The Strathdon Bungalow has a great staff. I very much enjoyed the meals and service they provided and also the opportunity to dine at the communal table with other travellers. They recommended a great two hour ealk into the tea plantations above - one of the most memorable things I did In Sri Lanka. But be aware the place has...

Overall a bad experience. My husband and I took our Mums for a 60th Birthday so we were trying to show them a nice time. First issue when we got there for a two night stay was that they didn't serve alcohol! Might've been nice if that had been advertised on their website? So off we went in search of...

Zinc Journey Mandira Bungalows have three bungalows in the region of Hatton. I stayed with my husband at Mandira Strathdon Bungalow, which only has 4 rooms and is everything one might expect from tailor made hotel experience. It has absolutely stunning views over the tea plantations that look as if they were designed by Dutch artist Escher. Another detail I...

A very peaceful and quiet place full of greenery where you can charge your batteries. We've been to Mandira Dickoya Bungalow, a 5 rooms British house, well maintained, clean and with all facilities in place. The great things there were people who provide the services, even though they didn't look expert in what they do (I don't believe that they've...

This bungalow has around 5 rooms if I'm not mistaken. I reserved 3 rooms. The special feature about the rooms are, they are very spacious and gives you a colonial feeling. Rooms are very comfortable. You can ask for any food you like from the staff. I don't think they have a specialist cook. But the food they prepare is...

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
