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

This "hotel" sits up a very steep road with a view towards the race course and lake. From the outside the building looks promising, but once you walk in you can see a serious cash injection is required to bring this to a level travellers would be expecting. We stayed in a room in the main building with a view... More

The trouble with having a generous lonely planet review and charging way over the odds is that everyone will be disappointed. This is a basic, budget stop that should be charging a fraction of the price and then it's guests would be happier. We had no hot water, no wifi, slept 2 to a (slightly damp) bed, the kettle plug...
