This place is heaven on earth. The Weir House is on top a hill with a flowing river just below the property. You can hear the calming sounds of the river as you sleep which was a definite plus for me. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The manger was very knowledgable about the history of Sri Lanka and... More

The images really don't do enough to capture the beauty and essence of The Weir House. What an incredible property! We traveled as a group of 11 friends and had the most amazing stay. The food was lovely and our only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer.

A beautiful residence catering to just one family at a time. The staff are so welcoming and accommodating, and the place is beautiful. It is about an hour from Kandy, so we were hesitant, but this is well worth the distance. Improvised dinner was delicious, and we had an impromptu nature walk in the morning, with great sightings.

A wonderful relaxing one night stay in a cozy spacious homely atmosphere. The staff was very obliging and accommodating. We would like to return for a longer stay. The only negative thing is to climb all the steps after a long weary period of traveling . Could have done it in my youth, but not fit enough any more. All... More

The property truly represents the owners - calm, serene, open and mindful. We had a great time at the property - relaxed, walked and also did some sightseeing around the place. The decor and the surroundings were simplistic, classy and soothing. The place is very well maintained and the staff took great care to keep it clean, insect free and... More

We were 4 adults and 2 children under 5 stayed for 4 nights at this wonderful villa in March 2016. The villa is situated in the hills of Ulapane in a very large property with no neighbours. It s a magical setting with fruit and spice trees surrounding the villa. A quiet place for relaxation with a swimming pool to... 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
