Peace, colonial bungalow, high up in the mountains

The stunning views over tea plantations, rice paddies and of the Knuckles Ranges; the forest and wildlife; the beautiful old house
10
Superb. So quiet after the bustle and noise of Kandy. A special place, worthy of its conservation status. Exploring the hills around and seeing the remains of coffee, pine, cardamom and tea plantations was fascinating, as was the village walk across rise paddies and past huts with carefully kept yards and vegetable gardens. You can come here and do nothing, or do lots. Beautiful food, wonderful service, great books on the fauna and flora, and the staff know how to take care of their guests. A very special place indeed.

The location of this hotel is amazing. However, I was disappointed by the interiors. It is described as luxurious but it isn't. I thought the interiors were spartan (could use some art on the walls, etc) and more furnishings. Overall, I thought the hotel delivered just below what it promised. I understand that it is situated in a nature resort but that is not an excuse for not treating the guests to a better ambience. The staff were great - efficent and helpful.

The stay was disrupted by other guests playing mu

the stafff, the food and the manager were excellent

We cut our stay short and demanded to leave as three other families took over the guest house and played guitars and sang until 2.00 am making the stay not very enjoyable and impossible to enjoy and stay any longer with the manager agreeing, to his credit he did sort a refund and booked another hotel for us

remote mountain lodge

the location of this colonial era bungalow is superb. the views are incredible. the food is delicious.
7.7
you come here if you want to walk in the knuckles mountains which rise up out of paddy fields and small villages. you passrushing rivers, majestic trees, windswept mountain tops with flowering bushes. the walks are strenuous but perfectly manageable for an urbanite. the bungalow is run like a colonial country house. it is not high luxury but it is comfortable enough and the food is delicious. tell them in advance if you want sri lankan or western food. the staff are very helpful and friendly.

schöne, grosse Zimmer, etwas dunkles Badeszimmer

Umgebautes früheres Teehaus

Wer Natur, Ruhe und die Abgelegenheit mit wunderschöner Aussicht geniessen will, ist hier genau richtig. Das komplette Essen war bei unserer Buchung inbegriffen. Obschon bei der Buchung nur auf ein Frühstück inklusive erwähnt wurde. Das Essen war sehr, sehr lecker und ausgewogen. Das Wandern in der Gegend ist nur mit einem Führer zu unternehmen, ausser man läuft der kleinen Bergstrasse entlang. Nach dem Nachtessen wurden die Türen und der Service geschlossen, wer ein Bier oder sonst noch etwas haben will, sollte dies nacht dem Essen gleich bekunden.

5月31日入住的但是回来工作忙现在才评价,酒店位于knuckle range山上,是栋独立的小别墅,听酒店老板讲好像是荷兰人以前建的别墅,蛮有历史的,站在酒店花园里就可以看到连绵的山峰和美丽的山景,服务人员超级细心,每个小细节都注重到了,下午为我们准备了茶点,晚上还为我们准备了烛光晚餐。房间也很有特点,两层房间上面是睡觉的,下面是卫生间,卫生间是大石头做的墙,很凉快。酒店因为是小别墅,房间不多,可以很安静的享受酒店的服务和风景,在这里不但住的舒适而且是唯一一家可以看到这么美的山景的酒店。
