This was a nice hotel to visit as it was actually a converted tea factory and has kept some of the machinery which is runs for half an hour each evening as a feature.
The hotel also has it's own working tea factory on the grounds and if you pop in the friendly staff there are happy to give you a 15 minute tour which was really fascinating. The tea that it produces is used in the hotel and sold to guest in the hotel shop.
The hotel is situated a long was our of the town and up a long, winding dirt track so you are pretty much limited to eating and drinking there.
The restaurant was average at best with poor service,luke warm food and fairly poor choice for both breakfast and dinner but there was nowhere else to eat.
The room was a standard room and was one of the smallest that we had in Sri Lanka, thin walls mean you could hear your neighbours and even the people across the hall.
The rooms was clean but the step up into the bath ( using a wooden step glued to the floor ) was pretty harrowing and I would imagine could be very difficult for older people or those who had mobility problems.
One of the pillows in our room was very dirty on arrival and we had to ask 4 times before it was replaced.
The location of the hotel is simply stunning. It's on a hill with amazing view of the local town, mountains and tea plantations.
Not our favourite hotel in Sri Lanka but if you are in the area it is worth a visit to experience a quirky and unusual hotel.
