I am saddened, if not amazed by the critical reviews this brilliant place attracts - so I'll just keep to the facts: 1) The gardens & view are absolutely stunning. 2) The whole complex is seriously undermanned and the staff do struggle despite trying really hard. 3) The estate is a fair old drive from Haputale which is hardly Las...

It started when we arrived to the beautiful grounds. We had to leave our van and walk around the whole place to find someone to show us to our room. The room they showed us was not the room we booked on booking.com and insisted that the room as described and photographed did not exist. For the price of this...

Just like the famous book, this wonderful establishment provides colonial charm and elegance in droves. We were given the front bedroom of the main building which has a 4 poster bed and a huge bathroom. The gardens are a delight and facing south meant we were lucky enough to have sun all day. The property is some way out from...

Our stay is better summarized as Comedy of Errors. On arrival our guide had to call multiple times before someone came to open the gate. We then found out the manager had gone on vacation (we arrived on New Year's Day), leaving behind three staff members who speak no English and in spite of the fact that you can tell...

You could not ask for a more beautiful place to stay in the Hupatale area. An exquisitely furnished home offering comfort and inspiration. The views from the well tended gardens, the attention of the kind staff, the quality of the food are all far greater than any other 'hotel's provide - the sense of being individually appreciated guests made our...

The house is very nice, old colonial house, nicely decorated, great feel to it and amazing view. In th middle of nowhere was not easy to find, you can get to town either by bus or tuktuk and its a 20 minute ride, but an amazing escape if you want to relax for a few days, maybe the most beautiful...

Place is absolutely stunning with beautiful panoramic view. Ares to improve - bathrooms- huge and nicely refurbished but some taps/hot water not working properly in couple of rooms - staff - no one from the banglow is there to assist the guest from 9.30PM onward. This needs to changed. Also staff members are supportive but we need always to tell...

This bungalow is old but they are keeping while property very tidy and neat! The staff is very friendly and efficient. However it seems to be the owner of the property is just making money without doing a justice to the staff and to the property. There are no locks in some rooms from the inside. There should be locks...

This place is a beautiful colonial building with excellent views. We stayed in room # 1 and the room itself was spacious and had a big desk, good poster bed and a wardrobe. The bathroom was also huge, but was lacking half the lights, and there was no hand towel (only large bath towels) or any place where to put...
