9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing property and a great team who manage it. We were very well looked after. All the very best to Dinesh the Head Chef and property manager who pours his heart out in every dish he makes!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Bernard and his staff were friendly, helpful and made our short stay so welcoming. The roaring fire in the dining room was lovely and Bernard even put hot water bottles into our beds! Alot of effort went into the dinner. Unfortunately we had a rather filling lunch so we couldn't fully do justice to dinner. But we will return as we enjoyed our stay so much.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing hotel and old building. Chef Dinesh takes amazing care with his team and makes sure everything is alright. We really felt like at a family. Food also amazing and we even got breakfast at 5am before our departure to words end. Can only recommend this place.
Cons: Nothing at all only watch out that prepayment is stated at booking but they don’t charge in advance and you have to pay at check out
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staying at Fern cliff was like stepping back in time and staying with colonial friends. Behind secure gates, our taxi swung into the driveway pulling up in front of a covered porch which was just as well as it was pouring with rain. Bernard, the Manager, welcomed us with ginger tea and homemade biscuits in front of a roaring fire. Our room was huge and comfortable. The highlight was however dinner in the elegant dining room. Again in front of a roaring fire. A delicious choice of either western or Sri Lankan home cooked cuisine. Breakfast was similarly delicious. The perfect place to break your journey between Kandy and the highlands.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Whoever restored this heritage house deserves an award; the building is charmingly old world with all the perks of present day and an immaculate garden. The food was top notch as well. Ask for a surprise dessert!
Cons: The credit card reader was broken and I barely had enough cash to cover the slightly high prices. Also, none of the rooms were ready on time and we had to wait a while at check in.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service and food, and room~ strongly recommend for stay.
Cons: I booked a full board room but in fact it should be half board, which is a mistake from booking.com.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff was so great, attentive to all of our needs. He also made us visit the rest of this family house. The history of the whole family tree made the little difference. We were staying in a real house as opposed to a chain hotel. I would recommend a 1000 times for a nice quiet trip.
10.0 Excellent

Heritance Tea Factory - Nuwara Eliya - Building
3
8.9 Excellent (1,618 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Where else in the world can you stay in a converted tea factory, pluck your own tea and take it home with you as a souvenir? At 2km above sea level, the views over our lush green organic plantations as the sun mingles with the mist are truly unforgettable. Enjoy them as you tuck into high tea on the terrace or a delicious tea-themed menu in the restaurant. Welcome to Heritance Tea Factory, where the kettle is always on.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great tea factory theme. Beautiful and historic. Great views. Amazing and friendly restaurant and bar staff, reception staff are a little uptight. Spa treatment was great.
Cons: Bathrooms need updating. Overpriced. In room TV quality needs to be better. WiFi did not work.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Yes the property is remote, miles away from Nuwara Eliya up the mountain, bear that in mind when booking. However, if nature, breathtaking views and peace you are looking for, this is the place. Food was acceptable, nothing to write home about. Service we received was exceptional. The hotel is like a living museum and activities on offer keep you busy. Rooms are very dated, carpet must be about 20 years old, from when the factory was converted BUT beds and bedding were heavenly, that’s all I care about and the views are stunning. Overall i loved my time there and would recommend staying at least 2 nights. Morning nature walk is a must and tea plucking experience.
Cons: Mediocre food
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff The beatch
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It’s gorgeous
Cons: The drivers have a lot of organising to for train tickets to Ella and Kandy and they have no Wi-Fi. It would make everybody’s lives easier if the drivers could have a sitting room as the place is miles from nowhere - and were given access to Wi-Fi. They have no meal choices and are fed chicken most nights. Our driver hates chicken . X Why don’t you make life better for the people who bring your guests to you! You cannot survive without them!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location of the resort, breathtaking views over the mountain Clouds cover the resort at night while seeing the sunrise and sunset beautifully from the mountain top. Staff were incredibly nice and welcoming, especially Sajid and Nwan! Made us feel so comfortable :) highly recommended
Cons: Rooms weren’t so comfortable
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely staff, very clean and comfortable room.Beautiful interior to the hotel, well- documented history of its history and evident concern for the environment. Good range of food offered plus staff available to cook fresh eggs, dosa etc. at breakfast time.
Cons: Our visit was marred by the weather unfortunately. Access to the hotel proved difficult due to the weather conditions and narrowness of the road. I couldn't comment on the view as the mist obscured it but Im sure it would be stunning under normal conditions. The hotel attracts a very cosmopolitan clientele but some were confused by the food on offer, better labelling or someone on hand to give advice would have been useful

