We enjoyed our two nights in the main bungalow house very much - we were staying in low season and almost had the entire hotel to ourselves. We also enjoyed a very nice massage down by the pool. I had read many reviews warning how difficult it was to find and how bad the road was so I came with low expectations of our journey there however all of these warnings seemed very strange when we arrived easily, on a perfectly good road!
The only thing which could be improved would be the variety of options on the menu and the quality of some of the dishes. We had lunch and two dinners at the hotel and the prawns, breaded chicken and the lamb were absolutely delicious but the pasta was a bit tasteless and the nasigoreng was more just fried rice and an egg with no sate sauce. However overall we enjoyed our stay a lot and have no complaints at all about the room or the bathroom - it was clean and luxurious.

Room Tip: pick a room in the main bungalow

Hard to find, especially at night under the rain but once you arrive amazing place.
Service was top notch, discreet and helpful. We were able to check out later so our daughter could take a nap.
Wooden bungalows were extremely clean and comfy.

Room Tip: Wooden bungalows are a haven of peacefulness

It sure is a hike from Kandy but on arrival it was everything we had hoped for.A real bungalow in a lovely garden setting high up in the hills above the Kandy area. The staff were welcoming The Suite was enormous and nicely decked out.. Four poster bed with lovely linens embroided to match the name of the suite. Ours being the rose suite.
We only had the one dinner which was a well presented and tasty curry. The wine list is limited and like all of Asia quite expensive by our standards.The second night we had wanted to venture into Kandy.
Breakfast in the garden was delightful.The sound of the birds adding to the ambience.The pool though a little cold was lovely after a hot day out.
The staff took pride in their establishment. Special thanks to Jeewan for making us so welcome.

Room Tip: they all looked lovely Our room was a suite

We came here after adam's peak. It was so nice to have a big and confortable room with a bath. The view from the swimming pool is amazing. It is located on a hill! Too bad the water was really cold to stay swimming. It was refreshing let say !
We regretted that this place belonged to a big company. It makes the history of this colonial place less nice than it could be.
For us, it was great for one night of luxury services but that's its.
Note that is you want to go to Kandy, you have to take a tuktuk for 800Rs one way. it is not very close.

I liked this place. I was not sure when we first arrived. Its a bit in the middle of nowhere and looking at it, unless you are a honeymmon couple, i was worried that at there being no where else to go but the restaurant is amazing and to be recommended. Yes, i would struggle todo a week here but for the two nights wehad i cannot recommend it enough.

Room Tip: all the rooms appear to be much the same
