Nice spacious hotel, with lots of Chinese, Russian and Arab guests. Rooms are ok, interior a bit run down. Nice pool, although during our stay they were permanently cutting the trees, reconstructing the pavement etc. Nice and big restaurant with very big buffet. Since they know that guests, due to permanent traffic jams in Kandy won't go far to eat... More

not those fake topclass overly luxurious hotel. This place was simple, clean and had a character. Beautifully built on the hilltop- as the name says excellent view of the lake and the hills and the Big Budha Statue. One stop to see Kandy thru birds-eye view. Staff was helpful and sweet. The food was great with a lot of continental... More

Hotel Hiltop is located in a great location in the city of Kandy. The rooms are average and the bathrooms are not very good, although general cleanliness was allright. The hotel has a good and spacious restaurant with a beautiful view, where they serve great breakfast and dinner buffets. However, the hotel frequently hosts weddings/ functions and can be very...

Enjoyed our stay at Hill Top. Very homely, not modern though. We were very impressed with the room. Quite spacious. The washroom was not bad too. Was not too happy with the buffet at dinner but enjoyed the live music. The pool was very average. Our room was on the main road side and was disturbed early morning by the... More

Can't comment on value as this was part of a tour. Can say that the staff are friendly and pool was pleasant enough. Problem was that the showers in all our rooms flooded. The bathrooms are small. If you come here make sure you get upper rooms over looking pool. I imagine these rooms are nicer. Evening buffet food average.

True to its name, Hilltop is located on a hill offering a beautiful of Kandy City. Although not far from city centre, the climb up the road is indeed tiresome. No complaints on room though. Big and clean. Our room offered a good view too. The breakfast spread was very good and tasty with lots of choices and local delicacies.... More

Nice hotel considering the tarrif, location is very good, famous Kandy lake and tooth temple is 10-15 minute walk . Rooms are big and breakfast is nice. Bathroom is relatively small but its OK. They have a nice pool and a bar. In room dining is below average so try somewhere else for your meal.

I'm not sure about the ratings of this hotel in Kandy but this property should be up there for sure, not literally but actually. One would love the drive up to the hotel. And to look at the city from the hilltop when it rains is one of the most beautiful sights. The rooms are nice, the staff is cordial,... More
