We were here for two nights. Luckily we had the place to ourselves. The view going towards Lavender House were amazing, the tea pickers, the sunset etc. The best of all was the view from the infinity pool. AMAZING!. You could see the tea plantations in the area. The staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Ask the chef to make a traditional Sri Lankan meal with aubergine curry. The BEST I have ever had! This place is amazing for a couple, very peaceful and quiet. A good break from the hustle and travelling in Sri Lanka.

I don't really have the words to describe just how magnificent this place is. We stayed for four nights as part of our honeymoon trip through Sri Lanka, and it was all we could have hoped for and more. The estate upon which the Lavender House sits is nothing short of breathtaking - truly, unbelievably breathtaking. The rooms are beautiful. The house itself (common areas, dining room, sitting room) is absolutely wonderful, and the decor is an elegant, luxurious yet somehow contemporary nod to Sri Lanka's colonial past. While the lush beauty of the tea fields and the sumptuous decor of the house and rooms all contributed to our enjoyment of our stay, it was the IMPECCABLE service provided by Asanka and his team (Dylan, Chamika and the excellent Chef) that made our experience at the Lavender House unforgettable. Day trips to Nuwara Eliya and Kandy, high tea in the afternoon, a visit to a local tea factory - no request was too great for Asanka and his team. They made our every wish come true! Of particular note were the Chef's wonderful meals - DELICIOUS! Three course dinners in the beautiful dining room were something to behold. Our final day at the Lavender House was spent playing cricket by the infinity pool with Dylan, Chamika and Chef - a perfect end to a perfect stay. We didn't want to leave, but we'll definitely be back!

We only stayed one night, which was certainly not enough. I could have spent an entire week there, just enjoying the lovely rooms, the great view from the terrace and the relaxing setting with view from the pool. The food and service was impeccable too. Only point is that I would have loved to have a glass of wine but do understand that they only offer bottles.

Certainly a hotel (well, they have 6 rooms) not to miss when visiting this area and get a feeling of the lovely region and tea plantation.

We will be back!

If you go to Sri Lanka you must spend a weekend at the Lavender House. Built around 1890 in the middle of the tea plantations. Once owned by an British tea planter and restored to its original state. The original brick wall where the plantation family marked the childrens growth with height and dates, is quite amazing.
The menu available was fantastic and equaled any five star restaurant, afternoon high tea being my particular favourte.
The staff were particularly good at making you feel like a king, attention to detail was fantastic. Each room is beautifully furnished with extremly comfortable beds and unique bathroom.
Make the journey, you will not regret it.
P.S. chech out the wine cellar.

Stayed 2 nites at Lavender House, definitely worth the splurge; however, at the price, the owners could have at least graded the road if not actually paved it! the ride thru the tea plantation to arrive at the B&B was nightmarish-especially since it was at nite and the pot holes were huge. staff was very friendly, very professional, food was great, views were wonderful, enjoyed the pool and breakfast outside,limited menur, understandably since the road to the plantation would have been a very long one to bring in foodstuffs but the actual food was cooked to perfection and there was a choice between Western and local menus. I felt for a few days like I was living the good life as it would have been done 100 years ago. would definitely go back in a heart beat; if I could figure out a way to live there permanently, I'd be packed tomorrow. Would highly recommend it
