We stayed at the Mandira Craig Appin Bungalow for a couple of days R&R after I climbed Adam's Peak. It is the most expensive place we've stayed in Sri Lanka and was of a high standard. The service was first class, especially from Chandra who looked after everything and always had a smile on his face. We had a couple...

Where do I begin? I arrived after quite a drive. It was starting to drizzle and the place was a bit secluded, so I was a bit worried, considering I had already paid last night. We drove past these large wooden gate doors and up a sweeping driveway. A gentleman greeted me, smiled, and brought me a hot cup of...

We were in Sri Lanka for 7 days and stayed at 3 hotels. Out of all the hotels Mandira Bungalows was my favourite experience. I absolutely loved the decor of the bungalow and the feeling of staying in a home rather that a big hotel. We had two rooms that were directly across from each other. Each room came with...

We sourced the Mandira Dickoya bungalow though Agoda- but more about this later. The bungalows are a blast from the past - beautifully furnished and presented and straight out of Downton abbey. We had the place to ourselves for the night and it was a fantastic place to recover from Adams Peak. Food was excellent and the staff were attentive...

We stayed at two different bungalows in two nights due to availability. Mandira Dick Oya Bungalow was our first night, we had an large two bedroom suite, despite there only being two of us. The decor looks as though it is still from the British colonial days but that is part of the charm. The staff were very attentive and...

Probably not refurbished since the 50's this place is comfortable but dull and the owners prefer to switch off 2/3 of the lights to save a few penny rather than create some sort of atmosphere... Also, we got trapped with a $50/person (more than 5 times the average dinner price in Sri Lanka) Newyear's eve dinner which turned out to...

We stayed in many hotels throughout Sri Lanka during our visit but this hotel has by far served the BEST food (dinner experience) that I have ever had the pleasure of eating served in a great dinning room.

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
