The Lonely Planet guide mentioned this hotel as almost the best in Haputale (for its price), so we made our reservation a day ahead. After arriving we found ourselves in an overpriced tiny and dark room facing the yard with a damp yet clean bathroom. No towels or soap, which I would actually expect after the price had risen threefold (in comparison to the 2012 prices mentioned in the guide).
We had the impression that having been mentioned and acclaimed, this hotel pretends to be something "better", and it is not, by no means. Was the room for half the price, I would not whinge and give it a 4star review - we stayed in better rooms for much better prices in the mountain region of Srí Lanka.
The meal we had was good, view from the restaurant was superb. The staff (or the guy who served us) was a bit too helpful, would not move from our table and pressed us into buying more services.
