“A lovely rest stop”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

We stopped at Matara Rest House for cups of Ceylon tea. It has long history beginning in the year 1780 as part of Matara Fort. The Rest House was newly reconstructed following damage in the 2004 Tsunami with Dutch type furniture and extraordinary historic photos hanging on the walls giving historic information. I took wheel photos of wagons in the yard but most intriguing were the wheels which operated ceiling fans in their formal dining area. A very interesting place.
