Beautiful rooms overlooking amazing gardens and grounds in a beautifully restored house.the siiting rooms were great and the enormous snooker table was well utilized. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food was great. The house is located in a lovely rural setting perfect for relaxing with activities on offer like tennis croquet and badmitton. The pool is in need of updating but is adequate wiill lovely views .Overall a fantastic place to relax in a beautiful setting with great staff and food.

This is a superb boutique hotel with great rooms, delicious food, excellent service and beautiful, quiet surroundings. Our stay could not have been better. From the moment we saw the gardens and walked in we knew that this was quite different from all the other places we stayed in in Sri Lanka. Every detail is just right in this very spacious grand country house,which is kept to a very high standard. Decoration is tasteful but not staid, everything is in very good condition and the staff are very attentive without being in any way overwhelming - just the right balance to make you feel as if the place is yours. We stayed 4 days, but I would have preferred to stay for 4 months.

Unique, exceptional property situated amongst tea plantations. This is the old house of James Taylor, the father of tea-growing in Sri Lanka. The owners have really succeeded in keeping some of the old, colonial charm and blending it with a more modern approach. You almost feel like you are part of a Poirot episode, playing croquet and sipping afternoon tea in the garden. Everything, the rooms, the beautiful garden, the pool, the tennis field, as well as the staff, is great. Also, the food is really good, and you even have the opportunity to participate in a Sri Lankan cooking class! The service is exceptional, and you always feel very welcome. Nothing is a problem. Highly recommended!!!

Don't expect an easy drive to this wonderful hotel. It is hidden between tea plantations and can be reached after an exciting 75 minutes ride from Kandy. However, on your way you will see nice little villages, local communities outside crowded tourist areas and you will get a sense of the real life in Sri Lanka. The hotel is a gem. We had a beautifully decorated suite with a nice view. The restaurant and lounge areas are charming. The quality of service was personal, authentic and absolutely perfect. We felt like being in our own home from the beginning. We were surprised about the excellent quality of the food, something you do not expect in such a remote location. We highly recommend to visit the tea factory and tea plantations close to the hotel. If you need a rest from your visit to the cultural triangle, choose this place. You can completely relax for a few days and continue your tour re-energized.
