After making the long, windy trek up to Heritance Tea Factory - this place was a breath of fresh air - literally. Set amongst the tea fields, this hotel offers brilliant 360 degree views.
The staff go out of their way to help you with whatever you're after, in particular Prasanna on the front desk and Mohan were both very helpful.
This hotel is a throwback to a bygone era with an old lift servicing the 4 floors. The hotel is something of a museum dedicated to tea production.
Our room overlooked the tea country as I'm sure most do in the old converted tea factory. The lower temperatures overnight mean that you'll need your heating, something I never expected on this trip to Sri Lanka! It does get cold overnight though, before breaking into a beautiful clear day. Given that this hotel is a converted tea factory, they are compact, but cosy.
The food options are extensive. Breakfast is a large buffet, the a la carte dinner menu is also diverse. We also took the option to eat in the train restaurant which is somewhat expensive for what you get, but was something a little different to the usual. Not a must do, but if you're looking to change things up, it is a good option.
The hotel offers a range of very cheap activities like tea plucking and a nature walk where you can explore the nearby tea fields and villages.
A fantastic stay, and if you're heading to the hillside in Sri Lanka, you'll be hard pressed to find a better accommodation option than this.
