hi - I do not stay at Glendevon - but it would a nice place for all 6 of you and the little one. It's like having a bungalow to yourself and you can request the chef what you would like to eat. It's near a little village with young kids around and if you have spare items to give away, they would be happy - football, pencils. The place is quite remote and you can walk amongst the tea plantations but apart from that - there is nothing except a nice place to relax. The veranda overlooks the hill above and breakfast in the sunshine was great there and the little one can enjoy the whole house. Please get in touch directly with the Manager there. He is helpful.

I doubt you would be able to cycle many places in sri lanka due to the traffic and drivers. I think it would be too dangerous. We had a private driver so I'm sorry I don't know how far this was from a train station but it's 20 minutes drive from Nuwara Eliya. You really need a driver to stay at this hotel because of the distance out of town.

Can the double room add bed? Or accommodate 3 girls in one bed?
Bonjour Deepal, nous étions les premiers dans ce lieu magique... Tout y était parfait Emy et Manu ... Do you remember ?
