Just stayed one night; beautiful and serene environment.. perfect for relaxing and unwinding. The staff were really attentive and the Srilankan hospitality shows it's power again. Bed could have been a little bit cleaner and found the bathrooms were not up to the cleanly standard I expect but nice and cosy rooms with plenty of natural day light, Loved the...

This hotel is located in a very peaceful area in the middle of a Tea Estate. We stayed there for two nights in late Jan 2017. We stayed in one of the cottages of this hotel. Cottages are clean and well furnished. Staff is excellent, polite and cooperative. This is recommended if one wants a quiet vacation.

...but quit a ride to get there. Once arrived it is a wonderful setting in the middle of nowhere. Food is great although not many choice. Houses: perfect with nice bathrooms. As it is up hills you hardly need the AC which makes the night quite and easy. From dusk till dawn only animal noise.

The hotel is located at a very scenic location. Beautiful place with a very polite and flexible staff. The rooms, both the Govenor's suite and the cottages are well maintained and beautiful. Its location is probably the only minus point (and the depth of the pool, me being on the shorter side). The staff took the trouble to arrange a...

Amazing place in old colonial villa. Big clean cottages, beautiful setting in garden with spices, herbs and fruits. The young energetic manager were kind to take us on a two hour walk among farms og rice paddys, tasting spices and seeing kingfisher birds, turtles and lizards. Nice pool and beautiful view over the tea valley. In the morning just birds...

This hotel has a polite staff who try to accomodate you the best way possible. Our room was beautiful, however the bathroom had a really bad smell - we ended up using incense sticks to cover the smell.. This was in governor's suite. Also, it is a bit of a driving distance to Kandy, however the location was beautiful..
