Everything was good!! The staff even permitted to checkin two hours early and were very cooperative. Only problem is that the approach road to the Hotel situated on small hill is not in good condition and needed skilful driving.

We had spent 2 wonderful nights in there. It is a small boutique hotel 30 km from N Eliya and yet it provides great view of tea plantation, mountains, sunset, rivers down...

Great view BUT disapointed by facilities”
The place and view are amazing ! However, the food is not good, the breakfast is suppose to be included but in reality they do not serve fruit witjout paying extra. Moreover, we were very astonished when they asked to pay to play the pool table !! Not a good feeling!

Perfect setting and breathtaking views!”
This place is lovely. The views of the tea estate, the lake in the distance and the mountains is simply fascinating. The rooms are nice (a tad small with no closet space). The food is good but a bit expensive (no other option to eat elsewhere). The breakfast is good and Neil is helpful and courteous. I left my camera behind and he was kind enough to bring it down the hill. The Glenloch tea estate is nice and you can buy tea there. Worth the visit!

Back off.”
I don't know what I liked more, the intrusive questions about the nature of my (gay, married) relationship, being charged a lot for ill prepared food and being offered dessert (informally, as recompense?) at the end of the meal) and then being charged for it, or the constant, repetitive insistence that I leave a review on Agoda and leave a comment in their guestbook as the proprietor hovered over me, watching. The view was nice and the place was clean. The rest of it sucked real hard and felt creepy.

Its way out of town but you won't miss NE when you get to the villa!”
First, your heart sinks as you realise that the Villa Glenloch is nearly 30 kms out of Nuwara Eliya town - almost an hour's drive. Then it'll sink further when you realise that the Villa Glenloch is perched high on top of a hill, away from the highway and lesser drivers will give you a scare trying to negotiate the climb. But, when you get off the vehicle and step into the Villa, all is forgiven and forgotten. You have to yourself the most fantastic view of the lakes you never expected and a most welcoming staff. Neil, who manages the guests at the Villa, is the politest man I've met on this holiday and will take care of your slightest requests. The Villa Glenloch is a perfect place to settle down with a book and a drink for a couple of nights.

It's very high location on the mountain with great view. Hosts are friendly and helpful. However, it's a little bit hard to reach the hotel because of the road.

Great view. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. Comfortable rooms. ”
We had a great staying 3 nights in this hotel. Rooms are made with good style, fresh, very clean and comfortable, facing towards down side of the mountain. Squirrels and birds outside the window. Location is great for people who want to escape crowds and enjoy nature and quietness exploring surroundings - hiking, waterfall, tea plantations, tea factory and so on. The food was amazing, western as well as Sri Lankan. The staff was super friendly and helpful with everything we asked and everything they offered themselves. Suggestions for the improvements - having baby high chair and bigger bottles of water in rooms. Although those things were resolved in other ways.

Actually, its just the view...”
Located way off Nuwara Elia (40 minutes on a fast motorcycle, I'm guessing a full hour on a cab so add 2 hours if you're planning to visit Horton Plains) its nicely nestled amidst tea gardens overlooking rolling hills and the 'loch' as they seem to prefer calling it. The room I got (Rose) had exposed electric wires 2 inches from the bathroom mirror light switch, a faulty shower head that hung lower than my head, bed lights that were wired to some switch in the kitchen upstairs (and turned off when the cooks wound up for the day), a TV that required a diploma to operate and a really noisy roof (the kitchen being directly above). Internet (again required a guided tour to connect) was touch and go and building up to the finale, the food at dinner was AWFUL (nothing exotic ordered - just SriLankan rice and curry!) I can further corroborate what an earlier reviewer mentioned. Loudspeakers blaring religious gospel go off at 5 am sharp and keep you up for a good half hour at least. Some minutes later, the kitchen comes alive... Buy hey, the view is excellent. All 30 minutes of the late afternoon I sat gazing at the gorge... Next time, I'll be staying in downtown Nuwara Eliya and not paying for this 'faux colonial experience' without drinking water in your room (they do have a dispenser in the dining area upstairs though)...

Less than expected”
We enjoyed the weather at the Tea gardens and the staf have tried to make the visit more enjoyable. However, there are some issues were not comfortable; the access road is rough, the hotel is next to a bouda worship which makes loud sound very early morning, no closet for your clothes, found small indicts inside the bed cover at one room, breakfast was too simple (eggs, toast, etc) same every day.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds big and comfortable. The views as the rains came gorgeous.
We stayed for two nights and had a lovely stay. We had the home to ourselves so we were able to take advantage on the gorgeous gardens and living room that had amazing views. A traditional Sri Lankan meal was cooked for us and our host accompanied us on a tour of the local area. All in all a marvellous couple of days.

Good manager but 1 hour drive from Nuwara Eliya”
The view, the staff
We chose the Vila Glenloch with romantic ideas that we'd be in an old tea bungalow. It's actually a new build, and more south east Asian chintz than old colonial charm. However it was very clean, rooms were good size and comfortable and the view was stunning. Neil the manager was always helpful and attentive. However be warned that the vilas website makes out its closer to Nuwara than it is. It's 35km which takes a good hour on the winding roads ... The hotel quoted us £40 just to get there and back (we took the bus for just £1 but took quite a bit longer). You are also on the wrong side for Hortons plain which is almost 2 hours away. The hotel could do with improving its food which was poor compared to other places in terms of quality and price. They could also do with expanding their network of taxi drivers as the one we had was rude, spoke no English and picked up his friend who needed a ride to Columbo. The extra bed we ordered for our son was increadiby uncomfortable (although the regular beds were great) and I was very disappointed that they refused to refund us for this (£67) even though we highlighted this immediately. Finally for some unknown reason the towels are to small to wrap round ones whole body(!)