2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Far out of town, completely fake "English" theme. Rooms have no aircon nor mosquito nets on the windows, so choose between sealtering and being eaten alive. Shower leaked water over the floor. Very poor breakfast. The amount they asked for when we left seemed more than the booking.com fee, and they then refused to give us a bill (we have asked repeatedly, and even booking.com have asked them. The only possible inference is rank dishonesty. All this accompanied by an arrogant attitude.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We were a group of 4 girls. We reached the property around 9ish, and it's all eerie silent, the kitchen closes at 8 but the staff were really considerate and helpful and extended a warm welcome to us by serving us tea and asking us how was our journey. They took our order for dinner, though it took long(as they were literally cooking from scratch) but the food was delicious. They have been very helpful and courteous. The property is very clean, quite and the view is amazing. We stayed for 2 days and wished could have stayed longer. I would highly recommend the property to anyone band everyone traveling to nuwara eliya.

7.9 Good

4.2 Okay
Pros: The view and few member of the staff
Cons: First night i got there I saw stains on the towels in the bathrooms. Then, realised that the water temperature & pressure of the shower fluctuated a lot, could not take a proper shower in 3 nights. Third, the food is very limited every day breakfast lunch dinner you eat the exact same thing, few options and way over priced as you don’t have any close restaurants to the hotel. Food stops at 10pm and there is no 24h food service. I rang several times to the reception and no one answered, they are clearly way under staffed. On top of all of this, the SPA was not operational for some reason. Would not recommend it as it is not a 5 star hotel, nowhere close to being one. First and last time for sure.

5.8 Okay

8.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It has been more than 10 days since we left Stafford Bangalow but I still miss everything there: considerate service, awesome building and decoration, yummy meals and high tea...it can offer you a very comfortable and relaxed stay without disturbing. Even though you have to take one hour driven from pink post office to the banglow, trust me this is indeed a worthy sacrifice.
Cons: Nothing. We will come back absolutely!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing staff of the place made everything to make our stay perfect!
Cons: We only had one night! Would stay for more!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Where to start...the bed was the comfiest I’ve slept in in a long, long time. The type you sink into with feather down pillows and duvet and crisp white cotton sheets. The staff and quality of the service was impeccable from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble and they went the extra mile at every turn for example meeting you in the garden as you returned home from a trip with cold towels and drinks. The food was marvellous- cooked to perfection and the menu varied to accommodate preferences and dietary requirements. The gardens are so lovingly tended and the house steeped in nostalgia. It took me back to my childhood. A truly magical place with service that the George V would struggle to provide.
Cons: A little further from Newara Eliya than other options but well worth the journey time. The countryside around Ragala is picture postcard perfect.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful stunning property with the loveliest staff who spoilt us
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very nice ambience, garden. The bungalow is beautiful. First class service. Our butler was the best. Enough facilities to keep kids occupied. We enjoyed the mini golf, games room, morning walk to the tea estate and going to the picnic spot. Wide selection of books and magazines. They planned a nice birthday celebration for my mum in the games room. You will be pampered throughout your stay. Highly recommend staying here.
Cons: Overall it’s awesome but a few things to note- Too far from Nuwara Eliya No pool or bathtub Food prices were not available till we asked for it. Food choices could have been better. If you didn’t like the menu for the day there isn’t another choice. As portion size was very big , a kids menu for kids would have been appreciated.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I liked everything about the place. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast was excellent. On the day we were checking out they even prepared a simple lunch for my 1yo. Will revisit for a longer stay.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts are simply the loveliest people, incredibly helpful and going out of their way to help. The room in the attic is very romantic and quaint, especially the bathroom. Slightly outside of Nuwara Eliya but all tuk tuk drivers knows where it is so easy to get back and forth.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The villa was well kept and smelt amazing, furnishings looked new and the bed very comfortable. We were greeted with tea on arrival which was a nice touch, and given a packed breakfast to take on our hike early the next morning which was appreciated. The location is a little further out of town but we enjoyed being amongst the tea fields so thought it was a great spot.
Cons: We were staying on the ground floor and found the footsteps from upstairs fairly noisy. As it’s a wooden building this wasn’t a surprise and didn’t put us off staying here again, however I’d recommend requesting a room upstairs if you’re a light sleeper.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful, very peaceful hotel surrounded by tea plantations, bright and green. The managers do a tour along the tea plantations and it is absolutely amazing! Unfogetable experience. The hotel serves good hot breakfasts and yammy tea with milk. Staff is the best team ever, very kind, helpful and open-minded. It was pleasure do spend time there and enjoy long talks with the staff.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view, the room and the staff were excellent. The delux room was perfect for our family of 4.
Cons: No hand towels or face clothes.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Lovely setting in the tea fields and easy tuk tuk ride into the town. Nice place to relax and escape from a busy itinerary. Charming old buildings (which may need some maintenance) but added to the colonial tea plantation feeling. The staff were available to go out of their way to help with your requests - sometimes requests were not actioned without several requests so be persistent and all will work our well. We enjoyed our first two nights so much we extended by a day.
Cons: Set-up is like a home stay so breakfasts are communal - not a problem for us but wanted to mention. However, unlike other home stays dinners are not provided. There was a kitchen area but we were not invited access to it. You are suggested ordering a take-away or to go out to dinner in town - options in town are limited to the big hotels.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect. Those little cottage type room and surroundings made me feel like home. V nice and attentive staff. Homemade breakfast. Nice view from tea fields. It is actually a villa in middle of tea fields
Cons: Loved everything. Nothing to dislike about this property

