We had a wonderful experience at Alpine. Classical English architecture enables Alpine to stand out amongst best Hotels in the Central Hilly terrains of Sri Lanka. The Manager is a character to reckon with, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. He arranged tours for us while discussing philosophy & Quantum Mechanics.
Alpine Hotel is preparing to celebrate its Centenary Year next year 2014. We found the rooms spacious & comfortable although they were dated. Views of the Mountains, Lake Gregory and the Racecourse make it have an edge over Grand & St. Andrew's Hotel where we stayed the last time.
The Pool table and Bar is a great place to relax after a tiring hike around the Mountains and on a rainy day. The restaurant served fresh salads and veggies with our western, Sri Lankan and Chinese cuisine.
The staff were much more friendly and helpful compared to the staff of other hotels in Sri Lanka. The versatile Manager arranged bicycle and 4X4 tours of uncanny terrain into Horton Plains and the Mountains.
It was a great experience we had at Alpine ..... I'd recommend any traveler to check it out for a couple of nights to taste a glimpse of paradise ...... real value for money ....
