  • Even though this place is targeted at tourists, it gives a nice overview to the manufacturing process and the different grades of tea. It is lovely to enjoy a hot cup of tea during cooler seasons.
  • Good place to taste the sri lankan tea with great hospitality
  • The most Iconic, Hollywood looking "MACWOODS" Sign board is not there since the ownership changed. You can have a tea and a chocolate cake
  • The view was good, but other aspects were not satisfactory, you can stop here to take a few photos then head to blueview tea factory, where ones can have a more detailed and clear tour and a wider variety of tea products at much reasonable price.
  • Fresh and clean. Quality of the most products
