“Beautiful Little England”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

.
We stayed here for two nights and could have stayed a lot longer. The trip there was interesting and the cooler weather was a god send. Our room was down stairs which was fine and we were offered one on the top floor the next day but were happy where we were. The room’s upstairs are bigger and the hidden room is huge and very comfortable. The gardens are superb and the setting is pure magic, just watching the birds and squirrels. The Estate Manager Dr Faris is a true asset to the company he is devoted to this estate and has so many plans for its future. I loved the house so warm and comforting, meal times are at the communal table and that's a nice touch as everyone tells of their travels it's a nice get together in the evenings. Food is excellent. My husband had a game of golf at the local golf course and enjoyed it. I was not well for that day and Vijay took very good care of me, nothing was too much for him, it was very much appreciated. There is no Wi-Fi this is a place to unwind from the modern world, pure relaxation. There are plenty of walks to do.

I have read many of the reviews and have nothing to add. This place is so lovely and peaceful The staff was so friendly, the food delicious, and the gardens magnificent. We stayed for 2 night but could happily have settled down for a week. The road to Warwick Gardens was no problem - brought a bit of excitement to a long and dreary days drive.

This Boutique hotel owned and managed by Jetwing is a place you will not regret visiting and staying. The Rooms and facilities are just fantastic. The care you get is unbelievable, Mr. Faris and his team will do everything possible to make your stay memorable. Saman and Wije are fantastic and they look after you so well,Their caring ways made all the difference for us to enjoy every moment at Warwick Gardens. The Chef produces some fantastic cusine. The House keeper does her part very well. We will definitely return. I have been telling my friends about this new find.
Congratulations Mr. Hiran Cooray.
Best regards

The remote setting was isolated and offered no easy access anywhere once deposited in this tea estate valley the rooms had no heat and an erratic hot water system. Both rooms we tried had malfunctioning toilets. The downstairs room had no privacy so while we were isolated we had to keep the curtains drawn and listen to the sound of people walking and talking outside our room. This in a scenic rural valley was cruel
There are no listed prices and one assumed that the group dinner, arranged seating, no menu, was included in the bill. Not so
The linens are not 5 star quality, nor is anything else about the place, but it is close. If the weather had been nicer we might have felt better about the place, but not at for the prices charged
Checkout time , when people with adding machines and poor language skills and little manners came out of nowhere to create bills
If the other guests are fun then the experience could be special but otherwise you are trapped

Room Tip: Don't take the,downstairs room

Breathtaking location away from the hustle and bustle. Getting to the cottage was an adrenaline rush. From arrival, we were treated like royalty with personalized service from the cottage butler. The food was wonderful and we loved the fact that dinner was had with all the hotel guests. We met some great people.

Would highly recommend this hotel.

Warwick Gardens is an interesting house, standing in pleasant gardens all set in a beautiful location. We stayed in the Master suite, at the front of the house this is a good sized well-appointed room taking full advantage of the magnificent views down the valley below.
The building interior has a very tired rather than period feel, and refurbishment seems to have been driven by budget rather than quality. There are four nice benches in the garden, but with only one set of cushions so relaxing can be somewhat uncomfortable.
Meals were no more than average and getting a drink could be a slow job waiting for some anonymous gentleman with the keys, presumably the same individual who locks away in cabinets all the books and magazines in the “library”, and certainly the man who demanded to see our travel voucher when we were leaving!
We moved here after three nights at Jetwing Vil Uyana and find it difficult to believe how these two hotels could possibly be operated by the same company. The manager referred to in other Warwick reviews was not in and evidence, and with the exception of Vijay there was none of the service ethos we found at Vil Uyana. This property has enormous potential, but Jetwing really need to get a grip on things.

On our way to The Warwick Gardens we were told that our rooms were not available as there had been a mix-up at Head Office. We booked this hotel about nine months previously. We refused to go to an alternative hotel and eventually we were given two rooms. We were up-graded to a very nice room but then were asked to move rooms for our third night. The food was very nice but eating together with the other guests in the dining room which was in semi-darkness was a bit like a 'murder/mystery evening. Breakfast was the best, and the staff were eager to please. Take some warm clothing as it is a bit cooler in the mornings and evenings. If you are going to this area by train take some pens for the children who come and wave to you on the train. They ask for pens or sweets.

Room Tip: We spent two nights in the 'Secret Room' which was very nice then one night in a room on the...
