We stayed here for 1 night, because we wanted to walk up the Adams peak. The place was terribly dirty. maybe for a back pack holiday it's acceptabel, but if you are looking for some class and a relaxed atmosphere: don't go to this place. ;-(

This bungalow had much better views and we were able to walk around the plantation. Rooms are old and Delisious food were made with love and joy.It was well worth the stay in particular due to value for money.

Stayed here for two nights while touring around Sri Lanka. There are two bungalows about 800m apart, I stayed in the lower but you eat in the upper. The upper was built in 1906 and I would imagine that the lower is similar. As such both places have an colonial feel to them and the furniture is fitting for both...

A location to die for. However this beautiful colonial tea Planter's bungalow could be stunning if it was only upgraded, cleaned and decorated. Such a pity that the owners do not spend any money on it to make it a superb holiday accommodation.

We had a great family holiday at the Upper Glencairn bungalow. It was fullfilling in every respect but what really struck me was the outstanding service and the enthusiasm of the team at the hotel.

The property is located in a wonderful place, overlooking the castlereigh reservoir and the glimpse of Adams peak, rooms are quite old but cozy..its definitely a value for money deal, and breakfast and dinner are average. WiFi is drops very often, but the staff are very helpful and polite.
