Heritance Tea Factory Hotel

4 star
Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka

Hotel Overview

Stay in this appealing converted tea factory, pluck your own tea and take it home with you as a souvenir. At 2km above sea level, the views over our lush green organic plantations as the sun mingles with the mist are truly unforgettable. Enjoy them as you tuck into high tea on the terrace or a delicious tea-themed menu in the restaurant.

Heritance Tea Factory Hotel is situated in the heart of the mountain range that gave the world pure Ceylon tea, and was built in the days of the British Raj. Its conversion from a living factory to a modern 4* hotel whilst preserving much of the original style and machinery, is appealing to its many guests who can still observe some of its workings.

All 54 comfortable rooms, spread over  four floors, have been converted from the former 'withering' lofts where tea was dried, have full-length windows and  are flooded with natural light,  providing spectacular views of the surrounding tea plantations and enjoy free wi-fi access, tea/coffee making and 24-hour room service.  The fourth floor is the Executive (non-smoking) floor with extra privileges, the larger Premium rooms have a double aspect with even better views, whilst Executive floor Deluxe rooms enjoy the best views from the top floor and butler service.  There are also lovely suites on request suitable for families.

Customer Hotel Reviews

J Gerken says:

Well we asked for diversity in our holiday and that's what we got!! We started off by visiting the Sigirya Rock Fortress and then the temples at Polonnaruwa to get into the history and culture of Sri Lanka along with the Rangiri Dambulla Cave Temple whilst on route to Kandy. Kandy is home to the temple that holds the ToothRelic and is not to be missed along with a visit to the cultural show and The Royal Botanical Gardens. Then off to the mountains to visit the tea plantations for freshly picked tea, fabulous views and a delicious lunch overlooking a stunning waterfall. We stayed at the Heritance Tea Factory Hotel here which is very quirky. A meal on the train behind the hotel was so much fun, the Guard being the star of the show! Next we travelled to Udawalawe National Park which was fantastic, we saw so many elephants, water buffalo, jackal and birds but sadly no leopards.

Yala was our next destination for another safari, this one was much busier with jeeps everywhere and very little wildlife to be seen for obvious reasons, although a deer did stop by the hotel swimming pool for a drink and crocodiles slept on the banks of the lake!Our last stop on Sri Lanka was at Galle which was wonderful, lots of intriguing little lanes to explore down and history to soak up. All our hotels were fabulous, the food and the service excellent, our favourite being Fort Printers in Galle followed closely by Cinnamom Lodge in Habrana. We had a guide for all our time here who was good company, informative, and took us to all the best restaurants for lunch!! The Maldives were heavenly, a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as we left for home means I hope one day I will be lucky enough to return to this wonderful place! Thank you Anna Rushbrooke for arranging the most wonderful of holidays you certainly exceeded our expectations, hope to travel with Western & Oriental again soon!!

How do I talk to a specialist in Sri Lanka holidays?

We are happy to give you a call back to discuss your holiday at a convenient time for you or we welcome you to come to our office in central London to discuss your holiday in detail.

I don’t know what board basis to book. Can I eat out locally, should I consider All Inclusive?

It's always a difficult decision to make before you travel. Call one of our destination experts, who will be happy to advise you on local restaurants and prices you can expect to pay in resort.

What can I do when I get there?

There are many excursions, activities and highlights that are not to be missed out on, whilst in the country. Please contact our experts for advise on whether to prebook these before travel.
