This place could be really really fab. A great location for Adams Peak and covers a large land area. They could so much with it! However after two days/nights here it left me feeling more than a little disappointed. Especially given how much we paid for the rooms - i think it was something like £70 for the two nights....

We were horrified to read the reviews for other guest houses in Dalhousie on trip advisor : problems with cockroaches in the rooms, dirty sheets, bad service and it goes on... We almost felt like we wouldn't go to Adam's peak if we couldn't find something better than this!! Fortunately for us we found Punsisi rest house and can only... More

We stayed here before climbing Adam's Peak, and it was ideal for that. The rooms are fairly basic, as are the bathrooms, but the food is good, the service is friendly and the view from our balcony was amazing (although the steps up to the room weren't quite so welcome after 5 hours climbing up and back down Adam's Peak!!)....

We had a room with balcony with a lovely view on Adam's peak. The room itself was basic and acceptably clean; everything we needed for one night. Dinner and breakfast were included, but they charge a heavily 600 LKR for a beer. Wifi only available in the restaurant. The stairs up after climbing Adam's Peak were a pain, but the... More

Rooms clean but the steep flight of steps leading to cottages was not convenient. No way of contacting reception for anything and room service was non existant. Basic necessities in room was also not provided

The nearest rest house to Adam's Peak. Be sure to take the cottage, as the view is nice. Room rates are including dinner and breakfast. The staff are really helpful. After the climb they explained to me routes to take to Mirissa. Thanks to him my journey to Mirissa became easy and cheap.

Great location situated close to the start of the Adam's Peak trek. We stayed in the villa behind the main hotel right at the top of the hill. This had breathtaking views of the surrounding area and of Adam's Peak. Great to sit out on the veranda looking at what we were about to climb. The room done the job... More

Despite it was mentioned a free pickup, nobody was at the station. We arrived in Delhausie and saw the place. Even the entrance stairs were super dirty. The room was ok in space, but was dirty. Bedsheets were stained (see pic), mosquito net was broken...bathroom not so ok, cold and little water from the shower. Staff was formally friendly. Restaurant... More

Lonely Planet guidebook said it's so hard to climb hundreds of steps to your room after hectic Adam's peak climb, regarding rooms in this place. I thought, well it can't be that bad, can it? But it was, and then some. Even before I climbed Adam's Peak it was such pain to climb stiff steps all the way to the... More
