“Small and cozy”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

This is a small property with a personalized service. It is a good hotel if you just want to chill out and not move about. It is quite a distance away from Nuwara Eliya but the road is scenic. A quiet 3-4 days vacation home. I would recommend this hotel. Rajesh Pillai

Amazing staff who'll make you feel comfortable and at home. Bumpy road but I don't really remember it as much I remember my time in the hotel. Beautiful place. Opening the windows at dawn felt like I was in a dream where clouds sneak in the room and fresh air fills your lungs..

Problems with the hotel include:
The heated pool was broken (but they did not advertise that it was broken).
They did not have a masseuse available when we wanted to get a spa (even though they advertise a masseuse).
Their billiard table does not include a full set of pool balls.
The hotel also is 1 hour away from the town of Nuwara Eliya.
No drivers' quarters.

My wife and I visited this lovely hotel late February 2014 and the review below is an exact match of our experience. Wonderful staff , amazing food, especially the rice and curry meal and the lovely afternoon teas as well as the early morning trip to Horton Plains however we cut our stay one night short ( 2 instead of 3) because of that horrendous road from NE - even our driver wouldn't subject his car to the road - would find it hard to recommend a stay here to friends without knowing that 16kms doesn't need to take 1+ hours.

I don't know how anyone can write a review of this hotel without warning others that you have to endure a horrible, bumpy ride on a windy mud road that is under construction and won't be finished for a long time yet. It took us 45 minutes of a nauseating ride by van from Nuwara Eliya at the end of a long day of driving from Colombo and Kandy. We arrived at the hotel all shook up, literally! The condition of the road means you're mostly marooned here. So you must know this, first, and be warned.

Having said that, this is a lovely small hotel, set in beautiful tea plantation scenery. The staff are friendly and try their best always. My wife and I stayed two nights, and the meals here were the best in our week in Sri Lanka. Chef Sanjay is a gem. His Sri Lankan rice and curry sets make for a fabulous spread of wonderful, varied vegetables and chutneys, with a choice of fish or meat curry. I could eat there every day for a month and not be bored!

I'm giving it four stars because of the staff and food. The room was pleasant and comfortable. It should be five stars if access was less harrowing, and would be three stars or less if staff or food falter. I wish we could have organized short drives to see more of the nearby area, the tea pluckers in action, or even visited the school the estate children walk to every day. But that awful road is just so off-putting. We left the hotel only once, for the must-do excursion to the incredible Horton's Plains.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in February during a tour of Sri Lanka. The hotel is a small and a very pleasant place to relax. The western-style menu was excellent and the Sri Lankan curries on the second night were the best we had on the entire trip - especially memorable jackfruit curry. Great chef and service from the two waiters was also excellent.

The only current downside is the major road repair programme taking place between the hotel and Nuwara Elia - around 15km under repair - which means a much earlier start if you are headed for the Horton Plains / World's End early one morning.

The keys to this hotel is that the service is excellent, the room is very nice, but it's NOT in Nuwara Eliya. It's actually a 30-40 minute drive around a windy hill.

Service: the staff were excellent. They were prompt every time we called them and were very helpful in terms of getting around town and timing. The food was okay, but not great. But there was a wide variety of food to choose from.

Value: The hotel was quite nice, but more expensive then what you get. You also have to pay to use their rackets for the tennis court, clubs for the mini golf, balls for the pool table…and the price wasn't cheap. The spa was good, but expensive…same price I'd have to pay in the States.

Sleep Quality: My husband and I slept great, however other people in our party complained that the beds were too firm.

Cleanliness: This is very important to me, a clean room. I was happy to see that the room was perfectly clean.

Location: This is the biggest problem with the hotel. Although it is beautiful with a great view and beautiful gardens, it was quite a drive from Nuwara Eliya. Driving fast it's at least 35 minute drive, but if the driver goes fast you get noxious. At a decent pace it can take up to an hour. Although the hotel is wonderful, because of the location, I probably wouldn't stay here again.

Rooms: Excellent rooms, with comfort and convienence. Nice shower.

Spa: services were expensive, but I got a very nice massage.
