We absolutely loved this place and stayed for 2 nights. The owner & staff were really helpful. For our second night we stayed in room 1 which had a massive comfy bed. Food was brilliant & the Sri Lankan curry was delicious. Also the beer was nice & cold! Would definitely recommend!

We couldn't have been welcomed any better! The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The room is clean, good value for money and 'bohème'. Just one word of advice, If you come and visit the king fern cottage, please take the walking tour with Gihan to see the tea plantations. It takes around 6 hours and it is absolutely amazing....

King Fern Cottage - Funkiest Place i've been to in Sri Lanka. The location excels in creating such a great vibe. Location is great - Just a few minutes away from the city center. Doable by walk. The hotel also offers a pick up service from the train station. Rooms are nice. They are comfortable, spacious and have good facilities....

Great place, beautiful cottage, clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I felt like at home. Also the food is amazing and the price is reasonable. If I go back to that city I'm starting there again.

We splurged for the bigger room and were rewarded with a lovely balcony and a great sleep, warm blankets (needed in Dec) and a great shower! The restaurant has a fireplace which lends a very cosy atmosphere to the place, and on both nights guests hung back and just chatted. The staff is very attentive and the breakfast packets were...

This lovely guesthouse has a very open, glass and wooden dining/common area with a fire place. It looks out over the golf course and is absolutely lovely. The food was good, staff very helpful. The owner was around but had no interaction with guests (busy entertaining friends?). We took a room upstairs, which was large and clean. The bed was...

Interesting vibe as soon as we arrived. Nice surrounding overlooking the golfcourse, we were booked into the room underneath the main dining area, the one with a stream running beneath it. As we were to discover, the damp seeps through the walls, and that room hangs heavy with damp. Questionable bed linen, unswept floor, we overlooked these things for the...

King Fern is an extremely cosy and comfortable place in the chilly hills. Main things are the vibe and the great staff, as well as the food - Do yourselves a favour and check out King Fern! Lisa and Keith

This place is awesome. We stayed an extra night because it's so good, particularly the king size bed with the pleasant stream water noise in the background. If you are a chicken curry fan, you owe it to yourself to stay here. Best I've ever had. Very helpful staff who will get you where you want to go.
