Firstly a huge thanks to "Emma Horne Travel" for suggesting we stay here. A beautiful colonial tea plantation which has a stunning location and wonderful staff. My family and I visited during the 7th to 10th August. We were immediately made welcome by Husna (Estate Owner), Parveez (Estate Manager) and James (Guest Coordinator). We were allocated the bedrooms in the... More

Kind of typical European B&B kind of accommodation maintaining its antique look, decor and surroundings. Very comfortable to stay. Providing excellent food - breakfast to dinner. Very good staff and chef prepares food as desired.

Before I write anything else a disclaimer, I haven't visited the property but below mentioned is the reason why. We were planning a family trip in September and were excited about spending quality time at this absolutely stunning location. However I sent in an inquiry but didn't receive any response 2-3 days later I decide to call them (Monday morning)... More

We are no tea lovers or connoisseurs but something about this place makes you fall in love with it. A love of contrasts maybe, remote luxury, a home which is a hotel which is a home and the longish yet picturesque drive from the station/airport to Glenburn which can be a little tiring and the equally energizing ice tea offered...

My travel consultant told me that there is something special about Glenburn but I was not fully expecting the amazing experience awaiting me. I have stayed at some really special places over the years but Glenburn is right up there with the best of these. I stayed for three nights on a month long tour of Bhutan and Northern India... More

The charming hostesses, Victoria & Aurielle. The refined and pedigreed estate manager, Parvez. The silent, yet efficient and courteous staff. All of these complement the greenery of the tea estate and make for a wonderful experience at Glenburn...
