This is such a gorgeous place. You can feel the British legacy with large rooms, luxuriously decked out. Beautiful view of the lake and mountains from the main living area. The food was amazing, especially the Sri Lankan curries and high tea at 4 pm...More

Dear Onno, thank you very much for your feedback on Tientsin bungalow. The bungalow team would be delighted to read your comments. We like to think of Tea Trails not as a hotel but a unique experience! Glad that you felt utterly pampered, warm wishes...More

Tea Trails overall offers comfy colonial charm with its full board residential experience but they are almost victims of their own success especially as many guests only stay a night or two and move on, so there is an obvious well worn processing routine with...More

Hi Roshea, my apologies that Castlereagh slipped in this instance - we have dived in to address the points raised; a through audit is being done. Our usual stay is 2-3 days and by no means are guests "processed"! We will never become complacent so...More

We’re planning to go to Ceylon for a portion of our honeymoon (in May 2019) and will be booking through a travel agent as it’s part of a larger trip. The travel agent has told us that we can’t book a specific bungalow, and can only give our preference but we’ll only find out if we’ve got it a couple of weeks before the holiday. Has anyone been told the same thing by a travel agent? We’re not sure what to make of it as it seems you can select the bungalow if you book direct through the Ceylon website, and it’s an expensive part of the trip not to be able to choose. If anyone has found the same, did you manage to get the bungalow you requested or did you get put in a different one? We’re thinking Dunkeld as our main preference and then Castlereagh as second - anyone have any other recommendations? We’d particularly like good views of the lake. Thanks in advance!
