Lovely property

trip advisor rating

My friend and I stayed 3 nights in the Macnaughton Twin Room in June 2019. The drive to Ragala took 6hrs, with a stop at Watawala Tea Cup for breakfast. The Manager Sampath was there to greet and check us in. Dinesh was our butler for the first night and during the balance stay it was Christy who took care of us. Nuwan’s cooking was very good, and even though we were the only guests in the bungalow, we got 3 course meals in generous portions.


A very unique & a beautiful colonial bungalow with great service

Me & my wife traveled in May 2019. The highlight of this place is how alive this bungalow was, the garden & the wildlife was teeming with life. The rooms were very clean and spacious (we stayed at the Farquharson) with direct access to the garden. The living area is perfect, rusty & comfortable. We stayed on BB, excellent English breakfast & dinner too – we had String hoppers and rice.

Loved it here, probably the most memorable stay in Sri Lanka due to the design of the cottage (interior is antiques, scottish history items, ultra clean) – the outside garden is absolutely lovely, flowers and birds everywhere, and such an interesting experience to have the old world western charm with the Sri Lankan hill country. Was very insightful to be staying in a bungalow right in the middle of the every day tea worker’s cottages, and to hear the temple chanting and school songs in the background. Food amazing, very fresh, high standard. Service by the young staff is very attentive and here they are much more personal and engaging than the large hotels. I liked the book collection as there were plenty of vintage and historic photos of the plantation owners, the tea workers, Sri Lankan birds, wildlife. As an Australian tourist, it was exactly what I would want in a small luxury hotel, as you take the time to read and relax in this type of setting. I would come here if you are a couple of small group of friends – Its quiet and peaceful and the dinner is very special. The trip from Kandy to here was quite long so keep this in mind. Views and villages, temples etc along the way are great.
