  • Had tea tasting. Good variety of teas. Bought white and green tea. It is near the falls. It is worth stopping, they offer tea tour. I didn't have time, as it was my last day.

  • In short: fantastic location with just okay food. They did an absolutely fantastic job with the location. It's a gorgeous building overlooking an even more gorgeous view. The interior is well planned and is tastefully decorated. The staff are very helpful and extremely nice. However, the food is merely okay. It's certainly not bad, but it's definitely not something to be writing home about. It would've been okay as cheaper place, but as it stands, the food is simply not worth the price.
  • A must stop over place to visit when ever I travel to Nuwara Eliya through Avissawella - Hatton Road. I have been visiting the establishment even before the castle was build, where the establishment was few meters further up towards Nuwara Eliya from where it is now. (The old place still in operation as a sales outlet... but have not been there as I tend to love the view from the new location far better). Having said this, I do enjoy a good cup of plain tea infused with ginger seated in the balcony of the castle. Oooh almost forgot the best of the best is there chocolate cake a must have. It is quite light and airy and is served with warmed chocolate syrup running over the cake. I tend to eat at least two pieces before I take to the tea, which again would be two cups of it, as I would love to sit and sip the tea whilst watching the ever changing weather patterns of the landscape, and the watch the vehicles pass by, and to feel the cool weather just rub on your skins and pass by, a feeling that love to bits. Recommended going up the watch tower and see the surroundings and that would definitely take your breath away. Washroom facilities are great and extremely clean, and is maintained properly, though vandalized by few unappreciative visitors with no brains. But hats off to the cleaning staff who is ever so nice to make sure to visit the wash room regularly and check the status and clean. A lovely place where one can enjoy with you never feeling the time you being passed by. Thus, its best recommended when you are not pressed for time. Non the less even for the rushing traveler, it is a good place to sit down and have a cup of tea and be refreshed (But loose on the relaxing bit). Visited September 2016
  • Awesome for photographers and tea lovers. The DEVON FALLS is just opposite the castle. You could see more of srilanka @ my instagram page _AeroPixel_
  • the place is awesome. have a nice view when we go to the top of castle, there we can see the Devon falls also. the tea is also superb. they have a tea museum underneath the castle
  • Very nice place. The sarounding area is also very nice. I usually go and have a tea from this place when I travel on this way.
