We stayed here for 3 nights in January. Hotel itself has a very friendly look and the staff was very helpful. Room we got was clean and the modern look really impressed us. Food was fabulous. surrounding was very calm and quiet. This is an excellent place to stay for your budget. Highly recommended.

We stayed for only one night. Great location with great tea fields view. Staff is very warm and friendly. We tried the restaurant as well, fast service and delicious food. the only negative comment that i can make is our room was a little bit cold which is why we used our blankets.

From Colombo to Kandy and to Nuwara Eliya, the hotel was arranged by the tour operator. Clean and simple hotel, homely atmosphere, visited in Nov.2013. A small reception area and we were given room on the first floor from where we could enjoy the scenery. Number of other hotels on the hill top could be viewed although the hotel is... More

This was a one night stop after visiting Dambulla. It's up a steep hillside overlooking the resort town. Walking down into the town is not difficult but you will need a tuk tuk to get back. The hotel has some quirky colonial features, with big fireplaces - that are obviously not used. The rooms are a bit dark and shabby... More

This is an old style british hotel. The location is good and rooms are clean. Unfortunately here we had our tour's worst dinner (untasty and unsalted boiled vegetables with unsalted rice). We were told by our driver that the management had just changed. We hope they will improve their skills as the hotel has a great potential.

I only stayed for one night as part of a tour, thankfully. I hate to leave bad reviews because the staff are lovely, but they clearly do not listen or acknowledge any feedback. I get that it's supposed to be old and British looking, but this is just plain neglect. So we arrived and it looks pretty from the outside,... More
