    Our opinion

    Jetwing St. Andrew’s is a comfortable hotel, full of colonial charm, excellent value, and ideal for golf and touring holidays.

    Hotel description

    Jetwing St. Andrew’s is a 52-bedroom hotel offering old world charm in the hill station of Nuwara Eliya. The 100-year-old stately mansion at the heart of the building retains its patterned-tile floors and colonial décor whilst simply furnished, yet comfortable, bedrooms populate the wings. Whilst Nuwara Eliya enjoys warm temperatures of up to 25C during the day, the nights can drop to a chilly 10C, so a roaring fire is lit in the hotel lounge and blankets and heaters are provided in the bedrooms. The Old Course restaurant at Jetwing St. Andrew’s boasts a walk-in wine cellar and a show kitchen where you can watch chefs preparing your meal. There is also a licensed bar and high tea on the terrace where you can drink your way through the hotel’s extensive menu of fine teas. Set in sloping grounds, Jetwing St. Andrew’s has its own terraced vegetable garden (partly organic), a few goats and cows, as well as a model wetland where dragonflies and tree frogs meet. Jetwing St. Andrew’s is an ideal base for enjoying Nuwara Eliya and the surrounding hill country. You can walk into town with its market, racecourse, roaming ponies and quirky shops, and play golf at the scenic Nuwara Eliya Golf course, whose fairways can be seen from some of the windows of the hotel.
