Wonderful service, lovely atmosphere. The rooms are large and comfortable, maybe a little rough around the edges but so much of the place is original to colonial times and I suspect it is hard to maintain. The real highlights are tea on the lawn, and drinks by the blazing fireside in the evenings. It creates such a nice atmosphere it... More

The hotel is a really cozy place to stay and relax for several days. We made a reservation by phone with Sydney, who is most helpful and friendly and everything went smoothly. We stayed three nights, one in a standard double room, which was already very spacious with nice furniture and very clean. After that we changed to one of... More

The Trevene hotel brings us back to colonial times, with its original ambient. Staff is helpfull, they even lighted up the fireplace in the room so that we could really enjoy our time. Little garden is a perfect place to have your cup od tea and recall tour memories from visiting tea plantages.

Great, calm and comfortable place for stay in Nuwara Eliya. In 5 minutes you are in downtown of nice colonial town. Very good, kind personnel, who prepares great breakfast and traditional Ceylonese tea. Thank you for nice experience.

The trevene hotel is a quiet hotel in an ancient colonial house. Nissa the manager, french and english speaking, is considerate person. If the weather is no good, you can stay in the comfortable room, in the veranda with a cup of tea or besides the fireplace. A very nice place !

We stayed for 3-4 nights in June 2014. The hotel itself is a lovely colonial type hotel that has been updated in parts and looks fairly well maintained overall. Our room was small but adequate and comfortable especially the bed. Bedding was nice and warm no need for heater. The bathroom was clean even if a little ratty and in... More

We stayed here a little while ago, and it looks as if not much has changed! The property definitely needed an upgrade then (bedroom and bathroom were quite basic and tired, ditto bed). The staff was friendly and efficient, but the prices very expensive for what was delivered compared to other places we stayed in Sri Lanka. We paid luxury... More

Great location as it offers peace yet the... More

The township of Nuwara Eliya is in itself, like an idyllic diorama, disconnected from a larger Museum exhibit and comfortably displaced in the highlands of Ceylon. Utterly oblivious to the world around it. Now, I'm not a practising 'Psychiatrist' however, it is my own opinion when I state that Nuwara Eliya appears somehow irrelevant to the greater world, yet curiously... More

We spent here 1 night and organized walking trip on the Horton Plains. The hotel is in the british style historical building. Nice, but our feeling was the last renovation also was until the british rules... Definitely needs some maintenance, especially in the bathroom. We had a problem with the cleanliness in the bathroom too. The breakfast package for the... More
