As we were planning another visit to beloved Horton Plains we needed a place close by that would be both convenient and homely. We came across Glenesk Bungalow by chance, our family immediately felt drawn towards its charm after seeing the images of the place. We arrived at the place around 3 in the afternoon and was greeted by our hostess for the weekend who was very welcoming and kind. The staff had arranged freshly brewed tea along with home made cookies upon arrival and was available whenever we needed their services.
The evening should be spent by the front window couch curled up with a loved one or a good book while enjoying the view of the mountains and surrounding valley. A leisurely walk around the area help calm your mind and let you wind down from the hustle of city life. The evening time, settling down with the family around the fire place with a good bottle of wine was perfect followed up by their delicious dinner menu.
The rooms were spacious and very clean, the gardens were well kept adding to the beauty of the area. The breakfast was nice, we went for the Sri Lankan option.
Overall the experience at the bungalow was just what we needed as its very close to Horton Plains national park.
We thank the whole team and hope to be back the next time we plan to visit the national park.
Had a wonderful stay in Glenesk Bungalow. Without doubt the best choice! View from the bungalow is magnificent and the garden is amazing. Loved sitting by the fireplace in the evening. We stayed in the Rose Room which was the main bedroom of the bungalow, very spacious and comfortable.
Lovely host not only ensured we had a great stay, but helped us with various other things like transportation and organizing our trip to hortain plains. And the staff was friendly and helpful throughout the stay as well.
Excellent hospitality! I hope to be back.
