Staying at Tea Trails is like going back in time to say the 1960's when the pace of life was much slower and mobile phones didn't exist. Don't worry the bungalow's do have wifi. We stayed in the Norwood bungalow. It is set in beautiful grounds with amazing views of the surrounding hills and countryside. Including the tea plantations themselves.
There is an old fashion feel about the place. The decor of the bedrooms, lounge areas and the dinning room is somewhat dated. This is not a criticism although some guests may expect more modern facilities. But this feel is quintessentially what is strived for at the hotel.
The food presented is of a high standard. But a little note of caution. As an all-inclusive establishment a three course lunch is served, a superb afternoon tea and a four course evening meal in addition to your cooked breakfast. Pace and some application is required to combat overconsumption. Having pre and post dinner drinks in the lounges with log fires burning was a delight.
As you would imagine staff are ultra professional, courteous and friendly.
If you are a lover of luxury, of being pampered and wishing to return to a bygone age that you were fond of, this is the place to stay.
