Wonderful old colonial hotel in the heart of Nuwara Eliya. If you read about being not kid friendly, that's because they keep some old colonial rules alive! Loved the experience, having breakfast and listening to Laurence of Arabia in the background is gorgeous. Stay!

Hotel has a rich history as a club so interior has a heavy British flavor like a wood fire place. Nice hotel, especially outdoors. Great location and friendly staff. Wifi doesn't work well. Left the place with some wonderful memories.

Positives first, the food is excellent and the staff are more than willing to be helpful. We needed to change rooms as building works were taking place in the room next door, not to mention that the room smelled of B.O. This place is beyond stuck up with its antiquated rules. Fancy a drink on the lawn in the sunshine?... More

This is a real "club", founded in 1876. The hotel and the rooms appears "old", and of course you cannot find the same level you expect in a new structure. However, the old structure and furnitures in the rooms give a fascinating perspective, and we experienced a nice stay in an ancient atmosphere. The staff was extremely polite, even if... More

Memorable stay in a beautiful setting, a Scottish estate in Sri Lanka. If you embrace the random situations, you will be rewarded with quite a compelling experience in this living museum! Food is a bit pricey, service good but lacking some authenticity. Staff are happy to lend jackets and ties to lightweight visitors. Hot water bottle bed turndown service very... More

Classic British hotel old but very well maintained. Weather in the area is quite chilly and there is only one heater, so make sure you position it strategically. Ambience in the hotel is great, has the old British feel. Formal dinners served every night, you have to wear suits and will be served by waiters/waitresses. Breakfast is great, basic selection...

We stayed here for three nights and the experience was great. The colonial style, old-Ceylon way of living is just proper for the atmosphere in Nuwara Eliya. We especially enjoyed the beautiful garden, the dinner, the fireplace burning of the coconut wood at night. The staffs here are also very friendly and well-trained. Location is great, quite but not far.... More

Very nice hotel, maybe a bit expensive, but on the other hand finding a British club in Sri Lanka is almost priceless. Going there is an experience I’d strongly recommend, the only minus in our stay was that, not having a jacket and a tie, as per their rules we had to eat in a room separate from all other... More
