We came here to rest after our flight from Paris. Our room was just magnificent with a bathroom the size of many bedrooms in other hotels. So a fantastic location and peaceful surroundings but it was the staff who made it special. They were so helpful and eager for you to enjoy their country. We sat by the pool and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our holiday. A great place to recover after an 11 hour flight from London.

This a very relaxing plantation House in a beautiful estate. Start or end your holiday here. Very attentive staff. Lovely Sri Lankan food. Have a lesson in the kitchen by the chef. Take a trip around the estate in a buffalo cart with a guide with very good knowledge of the estate.

We stayed here for the first two nights of our honeymoon in Sri Lanka and it was exactly what we needed - a quiet, peaceful place to relax and reflect on our wedding and get an introduction to the country and particularly the food. We enjoyed fabulous Sri Lankan curries, sambhar and wattalapam - a traditional dessert, with the opportunity... More

This was our first night in Sri Lanka after the long flight. Horathapola is a small colonial plantation house built in the 1920's. Its consists of the main building with another two separate bungalows next to it. There is a magical swimming pool which simply blends into the grounds, you've probably never seen one like it before! The rooms are... More

Our first visit to Horathapola 5 years ago was wonderful, so it was an obvious choice for a return visit. This time, we took my sister, so booked two rooms, the Family Suite - two charming double rooms, with their own bathrooms and a massive veranda. It felt like our very own wing and we loved it..

Five adults stayed for four nights from 25 February. It is a very pleasant old colonial style hotel with extensive grounds, helpful staff, and really wonderful food. It is not near to major attraction sites, but most of the island is reachable. If going to use the trains I would advise booking before going on holiday, as the first and... More
