www.watoday.com.au announce top 10 weirdest hotels

Tea Factory, Sri Lanka is at the 6th place in top 10 weirdest hotels list which announced by www.watoday.com.au.

Here is another example of a historic building being converted into an appealing hotel, on a 25 acre (10.12 acre hectares) estate at an altitude of 2,200m in the misty mountains of the Nuwara Eliya region of Sri Lanka.
It maintains the ambience of the long-gone colonial era - tea-growing and packing began here in the days of the British Raj in the 1800s.

The hotel's restaurant is in the old sifting and grading room, and the bar used to be the packing room.The four-star, 57-room hotel is run on a "green" philosophy, with energy-efficient lighting and power cut-off switches, plus quality protection and noise control

Guests can visit surrounding tea plantations, the mountains and their waterfalls, a wildlife sanctuary and a national park, trekking or travelling by horseback or bicycle.
