Stayed at Tea Bush for 3 nights in Dec 2012. It is the a good walk up Haddons Road. The hotel has about 10 rooms with just the basic facilities. Most of the hotels have a colonial structure and Tea Bush is no exception. Rooms are quite large. Hot water and other facilities were fine. But a change in the linen wold definitely help in improving the ambience. Stayed in a room where I had a view of the restaurant.
Gregory lake is about 15 min walk from the hotel.
The restaurant of the hotel has a fantastic view of Nuwara Eliya and Adams peak. The food was very good with and the stewards were exceptional. Most of the veggies are grown in their back yard and were by fresh and delicious. Loved the French Onion Stew and the Grilled chicken was awesome. They also made wonderful breakfast arrangements when we left early morning for Hortons Park. If it wasn't for their advise we would have to probably remain hungry till mid afternoon.
The hotel is managed by Mr.Lal who is a real sweet heart and he went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. Loved the peace and quiet of this place. Will definitely recommend. Ask for the room with a view of Nuwara Eliya, you'll love it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tea Bush Hotel is a boutique type hotel of 10 comfortable rooms, situated in Nuwara-eliya, the little England of Sri Lanka. The original planter’s granite bungalow, “Shelborne”, as it was then known built in the 1800’s, where most of the hotel rooms are housed adding to the old world charm of the hotel, was the residence of the superintendent of Haddon Hill Tea Estate.All rooms are provided with hot and cold water and room heaters are optional. Ample parking space coupled with drivers’ quarters is a boon for the tour operators. The large well appointed restaurant serves delicious food for both in-house guests as well as walk-in guests. Room service is also available on request. The limited number of rooms makes every guest a special one for the hotel. The high elevation of the hotel above the town makes the view from the rooms and the restaurant of the surrounding hills, Nuwara-eliya town and the Lake Gregory to be quite breathtaking. Mt. Pedro or Pidurutalagala, the highest peak in the Island is close at hand. One could get a grand view of Adams Peak or Sri Pada, the famed holy mountain by climbing the Single Tree Hill just behind the hotel.Guests on their own may visit the Victoria Park and the Lake Gregory which are just walking distance from the hotel, while hiking trips may be arranged by the hotel to the surrounding hills. Guided day tours may be arranged on request to the Hakgala Botanical Gardens with its famed rose beds or to the Horton Plains, the National Park among the clouds at an elevation of 7000 feet, and perhaps a peep down the Worlds End, the 3000 feet sheer precipice.All this would make your stay at the Tea Bush Hotel linger in your memories for long years to come. ... more less
