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.

Lovely house up in the mountains with incredible views of Kandy. The owner was delightful and the food he served us in the evening was delicious. The room was small but perfectly adequate with a comfortable bed. Highly recommend.

After a few days of travelling in the country we were totally tired of dark, cold and overpriced hotels (because you just have no chance to find smth good near Adam's Peak or Nuwara Elia). And we were so happy to stay here and really upset that make a booking only for one day. Here for 35$ we've got a... More

The Hills Lodge is a nice, new Villa with 6 rooms about 4 km (2km on a very bad little road) outside Kandy with a very nice view from the Deluxe Rooms. My Deluxe Room was very big and quiet, the AC efficient (although a bit noisy). The bed was very comfortable. For breakfast and dinner there is a choice... More

We stayed at this guest house toward the end of March, 2013 for two nights. It was a great experience for the both of us. The staff at the Lodge was outstanding. They took care of everything for us and were very helpful with advice on getting around Kandy and other parts of the area. The rooms were gigantic and... More
