Disorientated after a long flight and hair-raising drive at night from the airport we found this beautiful guesthouse to be an oasis of calm. Arriving along dark lanes through the coconut plantation with our driver having to stop frequently to ask for directions, we were becoming slightly concerned about where we were going but we needn't have worried. Greeted by...

We spent two nights at Horathapola Estate having landed from the UK at 6pm and after a 90 minute drive from the airport. Horathapola provides a gentle introduction to Sri Lanka, being set in a colonial style home on an active coconut plantation. We relaxed; swam; walked round the local village with a guide from the hotel staff; and enjoyed...

We arrived early (7AM) after an overnight flight and had a very warm welcome from Raj and the team. We were given the use of a bunglaow room until our room in the main block was ready. We could have a shower, get changed and generally relax on the terrace and by the pool. The setting was idyllic - beautiful...

This place is so lovely and peaceful after a long journey. The gardens are full of many birds singing, the pool is great, the service was excellent, the food delicious and the people were so friendly and kind. It far exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Wish we had stayed longer.

This is a truly wonderful place to stay in Sri Lanka. The staff are excellent, greeting us with cold coconut juice to drink which was most welcome after a long tiring journey. We stayed in one of the bungalows in the grounds and it was very comfortable and well equipped in traditional Sri Lankan style. The mansion house is beautiful,...

Arrived at 6am after a 14 hour journey from the UK. They showed us to a garden bungalow where we slept until noon, at which time they kindly provided brunch for us before moving us to a 1st floor room in the main house. Great room with 2 double beds and extensive veranda. The grounds were extensive, with many options...

We stayed here just before Christmas. It was an ideal first stop after a long flight from the UK. This small quiet boutique hotel is well run, with very pleasant and attentive staff. It took us a couple of days to adjust to the jet lag and the staff were very accommodating in serving late breakfasts and generally fitting in...

This was an ancestral home converted to a hotel, but cannot be rated in the luxury boutique hotel category. A good place for a private holiday, without the frills of a five star hotel. Adequately staffed and you can do your own menu for meals provided it's local cuisine. Suitable for a group of 5 families to enjoy quality time...

A wonderful place to stay with excellent hospitality. We enjoyed the guided walk around the village and bullock ride to see the 50 acre plantation. The food was delicious, rooms large and very comfortable and gardens beautiful. Fully justifies its status as Asia's best classic hotel
