About the Hotel
Hotel Facilities
An elegant High Tea on a manicured lawn. Sip a stiff brandy by the blazing fire after a round of golf in the chill air. Is it England in the Days of the Raj? It may be the 21st century, but colonial splendour still reigns in all its past glory at the Grand Hotel. Built in 1891, this was the palatial residence of the former Governor of Sri Lanka, Sir Edward Barnes. Today we offer the ultimate in comfort and the best of traditions from the ‘good old days’ to all who seek the charms of our famed hill country landmark.

Old world charm and elegant comfort welcomes you in the 154 deluxe rooms, with peaceful views of misty hills. Superior luxury awaits in 3 Presidential Suites and 4 Junior Suites. From there, you can admire the beautifully laid out, award winning gardens where rare roses bloom. Hot baths and warm heating will keep you cosy in the cold nights, and with 24 hour room service at hand, a steaming frothy cocoa is yours, even past midnight.

Here, a truly magnificent and extensive array of gourmet cuisine from the west and the east is yours to indulge in. The expansive Main Restaurant (Barnes Hall) offers equally vast buffets – breakfast, lunch and dinner with show kitchens that create your choice of fare to perfection. Offering both Western and Eastern menus, its reputation is legendary. The Supper Club Bar offers a headier atmosphere with music and dancing, while the Lounge is more intimate, with a la carte meals. The Coffee Shop with its blazing hearth serves light meals and snacks throughout the day. At nightfall, slip back a century or more at the Traditional Bar for some fine old malt and a game of Billiards while a hearty log fire looks on. Enjoy a unique dining experience at The Grand Indian Restaurant, with authentic time-honored dishes.

Restaurant
Our main restaurant and wrap yourself around a succulent steak served with garden fresh greens, ripe red tomatoes and baby potatoes followed by a dessert of bread pudding stacked full of dried fruits. Chase away the chill with a cup of hot chocolate or something stronger, as you sink back in a comfortable armchair by a crackling log fire – this indeed is heaven on earth. The Main Restaurant located on the ground floor of the hotel, overlooks the beautiful gardens, and offers a wide choice in both Western and Eastern cuisine.

Traditional Bar
The Public Bar is probably the most popular meeting place where guests gather to share anecdotes over a glass of the stuff that sends spirits soaring. It is located right next to the Billiard Room which has 3 Billiard tables of international size and standards. The winds might howl outside, but guests are kept comfortably warm both inside and out, as they sip their drinks by a blazing log fire.

Grand Coffee Shop
The Coffee Shop is also on the ground floor, located close to the Main Restaurant and specializes in serving light meals and snacks.

Facilities
Our setting maybe colonial, but our amenities are definitely modern – with cable TV, Mini Bar, high speed internet access and IDD phones including the standard hotel services from laundry, safety deposit boxes and currency exchange to concierge; 24 hour reception and room service. There’s a health centre and a small shopping arcade and Tennis for the more active; and of course the famed Golf Course, right opposite the hotel. We offer banquet and conference facilities for up to 200 guests and a Business Centre for the corporate traveller. With the charming traditional atmosphere and the extensive gardens, we are also the popular choice for local weddings
