Olympus Plaza Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Haputale
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Haputale is usually only a pit stop but this time my designated guest house had mixed up bookings and I walked in , room less , tired cross and dying for a good cup of tea. Their Glace pastry top did serve a great ( and large) cup of tea and very nice eclairs. As I am confirmed sweet tooth this sealed the deal. I found they had rooms and stayed on the land side overlooking the Sleeping Warrior mountain. As I am a plains person, who enjoys the cool mountain air , one of the great pleasures was to see the mist rolling in sometimes several times a day.

The food is basically ok , the grilled fish is to be recommended over the pork chops which were bony . The salad is soused with too much mayonnaise from an eager hand. The rice and curry is good and the rates are very reasonable. The tea is exceptional . And I found the Glace pastry shop also serves very good chocolate cake and ginger cake. On the whole he bakery products including the breads are exceptionable .

The rooms are ultra clean and airy. The staff is ultra friendly and eager to serve. Definitely a good place to chill out for the mentally fatigued .For exercise there are all those long walks on the lovely mountain side.

Another plus was that birds tend to come to roost in the sheltered nooks outside my room so one gets literally a "nose view " of bird life. I had a very amusing views of the male trying to pervade the female that this is the best spot for house building - the female did not look very convinced though . I wonder if they ever got round to it.........

Room Tip: The Sleeping Warrioir mountain view is my choice

Very happy about our stay. From check-in to check- out the staff were very helpful and friendly. Location and the view is extraordinary. What we really liked is the concept of indoor kids play area and the mini theater. Enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend to others and look forward to visit again.

This simple hotel lies on top of a mountain which provides a nice view. It is close to the village so we did some shopping here. They took very good care of us. The first night we seemed the only guests and we ate a la carte. Our dinner was served in cast iron plates and it was very good. The next day there was a company which had a day out for its employees. Still they gave us every attention we needed. The boys kept smiling and the cook came to our table to ask what we thought of his food. A very nice and personal touch.

Completely ordinary hotel, nothing special, if you are a troubled turist it is nice place to stay for one night, but for longer I don't recomend it. The staff was also nice, but there is nothing special about this place. The same view what You have in hotel you can see outside :D

The boss spend a lot of money to renovate this hotel with Kids Playground, Gym and Cinema. It is situated at the edge where you can see the nice tea plantation.. The service is superb, one of the best we have in Sri Lanka. The manager is friendly and help you in all area he can. Food is good and price is reasonable. If you in Mountain Area, you do not want to miss the chance to visit this hotel and this town. Wi-fi is only in the lobby but it seem they are extended it in all the room. Do not miss this hotel when you come.
