I could spend 30 minutes scribing about how magic is this place, but i will only brief: Me and my partner felt like we were in a grandmothers house,part of the family, being spoiled with amazing service and great food! Very good option for low budget travellers. Thank you very much. Rebeca and Eduardo From Brazil.

We've found this place occasionally and left it with the warmest feelings. We felt like home during our stay with this wonderful family. The owners are a hospitable and decent couple whom we could address in a case of any problem. Below is my small resume. * Traveling format: - budget trip around Sri Lanka.

I read the all other comments about Hill Way Tour inn, it seems to me that they show a mixed feeling about staying in this budget hotel, I am staying here for 10 days with an extension of 3 more days, I booked on internet so I was prepared to any surprise, the place was built during the colonial era,...

We booked this place in advance just because it was our first night when we arrived to Sri Lanka. What a terrible mistake ! There are many more options all around Kandy with the same price. Fortunately we stayed only 1 night. There was only one more couple, the room was dirty, don´t even talk about bathroom, just disgusting.. The... More

We decided to go to this place because it was kind of cheap, and for our low budget travelling it was a good option! But from the beggining it became a nightmare: in the website it says is about 15min walk from the bus terminal, lie! it took us 50min up the hill, without any help as nobody seemed to... More

In short: do not go here. Do not make the same mistake as us. We were a group of three staying in one room. The only positive thing about the whole stay was that the room was big but it didn't really help as we didn't want to stay there at all. During our three nights of this disasterous stay... More

The location of hill way is pretty as it's on the hill but a little inconvenient as a tuk tuk is almost essential to get into town. The family who run the guest house are very nice and hospitable. We were in a room upstairs with a nice shower with hot water but the bed was very very uncomfortable and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and payed 1500 for the room per night. They also have a menu and serve drinks. Note that everything has 10% charge of service including the room. We also did the laundry (not big) and it was Rs 425. The owners are very nice and helpful, even if they don't seem at the first... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and quite liked it. It was good value for money all in all we ended up paying 12 000 Rs including breakfast. The inn is run by Mr. and Mrs. Silva, but the boss seems to be Mrs. Silva. She was always asking us if everything is OK and if we needed anything. The... More

We travelled around Sri Lanka for three weeks staying in budget accommodation the whole time. Of all the places we stayed this is the only place I would not recommend to others. The sheets were dirty. There were cockroaches in the bedroom & shower room There were worms on the floor in the bathroom Irritatingly they kept turning off the... More
