Reviewed 25 July 2017

Had a fantastic three night stay in this hotel, it is in a beautiful setting with great views. Spacious rooms with good working air con and wifi. The staff are very helpful and helped arrange our tuk tuks into Kandy, which is only about 25 minutes away. The breakfast is amazing with so much variety including pancakes, roti, curry and fruit. Dinner is also very nice although a bit more expensive than other hotels. The pool area is great with very nice views. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel was quite up in the hills outside of Kandy, but the views from our window were so worth it. The staff here were very welcoming and had a room included in our rate for our hired driver, which was very convenient. The bed was comfortable, and the room was nice. We had a lovely breakfast on the terrace in the morning, and would definitely stay here again if traveling in Sri Lanka.

We stayed in this hotel for four nights, and were amazed at its location, as was just 20 mins from the hectic city of Kandy. It felt extremely rural and like a retreat. Although the food was a little more expensive than anticipated, and there were limited other options available, it was constantly delicious and the staff came to our every need. The cooler pool (a nice contrast to the warmer atmosphere) had a beautiful view and was clean and lovely to swim in.
Would recommend this hotel for those looking for a relaxing escape.

We only stayed for one night before catching the train to Ella. The staff were so helpful and welcoming and kind. I would definitely recommend staying here. It is a little far out of Kandy but we stayed here for dinner and breakfast and a respite from the heat and noise. The breakfast is amazing and they even packed some sandwiches for our train trip. The pool and garden great also. Thanks so much for having us

A truly memorable hotel.The hotel has gorgeous views from both the rooms and the pool. As the hotel has only 6 rooms it is intimate and has the feel of staying with family. The restaurant serves great food, especially curries with all the side dishes. - you can dine inside or on the terrace.
Udaya, the manager, is a fantastic host. He organised transport for us and recommended a traditional dance show that was very enjoyable..
It was my husband's birthday and Udaya surprised him at breakfast with a table on the terrace decorated with balloons, flowers and a chocolate cake complete with candle & song.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Gorgeous hotel. The staff were lovely, the food delicious and the views fabulous. The room and bathroom was perfect. A truly wonderful little haven away from the bustling streets and not too far from Kandy.

Everything about this lovely hotel is fabulous - the setting, the facilities, the views, the food. Best of all the staff are so welcoming and friendly. They even did me a surprise birthday cake which was so nice and they had also decorated the table with fresh flowers and party hats. The gardens are beautiful with great bird life and a fabulous swimming pool. The rooms on one side of the hotel get views of the sunset, and on the other the sunrise. There are also balconies on each side to just while away the hours whilst admiring the stunning views. It's situated about a 20 minute drive from Kandy which was perfect for us. We stayed for two nights as a group of five people and it was our favourite hotel of our Sri Lanka trip - it just had an intimacy and warmth to it that we really loved. We would really recommend it.
