This unique hotel has retained many of the original features of the tea factory, enhanced by some ingenious architectural features that create a truly unique atmosphere. The hotel is set in the most stunning surroundings comprising tea plantation and fertile plots of land, many of which grew the organic fruit and vegetables served in the restaurant. I was taken by...

We came to the tea estate in search of locations visited by my wife's aunt when she had been here in WW2. It turned out that her host had been one of the managers here in the 30s, as shown on the board in the Tea Bar. We had booked lunch in advance, although it was not busy on the... More

Although we are vegetarian, she found that there were quite a few things on the menu she liked. She loves spices , so the menu was suitable for her. My husband ordered... More

We were impressed with the quality of the food and the service in the two occasions we went here for dinner. Recommendation though is to go for the local dishes. We tried the western choice, of steak and while it was still good, it wasn't as great as the Sr Lankan dishes.

Tea factory hotel is little out of the way from the main road to Ragala. But the distance traveled is compensated with the food you consume. It was delicious.

Long winding road ended at the Tea Factory. Fabulous location with stunning views. A converted tea factory housing much information about the tea factory in its prime. Many original features. Room was small but comfortable. Bathroom was slightly below standard expected for a deluxe room. The hotel was quite noisy and we could hear people outside and from the room... More
