A short distance from the town, perched on Orr's Hill, this is the oldest hotel in Trincomalee. Resplendent in its old world charm, the Welcombe is set with a background of the mighty Indian Ocean and speaks of a history that began in the 1930s. The Welcombe was the dream child of British entrepreneur Mr. M.S. Milne.
After 70 years the scene that meets the eye is still as resplendent as it was then.
