We booked this hotel via Ceylon Expedicey (pte) Ltd, and we stayed three nights with our friends. Highly recommended best place to stay when travelling to Bandarawela. Hotel staff is very friendly and amazing service provided throughout our stay there. From the day we checked in separate table was allocated to our nine members in dining area until last date. And all managers are visiting to restaurant and work as a team to fulfil the requirement of visitor. Every night during our stay they allocated separate area to enjoyed music, playing guitar, and singing karaoke with our team till late night. Every members of our group loved their friendly communication, service, food and hospitality.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights/3days quite recently and I really liked the place. Although it's in close proximity to the town centre, the tranquil atmosphere that prevails inside makes you wonder if you are in the hill country wilderness. The hotel is architecturally designed to have 3 floors, which blends with the terrain. The beautifully landscaped large garden, overlooking the city is in level with the 3rd floor. This is an ideal place to chill-out in the evening and the open air bar is located here. The rooms and the toilets are clean and are equipped with all common amenities. The most striking feature about this hotel is it's extremely friendly, obliging and supportive staff. Meal plans are very flexible and the food is very tasty with delectable culinary specialties. They observe the Covid 19 guidelines to the letter and the staff too are well versed with all precautionary measures. Well worth the money spent and highly recommended.

We booked the hotel for a 3-day residential photography training workshop in the form of a bio-safety bubble and the hotel manager and his staff went out of their way to accommodate all our requirements and more! We were allocated a separate area of the hotel which made everything easier, each guest had their own seat at the dining area, the temperature was checked regularly to avoid any issues, we were given access to the garden area which made our practical sessions successful and all in all, it was a tremendous week for us at the hotel!! The cuisine was excellent and the entire crew loved it! The staff and the manager's hospitality exceeded our expectations and they were exceedingly friendly and supportive. Amazing Views and location and we couldn't have asked for more! Thank you for the awesome service and I highly recommend the hotel for anyone who wants to vacay in Bandarawela and also to those looking for a stay in a bio-safety bubble!

You name it they have it! I'd like to especially praise the managing director Revatha Hettiarachchi, who like Vishu the hindu god, is always present. Overall our stay was amazing and i'd highly recommend a visit if what you're looking for is a memorable trip. As someone in the travel trade (involved in the industry for many decades) this is among the best hotels that i have visited. It is quite simple, and in it's simplicity a little goes a long way. Wish there were more hotels like this.

Although I did schooling and did my first job in Bandarawela, I never thought that the new Orient Hotel is such an amazing place until I stayed there for 3 nights recently with my wife. We could rate the staff hospitality and food at 5 star rating. I should specially mention the GM Mr. Rewatha Hettiarachchi was always talking to the guests and getting feedbacks. He himself was at the restaurant and never forget to have a chat with us in many instances. We should specially mentioned Mr. Ajith Wijesinghe and Ms. Disna for their tremendous personalized service provided to us. We have observed that all staff were equally service oriented and never hesitated to fulfill even small request made by us or the other guests. Apart from the names we mentioned ,basically all the staff provided a wonderful service even with challenging less number of staff during the COVID and Avurudu Holidays season. We never missed to visit the lovely garden of the hotel every morning for birdwatching. We were able to spot over 20 species easily with few endemics to Sri Lanka. All Bird records have been updated in ebird under Hotel Property Location. One will never believe such beautifully maintained garden exists in the middle of Bandarawela town. Room was small but clean. The view was amazing from the Room. Bandarawela Hotel is simply a Gem. Everything was perfect. We want to visit the place soon again. We wish the management and the staff all the very best and may the business flourish every day. Once again thank you very much for making our stay a memorable one.
