We found this place because they like dogs. We rented the bungalow with the private pool. Pool is 6' X 12' and perfect just to cool down in. The bungalow is huge with all the things you may want. Sat. TV, DVD, AC, Fridge etc. and best of all - privacy. The yard has a 10' wall around. The staff respected our wishes to be left alone for the two days. The food is excellent and will do room service. We have been there three times in the past 2 years and consider it our private retreat. If you any problems while you are there ask for Karen the marketing manager and part owner. She will whatever it takes to make your stay exactly what you wanted it to be. Bed is a huge oversize King and very comfortable. Prices are reasonable... and when you leave you will be happy with every rupees spent there. If you decide to stay in one of the regular rooms, there is a wonderful pool up above the hotel. There is a bar are for the adult, games room and other activities to do there if you decide to take children. All in all a wonderful place and a great experience. We had a flat tire when we woke up one morning - hotel arranged to take the vehicle into town and have it repaired - hassle free.

Room Tip: Get the bungalow with the pool.

It's one of a kind place. After travelling through a shady winding road it ends at Brook which is in the middle of a large coconut estate. Place is so close to nature and it give a homely feeling.
We went there on our honeymoon and stayed at a Garden Chalet with a private pool. It was very spacious and had a small private garden as well.
Chalet is clean and fully loaded including books, DVDs and even a Pillow menu. If you want more, they even have a separate book and DVD library. King size bed was super comfort.
Food was served À la carte and it is mouth-watering. The best fresh meals I have had so far.
On the first night they surprised us a with a cocktail which was on the house.
Next night, they even prepared "koththamalli" for us on request. Hospitality at it's maximum. (thumbs up)
Stayed two nights and enjoyed every bit of it, and surely will visit again.

Special thanks to Indika and crew for making our stay the perfect one!
Highly recommended for couples.

I wish we had spent more than one night here. What a fabulous experience it was!!
We arrived later than expected. We were warmly greeted by one of the owners.
After freshening up, we asked about food availability. They inquired about any food allergies or preferences/intolerances.
There was a standard menu with many interesting local options. But, when I asked about vegetarian options, I was asked what we would like.
An hour later, we were served a fabulous meal with Indian and Sri Lankan items. Outstanding preparations, served piping hot. Everything was made fresh.
Service was more like being at home.
The next morning, breakfast was another feast. Again, options of western or Asian foods. Plenty of it, made fresh and served promptly. Lots of locally grown fresh fruits.
I can't say enough about the staff. They anticipated our needs well, and every request was met with a smile, and promptly handled.
Rooms are great. The villas are spacious, very clean, and all the amenities one could imagine are provided. Beds are very comfortable. Linens and towels looked and smelled fresh.
At night, there are some insects (but did not encounter any mosquitos), which are attracted to the exterior lights. But, closing doors quickly kept them out of the rooms.
In the AM, we went on a walking tour of the property. It is a working plantation with lots of mangos, bananas and a large variety of vegetation. Our guide gave us coconut milk from a freshly picked coconut. Delicious.
They have a brick-making facility on the property, where they make the bricks for their buildings. Nice use of local resources.
I would love to spend several days here to really experience all the charms of this little hideaway.

Room Tip: Larger villas with plunge pools are fantastic.

Recommended by close friends, Brook Boutique, is the ultimate place to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We chose to stay in the Luxury Villa which far exceeded our expectations. The decor and furnishings were first class and the Jacuzzi Pool overlooking the fruit plantations provided an ideal retreat to sit watching different varieties of birds and butterflies. Leaving such comfortable surroundings was difficult but well worth it to spend time around the hilltop pool overlooking the surrounding mountain side. The food was excellent, as was the range of fine wines all may I say at reasonable prices. Throughout our stay all members of staff were attentive, helpful and a credit to the hotel management.

What a nice and peaceful place.The Villas are really good with their own pool. Food was excellent, and the breakfast was amazing. The most friendliest staff I have ever known, nothing was too much trouble for them. The swimming pool was on top of a hill overlooking the mountains. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the place.

Brook Boutique was recommended by a family member as a nice place to relax and unwind while still being close to the Sri Lankan cultural triangle. Our expectations were exceeded on every count! The hotel is located on an 86 acre Fruit Plantation in the mountains near Melsiripuri. It is possible to go days without hearing a mechanical noise - plane, train or automobile! But there is plenty to do. Hike to the nearby Monastry high in the mountains, paddle along the Brook and enjoy the birds and small animals, lay by the pool or just sit on your verandah and watch the world go by! If you wish to travel further afield, Kandy, Dambulla, Sigirya and Pinawalla Elephant Orphanage are all within about 90 mins drive and make easy day trips.

We stayed in a superior room which was enormous and fitted with high quality linen, pillows, cushions, drapery and widescreen satellite TV. The Garden rooms are even bigger with a private outdoor area, Jacuzzi and excercise equipment. We opted for the half board option which included breakfast and dinner. I defy anyone to get through the breakfast! There is a western option, Sri Lankan option or both! The Sri Lankan breakfast is sensational. The dinner menu is extensive and covers all major cuisines. Additionally, if the ingredients are somewhere in the menu, the Chef will prepare a meal of your liking. And, there is a very well stocked cellar! Most if not all the restaurant staff have worked overseas - from Salzburg to Dubai to Tokyo. The service is excellent.

The hotel staff are friendly and genuienly caring. We felt pampered for the entire seven days we stayed at Brook. Each room has a mobile telephone which guests can use for any request and from anywhere on the estate. The phone can also be taken with you on day trips and if you have any difficulties, you can call Brook for assistance. This is a unique service.

Brook is an outstanding property quitely nestled in the forest and plantations of the mountains near Melsiripuri. If you are looking for somewhere to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life in Sri Lankar yet close enough to the major sites for day trips, Brook is the ideal choice.

Room Tip: The superior rooms are huge and well equipped.m

This privately run hotel is a little gem. To wake in the morning in your comfortable and charming room to the sound of exotic bird song was just the start. Centrally located for the SL Cultural Triangle, Brook is a delight! Secret? Well no! Tell your friends. Now!!
