The Hotel is situated in Nuwara Eliya making a perfect base for exploring the tea country and Horton Plains national park. It is also very easy to wander into town and have a look at some of the shops, colonial style buildings and the botanical garden.
The hotel is on the older side and some of the rooms could do with a bit of an update however the architecture is of a lovely colonial style. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were functional.
We were warned by our travel company (Audley) that service could sometimes be a bit haphazard however we were extremely impressed by all the staff. They were attentive and extremely friendly.
The food was very good with a range of traditional indian and sri lankan curries available at the buffet. I do have the slight criticism however that the food could have been a bit hotter (tended to be a bit lukewarm). The prices for the buffet and a la carte options were very reasonable. Every evening there was also a pianist who plays throughout the meal which is a lovely touch.
Overall I would definitely recommend jetwing st andrews for those that are looking for comfortable accommodation in this area.
