The Hotel, a former tea factory, is located in the highlands next to traditional tea plantations. A nice view is guaranteed. The rooms are equipped with eveything you need (Minibar, Tv, Heating and WIFI). However, the food can not be recommended!

After a majestic drive up the hill - you end up in the most remarkable location with views to behold. We were given a very nice welcome in the museum-like preserved factory setting. The staff were very efficient and friendly and were helpful in organising activities and dinner arrangements. We had a very good snack in the bar for lunch... More

What an amazing and unique place to stay! Very different from all previous hotels we stayed in but very refreshing to see. It's location is a bit cooler/wet than the other areas in sri lanka, but thats expected/needed for the best tea. Hotel has been converted from old tea factory, keeping all original features. It is quite a rural location... More

We unfortunately only stayed here for one night but it was a fun packed stay. We did tea picking which is must, which involved a 40 min tea picking experience, in a sari! A lovely lady showed us what to do and took some amazing photos for us. She then gave us a guided tour of the process and tea... More

Don't be put off by the appearance, from outside it looks like a corrugated shed, it has retained the features of the old tea factory. It was disappointing that on arrival they had all incorrect details on our booking in form and instead of printing a new one, I was told to cross out the wrong details and write mine... More

So... you're travelling through the area - this has to be the place to stay? The hotel is in a magical location in the middle of a tea plantation, a few kms away from the main road and with great views (weather dependent). The building itself is a refurbished tea factory. The rooms are colonial chic, comfortable if not a... More

We were a family of seven on a seventeen days Sri Lanka tour. This was our 4th stop on tour. The drive from Kandy to the hotel is so scenic . The hotel doesn't look much from outside but it's beautiful once you walk in. We had a nice warm welcome. Staff are really courteous and extremely friendly. Our rooms... More

After a journey up a twisty road, we arrived at the Tea Factory. Stunning views, impeccable service, beautifully clean rooms and a gorgeous meal in the train carriage made this a stay to remember. I particularly recommend a before-dinner cocktail!

Stunning. The staff were impeccable in the service they provided. The room was very clean with a lovely bathroom. We ate in the train carriage restaurant and it was a memorable meal. This hotel is a way out of the town and up twisty roads but is definitely worth the trip.
