We relaxed for a long weekend during our Sri Lanka travels at Weir House. It is up a steep private drive near the weir of a diverted canal. The property is a private house which is let out as a hotel during the tourist season. It has three large bedrooms and a huge family room lounge. The manager Lucien met...

This lovely home, hidden down a long winding road an hour outside of Kandy, in the midst of a spice plantation, offers a different type of hotel experience. There are only a few rooms and the staff, led by Lucien, wants you to feel at home. My wife and I wee only there for two nights and would have loved...

Thanks to Lucien and team for hosting us in this oasis. Driving along the road to get there we were not expecting this substantial property hiding in the woodland. Leslie the chef provides contemporary meals with Sri Lankan flavours and a big smile. We took a lovely walk along the river and only wish we'd had longer to explore. Our...

Opposite an old weir and hidden away in the woods above the river and up some quite steep steps, Weir House is a modern, comfortable hide-away. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed. The large sitting room was full of books - as well as a large TV - none of which we had time to explore. Lucien,...

This was our first stop after landing. I can't really comment on the surroundings beyond walks an hour or so in the immediate vicinity. We didn't want to leave the house and were perfectly happy de-fragging at the house before hitting the road. Its contemporary, breezy and beautifully assimilated with nature. The food was excellent and varied, and the service...

We loved it very much at "The Weir House"! The service is exceptional and the food just fantastic. Without the manager of the house we would have no train tickets to Ella. We thank you very much for your help. You are our hero! The location of the house is very idyllic and quiet and the design is very tasteful....

My sister and I stayed here with her teenage kids as part of our 4 day adventure through Sri Lanka. The staff and accomodations here were the best part of our trip. Even though it is remote the food was excellent, comparable to any great restaurant and the service was amazing. It would be a perfect place to have a...

This place is heaven on earth. The Weir House is on top a hill with a flowing river just below the property. You can hear the calming sounds of the river as you sleep which was a definite plus for me. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The manger was very knowledgable about the history of Sri Lanka and...

The images really don't do enough to capture the beauty and essence of The Weir House. What an incredible property! We traveled as a group of 11 friends and had the most amazing stay. The food was lovely and our only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer.

A beautiful residence catering to just one family at a time. The staff are so welcoming and accommodating, and the place is beautiful. It is about an hour from Kandy, so we were hesitant, but this is well worth the distance. Improvised dinner was delicious, and we had an impromptu nature walk in the morning, with great sightings.
