We stayed at Craigbank for 2 nights and we were extremely happy with the place and the staff. The gardens were beautifully maintained, as were the rooms and common areas of the bungalow. The staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and to see to our needs. And the food was excellent. Special mention must...

Put simple, it is like being at home while being almost 3km above sea level, situated in the mountains this guesthouse has a great vintage feel with good, helpful staff. Perfect for couples, small groups & singles.

The bungalow is absolutely gorgeous. Each room is individually and tastefully decorated and all are of a early good size. The garden is lovely too but we weren't able to enjoy it as we got there late and left at 6am the next day. We were going to the Horton Plains and the staff prepared a packed breakfast for us....

We were welcomed by the friendly staff on arrival with small bouquet and welcome drinks. The hotel is very clean and has personality; gets you back in time and make you feel "old time guest". I will prefer a little bit more of light. I asked for this and they responded positive. The chef is excellent and all his food...

Probably my best hotel experience ever. Friendly and extremely professional staff that don't get to close. Food is great. Good hospitality, with nice welcome-tea. What a garden! We did yoga outside in the afternoon. Thank you!

We stayed at Anilana Craigbank by accident. It looked just like any other estate bungalow at the first sight. The reception was warm and friendly. The rooms looked cozy with a large toilet. But things proved different later. The walls are covered with fungus and the window pelmets were covered with dirt and insect excreta. There were cobwebs in the...

Thank you for your feedback, however we need to dispute some of the statements made by you. as you were booked through an agent we cannot agree to the claim of rates you have mentioned, should you check on our web site you will see our rates to be much lower than mentioned. secondly you arrived quite late to Craigbank...

We spent two nights here with our three kids ( aged 7-10). We were given the South bedroom which is the master suite in the bungalow and the kids had the North room. We were welcomed by the friendly staff on arrival with small bouquets for all of us and welcome drinks. The manager and his team bent over backwards...

We had an unexpected stay as the hotel we thought we were going to had not received our booking, so the Sri Lankan agent booked our tour party of four into Anilana for the night, and we eventually arrived about 9pm after a long day travelling. We did not have an evening meal there. The staff at the bungalow were...

For one of our three nights in this large former colonial bungalow, we had the place to ourselves - what a treat. We read our books with an elegantly served cuppa beside a roaring fire in the lounge, ate a freshly prepared dinner in the elegant dining room (not quite Downton Abbey, but you get the idea!) and then retired...
