We recently spent two nights at this iconic hotel fashioned within an old tea factory. From the initial welcome to the final farewell the staff took good care of us. Our spacious front facing room had magnificent views over the tea plantations with easy chairs placed in the window overlooking the front patio garden. The quality and variety of the... More

We were looking for somewhere for lunch to see the tea fields and this was perfect. Nicely designed hotel and well presented food - the 4 course set menu lunch was well worth the 2000rs. Very good service too.

This uniquely styled hotel restaurant is nestled up in the hills about 40 minute drive from the hill town of Nuwara Eliya in central Sri Lanka. The drive to the location is a picturesque one among tea trails and tea bushes with wisps of mist hanging in the valleys and nearby mountains. You arrive at a former aluminum clad factory... More

Excellent and very clean. The room temperature was just right without air con or heater. Staff were very friendly. Laundry was very reasonably priced and quick. The staff that came to pick our laundry were very accommodating, even helped with our runners which were wet from climbing Sigiriya rock the day prior. Thanks a lot!

Whilst staying at the Heritance Tea Factory you have a choice of two restaurants to eat at, the Kenmare is the main restaurant and is buffet style. Plenty of choice to choose from and service from the staff is quick and efficient.

Well, I just wanted to give a surprise, so I took my family towards Tea Factory, about 20 to 30 minutes drive from Nuwara Eliya, towards Kandapola, and turn off from Kandapola through the government potato farm, and passing the plantations, you will come to this beautiful tea factory converted into a star hotel. Its a place with all the... More

We tried many dishes including the following and thought all food were of a high quality - Black pork curry, Beef smore, Fish ambulthiyal, curried turkey, Achchaaru Chicken... More

We only had lunch at the Tea Factory Hotel but were captivated by the beauty of the location, how peaceful it was and the stunning use of the old machinery throughout the hotel. Our meal was excellent and the service was top class. They have a small tea factory on site and one is able to take a tour of... More

This hotel is situated in amazing place. It is a good place for the tourist. But the hotel management and the staff treat very badly for the tourist drivers. drivers are sleeping in a dormitory without good heating inside. they do providing blankets which are not clean long time. foods are terrible. I could say hell is better than this... More
