Disappointment”
We stayed in this location because the hotel we originally booked through Agoda was sold out. Needless to say it a great disappointment. First, the hotel was difficult to locate and when we did find it, we were told by the caretakers that we could not drive up the 1km driveway but had to walk up the mountain road carrying our luggage because the road was not in good condition. Our driver insisted anyway and they reluctantly agreed, and indeed the road was in terrible condition! There were only two apartments in the house. The downstairs apartment had a bathroom separated from the outdoors only by a wall on one side and big openings with metal bars on the two other walls, so when using the bathroom there was no privacy from people eating at the picnic table or enjoying the pool deck. The pool was filled with cloudy water that was freezing cold so we could not enjoy it. The only way to get air into the apartment was by opening the sliding glass doors, but then all the bugs came into the room and the bed had no mosquito net. We therefore had to suffer mosquitoes buzzing around our heads all night long. There was no proper accommodation for our driver, who had to stay in an ancient mud hut with no proper windows or door and only outdoor bath facilities. There was no mosquito net provided so he suffered bug bites all night long. There was no mattress on the bed so they had to use some makeshift blankets and cushions to help him sleep somewhat comfortably. While of course the location is peaceful and beautiful, the amount of money we paid per night for this "hotel" was way too much, so we asked for a refund from Agoda, who only partially compensated us. The minimum standards we expected to get in this "hotel" unfortunately were not met so I would not recommend it to others.

Peaceful!”
Location, the view, the food & the fact that it was completely out of the way and remote.
I and my wife were there for 2 nights on out honeymoon and loved the place! The location and the view was breathtaking! Only negative fact was that the air-con was not working due to some power problem. However, since its not that warm and very windy we did not feel it too much. It is a bit out of the way and the road to the location is broken which also adds to the adventure. Therefore, would recommend to have your own vehicle and not go out once you are there. There is also a beautiful stream flowing below which is a short walk down through the tea bushes. The care-taker Gamini went out of the way to keep us happy and the food was great! Overall it was good. However, feel that it is a bit over priced and would not recommend to stay more than 2 nights since you can not really travel around due to the bad road.

Highlight of our trip”
Great design, secluded, romantic
This was one of the highlights of our trip. The villa is difficult to get to (about 30 minutes drive from the city of Haputale or about 1.5 hours drive from Ella), but was definitely worth the trip. The property is beautiful and you are in a world of your own. Gamani, who was managing the property, was absolutely wonderful and took great care of us. We had dinner and breakfast in the room. Expect bugs as you're living in the middle of the mountains. Also, the pool could use with a cleaning which we have given feedback to the manager. No internet but I suppose that is the whole point of living in the mountains. Highly recommended.

To avoid. Well overpriced”
Good for the architecture and the view, but rundown.
This is way overpriced. The place is a nice architecture but it is quite rundown with mold and would need a good refresh to be up to the standards for the price they ask. Even the bed sheets were not freshly changed... This is really far remote from Haputale, and not easy to find without a sign board on the main road. There is no internet.

Promised so much but did not deliver!”
Fantastic view, rooms were lovely and staff charming.
Impossible to find without Google map and iPad! No sign from main road, no sign at top of drive, no sign on premises to say it is the Romance Valley. It is more a private villa than a hotel. It did not have a spa, restaurant was a dark earth 'hut' hidden amongst trees, very dark, no view, very very basic and not in a chic way! In complete contrast to the very modern villa itself. Very limited menu, more a set meal. Soft drinks and beer only, no wine. No TV connection, very limited selection of DVDs and one room TV was faulty. The young man who looked after us was delightful though. Very very expensive for what you get.
