Driver Accommodation

We are a small homestay and can not accommodate drivers and we don't have enough staff to cater for them. There is a family run guest house in the village and we are happy to book a driver room on your behalf for a small additional charge and organise a free pick up for your driver so that his vehicle can be safely parked in our garden. The family can provide local meals and normally the driver will pay for his own food.

Rs 800 (room only)

Note: payment for driver accommodation can only be made in local currency

Pick up service from Bandarawela Railway Station

The closest Railway Station to Clove Tree is Bandarawela, we are happy to organise a trishaw or van to collect you.

Prices vary according to the number of people. Please ask us for an approximate quote.

Children and Families

Due to the intimate nature of the bungalow we can't cater for families with children under 5 years of age.

In order to spread out and relax, we recommend that family groups book the whole bungalow.

Pets and Animals

We have two friendly dogs Mouse and Tigger who love going on walks with our guests and Sushi the cat who prefers to lie in the sun.

Our pets are not allowed in the house but will sneak in from time to time so if you have allergies we can't guarantee that you won't be affected.
