This is a guesthouse in a tea growing part of Sri Lanka located close to the Castlereigh reservoir which affords stunning views.The building itself is of a Colonial type with high ceilings and fireplaces.
Access is easy as it is situated just a few kilometres from Hatton which is a major stop on the railway. There are frequent buses from Colombo and even more frequent buses from Kandy. Just get to Hatton and hire a tuk-tuk to get to this guesthouse! If you want to do things in style hire a van to take you around the reservoir.
Access to the guesthouse is easy and there is even a wheel chair!
The rooms are comfortable and big with good bathrooms. The whole place is neat and tidy and the staff are very helpful.
The food, which you need to order in good time, is excellant and cooked to order. We had Sri Lankan style food.
There is no bar but there are plenty of liquor shops in the nearby town of Bogawantalawa. The staff will provide ice buckets!
It is a relaxing sort of place and a good place for walking or you can sit and watch the tea pluckers at work.
The gardens are well maintained with lots of exotic flowers.
Please note that this is a guesthouse and not a hotel. So don't expect the usual amenities like wi-fi, spa, massage and souvenir shops.
