We stayed at the Ferncliff during our recent trip to SL, it took us close to a 6 hour drive to get there from Colombo, but boy was it worth it !!!, Nuwaraeliya by itself is one of those rare hill towns in south asia that still remain failry pristene n unexploited by ramphent commercialisation.
Ferncliff is right in the middle of this little town but still ends up feeling like natures little private pocket.
The bunglow is feels like it is from a differnt world, it def has been around for a long time but it is very well maintained n has every aminity a modern day traveller would look for. The rooms are large n spacious, t, Almost every room has its own fire place. The gardens around the property are brilliant.
Overall it is a fantstic location, great property, excellent hospitality, the food is not exceptional but its certainly not bad. Ferncliff can be the ideal get away for everyone, be it family, friends or couples. Certainly worth your time n money.
- 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
