We stayed at Norwood bungalow for 2 nights.
The journey from Galle to Hatton was long and at times bumpy, but worth every minute of it to stay at Norwood in its breath taking setting in the stunning Sri Lankan hill country.
Service is impeccable
Food both western and Sri Lankan is excellent. The best we found in Sri Lanka!
Afternoon tea on the veranda was a highlight
Incredibly relaxing atmosphere with little touches like a croquet lawn and billiard room add traditional character to the bungalow
The bedroom was well furnished in a traditional style and comfortable, the room was slightly let down by the erratic plumbing in the bathroom
Lovely large swimming pool
I will remember eating the delicious breakfast on the terrace with the wonderful views across the hills for a very long time.
Another highlight is to take a walk in the hills (bring walking trainers) around the tea plantations and watch the women hard at work plucking the tea. Everyone you meet is so friendly and welcoming to visitors.
