"A slightly older hotel as compared to Araliya City Hotel but has still retained some of its charm. Quite centrally located in Nuwara Eliya. The rooms were satisfactory but it was alright as we had spent most of our time outside of the hotel. Staff are extremely hardworking and polite though I suggest that training the staff more will take the experience to the next level. The hotel has an impressive breakfast and dinner spread."

"We travelled to the Tea Factory Hotel from Kandy getting higher in altitude as we went. The mists rolled in and eventually we turned down a narrow bumpy road that led through some tea plantations. The very imposing Tea Factory Hotel loomed suddenly out of the fog. On arrival, we were welcomed with a warm towel and cup of sweet tea. Some of the machinery from the old tea factory days remains and the reception area is very tastefully furnished. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable with tea supplied from the hotels own miniture tea factory. The bathroom was functional but the bath/shower area furnishing was slightly dated. Evening meal in the form of a buffet and the bar area was well thought out with a range of tasty food. Reception staff were faultless throughout our short stay. If you are staying in the area specifically to visit World's End in Horton Plains, the van to take you there leaves from the Grand Hotel in Nuwara Eliya (1 hour's drive from the Tea Factory Hotel) so it would make more sense to stay at/near that hotel. However, if you fancy staying in an unusual hotel with spa, gym, good food and outstanding staff service then I cannot recommend the Tea Factory Hotel highly enough. (The road to the hotel will certainly give your vehicle's suspension a thorough testing!)"

"One of the best memories in Sri Lanka. This cozy British house is in the tranquile hills not far from the lake. The reception room is decent and artistic. The billiards room was a fun and relaxing time for us. The service is full of heart. It is our first time in a hotel where the staff prepared hot-water bag. As we didn't expect it to be cold in mountains, this hot-water bag warmed our body for whole night. Plus, there is small heater in the room, which is very rare in Sri Lanka but very useful in the mountains."

" Great hospitality! But you are at Toppass. It was cold and misty. They provided extra blankets and a heater. It stormed all night. The drive up to the place seemed quite dangerous but our Sri Lankan driver had no trouble. . . so maybe it was just dangerous to the foreigners. They also served us tea as we arrived which helped warm us up. The breakfast was large and very nice with eggs, toast, fruit, tea, veggie curry, and tea and coffee. Thank you for a nice time👍"

"It was a memorable stay in the heart of Nuwara Eliya, just beside the Gregory Lake. The staff was very helpful and the food was awesome. The place was ideal for quiet, comfortable and cosy stay. Little disappointed on the room heaters as it was not sufficient enough. I was staying at the best rooms and rooms were very clean . The prices were little bit expensive but really worth it."
