Originally built at the turn of the 20th century as the home of a tea estate manager, Ellerton has been sensitively restored and converted into a small boutique hotel and is set among 3.6 hectares of tea, coffee and spice plantations. The hotel retains much of its original character and charm, and offers superb views of the surrounding tropical plantation.
Ellerton has 7 rooms including 3 rooms in the main house which are furnished with period furniture and 3 rooms in the valley house that combine contemporary style with traditional furnishings. There is also a self-contained Garden room which has a private balcony. All rooms have private en-suite facilities, ceiling fans and mosquito nets. Other facilities at the hotel include a Dining Pavilion with striking valley views and an infinity pool.
Ellerton is approximately 30 minutes away from Kandy and is a convenient base to explore the Botanical Gardens and the sacred Temple of the Tooth.
