                Tranquil stay in a traditional colonial property”

                Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Ferncliff Bungalow. Check in was efficient, and we appreciated the delicious tea that we were offered during the check in. We were glad to get assistance with train pickup, as well as a contact to arrange our trip to Horton Plains national park. The rooms were spacious, and clean, and we loved the big shower. The property is large, and tranquil, with a lot of room to sit down and enjoy the nature. Also, we really enjoyed our dinner at the hotel, including the delicious rhubarb crumble. The hotel is conveniently located, just a short walk to the city center. All in all, great stay, and we hope we can come back.

                Rich stay in the heart of central hill country”

                We got a welcome with hot chocolate with marshmallow while chef was explaining the bangalow of governer Sir Edward Barnes, the ferncliff, which was a lovely place for a romantic stay for a couple of days in Nuwaraeliya. The stay was brilliant with the warm (heater did that), clean room with the picturesque garden view. Food was delicious, and service was amazingly superb. Ring the bell of the gate of the bangalow, if you are going to have a rich stay in the heart of hill country of Sri Lanka.

                It is a cozy 19th century bungalow, rooms are warm and cozy, the staffs are friendly and made sure we were comfortable. They even place hot water bags to warm our beds at night. 1 day is too short to enjoy what this house has to offer. Will definitely come back to stay longer!

                It's a gorgeous colonial style home that invites you to take your time to explore its antique furnished rooms, lovely gardens, vegetable patch. We loved the hot water bottle the staff thoughtfully provided to keep our beds warm. The bathrooms were renovated recently so it was all modern and clean. There was welcome tea & biscuits served, and we felt refreshed checking in. Breakfast was served in a quaint dining parlour. service from Bernard and his team was top notch! 1 minor issue was that when it got drafty, the windows would rattle at night - which comes from its vintage I guess. But all in all, superb location, and if you want a stay that goes beyond run of the mill hotels Ferncliff is a definite winner!

                It’s a charming boutique hotel with a colonial home decoration. The room is very nice however the bed quality is average and no sound proof. We were traveling with young kids and since it’s a small hotel, we got complained by one of the guests due to the noise that kids did. However, the manager was very nice and kind in the other hand, he didn’t mind the noise. Thank you for your hospitality.

                This charming colonial homestead on a quieter edge of town offers 6 spacious (although not always soundproof) rooms, a delightful dining area and a beautiful and restful garden. The team led by Bernard are most professional. Chef was very flexible arranging gluten free meals on request and the produce from the home garden was amazing! Due to the elevation of Nuwara Eliya, evenings and mornings were cool and staff lit a fire in the dining room and provided hot water bottles for the bed! Column heaters were an added touch in each room. We found it very convenient as well as enjoyable to eat all our meals in-house.

                We chose the Fernclffe expecting a character property which it is. But it fails to take advantage of its setting. The management needs a good shake up to get the best out of the property. Everything is mediocre. We expected to sit on the lawn on comfortable seats with a drink admiring the view, but there is no decent garden furniture. Breakfast was exceptionally mediocre.

                We stayed in Nuwara Eliya over my birthday so decided to treat ourselves to one of the higher end hotels. Chose the Ferncliff on the strength of their reviews and it certainly lived up to them! The bungalow is beautiful and incredibly authentic, although the English feel was a little surprising. The staff were great, particularly Chef Dinesh who was far more than a Chef, greeting us each day, talking us through the history of the building and helping out with any queries. The food was amazing, particularly the afternoon tea. Only slight disappointment was the taxi driver arranged by the hotel to drop us back at the station really ripped us off which left a bit of a sour taste. Other than that it was perfect.

                Great Service. Heritage Site

                Ferncliff was just great. We stayed there for two nights, and we were so well looked after and spoiled even. The roaring log fire as you enter, coupled with the warm rooms and believe it or not, hot water bottles!!! at night ensured that we were kept warm and toasty on what was a blustery rainy night outside. The food was fantastic. Their Sri Lankan, cooked by Michael, the manager's wife, was the best we've had on our stay in Sri Lanka so far. Everything tasted fresh and crisp and yummy. What we enjoyed most however was the comfortable rooms. The beds were just so comfy. We sank into them at the end of the day and didn't open our eyes until well into the next morning, to be greeted by a sumptuous breakfast of bacon and eggs, nice fat sausages, fresh juice, and freshly baked bread. These guys are obviously getting it right, and we really recommend this place, which is a heritage site in Nuwara Eliya, i.e. one of the first bungalows ever built here apparently, and this place was great for a couple like us, but obviously also very family friendly.
