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

Great location surrounded by the tea plantation. Great food and wonderful and ever helpful staff. Lots of activities organised by the hotel, so you don't need to go out. Spa was great too. Its a unique experience.

We ate dinner in the train carriage and had breakfast in the main restaurant. Dinner in the main restaurant is expensive for well executed international fare but the ambience and enthusiastic train conductor make it, just be prepared to play along :) Breakfast curry was some of the nicest we've had in Sri Lanka.

great food, good prices and service and great ambiance as well. Well worth the somewhat long journey up to the hotel.

The old tea factory converted into a hotel is a delightful place. A little away from the main town but good for a visit. The food was great and the setting perfect.

My only complaint would be that there were too many choices of food items. The leg of pork that was served with dinner was best I have ever eaten. With it I had many Sri Lankan curries and sambols. I enjoyed speaking with the young Sri Lankan cooks who stood behind the food stations. They were so eager to explain... More

The Tea Factory hotel and restaurant is a perfectly preserved original tea factory which has been converted into a stunning boutique hotel and restaurant. It is situated nestled among the tea plantations with incredible views, isolated and incredibly serene. The food is carefully prepared and delicious and the service excellent. Definitely worth visiting.

I urge you not to give attention to any of the positive reviews. They are all totally misleading. The food is not worthy for you pets. If you are stuck at the hotel for a night you are forced to dine here since there are no other restaurants you could get to. Either bring your own food or try to... More

The Tea Factory Hotel was simply astounding ! Its difficult to express in words - the hotel is above the cloud line so one actually drives through the clouds/ mists with the beauty of the hills and tea plantations all around. The actual hotel has retained its historic charm - main lobby has all the machinery etc. along with photographs... More
