Beautiful bungalow for a one night stay.
Beautiful colonial bungalow where the service and food are excellent! Only down points are the location; it’s in the highest village and therefore the access road is not the easiest to navigate making Nuwara Eliya less accessible. Also, we were in room 2 and the noise from the rest of the bungalow was very noticeable; the phone ringing in the evening and other guests walking around the corridors.

Hidden gem off the beaten track
Super comfy beds, beautifully presented old colonial bungalow. The staff were really lovely and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Absolutely delicious food.

Beautiful bungalow high up in a tea plantation
We had an amazing 2 nights at the recently renovated Oliphant Bungalow. We had a warm welcome and the staff are attentive and always there to help. The whole place is very tastefully decorated in neutral tones, with beautiful gardens. The room and bathroom is spacious and elegant. The breakfast and dinner was very good and everything is prepared fresh on site. There was a wine list but only one red wine was available and it would have been nice to have more choice. We enjoyed a 2 hour circular walk through the tea plantation behind the hotel. Thank you to Lakshman, Keseven, Mr Rathnasiri and the entire team there for making our stay a memorable one and we hope to return again!

Unique but quiet experience in the hills of NE
A unique boutique hotel, converted from an estate owner's bungalow, in a village that is the highest tea plantation in Sri Lanka. The property itself is really charming and the staff incredibly attentive. We did an amazing walk up into the hills behind the hotel with gorgeous views and which yielded interesting snippets of the history of the estate. It's set slightly outside Nuwara Eliya so not easy to get down to the town without transport (although I believe tuk tuks can be arranged) but so much nicer than staying in town itself. It's relatively new and not so well known yet so a little quiet but definitely worth staying and you see a more authentic side of the area and get to understand the life of the tea picker and small farm holder. Owned by a larger group, promotion will be put behind this hotel and it will start to get known. Great for travellers who appreciate a more unique and peaceful environment and don't want to go with the large groups of tourists who are herded round Sri Lanka in big tour buses.

This place is amazing, as with all lovely "boutique" hotels it's the people that make the difference, everything was lovely from the food to the beds just perfect. The staff were wonderful.

A lovely stay
We stayed at the Bungalow for 2 nights and had a really good experience. A little further out of Nuwara Eliya than other hotels, however only a short tuk-tuk ride away. Signage towards the hotel could be improved slightly, as it is a little off the beaten track! The rooms were of an exceptional standard, the styling was very similar to that of a Cotswold country hotel! The staff are extremely attentive, if not slightly too eager to be on hand in the restaurant at all times! Aside from this, a truly lovely stay.
