Bandarawela Hotel - Sri Lanka Hotels

2**+from £699
per person, 7 Nights Package on B&B Basis
Bandarawela Hotel - Introduction
Bandarawela Hotel has colonial charm and comfort in the tea country. Built in the traditional style, yet showing a marked British influence with its old world charm and graciousness, Bandarawela Hotel is situated over 4000 ft above sea level and is Sri Lanka's first mountain resort hotel to be built by the British over 100 years ago. Bandarawela Hotel's origins date back to when the railways were being extended by the British from Nanu Oya to the southern highlands. The Nuwara Eliya tea planters soon saw the potential of what was then a little-known village hamlet and it soon developed into a popular holiday retreat, especially for planters and railway employees.

Over the years, little has changed at the hotel with the history of a bygone era literally hanging to the walls. Slumber on an immaculate antique four poster bed, take a leisurely stroll through an old city or enjoy a fine "cuppa" on the lawn with some freshly baked cakes. Bandarawela Hotel is a welcome alternative and well-suited for guests looking for a conveniently-located hotel offering colonial-style mid-range accommodation and facilities.
