Surrounded by mist swathed mountains in the centre of Sri Lanka, sits the hill capital Nuwara Eliya. Hotels and guest houses from the rustic to the grandiose dot the slopes and hide in lush green plantations. Built around an old Tudor country house which served as a grand colonial residence during the days of British rule, here, you take a step back a hundred years and more to another era of old world charm and tradition, where customs of yore are still maintained to the letter.
With 40 standard rooms, 7 family rooms and 5 suites, the St Andrews hotel offer a reasonable standard of 3* accommodation and an opportunity experience how life must have been in Colonial times, including an excellent billiards table.
Local tours can be organised to Horton Plains, the botanical gardens and the hotel is well placed of the Nuwra Eliya golf club.
