What a great inclusion into our trip. Felt like we were in an old hotel somewhere in the highlands of the UK. A sort of Fawlty Towers where everything ran smoothly. It seemed like there were a few places like this in Nuwara Eliya with the same feel. We didn't get to check out any others.
We were fortunate to be here on NYE and wow what a buffet. Have never had such good suckling pig and BBQ leg of lamb. Was a perfect place to spend a few nights and certainly something out of the ordinary. Would highly recommend it for a couple of nights.
The next part of this is a message to management.
Whomever recommended you convert part of the lovely bar area to a 'graffiti bar' is still dining out on this story and getting massive laughs from it. I cannot recall something so bizarre. You may wish to observe the look on people's faces when (after not being able to get a seat in the main lovely, charming delightful bar) they first go in to try and find somewhere to sit. It seems they almost all retreat double time to go to the other sitting area with the fire (which is also delightful). If it is all part of a Sri Lankan Candid Camera prank - well I guess you got me. Otherwise I highly recommend you preserve and honour the history of the hotel and revert it back to a lovely old bar.
