À propos de la Taylors Hill

Taylor’s Hill Estate a été bâti à Kandy il y a plus d’un siècle par un fermier britannique et se caractérise par un style architectural original et très plaisant, faisant la part belle aux pierres locales. Le domaine est agrémenté de vastes et luxuriantes pelouses et de jardins remplis de fleurs. Il y a beaucoup de choses à faire dans la région : randonnées, pêche et visites de plantations de thé, par exemple. Taylor’s Estate est fait pour celles et ceux qui sont à la recherche d’un refuge tranquille dans la magnifique campagne encore préservée du Sri Lanka.

Il y a cinq chambres agréablement aménagées dans la propriété et chacune porte un nom différent : Pattiyagama, Loolecondera, Taylor, Le Cocq et Lipton. Elles disposent toutes d’une salle de bains attenante et d’un lit double, sauf Taylor, qui est dotée de lits jumeaux. La plus somptueuse des cinq chambres est la suite Pattiyagama, qui bénéficie d’un coin salon et d’une agréable cheminée.

Le tarif de location de Taylor’s Hill Estate inclut de succulents repas. Un petit-déjeuner composé de trois plats est servi tous les matins, ainsi que le thé de l’après-midi accompagné de quelques gâteux puis un excellent dîner dans la soirée. Pour le déjeuner, les hôtes ont le choix entre découvrir une autre cuisine ou faire appel aux services de la villa. Le domaine bénéficie en outre de bonnes installations pour les loisirs, notamment une piscine à débordement, un court de tennis et de badminton et un jeu de croquet.

I cannot recommend Taylor’s Hill highly enough – without a doubt my favourite hotel I have ever stayed in! I spent two nights there in September 2015 with a friend in the beautiful ‘Taylor’ room. Taylor’s Hill is a beautiful colonial house with immaculate gardens and wonderfully decorated interior – SUCH a nice atmosphere overall. We were very lucky in that we happened to be the only guests in the hotel for the majority of our stay and the service was exceptional – but I don’t doubt that it would have been just as good had the hotel been full! Dawn was lovely – welcoming, and very helpful with her recommendations of things to do during our stay. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. And the FOOD! We couldn’t believe how delicious absolutely everything was! It could rival most London restaurants. Even though we were the only guests there were several choices for each course at every meal and every single thing we ate was spot on. The freshest fruit salads and smoothies, amazing full English breakfast, afternoon tea with homemade cakes and sandwiches, exquisite soups, curries and desserts… the best food we had in the whole of Sri Lanka. Apart from lounging around in the beautiful living room or morning room or gardens, there is also a TV room, snooker table, pool, croquet lawn and badminton net – we mentioned one night that we might play croquet and badminton the next morning and by the time we had finished breakfast outside in the sun they had already got all the equipment out for us! We also did a day trip to an elephant orphanage (a couple of hours’ drive away) and to Kandy. Honestly, this place is faultless. I can't think of a single thing it could improve. I would go back to Sri Lanka just to stay at Taylor’s Hill again. We were so sad to leave - it felt like home after just two days! Thank you for a fabulous stay!!

This is a superb boutique hotel with great rooms, delicious food, excellent service and beautiful, quiet surroundings. Our stay could not have been better. From the moment we saw the gardens and walked in we knew that this was quite different from all the other places we stayed in in Sri Lanka. Every detail is just right in this very spacious grand country house,which is kept to a very high standard. Decoration is tasteful but not staid, everything is in very good condition and the staff are very attentive without being in any way overwhelming - just the right balance to make you feel as if the place is yours. We stayed 4 days, but I would have preferred to stay for 4 months.

We loved our night's stay at Taylor's hill, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was excellent. The room and location were brilliant too. It was great to get a taste of the lifestyle enjoyed by the colonial classes and later the Sri-Lankan elite. It felt slightly weird to us enjoying what must have been a very bi-polar time in life for those around then!

Unique, exceptional property situated amongst tea plantations. This is the old house of James Taylor, the father of tea-growing in Sri Lanka. The owners have really succeeded in keeping some of the old, colonial charm and blending it with a more modern approach. You almost feel like you are part of a Poirot episode, playing croquet and sipping afternoon tea in the garden. Everything, the rooms, the beautiful garden, the pool, the tennis field, as well as the staff, is great. Also, the food is really good, and you even have the opportunity to participate in a Sri Lankan cooking class! The service is exceptional, and you always feel very welcome. Nothing is a problem. Highly recommended!!!

Don't expect an easy drive to this wonderful hotel. It is hidden between tea plantations and can be reached after an exciting 75 minutes ride from Kandy. However, on your way you will see nice little villages, local communities outside crowded tourist areas and you will get a sense of the real life in Sri Lanka. The hotel is a gem. We had a beautifully decorated suite with a nice view. The restaurant and lounge areas are charming. The quality of service was personal, authentic and absolutely perfect. We felt like being in our own home from the beginning. We were surprised about the excellent quality of the food, something you do not expect in such a remote location. We highly recommend to visit the tea factory and tea plantations close to the hotel. If you need a rest from your visit to the cultural triangle, choose this place. You can completely relax for a few days and continue your tour re-energized.
