Location

Open in Google Maps

Rosyth Estate House enjoys a prime hillside setting located 10 minutes’ drive away from the town of Kegalle.

Take your pick from a wide-ranging array of activities - from walks and mountain biking within the estate, to visiting nearby attractions or making day trips out out to iconic Sri Lanka attractions.

Located a skip away is a local tea factory. Guests are welcome to visit the factory for a tour that takes you through the various tea production processes. Further out are attractions like Kandy (the city boasts a scenic lake and cultural attractions), Bible Rock, Victoria Golf Club and Kitugala (it’s one of the best locations on the island for white water rafting).

About a two-hour drive away from the property lies the Dambulla Caves, a temple complex known for its 14-metre Buddha statue and striking wall paintings. There’s also Adam’s Peak, the rock fortress of Sigiriya and Minneriya Safari.

Even thought the Rosyth House is based in Kegalle, this is just an hour from Kandy, so it is an excellent base for Kandy sightseeing. It is also just 15 minutes drive to Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. This luxurious boutique property is located up in the hills and is surrounded by a tea plantation. The rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable.The gardens surrounding the hotel are magical and peaceful. As we had just 2 nights to spare and we wanted to visit Kandy, as well as the tea country, we picked the Rosyth, because we could combine both activities while staying here! If you want a luxurious hideaway, and you love nature, as well as Excellent food and service, with stylish rooms, as well as being not too far from Kandy, and to get a taste of the tea plantations, then this is the Ideal place for it!

We loved this place! After a fairly extensive tour of the island, it was wonderful to stop at this peaceful estate, spend time relaxing on the veranda admiring the views across the valley and hills beyond. A truly authentic and genuine Sri Lankan experience. Tastefully decorated - each room is beautiful. The addition of A/C (it arrived this week I believe!) will be welcomed by many, but for us it didn't matter as the windows can be thrown open and every room has a ceiling fan. I would recommend Rosyth to anyone. Our family fell in love with it and their interconnecting room option was perfect for us. The library has an excellent selection of books - must read Michael Ondaatje (of English Patient fame) Running in the Family - as has historical connections to Rosyth and the Kegalle area. Fascinating. The staff could not have been more helpful and adaptable. I could go on - - but if you like peace and tranquillity and good food you can't go wrong here. And its only an hour or so from exploring Kandy (far too busy there to bother staying!) and an easy journey to Colombo or the airport - making it a great first or last stop. Thank you Delantha and your staff. I will never forget the Egg Hopper breakfast!

We spent two nights here in March 2015 , arriving after a long flight ! Dilantha and his team welcomed us and were so attentive but never intrusive. Everyone was so kind and helpful.The chef and his food were amazing and the best we had in Sri Lanka . The children adored it there and none of us wanted to leave ! Rosyth Estate is set in the stunning surroundings and has a sense of calm and serenity.The rooms were beautiful, My only regret is that we were unable to stay longer ! We hope to return and stay longer next time.

We had a wonderful two days here. Incredibly peaceful and so much better that being in a hotel. Delicious, delicious food and all cooked so we could watch and have some Sri Lankan cooking lessons. Really wish we had time to stay a bit longer, we could get used to the life style of a tea plantation owner! The library is great for all the family, quire surreal watching Shrek 2 in a cosy room in the tropics! Will have to come back to test the pool some time. Thank you so much. Ayobowan
