The rooms were spacious and the staff all friendly However, there were plenty of issues. On arrival we were only greeted by two young staff who tried hard but spoke very limited English. We had plenty of questions but these went... More

Beautiful location, great view, relaxed and truly dedicated staff. Ramakrishna, the chef, provided the best food we had in the country. The staff was quick to accommodate any request. Large comfortable room.

There is a lovely old colonial/English feel on arrival to this hotel/bungalow. All rooms are inside at this Bungalow and there are about 5 in total. The Surrounding views in Hatton are beautiful. Lots of tea plantations etc but none you can actually visit and tour without the hotel...ill come onto that further down. But it was a total waste... More

Area surrounding Hatton is beautiful. However, we had bad experience trying to view the tea plantations and we felt very badly let down by the General Manager of the Hotel. Our driver took us to the Norwood estate, which is the local tea estate, so that we could tour and view the plantation and factory. However, apparently the tea factories... More

What an amazing bungalow. Great staff, great food and a spectacular setting. Would recommend to anyone who needs a few days out of their busy life to just chill and relax. We stayed at the Craig Appin Bungalow as it was named after our family but it looks like all the bungalows are pretty special.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As our name suggests our bungalows are of either architectural or historical interest, all offering much of the atmosphere of Sri Lanka’s glorious past. Experience a style of gracious living and soothing relaxation sometimes so scarce in the modern, time pressured ‘civilised’ world. Each bungalow is a haven of peace and tranquility in some wonderfully quiet corners of Sri Lanka. Each is a place where service is founded on instinctive hospitality, where the food is pure delight - and where quality and attention to detail keeps us awake with the desire to serve. ... more   less
