Bandarawela Hotel

The Bandarawela Hotel is one of the distinguished remnants of the British colonial era in Sri Lanka. At  the turn of the 20th century, the British decided to extend the railway to the southern highlands and the planters saw the potential for a holiday retreat for planters and railway employees.  

Over the years, little has changed at the hotel. Its' history comes alive everywhere, on the evocative photographs in the lounge, in the corridors that lead to the rooms with cast iron and brass beds, in the wood panelled bar and the working fireplace. The rooms are well appointed and provide all necessary amenities. The location where the hotel is based is also any naturalists delight. Once said to have one of the healthiest climates in the world., the area is dotted with English country style houses and is famous for its flavoured tea, pears and strawberries.

Bandarawela is located within walking distance from the railway station and is an ideal base for excursions to Horton Plains, Adisham Monastery, the tea plantations, nearby waterfalls, Udawalawe Wildlife Sanctuary and Hakgala Botanical Gardens.
