We stayed at two different bungalows in two nights due to availability. Mandira Dick Oya Bungalow was our first night, we had an large two bedroom suite, despite there only being two of us. The decor looks as though it is still from the British colonial days but that is part of the charm. The staff were very attentive and...

Probably not refurbished since the 50's this place is comfortable but dull and the owners prefer to switch off 2/3 of the lights to save a few penny rather than create some sort of atmosphere... Also, we got trapped with a $50/person (more than 5 times the average dinner price in Sri Lanka) Newyear's eve dinner which turned out to...

We stayed in many hotels throughout Sri Lanka during our visit but this hotel has by far served the BEST food (dinner experience) that I have ever had the pleasure of eating served in a great dinning room. There was plenty of both veg and non-veg options and every dish was delicious. The hotel even went out of the way...

The room we stayed at here was very clean. Wife enjoyed it very much, and the service is absolutely wonderful. Chef here is very good and cooked both excellent Sri Lankan and Western cuisine. Looking forward to coming back here one day.

We had a pleasant stay at Mandira Bungalows - Dickoya earlier this month. We stayed in the Family Suite, which was ideal for us (2 adults + 2 children aged 8 and 6). We liked the place: nice colonial/English style, very good service (the level of English of the waiters may not be top-notch but they really try hard to...

We went in September and this was considered to be the off season. Meaning the weather was a little colder, particularly being in the Highlands. The room was of reasonable quality. The lock was a little irritating as you need to get use to playing around with the key to get it to turn. The dining room was nice. We...

It is a beautiful place but to my disappointment I lost my shopping bag full of different teas purchased from st.clairs. When we reached Mandira Stratdhon bungalow the bag just disappeared so the visit which should have been a memorable one turned out to be a disaster!!!!

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
