We tried to book to King Fern and had several strange telephone exchanges. In the first, my wife called, and was replied that there are no rooms available. She had a strange feeling about the call, so, due to the lack of other suitable hostels in town I tried to call again 5 min later. Then, miraculously, there was a choice between 2 rooms. Several more phone calls were strangely hung up, and generally we got a bad impression of the place before setting foot on its doorstep.
We came to KF and saw that the fact that the place is made of wood (and very aesthetic!) is also one of its downfalls. In the first room we saw on the bottom floor every step of a person walking on top could be heard. The second room on the top floor wad exposed to city noises (very loud music all night) and the snoring of the person sleeping in the room below/next to us that woke us up in the night.
The room itself was fine, the shower was great, food was OK.

I strongly recommend this place!
The owner Mr. Nishantha will warmly accept you and make you feel home, just like you've been known each other for years. He'll also gladly help you with anything you need including information, tour booking etc. The place is fancy, beautiful, clean and safe and in a short walking distance to everywhere you need - and prices are reasonable.
So don't think twice - this is the place for a perfect stay.
Just be smart and book in advance, as it may get fully booked quiet quickly.
Thank's for everything, Mr. Nishantha :-)

We stayed at kingfern for one night only. The place is a stylish and cosy place with a warm atmosphere! The food we ordered was delicious. The owner of this place is a fun and warm-hearted guy who took very good care of us when one of my friends was unwell and needed to go to the doctor. He drove us there immediately and made sure we were alright. We would love to come back here again! Thank you, Nishan and Hitchy!!

We had a great room with a view over the stream and garden.
Surprising number of birds visited in fact more than we saw in Horton Plains!
The hotel has internet access and a variety of seating areas to eat or just chill. All pleasantly heated by a log fire in the evening
The food was good and served in the pine clad dining room.All the staff were very helpful.
Watch out for the manager with a great sense of humour!

Very nicely decorated common area with a lot a wood and a fire place. Great atmosphere. Nice garden with water running through. Double rooms for 3000 or 4000 Rs including breakfast, or 5000 for a family room. Booking in advance is highly recommended. We enjoyed staying here. Our room was to reach through a trap in the ceiling (first time in my life), was clean, had a nice big bed with a warm blanket but no furniture to put the luggage or cloths and view to the roof of the guest house (instead of to the beautiful garden). Food was good, well served and extremely nicely decorated with flowers. Congrats.
