The hotel is a very old country house but not well kept. We had a door in the bathroom it was so old that you could see outside and all the paint was peeled of they cover the door with a long curtain. We like old heritage house but when it is well renovated .The dinning room and breakfast room would need a good renovation the floor are all crooked so they put a beige carpet to cover this up.
In the bathroomt there are no wall plug no mirror in the room. They give us 2 bottles of water on the arrival day only When we want to pay with credit card for our dinner they do not accept paiement by credit card and be aware they offer you dessert after your dinner whithout telling you it is not included it is not a big deal but it would of been nice to know about it. For all these reasons we were very disapointed. We spent $172 USD a night and would expect much more
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ferncliff perched on one of the highest points of Nuwara Eliya commands a view like no other of 'Little England'. This includes being set against the magnificent backdrop of Mount Pedro (Pidurutalagala), which at 2524 m (8,281 ft) is Sri Lanka's highest point. Just ten minutes walk from the Grand Hotel and the Golf Club, Ferncliff is uniquely placed to be the centre of your Nuwara Eliya universe which includes Horton Plains National Park, Tea Plantations and other locations of interest in the hill country. Deeds for the Ferncliff lands predate the founding of the first Nuwara Eliya settlement by Great White Hunter and Explorer, Sir Samuel Baker in 1846. The bungalow, now a heritage site, had its beginnings in the 1850s and the ghosts of Samuel Baker and his ilk still walk our expansive lawns hunting elephants, deer and wild boar to near extinction in the lush Nuwara Eliya valley. Today, with restorations that have retained its rustic charm, Ferncliff offers comforts that few bungalows in town can aspire to, and our team led by our chef with over 30 years of experience in the hotel trade, will ensure that your time with us will be comfortable and relaxed. Rest assured that although Ferncliff is centrally located, once inside her gates the hustle and bustle of the town is forgotten. Enjoy a game of croquet, a round of boules, or just wander around our extensive grounds which include a young rose garden and very soon, orange and pear orchards. Look no further for what promises to be a truly authentic Nuwara Eliya experience. Kindly note that, accommodation for drivers and guides are not available in the premises. ... more less
