When we entered the Nuwara Eliya City suddenly the thunder showers and the winds started to come down hard on us. We thought that our Vacation was ruined because of the bad weather. But it all changed the moment we stepped in this wonderful Hotel. Right from the beginning until the last minute of our stay we did not feel... More

While the experience of staying in converted tea factory is unique, I am not sure the hotel offerings merited the expense and time. The hotel staff was friendly and courteous. I would encourage other travelers to take advantage of the two-hour hike through the tea estate to truly get an appreciation for the life of the workers. Also, no matter... More

An old tea factory changed to become an amazing hotel, you feel like you are in another world, in the middle of tea fields, nice view, nice rooms, great lobby, but the breakfast is not super, but it's fine.

Awesome location. Very quite and laid back. the decor is very British colonial. make sure to carry formal dress code for dinner. Enjoyed the welcome tea. Loved the electricity generator, elevator and wind mill. they have a good collection of DVD, make sure you carry HDMI Cable to play from laptop to LCD.

This is an old tea factory converted into a hotel. The road to the hotel from the main road is a single track one and takes around 20 minutes drive. We stayed here for one night. The hotel is situated in the middle of a tea plantation and from the outside looks no different from the many tea factories you... More

A must go destination if you like Tea! It was a real Tea processing plant converted into a 4 Star hotel. The route up to the hotel is scenic and create a nice atmosphere, the hotel will arrange for you to be a tea picker for a day if you are interested. The rooms are decent sized and we had... More

To reach the hotel seemed like mission impossible because of the twits and turns up in the hills, huge tea plantation fields along the way. We had a deluxe toom at the 3rd floor quite spacious and beautiful view of the landscape. The hotel design was all wrong , like the toilet for example the toilet paper was too low... More

The drive up to this hotel is long but lots of beautiful sites to see. We had a superior room which is definitely worth it. You get huge windows which you can see 3 different views. Make sure you watch the surise from your room. We were only there for 1 night, in the 3rd floor. We had a massage... More

The story behind the hotel is interesting it self to make it a nice stay. Whilst getting there is a bit of an issue the atmosphere is great once inside. The food and service is excellent and the flavors are different from other parts of the country (maybe due to height factor.) Walking around the surrounding tea plantation is a... More
