My sister and I planned a whirlwind visit of SriLanka. We stopped here on our second night and felt like time had stopped. Lucien , the house manager is polite, warm and hospitable with helpful tips on places to see near the Weir House. The place is perfect with private accommodations for 3-4 couples/families. There is a pool although we... More

We cannot recommend this place highly enough. We were lucky to spend 3 nights over NYE here and we had the most relaxing and wonderful time. The photos do not do the house justice, it really is stunning. Sitting on an enormous cushioned swing in the lounge, reading our books whilst listening to the birds and river running outside through... More

Ulapane is truly off the beaten track (in fact, the dirt, uphill road to Weir House is an experience in itself!). The house is nestled among pepper plants, fruit trees, and coffee plants, and all you can hear is the sound of waterfalls and monkeys. The house manager, Lucien, gave us leech socks and took us on a tour of... More

The villa is an absolute gem. The pictures found on the website definitely are an understatement on the beauty of the architecture. Especially the living room came right out of a magazine, without being pretentious or uncomfortable. The staff are absolutely wonderful people. Leslie is a fantastic chef, Logis is the epitome of Sri Lankan friendliness,... Really nothing we could... More

We stayed at the Weir House for 4 nights and it was very relaxing. It is hidden amongst the hills and as the name suggests, is at the top of a weir. The house is modern and decorated tastefully. The gardens are very tidy and the rooms are comfortable. Leslie the chef cooked our meals and they were delicious -... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights over Chinese New Years and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is a modernist villa built into the jungle; it has beautiful rooms and a lovely wait staff / caretaker. The food was delicious. And they were helpful in picking us up from the train station. There is no wifi which was... More

We stayed at Weir House during Easter with our 3 children. The house is located in a small valley above Ulapane with beautiful countryside around it. The highlights of our stay were the food (which was a great introduction to Sri Lankan food for us all) and our walk along the irrigation canal (just below the house). We also had... More

The house is built on a gradient hill, located next to a river. The sound of running river, the lush spice trees around the house and the birds chirping were all very soothing and idyllic. We were 4 and had the house to ourselves. We visited Kandy, did water rafting, climbed Adam's Peak and toured around the tea plantations. But... More

Renting a whole house with staff in a wonderful rural environment was an unexpected highlight of our tour of Sri Lanka. The house is beautifully furnished; the food feels like real 'home cooking' and the team could not do enough for us.
