Amazing boutique hotel in the middle of a tea plantation. Stunning views, nice pool. This is a great place to relax for a few nights. There's not much to do around, so you're really going for the quiet tea plantation atmosphere.

The location is a bit remote but beautiful - surrounded by green hills with a view on the mountains, this place is stunning. The indoor pool was not in use af the moment but the outdoor pool was really great. The staff especially was really welcoming and helpful, and we had a great time staying here.

View from the hotel and infinity pool is amazing (in the middle of nowhere in the mountains, even when you are in the shower you have an amazing view) -food was really really good!! (They even prepared sandwiches for us very early in the morning since we had to leave and also soy meat in the afternoon since I’m vegetarian) -owner is so nice (he took us for a walk around his land and drove us to the station the next morning and in general always asked what we needed) -very good WiFi connection, hot shower and amazing king size bed -all in all 100% recommended and we will come back as soon as the jungle cabanas are finished :-)) -not really a minus because we loved the location but since it is very remote and there is nothing around you are very dependent on the hotel in terms of food, transportation etc., it takes approx. 20 min to the next small city and 30 min to Kandy but the road is pretty bad (however that’s why it’s so amazing in the first place because there is absolutely nothing)

Old Frankland is one of the best places in Sri Lanka. Everybody is very friendly and polite, the dinner is amazing, the place and the view is extraordinary. The best place to relax and come down after traveling in Sri Lanka. We booked one night but we stayed the rest of our time and fell in love. Thank you so much!!!
