as a family with two teenagers on our first trip to Sri Lank we recently stayed here. We couldn't fault the welcome, the food and the bedrooms. Everything was spotless and the staff were really helpful. The Trevene is a wonderful old bungalow that oozes nostalgia. That said the comfort of the beds and the quality of the food was... More

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.

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 !