Pros: The staff are so helpful! They are so keen to please and so friendly, although little English. Our son was sick and they organised a tuktuk to an English speaking doctor. The rooms are larger than average and very quiet at night. Just outside of town, Rs20 for the ten minute bus ride to Nuwara Eliya. Owner organised van to Ella at reasonable price too. Allow an hour to Horton Plains National Park (tuktuk from end of lane). We went by tuktuk and he waited the three and half hours we were there.
Cons: Weak Wifi signal. Basic breakfast of tea,egg and toast, although we didn’t push for more than that. Breakfast not included in price.

Pros: This is local hotel. The staffs are friendly. We need get up at 4:45am to hike the plain. The boss also prepared the delicious breakfast for us,let us take away. The hotel is on the hill.I think it’s a bit remote even though there is only about 2km far away from the center. The most exciting is we can see the fantastic view. I like this view. It‘s worthable for our stay
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I took a taxi from the bus station and halfway to the property we met Namadi who transferred my backpack to his car and drove me to a nearby restaurant for lunch. He is very helpful and offered to hike the Leopard's Rock unfortunately I didn't have enough time. It would have been great though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place to stay in Nuwara Elija. The room was big and very clean, the bathroom was also big and extremely clean. View from the hotel is awesome. Breakfast was good. And the last but not least is the owner who is extremely nice person with whom you can talk and talk about everything.
Cons: Everything was great.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very powerful shower and overall nice spacious bathroom and room. Thick blankets on the bed to stay warm in the night and carpet on the floor. View from the common area was lovely as the hostel is on top of a hill. Staff were very friendly and had lots of suggestions of things to do in the area.
Cons: The common areas have lots of potential but currently aren't really being used. It is a huge space but it feels like a conference centre. I think some sofas, bean bags and areas to relax would be a huge improvement. Water in the shower went cold for the second person showering. Hard toast at breakfast.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good views over the city, quiet, comfortable room, good hot shower. Namadi the host has loads of info having been a tour guide, a real “fixer” sorted tickets for the train for us

4.2 Okay
Pros: The view and few member of the staff
Cons: First night i got there I saw stains on the towels in the bathrooms. Then, realised that the water temperature & pressure of the shower fluctuated a lot, could not take a proper shower in 3 nights. Third, the food is very limited every day breakfast lunch dinner you eat the exact same thing, few options and way over priced as you don’t have any close restaurants to the hotel. Food stops at 10pm and there is no 24h food service. I rang several times to the reception and no one answered, they are clearly way under staffed. On top of all of this, the SPA was not operational for some reason. Would not recommend it as it is not a 5 star hotel, nowhere close to being one. First and last time for sure.
