Amazing relaxing place. Genuinely NICE people who WANT you to have a great experience. Amazing food. We'll remember our stay. Activity : walk, pool, bike, tuktuk tour around the tea plantations is a must do.

Lovely property, made particularly special by the excellent and attentive staff. The grounds are wonderfully maintained and the food was a real treat, also with great vegetarian options. Taylor's Hill is a destination in itself rather than a base for exploring, as it is a long and slow journey up from Kandy, but it is in close proximity to the...

We stayed in the Loolecondera room at Taylors Hill which was a good size with a large bathroom. It has a homely feel with very good service from the staff and excellent food. It is managed by a lady who speaks excellent English. There is a beautiful pool in the hotel grounds surrounded by stunning countryside. It's definitely a place...

Special setting in a large colonial house, in the middle of the tea area. We had a great, comfortable room and bathroom. The communal rooms are welcoming and can accommodate a large group or a romantic evening. Enjoyable food, but easy to eat too much if you have breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner. The content of the nature trail was...

A professionally managed and superb hotel in every way. Quiet (with only a handful of rooms) with a beautiful pool and sumptuous bedrooms, this was the best place we stayed out of six remarkable properties in Sri Lanka! What really made the stay special is the staff - from the ever present and helpful manageress to the table service and...

We have just spent two nights at Taylor's Hill. We had a wonderful time, the feeling is very homely and comfortable. It caters really well for couples or families. The children loved the tennis, badminton, croquet and a games room. The location is spectacular, nestled in the hills. It is a long treck to get to Taylor's Hill, but I...

Be careful Taylors Hill is not close to Kandy (1h30 drive) and should not be booked as a one night stop over as it is so nice you will like to stay longer! It is like a UK country house, with beautiful rooms, all different. Big garden and a swimming pool, just perfect to relax few days between your touristic...

Our stay felt like visiting friends in a country house. Very comfortable and excellent food . The staff laid on a great New Year's Eve celebration. The grounds are beautifully kept and there are lots of facilities. We enjoyed the visit to the tea plantation and a walk but felt the cost for these were excessive .

We had a lovely stay at Taylors Hill Food was excellent and the staff were very accommodating. We especially enjoyed the tour of Loolecondera with our guide Sajith, the guide and naturalist for the hotel. We appreciated the effort Dawn and her team go to to deliver a luxury experience in a remote area. We were transported visually back almost...

Cons: terrible service (told them we're vegetarian but on the second night served meat and on the third told that there was only one vegetarian main so one of us would have to eat meat / manager not very friendly and...

With a swimming pool, badminton and tennis courts, croquet plus walking and biking trails there's much to enjoy in the beautiful countryside. The hotel amenities include family rooms, TV, snooker and FREE WIFI all arranged with stylish decor retaining the feel of a stay in a country house hotel in Sri Lanka.
