was fun. We wish that we spent more than one night here.

What a glorious place - we arrived at four in the morning to such a wonderful welcome. told not to worry about breakfast just wake when suited us.
