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!

Thanks god, staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We came late at the night time (by car) and didn't mention (but, we had to!) till booking that it is really at the top of the hill. Finally we've being lost and call for help. It was a good idea, because, you have to be a perfect mounting driver to be... More

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

Pretty nice place. The service is very personal with your own "manager-uncle" advising you if you should shave today or not. Very attentive,and helpful, but lack professionalism. Highly recommended. Please make sure you you get the room you reserved.

Perched high above Kandy, this small lodge is attractively decorated, clean and comfortable. I slept with the balcony door open to take in the fresh air and gentle breeze. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Wifi worked well although I much preferred gazing out at the view over Kandy.
