A small family run hotel with very friendly staff and a good restaurant with a superb view on the city. the family room was a bit humid and dark but we slept well and were in a very quiet part of the city. The only slight negative is the last few meters on the road as it gets muddy and... More

Worth a visit for the view alone, simple breathtaking. There's a modern architecturally design platform that juts out into the steep valley. It's great for taking photos and helps to show the scale of the vista. The architecture of the hotel and restaurant itself is modern, clean and minimalist, a nice mixture of polished concrete, glass and mahogany. The food... More

Very pleasant staff. You need a sense of humour to stay here. If you do you will have a laugh. Be advised that this place is walking distance to town but a fair trek back up a hill back. Also on our first night there was some really bad and loud kareoke till 11.30 pm coming from a nearby hotel.

Not sure where to start with this review.... our stay was definitely an amusing experience. Visited with our two young adult 'children' staying in two rooms. Turned up on the doorstep without a reservation to find the staff just about heading off as there were no other guests. We struck a deal, were given a complimentary cup of tea each... More

Our train from Colombo was delayed due to bad weather and when we finally reached the hotel, which is located at the top of Haddon Hill Road, we found it was closed for the night. Sounding the horn of our hired vehicle repeatedly, woke up one of the resident staff and we were able to check-in. The Hotel's Manager was... More

Hotel has excellent location dot on the road facing valley and ramboda fall, though it is far from water fall but excellent location. Food not good at all , choose this hotel for location only. Management has to look into its food part they need improvement. Room good but I found lights to be very dim need better lights.

We stayed two nights on half board. The web-site makes this hotel look like it stands alone among tea plants. It does not. It is at the end of a road with buildings all around. The bedroom views have been completely ruined by the dining room and kitchen complex which has been built at the front of this "tea plantation... More
