Our Reviews

Don’t just take our word for it… here’s what our past guests have had to say…

Reviewed 9 October 2016, TripAdvisor

Our two families spent the most amazing week at Strathisla, we used it as a base to do Kandy, Sigiriya, Knuckles ranges and Victoria Golf course but the best part was just relaxing at the homestead enjoying the pool and beautiful hills. Priya cooked us all our meals and couldn’t fault them, such variety and was a great twist on the usual Sri Lankan food and they even had vegemite!!!! They also catered for our small children at no additional cost.

The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated and the communal areas are very welcoming. Jeyakumar and his family were there to assist us with all our needs and organised our day trips, highly recommend the walk with Jeyakymar around the local area and tea estate. Have already recommended to our family and friends to stay here and will definitely be back.

We stayed at Strathisla at the beginning of our 3 week vacation in Sri Lanka and we absolutely loved it. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip: the house is fantastic, the garden exquisite, the pool beautifully integrated, the veranda perfect for relaxing.

Jkumar and Priya are wonderful hosts and Priya’s food was the very best we had in Sri Lanka. If you are thinking of staying more than one night in Kandy, don’t 🙂 Just book the other night(s) here. It’s off the beaten path, but not far from Kandy and Matale. We cannot recommend Strathisla highly enough!

Arriving by chance at this beautiful Boutique Ancestral Home, we were welcomed warmly by Mr Kumar and his wife for a splendid, reasonably-priced and delicious traditional Sri-Lankan Lunch, in what is possibly the loveliest Country House Hotel I’ve seen in all of Sri Lanka, having travelled extensively over the island for many years. It is the ancestral home of the family who run it.

Located in a beautiful valley close to the National Spice Gardens of Sri Lanka, Strathisla Tea Estate is a fine old manor house sympathetically restored, with magnificent views and very fine gardens extending to 25 acres. Everything is grown on the estate, and the furnishings inside are antique traditional, with high ceilings and noble old wooden floors. It’s a place I did not want to leave, even though Mr Kumar was complaining the wild monkeys were nibbling his nutmegs!

Highly recommended… Should be 5-Stars, not 4.5.

And I will go again and again, and wish I could stay there forever.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views of the valleys and jungle.
