We stayed here for one night on our first visit to Kandy and enjoyed it so much we stayed for another two on our way back to the airport. The hotel is about a 10/15 minute tuktuk ride from Kandy City Centre and the hotel manager has his own tuktuk and will take you wherever you need to go for... More

It's located at a nice and quiet area, around 15 min tuktuk ride from the centre. The room we had was amazing, all was clean and the mattress was very comfortable. We arrived there quite late but the owner still liked to cook some delicious chicken rice for us. Good value for the money!

We had reservations for the Hills Lodge, but unfortunately there was a fault of the hotel and we could not stay there. The manager arranged a solution and we stayed in another hotel. They tried the most to minimize the damage, which leads me to praise the concern they had with us. I hope to stay there next time.

Here are 10 good reasons to stay at The Hills Lodge: 1. Escape the hustle and bustle of Kandy to the relaxed, peaceful and picturesque hills but within an easy 10min tuk tuk from the centre of kandy 2. Some fantastic, friendly and helpful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. 3. Delicious dinners. The string hoppers and Dahl and chicken... More

At first, we didn't find the guesthouse : it was very hard to find up in the hills, with a few signs to help us. But once we got there it was worth the visit : a clean hotel , friendly staff ( Kumar ) and a decent breakfast for 500rps. Worth it's value..

Great view, very clean rooms, high ceilings. Such great value! We arrived quite late and only stayed for one night, but would've liked to stay for more. Would award 4.5 stars if tripadvisor allowed it!

Nice view, spacious rooms, friendly staff. Yet it could be better. The fact that our breakfast was scheduled for 7:30am and the staff just started to prepare it around 8am is a minor issue that can be overseen. Even so it says something about the management. The guesthouse is outside of Kandy, a little drive up the hills. The price-value... More

It's probably the most funny experience of being in Sri Lanka... because of the manager in the hotel. To say he was trying to delight us to say nothing ))) We were offered by everything even we didn't thought! Do we want another room with a better view? Or maybe a coconut? Or maybe show you the best place to... More
